Learn Mastering iOS Development - Motion Framework at your own speed
(PRWEB) November 16, 2014
Software training firm Infinite Skills Inc. this week introduced its "Mastering iOS Development - Motion Framework Tutorial," an advanced-level course designed for iOS app developers that teaches the basic protocols in Apple's software development kit (SDK) for interacting with motion sensors in iOS 8.
iOS includes a core motion framework that makes it possible for apps to receive and process motion information from the device's hardware. The 2014 release of the iOS SDK includes enhancements such as an altimeter and motion activity. The framework allows apps to communicate with all of the motion sensors in iPhone and iPad, including the accelerometer, and motion activity.
Infinite Skills' "Mastering iOS Development - Motion Framework Tutorial" provides instruction and examples for each of these options, allowing developers to begin including motion sensor interactivity in their iOS apps after just a few short lessons.
Course author Keith Welch has spent more than 30 years working in the software industry, with 10 years working in .NET technologies, and the last 10 years focusing on mobile development. His many proficiencies include iOS, Android, Windows Mobile, ASP.NET, and more. Welch currently specializes in mobile developer tools, development consulting, and custom app development.
After providing an overview of the core motion framework in the iOS 8 SDK, Welch takes each sensor one-by-one, demonstrating the protocols for programing your app to interact with the accelerometer and gyroscope.
The course also demonstrates how to use the compass to establish location and direction, and how to program apps to display current location on a map.
"Motion sensors are a critical part of many apps and app genres," Welch says. "For instance, a social networking app might use GPS to provide location information, while gaming apps generally work with the accelerometer and gyroscope."
"This course will focus on what's usable on the device, using sample apps to demonstrate the Core Motion Framework."
