Programming can mean a number of different things, in fact anyone who has changed settings in an application could have said to have programmed a computer, so I am here to distinguish what I
When I first started iOS development, I found it easy to cut images out of photoshop files to use for buttons and other graphical element, and although there is nothing wrong with this approach in some cases its simply not the best method when considering the download size of your app, and the CPU and
