IPhone Swift 3.0 Development Resources

I have attached as a much of the content that i have found while developing an IPhone game. Please feel free to leave comments and I will add further links the more that I progress developing a game.

Apple Api Documentation
https://developer.apple.com/reference/spritekit
 - I have referenced the SpriteKit api here, however all that is needed is on the Apple site. Sometimes it can be a little easier searching stackoverflow for answers before searching the api documentation.

Image Creation
Adobe Illustrator - useful for creating the sprites and scenes
Spriter
Prepo - Useful for generating all your app icons in all the various size requirements that apple require. This can be found in the App Store.

Courses
