This is the place for customers on the App Store to ask for help, suggest enhancements or provide feedback. It is also where I occasionally muse about my experience as a budding iOS app developer.

Babtun’s Ayo, now in its third version, is proof that you can learn how to code from scratch using online courses available free of charge. This is exactly what I did (see Credits). It is not easy, especially when you get stuck. In fact, it can be quite frustrating. The worst case for me: I spent ten days agonising over a semantic error (the program works, but not the way I want it to) before I managed to resolve it. For syntax errors (the program crashes), Google and Stack Overflow were indispensable tools. Someone somewhere had encountered something similar before.

If you are interested in learning how to code online, why not try Prof. Gutag’s course? It is an excellent broad introduction to the basics of computer science. Many websites offer tutorials on how to develop apps, but few can beat Ray Wenderlich’s site for iOS development.

My plan is to continue developing apps that entertain, make life easy in some way or, best of all, do both.

Thanks very much for your visit.
