Appcoda started out with weekly tutorials to show you how to build an app. The weekly tutorials are very detailed with step by step procedures. So far the feedbacks about the tutorials and our free iOS development course are very positive. But some readers suggested us to take one step further and create mini tutorials to answer some common iOS development questions such as how to change the color of navigation bar or color of UIbutton. Thanks for the suggestions. From this week onwards, we’ll start a new series – iOS Programming 101. Every week, we’ll publish a short tutorial to answer a common question raised in the comment area or forum.
As a fresh start of the series, we’ll show you how to hide the tab bar in a navigation-based app. Several weeks ago, we developed the tab bar app. In that tutorial, we embed the navigation controller inside the tab bar controller. So when user taps on any of the recipes, the navigation controller pushes to the detail view.
