Building iOS Interfaces

via Udacity


In this course, you'll learn the best practices for creating iOS interfaces. You'll build adaptive interfaces that conform to different display environments, animate UI elements and view transitions, and analyze designs from popular apps on the App Store.

Why Take This Course?

The best apps on the App Store have beautiful, coherent interfaces that are easy-to-use and a joy to navigate. Another important aspect of great interfaces is that they are universal and adapt to the various iOS form factors — from the smallest iPhones to the largest iPads. By taking this course, you will learn how to build interfaces that exhibit these qualities and give users something to rave about.


Creating Adaptive Layouts

In this lesson, you’ll learn how to take static interfaces and make them adaptive — so they can be displayed on any iPhone, iPad, or adaptation modes used for multi-tasking. You'll also learn the core mechanism for adaptivity, trail collections, and use them to layout your views. By the end of this lesson, you'll know how to create adaptive fonts, respond the text direction of a user's language, and even completely swap interfaces based on device orientation.
