- Stunning screen transitions: How about presenting the next screen in your app while the previous one disappears in a ball of fire?
One of my chapters in the “iOS5 by Tutorials” book introduces you building Particle Systems with UIKit in iOS5 and this chapter was a part of the iOS Feast at Ray Wenderlich’s web site. So if you have missed this great tutorial, follow the link below and enjoy a quick and simple walk through to building a “Draw with fire” application for iOS and UIKit particle systems.
