Looping with Actions (Sample App BUILD Video)

There have been many posts about this topic, I thought I would throw one out there showing the creation of a sample app… from start to finish.


This way you can follow along if you want, and hopefully end up at the same place I did at the end of the video. (^_^)

Here is a link to the app produced in this video (if you want to skip to the end)
