Teaching App Development with Swift


Level 3, Five Lessons

Introduce students to WebKit, and show them how to integrate a UIWebView within their apps. Practice using delegates, delegation and protocols to implement app behavior.

The Finished App

Familiarize yourself with the project, and demonstrate the app students will build.

Lesson 1

Demonstrate how one app can bring another app to the foreground using specific URLs, as a vehicle for practicing optional binding.

Lesson 2

Demonstrate the web view component, and how it can display web content within an app interface. Practice applying Auto Layout constraints.

Lesson 3

Introduce toolbars and other controls, revealing opportunities to adjust Auto Layout constraints. Using a text field, introduce the different keyboard types that afford different types of user input.

Lesson 4

Emphasize delegates, delegation and protocols, particularly for handling text field interaction.

Lesson 5

Demonstrate how some interface element behaviors may be bound directly to other interface elements.
