I've watched several "tutorials", but they mostly talked about overviews, features, submitting the app process, etc. … but no real how-to tutorials. So far it seems that you pretty much just have to read the APIs and figure it out yourself. But that's like reading the dictionary in order to write a short story. It doesn't help much beyond vocabulary. I need a "follow the instructions as you click here and add this code, then build …"
Anyway, I just need some beginning step-by-step tutorials for a couple of simple apps so I can figure out the workflow and what goes where. I've been unable to find any tutorials for version 1.0. And if the code doesn't build (like the code less than .09 I guess?) I can't really figure this out.
I'd recommend just playing with the Kitchen Sink demo app and then looking at its source code - you will get a better feel for how things work from there than any of the available tutorials IMHO.
The html/css has to do with one type of view, the web view, which is a webkit (browser) instance - the web view will reference an HTML file for its view content and there's where the html/css come into play. So the "develop your apps in html/css" is probably somewhat misleading in this sense, it confused me at first as well because I was lead to believe ALL UI content was done in html/css, which is not the case.
I think the Snapost video provides a good overview of a simple 1.0 app.
Download the samples and check out the codes.
I find that I learn fastest this way….
