This is the second part of the Developing Your FIrst iPhone App video series that I am creating, specifically in this video I go through the simple design process i use in order to cut down on my development time. It is important to know exactly where you’re headed before you write your first line of code, it’s been said that at least 1/3rd of your development time should be spent on design.
While I don’t believe in any hard and fast rules as to how much time you should spend on design coding blindly is usually a bad idea.
Basically for simple apps I go through a 4 step process which involves creating:
1) An Objective Statement
2) A List of Features
3) A Basic Scenario
4) A Definition of the Class Structure
Check out the video:
