So let’s do a challenge. Can I transform an app like in the image below in 15 minutes?

Watch the video to see how it was done.

You are a programmer, not a designer, right? But still you want that clean and professional look for your app.
Yep, that’s what I do here at App Design Vault.. We give you the design resources to make your app look good without having to do all the grunt work yourself.

UPDATE: The Punchfork API has been taken down so I have replaced the API connections with the Yummly API. The code is different in that it connects to the Yummly API and it doesn’t have Facebook/Twitter share counts but the design process is the same.
You can download the final XCode project that was used in the video here

Please use XCode 4.5+ to run the project.

    Can we use these templates with non-ARC projects? In particular Socioville, if so how? Thanks!

      Hi, Yes you can. You can start out with a non-ARC project and then insert the necessary retain/release statements at the correct places.

      But it would be a pain though, are you sure you don’t want to convert to ARC?

    WOW! I can’t believe how easy that is! I’m new to app development and am not a designer. My app is boring and I was going to talk with a designer, but an acquaintance referred me to your site. Now I need to find a template which will fit my needs. Thanks so much for sharing!

    I see in an above reply that we can use the templates for business apps. I want to confirm that this is still true. Are there any additional fees once acquiring one of your templates?
