I have recently picked up the hobby of app development and have realized that it is much harder than I thought! The code input is kind of confusing and one small coding mistake can cause your ENTIRE app to crash! I mean one letter or a punctuation! I know that's just the way it works, but I think I'll need much more practice to finally get it right!
The program I have been using is Xcode
, a app development application designed by Apple for developers. So far I think it is quite a cool program, just the coding part of it is extremely difficult for me at the moment! The part that I have been looking at was the "Interface Builder" that allows you to design the user interface of the app. I can tell you that it is a much easier place to be for me at the moment than the coding part!
The coding program that I have been using since grade 5 though is Scratch
. It has a much more "student-friendly" interface that simplifies the coding part into puzzle like pieces that you put together, resulting in a code that creates a animation! I really like Scratch, and still use it a lot. I even used it in my recent science assignment to show my understanding in the "States of Matter". Here is the animation I created in Scratch that was handed in:
