So you want to make apps but you don't know where to start. You start a few tutorials on the internet but you end up without an app or any knowledge whatsoever.

If you want to make apps you pretty much have to use Xcode, Apple's app-making program. But when you download it and take a look it seems really complicated to use. There are tons of books on how to program and use Xcode but none of them are that user-friendly.

User experience is one of the toughest jobs to fill in 2012 according to Forbes. With this course you get to learn mobile user experience and Xcode at the same time!
