Xcode – Images App

Screen Shot 2015-02-21 at 20.35.02

Here is a screen shot of a scrolling image table app that I created in a workshop. I used existing knowledge of table views, arrays, labels and constraints and learnt new features regarding images and parallax scrolling.

I think the app looks okay, but next time I would try using images of similar qualities. I would also experiment with adding more images to scroll through.

It was beneScreen Shot 2015-02-21 at 20.51.22ficial to learn about adding images as we may decide to use images within our app. It is important that the Magna Carta app is not full of lots of text, so the inclusion of images could help to make it more visually appealing and interesting for users. An app full with text could be quite boring and a dull experience for users, so dependant on the aimed audience the amount of text and images will differ.

Changing the view of the image is also an important features as it allows you to suitably position and scale the images. The layout of an app is important and something I need to take on board for the Magna Carta app. It is essential that users can easily use the app without difficulty and have a good experience using it. The layout needs to be well thought out as well as the ratio of text and images, of which will be dependant on who we aim our app at.

I added a scroll view to the app, so that you can scroll through various images. This features could be useful and I think it is important to incorporate common touch screen gestures into our app.

Here is the code:

From this, I will continue to create some mini apps, in order to further develop my knowledge and think of features that we could incorporate in our app to enhance the users experience.
