    Indeed. Might try it some day. I've got CC subscription but seldom use it since Photoshop is sorta complex for UI design as a "photo editor".

    I wonder whether Sketch 3 can do this. Though I never needed to do it.

    :-P

    I don't know about your background on this so I'll just post some experience and materials I know.

    Designing

    Design+Code is good and enough for beginning. But it does not contain everything systematically. I suggest you read the iOS Human Interface Guidelines after Design+Code.

    The HIG is necessary. Trust me. There are brilliant designers I know sometimes making low-level mistakes in design (especially the interaction part) because they don't fully understand the standards, conventions and core philosophies of iOS without reading it. And after reading it, you can see every app on your iPhone with X-ray and start to understand why it is designed like that or why it looks good but just feels not right.

    Coding

    Stanford CS193P for a start, which is also available on iTunes U. Then you can start your app, with these good stuff for reference (books and blogs):

    For beginners I don't think it's a wise choice to start Swift right away since Apple's still making changes to it. But you can start with The Swift Programming Language if you like.
