This course is an introduction to touch and motion events in iOS. This course will give you a detailed overview of how touch and motion events are delivered through the system. We will go through implementing touch handlers, and utilizing gesture recognizers to create various gestures so your users can interact with the content on the screen in various and intuitive ways. We will discuss advanced techniques such as handling multi-touch events and transitioning to/from gestures and animations. Finally, we will utilize motion events and look at Core Motion to get raw data from the accelerometer and gyroscope to use in our apps.
