Under the Bridge

Template: Newsreader

Feel like doing a newsreader style iPhone app? Well here we have for you something even better than sample code … an actual Xcode project template.

… The project is a starting point for creating your own tab-based newsreader apps: it includes a tab bar with 4 buttons each linked to a table view which you can fill with headlines.

Simply add a data model for your news feeds, then modify each pane’s controller class to display the data in the table view. Edit the 4 tab bar item icons, Default.png, and app icon to match your app’s theme, and you’re done.

Now that’s convenience, indeed!

    Hmmm, yes, that appears to have bitrotted.

    Well, hey, it wasn’t iOS 5 + ARC, so it’s too old school to be worthwhile now!
