About 6 days ago I decided I was going to create an iPhone App in 24 hours or less and submit it to the Apple App store. My goal was to experience the full iOS app submission process. What I experienced was no surprise. Apple never seems to make anything a simple process the first time around, and this is coming from someone very tech savvy. I spent most likely a full hour and a half trying to submit the app after it was created. One error led to another in Xcode, or the tutorials I used to try to figure out why I was receiving an error was for an older version of Xcode. The entire process was a headache. However, I was determined to submit the app in 24 hours or less, so after a few hours I had finally submitted the app to the Apple App Store.
Since I only had 24 hours to create an app, the app itself is not that mind blowing, but again the main goal was to experience the process for submitting an iOS app to the Apple App Store. Since I am an Engineer, a common tool that we use to determine a resistor’s resistance value is a resistor calculator. A resistor calculator is the quickest way in my opinion, but you can also calculate the value in your head or on paper. So even though the app I created is very simplistic, it is still a resourceful app to have on my iPhone if I ever need to calculate the resistance of a resistor quickly.

In all, I do believe the next time around will be a lot less cumbersome since I will know what to expect and how to deal with the problems I had the first time.
