Let's Talk About Text

When designing mobile user interfaces, a lot of developers and designers overlook the power of text. From formatting and presentation, to building editing experiences, text is an extremely important part of building good mobile applications. In this presentation, we will start by talking about fonts, typography, and dynamic type. We'll look at how to use standard and custom fonts and support iOS dynamic type settings to dynamically size your UIs based on the user's text size settings. We will then turn to attributed strings and text views and will look at how to present and interact with text in your UIs. We will end with a full-blown look at TextKit and how to build rich text editing experiences in your user interfaces including how to accomplish syntax highlighting, spell checking, and other features when building editing experiences. Please join us to learn about using text in your mobile applications. (This presentation is focused on iOS technologies.)
