An oldie but a goodie from CartoonSmart’s 2010 course on Xcode and iOS programming. The main difference in the Xcode of today and the one in the video is that Interface Builder was previously a separate app, but is now built into Xcode. Keep that in mind, and you shouldn’t have a problem.
This app creates the foundation of a Blackjack game. Press a button to make the dealer play, then press a button to draw a card for yourself. The logic is in place for a more polished Blackjack game for you to take the helm on.
You will learn about NSArrays, NSDictionary (what gives the cards their value) NSNotifications and of course plenty more. Source files for the Xcode project (reserved and upgraded July 2012) and Cards are available at…

This the first 40 minutes of a longer iPhone or iPad video tutorial at CartoonSmart.com . You’ll learn how to add a map view into your app, show your current location, define settings for it (zoom, user interactions, etc), and show your current compass heading.
In the full lesson we will then look at how to point them map at any location (a particular city), then automatically move through the city at a set speed. And the real fun part will be touching areas onscreen to run an animated explosion. Then areas you explode will have a crater that stays on the map and moves around as the map views (so its locked into that spot with the map). The full lesson is available here… CartoonSmart.com/iphone_mapkit.php5
A lot of this code was used to make this popular app… itunes.apple.com/us/app/zombie-air-strike/id349917595?mt=8
All CartoonSmart tutorials include a downloadable version of the HD video file and source files from the course to use our same artwork and code.
