iPhone App Templates

| Blog | June 2, 2012

We’ve tried to develop a list here of some open source iphone apps developers can use to learn from or expand further.

Developing apps can be hard to learn if you don’t have some good examples tolearnfrom.Herewe’ve provided links to some of the apps we like best with links to complete source code. These apps are all fully functional and we’ve made sure to include apps that have actually been accepted into the app store.

Get started by looking for apps that may look similar to something you are working on. The goal should be not to have to reinvent the wheel.

Important: Always make sure you understand the licenses as many of these open source iPhone apps are GPL and require that you open source your app if you use any parts of their code.
