Family Tree in Your Pocket - How to Build an IPhone App Using Geni API
If you are an iOS developer (or interested in becoming one) and you would like to build mobile applications for genealogy, this presentation is for you!
During this presentation we will use XCode to build an iPhone app that will download, layout and display an interactive family tree, similar to the one used by the Flash application on Geni.com
We will use Geni’s OAuth library to authorize a user, load a family tree from Geni, learn how to position tree nodes by using Geni’s Cartesian coordinates, draw lines between the nodes, and much more.
