Build: iOS 10 SDK Development, Chapter 4 (part 1)

We begin chapter 4 “iOS 10 SDK Development” by laying out our plan to build a working podcast client over the course of the rest of the book, as this will exercise many of the common needs of an app (retrieving and parsing network data, presenting it in a UI, responding to user input, etc.). In iOS apps, we typically start with the user interface, not the implementation, so our first task is to start building an app. We do that by building a storyboard.
