I enjoyed this tutorial, but it could really use an update for XCode 11. Some of the UI has changed in ways that could really trip beginners up. For example, the Object Library is no longer in the lower right, but is accessed by clicking the new [+] icon in the menu bar. Cocoa app is now just “App”. It shouldn’t take that much effort, just some new screenshots and some text edits, but I imagine a refresh would add a lot of value for beginner readers.

I’m glad you enjoyed it and I would love to get all the old Mac tutorials updated and out of the archives, but sadly, there is just not enough demand for them.

This tutorial is more than six months old so questions are no longer supported at the moment for it. Thank you!
