SwiftUI is a powerful framework that makes it easy to create beautiful user interfaces for iOS apps. In this tutorial, we’ll walk you through the steps to create a simple but stylish user interface using SwiftUI.

Step 1: Set Up the Project

First, create a new Xcode project by going to File > New > Project and selecting “Single View App” as the template. Name your project “SwiftUITutorial” and choose SwiftUI as the user interface.

Step 2: Design the Layout

In this tutorial, we’ll create a user interface that displays a list of movies. Each movie will be represented by a poster image, a title, and a rating. To start, open the ContentView.swift file and delete the default content.

Then, add a NavigationView with a List inside it. The List will display each movie as a row. Here's the code:

struct ContentView: View {
var body: some View {
NavigationView {
List {
Text("Movie 1")
Text("Movie 2")
Text("Movie 3")
