If you're looking at this post through your phone browser, in order for the page to be displayed for you, there is a lot that has to go on behind the scenes. Today, we wrote the code to build our own web browser. No HTML, no CSS, just Objective-C. We had to check things like, did the user type "http://" and if they didn't, we had to write code that would add that to the url for them. We also had to make the URL field disappear when the user scrolls up. That took a WHILE to figure out. There are a few things that I still need to work on to make the browser function the way I'd like it to, like allowing the user to bookmark pages, but as of now it's fully operational.
I'm looking forward to seeing what's possible just by the end of this week. We have a weekend challenge ahead that will take up most of our time, so I'm curious to see what it is.
