This week, we get multiple view controllers involved in your apps. We’ll discuss and study modal view controllers today, including alerts, action sheets, and custom modal views. Then, we’ll move on to tab bar, and navigation-based app styles.


Prepare for today’s class

Show up on time. Be alert and mentally agile. Be prepared to learn.

If you wish, you can look at some of the introductory readings in the DPS913 Virtual Textbook.

And, you can go through the digital content linked below.
