Apple Watch is changing the face (pun intended) of user interaction and design. But developing its next generation of apps also requires having a foot in the still-vibrant world of iOS. Lucky for you budding Watch whizzes, we’ve found a bundle of 5 courses that bridge the worlds of wearable and mobile development, by teaching essential skills through building real, working apps on both platforms. And right now it’s going for 93% off, $25 at Cult of Mac Deals.
A complete Apple Watch overview course eases into programming for iOS 9 and 8, Swift, Objective-C, WatchKit, Xcode, all the essential aspects of how iPhone and Apple Watch work and communicate. After that, the real fun begins. By developing games for the Watch and iPhone — a slot machine, memory game, pinball — you’ll learn to put those elements into practice, designing interfaces, tweaking the open source code, adding graphics and sound, even posting the results on the App Store. Plus, you’ll make your very own KITT (as in Knight Rider) communicator, linking your iPhone and Apple Watch’s apps and messaging functions, proving once and for all that the future predicted in 80s television has finally arrived.
Don’t be left in other app developers’ dust, get up to speed with Apple Watch and iOS for just $25.
Bonus Deal: Even in the age of wearables we carry around a lot of stuff, but the Wally Stick-On for iPhone can help you downsize by adding a sleek leather credit card wallet to the back of your phone.
