A guide to using Apple's new programming language with the JSON web service to pull real results from IMDb.
Building an app is an exciting process, but connecting your app to the web opens up a world of possibilities and gives your users access to the content of their choice while keeping them in your app. This provides a clean and enjoyable user experience, which is what software should really be all about in the first place.

In this course, you can not only expect to learn how to use Swift and Xcode 6 to build an application, but also how to leverage web services like JSON so your users can perform in-app searches for real IMDb content.

Using Swift to Build an IMDb Search App should only take a few hours of your time, but will establish best practices that will make app development in Swift not only easier, but more enjoyable for you - and your users.

If you're tired of taking the same old "To-Do List App" tutorial and want to learn how to open your application up to the web, then this is the course for you. We'll walk through each step of the process together and I will be available through the Udemy forums for any support you may require or questions you may have along the way.

Hope to see you inside!
