My First iPhone Hello World App

Wyatt • • Rants

I finally managed to get a functional “hello world” app created for the iPhone and added up on my site. The problem I was having was not only were several tutorials out on the Internet incorrect (i.e., using really old unsupported techniques), but Apple’s code didn’t quite seem to give me enough information.

I started mine completely from scratch with an Xcode iPhone view based application, went through the process of adding my IBOutlet connecting it up, and then took the extra step of exercising some memory management in Cocoa Touch (something I couldn’t find many places). I’ve tacked it up on my iPhone development section for your viewing pleasure.
