Transcript

Hi, within this lecture, we're going to see how to create sticker packs. And by far, this is going to be our easiest lecture ever because we're not even going to write any code, we're just going to see how to create sticker packs so we can actually send them to messages or other chatting applications in our iPhone. And this feature is specifically designed for designers but it's actually beneficial for us to learn about this because it's so easy and convenient. Just choose 'Sticker Pack View' from here when you create a new app rather than a single view app, and I'm going to name this PokemonStickerApp, okay? So, we're going to download some Pokemon stickers and we're just going to work with them. So, after you create this project, as you can see this is very simple. So, there is nothing in it really. All we have, the stickers, our SAS folders, so this is basically, we drag and drop the stickers that we have created and we work with them. So, if you're a designer, you can just create your own stickers and you can actually sell those on the App store, like iMessage extension or a sticker pack, okay? So, people use iMessage in their daily lives. So they're looking for different kinds of stickers and stuff every time. And make sure, I'm going to go for Pokemon stickers set and I'm going to work with those. So, I'm just doing this as a random example. Make sure that you don't steal some copyrighted image from the internet. You have to find one without royalty issues or you have to create your own sticker packs if you want to put those on App Store or if you want to put those for sale, okay? So, let's find some Pokemon stickers here. As you can see from the Google, I just choose a random website and I'm downloading some Charizard icon here. So, let's go for another one. So, what is this one called? Blastoise. Okay, let's go for Blastoise. So, let me download this a little bit and let me just do one more. So as you can see, we have different sizes here available. But I'm doing this just for an example. So, I'm going to go for another one and I'm going to go for biggest one of this. So, is this some kind of Pidgeotto? So, let me... no. It's called Hariyama, I believe. So anyway, let me open this in a folder and I'm going to go for Charizard, okay? And so this one is Blastoise, I believe, and this is the Hariyama. So, after that, I will choose all of this. I'm going bring in this sticker packs and as you can see now, we are ready to use those stickers and that's cool. And here we go. This extension is chosen one more time to run on my simulator. So, when I open this on my simulator, you will see that we can use this on the messages app. So, this works perfectly with the messages, okay? So, if you open one of the messages from here, you can click on this message. And here we see our own secret pack. Like I can come over here, choose Charizard, and send it as a message to Kate. So this is cool, right? This is all we have to do, is to just to create a sticker pack. And as you can see this is relatively easy, you can create icons and you can work with those sticker packs if you're a designer, and remember people really dig this stuff. If you come over here, you will see some other options as well. And as you can see, they have all icons. Of course, we don't have anyone yet because we haven't put any icons in our app, but we can see the Pokemon sticker name actually here and we can just choose and we can add some more. So, there is this whole list here so we can scroll down if we want but right now we only have three, so we can only see three. So, this is one of the cool features of iOS as well. And it's good to take a break from coding for a while, but that's it for right now. So, we're going to stop here and we're going to continue with face recognition in the next lecture.
