Apple’s iOS 7

People have been asking if all the new graphical changes to iOS 7 will impact Cocos2d apps. Actually, iOS 7 will have no impact to most Cocos2d apps because they are full-screen. All user interface elements that a Cocos2d app uses are typically custom built. The less common apps which use a combination of both Cocos2d and Apple’s UI Kit might need to be updated, depending on which UI elements are being used.

In any case, it’s a good time to review your app and make sure everything is iOS 7 compatible and that your graphics mesh with the new look.

    I just brought the iPhone Game Kit. I am a Full Sail University Game Art Major, the reason I brought this was so I could learn language and engineering in a way. I want to combine my knowledge of game art and what I learn here to make games. The type of games I like are games that have a good story line, and a in depth rich history. So like Zelda, Darksider, or it could be a shooter like Mass Effect or Gears of War. I really hope that this is a start of a brand new opening for me.
