This book covers iOS 11 app design fundamentals using the latest Swift 4 programming language, Xcode 9 and iOS 11 SDK. The author assumes you have no experience in app development. The book starts with the installation of the required programming environment and setting up the simulators. Then, the simplest "Hello World" app is developed step by step. In the next chapter, basics of the Swift 4 programming language are given with practical examples. Screenshots and code snippets are clearly given in the book to guide the reader. After the Swift lecture, 7 real world apps are developed again by step by step instructions. Each code line is explained. As the reader follows the development of the example apps, he/she will learn designing user interfaces, connecting interface objects to code, developing efficient Swift code and testing the app in simulators and real devices. Sample apps developed in this book are as follows: 1. Disco lights app: Learn the basics of app development and use buttons in your code. 2. Body mass index (BMI) calculator app: Using input boxes, performing calculations and displaying the results on the screen. 3. Simple die roller app: Using random number generator functions, including image sets in your project, displaying images on the screen and changing the displayed image using Swift code. 4.
