PDC iPhone App

The PDC iPhone app uses your HealthKit data to hatch and level Pokemon.
PDC stands for Pokemon Day Care.

In my final year of university, I learnt about iOS development. I can’t even remember the course name it was so long ago, but we were tasked with creating a shopping app within the model view controller design. Initially, I found it a bit daunting. I had never actually coded on a mac before, and while the xCode storyboard was intuitive, swift was something else. In terms of programming languages I’ve encountered, I’d daresay it is the most unique. Regardless, I managed to come out the other side with a passable iPhone app, so long as you didn’t fiddle with it too much.

Working in the mobile app space did get my brain thinking though: I saw a cool idea online about being able to use a pedometer to hatch Pokemon (in the Pokemon series eggs hatched based on your characters steps). Since iPhone’s have built-in pedometers, and I have just made an iPhone app, it made sense. And so, Pokemon Day Care was born!
