In this chapter, you began work on an iOS application. Before doing anything in Xcode, we decided what the app would do and what it would look like.
When that was done, you knew enough to have Xcode create the project. You explored the Project editor and saw how it managed the configuration of the application. Then you explored the files Xcode’s template provided and used the Search navigator to track down and simultaneously repair a bad copyright notice in seven files.
The “empty” application Xcode provided was runnable; you found that running it launched the iOS Simulator, which allowed you to use the app.
Finally, you prepared the app for your own work by adding the passer_rating function from the passer-rating project.
Now you’re ready to make the empty app your own to start implementing the design you put together in this chapter. We’ll start with the model.
