Filename and Line Number with NSLog: Part II

Filename and Line Number with NSLog: Part II | iPhone and iPad development | Scoop.it

The code allows for displaying additional information beyond the date/time stamp and process ID that NSLog outputs, specifically, the filename which calls the debug routine, and the line number where the call was invoked. I also added a few additional configuration options including an option to disable all debug messages.

Using XCode 4 Snippets

Using XCode 4 Snippets | iPhone and iPad development | Scoop.it

"Recently, I came across this post and fell in love with the idea of using XCode 4 snippets. Up until I read the post, I had heard they existed, but never really tried them. After reading the post, I began using his snippets as well as started creating my own. Now, I would say that my work-flow is faster than ever."

Enabling Remote Debugging via Private APIs in Mobile Safari - Nathan de Vries

Enabling Remote Debugging via Private APIs in Mobile Safari - Nathan de Vries | iPhone and iPad development | Scoop.it

Enabling the web inspector in an embedded UIWebView is handy, but what about content running in Mobile Safari?

To do that, we need to call the +[WebView _enableRemoteInspector] API from within the Mobile Safari app. The easiest way to do that is by launching Mobile Safari in the iPhone Simulator, and then use gdb to attach to it and call the private API.

TWTweetComposeViewController makes it really simple to integrate Twitter posting into you applications

TWTweetComposeViewController makes it really simple to integrate Twitter posting into you applications | iPhone and iPad development | Scoop.it

The iOS 5 TWTweetComposeViewController makes it really simple to integrate Twitter posting into you applications. However we still need to support iOS 4 in many of our applications. Having something that looks and acts like the built in Tweet Sheet allows us to have a consistent user interface across iOS versions.

Add an iCloud photo gallery to your app with MTICloudPhotoGallery library

Add an iCloud photo gallery to your app with MTICloudPhotoGallery library | iPhone and iPad development | Scoop.it

There are 3 different tiers in the library and you can choose which one to use depending on how much customization you need. If you use the top tier only you can add opening and saving images from iCloud with just about 10 lines of Objective-C code (which is always cool). Then you can decided to use the lower level classes also and you can further customize everything from the look to the code itself.

Tutorial: Storyboard app with Core Data | MaybeLost.com | iPhone and iPad development | Scoop.it

The application we will be making will be fairly simple. We will start with an empty project and design our core data layout (including some default data) which will be used in the main application and a login page. On successful login we will then display a table with a bunch of entries and associated thumbnails. We will include the ability to add and delete entries, and to use the camera to take the photo for each entry (or choose from an album). Here’s a shot of the screen flow for the application when finished….

MKNetworkKit: a networking framework

MKNetworkKit: a networking framework | iPhone and iPad development | Scoop.it

MKNetworkKit is a networking framework written in Objective-C that is seamless, block based, ARC ready and easy to use.
MKNetworkKit is inspired by the other two popular networking frameworks, ASIHTTPRequest and AFNetworking. Marrying the feature set from both, MKNetworkKit throws in a bunch of new features. In addition to this, MKNetworkKit mandates you to write slightly more code than the other frameworks at the expense of code clarity. With MKNetworkKit, it’s hard to write ugly networking code.

A small utility for populating your iOS simulator (or device) with images from Google.

A small utility for populating your iOS simulator (or device) with images from Google. | iPhone and iPad development | Scoop.it

"As I was working on the ELCImagePickerController, bringing it up to speed for iOS 5, I needed to get some images inside my iOS simulator. I did some googling and came up with the handy method of dragging and dropping images onto the simulator and using Safari to save them to a photo album. This is all well and good for four or five photos, but it starts to really slow down after that. Also, if you ever run into a situation where you need to reset the simulator you’re stuck with doing it all over again. For the love of all that is automation, and of course any excuse to start new project in iOS 5, I knew it was time for a utility to handle this task for me."

samvermette/SVStatusHUD - GitHub | iPhone and iPad development | Scoop.it

SVStatusHUD mimics the HUD shown on orientation lock, mute and volume change on iOS. It should only be used in response to hardware or other important notifications (for instance when an accessory is detected by your app). If you’re just looking to show the progress or success of an operation, you should have a look at SVProgressHUD.
