Does anyone have advice on onboarding?

iOS Programming - Sat, 07/21/2018 - 21:38

I've made a social app and I'd like to make sure that any users that sign up are properly walked through the app. Anything that confuses a user can potentially convince them not to use it.

Are there any good cocoa pods or even semi standard practices on onboarding users?

Fortnite Based App

iOS Programming - Sat, 07/21/2018 - 20:34

I’m fairly new to programming, and I’m interested in creating an app that’s based around Fortnite.

I’m wondering if it will cost money for me to make that (and possibly make money off of it). I’ve seen other apps do it with popular games like Pokèmon Go, where people will make Poke Radar apps and place ads on it.

Thanks in advance!

See how you spend your time, eliminate distracting activities, and revolutionize the way you bill clients.

And with the brand new sync feature, you’ll even see how much you’ve been working from home — it adds up more quickly than you think.

Updating UITextView with New Members of Array from External Class

iOS Programming - Sat, 07/21/2018 - 18:40

Hi, I’ve been lurking for awhile and I think I finally have a question that the FAQs don’t touch on.

I have a view controller with its own class and a UITextView widget. This is a loading screen. Data gets crunched and added to an array within a separate “Business” class, and I want this UITextView to update with the contents of each new member.

Because of the UI outlet scope, I obviously cannot update the TextView directly from my business class.

My solution has been to start a loop in the ViewDidAppear() function of my loading screen , which calls the business class function and then prints the contents of a global variable to my textview. Problem is, my loop is locking up the whole program and it either doesn’t try to print to the textview until after the loop has completed or isn’t calling the business class function at all, with no error messages. The program prints the initialized value of the global variable n times instead.

My question is, if you wanted a loop to run when you entered a view controller that calls a function in another class, waits for completion, and then updates a local textview, what kind of control structure would you use?

Right now I’m using a funky timer from stackoverflow as the loop, but I want the textview to update in real time not just with the contents of my globals every 1 second interval. The timer has got to go.

For reference I haven’t touched my app delegate. I was \trying to keep this simple.

Thanks in advance

App idea - is this possible?

iOS Programming - Sat, 07/21/2018 - 13:12

Create an app that only shows photos from camera roll that haven’t been added to an album yet. Then assign those photos to an album.

I would pay $10 for this app. With thousands of photos in camera roll it’s near impossible to know which ones have already been added to an album.

It’s also annoying to have to move them onto Mac to organize and then move back into phone.

Is it even possible to build something like this?

I just released a train / bus departure times app build on the NextBus API.

iOS Programming - Sat, 07/21/2018 - 11:47

Im constantly missing trains on my way to work, and all the other apps out there were about finding routes, and showing you a map etc. It seems to convoluted. I just wanted a simple interface to see the stops I am interested in.

Came up with this.

It supports themes via Gestalt library, uses Alamofire for networking, ObjectMapper to map the responses to Classes.

Disk for storing to disk, Eureka for the settings view, and I threw firebase in for app monitoring and events.

It supports 2 routes for free. The pro version comes with unlimited routes and themes.

Adding push notifications currently using a Vapor backend. Once that backend is done Im going to add in a scheduler that allows you to pick when you want to be alerted of a train.

Considering asking for location so that I can tell you when to leave the house to, and maybe throw all of that into Siri Shortcuts as well.

[NO JB] Scripts I made for OpenTerm

iOS Programming - Sat, 07/21/2018 - 09:50

So, in the App Store there is this free terminal app called OpenTerm, which is also open-source (no jailbreak needed) which works perfectly and can let you create scripts. The programming language is cub, made by the same developer that created the app. It’s similar to JavaScript, but not the same. Here are some scripts I made for the Terminal, I also recently made an 8 ball program (trust me, it was tough to make). You’re welcome to create scripts and send them to me so I can add them to my website [make a paste on, then contact me here on Reddit or on my email (fun fact: is my free FTP service, there’s a video on my YouTube channel) saying that you made a script for OpenTerm, the name of the script and what it does.) Thanks for your time!

I just released a new arcade game, my goal was to make pixelart look as good as possible. Features a working day/night and weather system!

iOS Programming - Sat, 07/21/2018 - 07:43

I just released a new platformer for iOS called "Infinite Islands" any feedback is greatly appreciated. This is my first attempt at working with lots of hand made pixel art scenes, let me know what you think and where they can be improved. This game is free to play and does not have any "freemium" microtransactions; there is an ingame store for new app icons / themes (only app icons for this version, more themes are in the works!). The items in the store are able to be unlocked with gems you collect by playing the game, not by spending money.

If you have any questions on how I built this or need any tips/guiders let me know! I love to help people out, I find the best way to improve myself is by helping others. Swift has helped me go from making mediocre java based games to full fledged applications that I am actually proud to put my name on. I am excited to keep working on new projects :)

Upcoming features include full iPad support (not the terrible shrunken version the game currently has), more themes, more levels and various weather types (snow, ice, hurricanes, etc.)

Fair’s unfair: Apple the monopolist

MacCentral - Sat, 07/21/2018 - 07:00

Apple has rightly received a slap on the hands from European regulators and… wait, it was Google? That can’t be right.

Writing for Bloomberg, Leonid Bershidsky says “Apple Deserves an EU Fine, Too.”

Sure. Why not? Heck why not give it two? Seems like two oughta do it. Three is not out of consideration. Four seems like a little much, but The Macalope would be willing to entertain serious arguments. Five is right out.

(What are we talking about?)

Google isn’t the only tech giant with anticompetitive practices.
