iOS Build a Self-Destructing Message iPhone App Designing and Starting the App Adding Login and Sign Up Screens

Regarding the difficulty gab between blog reader and messaging app in the ios development.

This is a question to people who have gone through the ios development. I was wondering what your thoughts are regarding the jump in difficulty between the blog reader and the disappearing message app. I was doing well with the blog reader but feel lost with the disappearing message app. Any insight would be much appreciated.

The messaging course is one that I think you might want to work though twice, as there was a lot of information packed in it. (This is actually an issue I've noticed as the iOS courses get more advanced. It seems like once you understand the basics, the next level contains a lot more information and as a result the learning curve is steeper. With that said, I think that being able to self pace and re-watch courses makes getting through a lot easier.)

It's good to hear this feedback. I worked closely with Amit to make sure the skill level increase was appropriate and to ensure that I covered anything new in detail that wasn't covered in the previous projects. We are adding more beginner and intermediate material so that students should feel ready for this project when they get to it in the track. In the mean time, working through the project twice and asking for additional help in the Forum is great advice and will hopefully get you comfortable with everything we're doing.

Thanks for the feedback guys. Going back and just watching the videos one more time is a tremendous help.
