In App Design and Development for iOS, the third course of the iOS App Development with Swift specialization, you will be developing foundational programming skills to support graphical element presentation and data manipulation from basic functions through to advanced processing. You will continue to build your skill set to use and apply core graphics, touch handling and gestures, animations and transitions, alerts and actions as well as advanced algorithms, threading and more. By the end of this course you will be able to develop a more advanced, fully functioning app.

Currently this course is taught using Swift 2. The team is aware of the release of Swift 3 and will be making edits to the course in time. Please be aware that at this time the instruction is entirely with Swift 2.

    Instructor talks very fast, without any prepared noted, just a bunch of mumblings. You can find much better instructions on youtube. If this instructor kid had these videos for free on youtube I would not watch them. The online quizzes are a disaster, put together without any connection to material, seems that the only though was to make questions as confusing as possible.
    I highly recommend to stay away and dont waster your money. Go to youtube and find Stanford - Developing iOS 8 Apps with Swift
