How to start

iOS Programming - 6 hours 6 min ago

Hey guys In my we had a guy who developed our iOS App, but about a month ago he quit and now nobody knows how to work with XCode or how to use Objective C (the App is programmed in Objective C) My boss told me I should take care of the app and fix all the bugs and stuff, but I never worked with XCode or Objective C. I searched for some tutorials and made some little examples, to learn how Xcode works, but all I found was very beginner stuff.

The App is an very big Master Detail App, which Connects to our Database to get Data (obviously).

Now my question is, where should I start to decrypt these lines of Code and where to look for some advanced tutorials.

How can you detect if the user has already subscribed to a product when implementing IAP with StoreKit

iOS Programming - 7 hours 47 min ago

I’m asking for some guidance. I have implemented IAP in an app we are building at work. I would like to ask how I can know if user has already subscribed. I did some research and states that I would need to do a receipt validation by setting up a server of my own. I don’t have any backend experience. Is there an easier way one would recommend.

Searching for iOS 12 cookbook

iOS Programming - Thu, 01/17/2019 - 23:58

A couple of years ago I had bookmarked a website, which was basically a collection of snippets for things like reading contacts from the address book, creating calendar events, taking a picture and so forth. It was a huge help because it saved me hours of googling how to achieve specific things. I’m wondering if there is something similar for iOS 12?
