Help on starting basic app for Valentine's Day

Hi there! I am new to iOS and I would like to make a simple app for my wife for Valentine's day. It doesn't have  to be super fancy or have all kinds of crazy bells and whistles, just enough to get me to a basic version of it and perhaps then, if I have time I can try some additional features.

The thing I'd like to make is a simple app where push a button that is an image of a conversation heart - the candies you give your loved one on Valentine’s day.

When the one heart with a Valentine’s day line is pressed, a new heart with a conversation line appears on the screen.

As I said, it's super basic but if  I can get that far, that would still be a great start.

Any code you can help me with (starter code) and any other tips would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Sadly I think the answer to this question is you cannot just do what you want.

Are you a developer and pay your 99 $ per year. If not you cannot put it on your wife's phone. So are you up for paying 99$ per year?

This is one of the reasons people advocate jail breaking the iphone.

Actually I got the dev fee covered last summer and I started my project last night. I'll post an update on where I'm stuck tonight

Ok great.  So your questions is then really general.

Just start a new project in Xcode with a story board or single view.

Then I am sorry but I don't understand exactly what you want.  

Do you have many hearts on the screen and she has to choose one by touching it.  If she touches the right one then a message pops up somehow?  is this what you want?

Currently I had a button and a label on the nib screen. When I added a uiimage over the top, the button and label got disconnected from the project. Any idea how to remedy that?

I had them connected and running and all that. As soon as I tried to apply a background, I seem to have disconnected the button and label. Perhaps because they were momentarily dragged offscreen?

Just use UIButtons and give them an image.   Then all the touching is built in.

If the button is going to change its properties then you need to "connect" it up.

Also you need to "connect" up an IBAction for when the button is touched.

I would not worry about UIImageView.

I didn't know a UIButton could be customized with an image. Will look into this. Thanks
