If you want to learn computer programming, this is the place to start! Kevin and Bryan teach in a funny and exciting conversational style with visual explanations as they go. On occasion, they may actually tell a bad joke, sing poorly or include a ridiculous pop culture reference! But if that's ok, you will be rewarded with learning some very dry material, in a fun and exciting series of training videos.
WiBit.Net courses are based on a cumulative teaching model, so that our courses are often a continuation of a prerequisite course. Our materials are not intended to teach you how to program in a single language. We attempt to avoid duplication of prior materials, to build your skills from the C Language upwards. With this teaching model, you learn how to do something and why it is done that way! We try to make learning how to program easy and entertaining. We hope you enjoy what we have to offer!
Also, this application does not require an Internet connection, so you can learn at WiBit.Net no matter where you are!
***Disclaimer: This application only supports iPod and iPhone devices with a retina display or iPads. The is due to the minimum screen size required for the lessons to be legible.
This course will focus on the other popular “bolt-on” object oriented programming language: Objective-C. Just like C++, this language is attached to C. Even though this and C++ have a similar philosophy they are both extremely different languages.
We will be focusing on the Apple implementation of the language and use aspects of the Cocoa Framework. As we progress through this language you will be excelled through a series of basic labs from compiling on the command terminal and very quickly thrown into Xcode (the premiere IDE for the Apple platform). You will even learn how to write Mac OS X and iPhone applications! Not bad for a beginner course, right?
There are 30 lessons and 92 videos in this course. Total running time is over 12 hours to complete this course end to end.

What's New in Version 1.0.2
Added the ability to play audio through speakers in spite of the mute switch.
Doesn't make it...
When the description for the app starts out with, "if you want to learn computer programming, this is the place to start," you get the idea that this is a beginner tutorial. The Apple developer bashing banter is amusing, but then it tells you that you need to know C programming, C++ programming, objective oriented programming, and oh, by the way, an understanding of Unix would be helpful before starting these lessons. What the &$@€?!? Just come out and state that a degree in computer science is a prerequisite. I gave it two stars because I'm sure the tutorials are great for those who have a working knowledge of programming, but I felt the app description was very misleading.
Like hiring a tutor that shows up stoned
Take out the cursing, jokes, complaining, and pointless chatter and you could watch this all in about 20 minutes.
I could only make it through to the section on strings. Then I threw in the towel. I'm trying to learn something that I've never done before and I find challenging. Two guys laughing and trying to act like Trey and Matt don't make for a compelling learning experience.
The main guy isn't bad and if it was just him, this would probably be a decent app. But this is a mess. It's like he sat down to record this and his wasted buddy showed up and said, "Come on on puff ain't gonna hurt ya!"
These guys really can teach. Their tutorials are so helpful and their witty conversations keep you focused. The only way this could be better if they offered more languages, maybe even some scripting languages like Perl. Also, it would be really nice if you could download the presentation slides by themselves instead of just having the videos.
