Hand to a beginner on iOS simulator?


I am following the Ribbit material as a beginner developer.

How do I add the actual outline of the iPhone to the simulator so I can use some useful controls such as "Save Picture to Library" to properly interact with the course?

with the new version of Xcode I dont think you can show the whole iPhone like you could previously (but im not 100% on that). To use the home button/simulate shakes etc you can use the options in the hardware submenu of the simulator program (near file edit etc). What do you mean by "use the save picture to library controls to properly interact with the course". To save a picture to the simulator camera roll you must open safari and drag and drop a picture from finder/anywhere on your computer into the safari window, then press the little share button in safari and choose save to camera roll or whatever the option is.

Hi Stone,


I promise I didn't have any French wine yesterday but for some reason I thought you had to access the share feature by interacting outside of the screen...

Thank you, I was able to save a picture to the camera roll and move forward.
