Part 2: Robinhood

  1. Introduction: In this video you’ll learn about the next app we’re dissecting, Robinhood, and the three key UI component that you’ll learn to build.
  2. Newsfeed Control: First up is the newsfeed, and in this video we discuss that control and card-like UIs in general, then figure out how to build it.
  3. Card-Swipe Collection View Layout (Swipe-to-Remove): In this video you’ll learn how to create a custom UICollectionLayout that looks just like the Robinhood newsfeed.
  4. Animating a Card Stack: This video will teach you how to set up gestures and animations in a scalable way.
  5. Challenge: Number Indicator: In this challenge your task is to interactively animate the bottom cell that appears when the user swipes on the top one.
  6. Plotting Data: This video is all about data. We’ll learn when it makes sense to add a graph and how to plot one with UIBezierPaths.
  7. Interactive Graph: This video will teach you how to create an interactive graph that lets the user move through its data with their finger.
  8. Constraining the Timestamp: In this video you will be challenged to figure out a cool Auto Layout issue.
  9. The Ticker: In this video we’ll discuss the ticker control and see how to implement it.
  10. Showing the Data: This video will teach you how to hook up the interactive graph with the ticker and create a seamlessy scrolling price.
