User Interface (UI)
This is where you will place all your user interface files. We recommend you split it into Screens and Components, each of which will have a folder for each screen or component of your app.
This is where you will hold all your Coordinators that coordinate the content, language or other functionality of your app. We recommend that you make each of these a singleton with their own folders.
This holds the Viewcontroller which will house all your screens and which coordinates changing between screens.
