In this video series, I’ll show you how to connect an iPhone app to MySQL. We’ll go through it step by step starting from the beginning.

You’ll learn how to:
– Sign up for web hosting
– Create a new MySQL database
– Set up a MySQL database user
– Set access permission for that user
– Create a PHP web service to access the data
– Create an iOS app with a tableview, multiple screens and a map
– Access the PHP web service via the app to download the data from your MySQL database.

This is a video version of the tutorial here:

Building the app is easy part but getting downloads is the real deal. One app store called Vshare (iappsbuzz.com/vshare) promotes new apps and bring them huge exposure for free

an other reason why MySQL is preferred: when writing internal apps in a corporate environment, there are restrictions where you can store the data. In these cases if you start storing corporate data on an external database (such as Firebase) you will most likely get "lectured" by the IT department.

Hey Chris! Im not sure if you have any videos dealing in this.. But im stuck trying to figure out how to save an array to an app so when i close the app and open it back up the array will show up on my table. Is this going to be core data?

I was able to figure it out. I used Userdefaults which is apparently able to store things like user settings to the app as long as its installed.. soo yeah. If anyone else needed that info there you go. let defaults = UserDefaults.standard// in override functionlet array = defaults.object(forKey: "savedArray") as [string?]// in function where you save your array or whateverdefaults.set(self.userInput.text, forKey: "savedArray") defaults.synchronize()
