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!

Thanks for the great lesson! You explain everything very clearly. A question – while selecting aspect fill will resize the image to fill the image view, is there a way to adjust the original image left or right so that you can center your images in the image view?

Did you download it from the App Store or a website?Xcode is available on the App Store but app change language based on the Mac settings. Make sure your computer is set to English.
