Build an iPhone or iPad App that uses Google Maps
then Drop Some Bombs on it!
This tutorial teaches you how to build an App from scratch which creates a Google Map View that can display either your actual location or a specific location (for example, Atlanta). The Map View can be customized to any region or zoom and user interactions can be enabled or disabled. The course then adds objects (a scope, crater, and explosion) which will move relative to the map as it updates. This is the foundation of any number of possible games or apps that interact with satelite maps in a unique way. And much of what is taught in this lesson was used to create the instructor's own app, Zombie Air Strike.
The tutorial also covers using the compass heading, addingmap annotations, touch interaction, animated images, arrays, timers, using Interface Builder, and tons more.
As always the tutorial movie is in high definition, and the XCode source files are included. This course was taught by Justin Dike, owner and lead instructor at CartoonSmart.
