Yeah, don't go with the new Empty application template. Just select Single-View Application, then delete the generated storyboard and view controller files. If you want to manage without a storyboard altogether, you need to remove it from the General Settings where it says Main Interface. To set which view controller is your root view controller (where the app starts out), follow the points listed here: https://teamtreehouse.com/forum/removing-storyboard-from-xcode-61.

There is a major difference between an Empty Application and an Empty Project. An Empty Project has no targets. This article is very helpful if you want to restore Empty Application: https://coderwall.com/p/wucjeq/add-empty-application-template-back

For Xcode 6.3.2:

1) Download the Empty Application template from

https://www.dropbox.com/s/jd560t6u5sab4ae/Empty%20Application.xctemplate.zip?dl=0

(Link taken from the coderwall.com reference posted by @colinli.)

2) Navigate to the correct file location in Xcode: Finder > Applications > Right-Click on Xcode > Show Package Contents > Contents > Developer > Library > Xcode > Templates > Base > Other

3) Drag and drop the downloaded template into this location.

First you should install Xcode from Mac Appstore, then open up Xcode.

None that I'm aware of; I guess Apple renamed it to Empty in newer version of Xcode.

do you know the basics of iOS development and its programming language? If not, I'd suggest you take Treehouse's iOS track.
