Hi there,

Programming Experience


Let’s get intimate.

We understand. Your past relationships with learning iOS were superficial.

You hooked up with that hot iOS programming book and not three days into the relationship, you’re confused. You don’t know what you want any more. You have needs and it doesn’t understand. It came and it left, taking your $60 with it.

You’re on the rebound

Enter TinkerLearn.

TinkerLearn is the friend with mega-benefits.

Instead of written tutorials or videos, TinkerLearn gives you the geeky but sultry source code to real apps, written by the Mysterious Trousers team, allowing you to get straight to the point of learning iOS. TinkerLearn is so hot right now.

I spent my winter break trying to teach myself iOS programming. I purchased a book on iOS Development and another on Objective-C programming. Neither got me as far as your tutorial."

I like how the information is written inside of Xcode and promotes reading through the code. This is better than trying to read a separate guide and look at Xcode at the same time.”

I like the "dive in and do stuff" approach, and the explanation of all of the methods."

This is a very cool learning method. This is a great way to get familiar with the IDE itself while following the lessons, and generally a great hands-on way of learning.”

**Great tutorial for beginners!**”

Really fun! I feel like this is going to be an amazing way to learn about making iOS apps. Very excited to try more and more of these!”
