Create an iOS Application

The basic steps for creating an empty iOS application are as follows:

  • Launch XCode. Once launched, selct File->New->Project
  • A dialog box will appear. Select iOS - Application in the leftmost area, and select the empty application template in the rightmost area. Click next.
  • A second dialog box will appear. Fill it out as described here:

  • Specify a location to create the project, such as ~/home/someuser/dev/GasCanManager
  • At this point, an empty application will be created.

In the next step, I'll add a view to this Application.

Note: If a single view is needed, it's possible to select the "Single View Application" template. However, since I'm building something larger, I prefer to start with a blank application.
