iPhone XR simulator is slow

iOS Programming - Fri, 12/21/2018 - 16:19

I'm running Xcode 10.1 and noticed that the iPhone XR (and only the XR) simulator runs slow. By slow I mean table view scrolling is sluggish and jittery, even in iOS settings. None of the other simulators have this issue. I've even tried resetting the XR simulator. I have not tried reinstalling Xcode 10.1. Anyone else seen this?

XCode “The specified item could not be found in the keychain”

iOS Programming - Fri, 12/21/2018 - 14:49

I’m trying to sign an app to run on a physical device, but I’m getting that error. I have a signing certificate in my keychain and XCode has access to it. I’ve tried restarting, creating a new project, and deleting the certificate.

Mandatory screenshot sizes

iOS Programming - Fri, 12/21/2018 - 14:44

Just about to submit my game to the App Store and I'm struggling with screenshots and which ones are mandatory. Apple's own guidelines suggest that all iPhone X screenshots are optional, and 5.5" screenshots are only required if 4.7" versions are not present.

My game uses particle efforts that simply don't render correctly on the simulator. I would have no issue taking screenshots on an 8 Plus simulator if I could get them looking right, but the only physical devices I have are a 6, an XR and iPad mini 2. I've taken 4.7" screenshots on the 6 and these look good

My question is, if I submit 4.7" screenshots and no 5.5", will I be rejected?

Should I take a remote, unpaid, part-time Internship?

iOS Programming - Fri, 12/21/2018 - 12:31

Hi guys!

I've built a couple of apps and managed to get a prior paid internship as a Software Engineer with a pretty respectable company that lasted 2 months. I've since finished the internship and have been job hunting for the last 4 months.

I came across a position on AngelList and it looks like a good opportunity to keep practicing mobile development with an actual project/team. However, it's remote, part-time, and unpaid. Seeing as I have 3 years of informal experience (personal projects) and 2 months of formal experience should I take it just so I can put more "experience" on my resume?

Quick side note: The startup is about 1-10 people and it looks like all the positions posted are for interns. (not sure if this is normal)

Unauthorized App Transfer

iOS Programming - Fri, 12/21/2018 - 11:13

Hello I have an app that's been in the store for a year and somehow it was transferred to another company that I didn't authorize. I submitted a report to Apple with the contact us but wanted to see if there was a number or escalation that I could use to get it brought back.

Coordinators with DeepLinks. Anyone have any good resources?

iOS Programming - Fri, 12/21/2018 - 10:35

I'm curious if anyone knows any good / comprehensive resources for coordinators with deeplinks? I've been looking at things from Khan Lou and also the medium article on Backlane engineering but something is always lacking.

For me I get stuck on how to get deep links to sort of "unwind" before I move on to the next state. For examples if I have 3 tabs, and I'm pushed into tab 1, which presents something, I'd need to dismiss, pop to root, then switch tabs to handle some deep links (perhaps).

Another concern I have is that in BackLane ( which is great, but it doesn't address a specific problem I have or have run into, which is deeplinks that need to be "remembered".

For example, if I need to deep link to a detail view. I may need to wait for a list view to load first, once it's finished loading automatically push to the stack the detail view. Add any unwind mechanisms / etc and things get convoluted fast.

Routers seem great as a solution, but I find myself using "setViewControllers" a lot with custom navigation transitions.

Any guidance would be appreciated!
