Appendix D. Introducing Xcode 4 > Getting Started with Xcode

Getting Started with Xcode

Whether you are creating a new Xcode project or reopening an old one, you see the Xcode workspace window shown in Figure D.3. Note that depending on your project and your Xcode preferences, the details of the window (not to mention the code) will very likely be different.

As noted previously, Apple developer tools often provide a test bed for new interface features (and, under the hood, performance advances such a advanced threading). In its first demonstration of Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion), Apple showed how full-screen apps could take over the screen in much the same way that all apps do on mobile iOS devices. As Apple has moved forward, Xcode has provided an example of how a full-screen app can work. It was compelling and relatively simple to demonstrate full-screen implementations of existing apps such as Preview, iCal, iPhoto, and Mail, which Apple did as long ago as fall of 2010.
