Learn how to make an app even if you have no programming experience!

This is a 10 part video series designed for beginners in mind to teach the fundamental skills for making apps on iOS.

In this lesson, I’ll show you how to position elements using Stack Views.

Stack Views allow you to position elements inside it without specifying constraints.

This can be a huge time saver when it comes to building the user interface for your own app.

In this lesson, you’ll build another user interface; this time, taking advantage of Stack Views for positioning.

You can download the Image Assets and Xcode Project from here:

How to Make an App for Beginners (Lesson 3)

The lesson plan for the How To Make an App series can be found on my site here:

How To Make An App (for beginners) – Start Here

This video series uses the latest and greatest from Apple (Xcode 9, Swift 4, iOS 11) and will teach a beginner with no programming experience how to make iPhone apps. I’m creating these videos with the assumption that the student has no prior knowledge and is starting from scratch.

For more tutorials on how to build iPhone apps, make sure you subscribe and visit my site where you’ll find a community of like minded learners! Learning something new is always more fun with other people!

Quick Question! How did you create your image assets? Can you make a video explaining the process so I could create them for the rest of the suits? Thanks and great video!

Hi Chris, Thank you for your educational videos. Question: If I'm using the cloud version of Mac and my keyboard is a PC where I don't have that command key.. what key can I use instead? Thanks so much!

Hey Chris, enjoying your tutorial and thanks for sharing your wisdom with us! I'm having problems when adding constraints – my labels and images don't seem to reposition as they should and often disappear out of the view. Is there something I'm missing? Using Xcode version 8.2.1 as this is the latest that will work on my mac. Thank you!

Hey Richard, hmm it should work very similarly on Xcode 8 too. I suspect that your constraints might be incorrect. If you send me your project, i can take a look for you. Simply use the "contact" link in the footer of my site and send me an email!
