Lesson 13 - iOS weather forecast app - GUI and basic classes
In the previous lesson, iOS ToDo app in Swift - Database migrations and sorting, we finished a ToDo app for iOS that uses a database.
In today's Swift tutorial, we're going to create a simple weather forecast
app. The app will determine the user's location, search for the
current weather using a web service based on this location, and
display it. As a bonus, we'll have a look at saving data to
UserDefaults, which is going to be useful for individual weather
values. Also, we'll learn to save and load images.
