AppA Source

Posted by:

Here’s a new service from the AppA folk who you may remember us being mildly baffled by a while back — AppA Source!

Source is an online directory of code, software, meetups, conferences and other items of interest to iOS developers.

It is intended to be a ‘one stop shop’ for developers to find the tools and information they need to create amazing apps for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.

Source is still undergoing rapid development, and is currently considered ...

appledoc

Posted by:

This looks like a pretty easy way to generate Apple-styled documentation from Markdown type comments in your code, if you have a need for doing that kind of thing:

appledoc – Objective C API documentation generator

appledoc is command line tool that helps Objective-C developers generate Apple-like source code documentation from specially formatted source code comments. It’s designed to take as readable source code comments as possible for the input and use comments as well as surrounding source code to generate ...

Well, looks like these people have been around for a while, but we just happened now to stumble across them; if you’re an indie developer, you might wish to check out

Cross Platform Developments

Posted by:

So it’s been a while since our last game engine roundup and HTML5 development roundup, and aside from that rather interesting looking Moai SDK we haven’t mentioned anything else in the cross platform area lately it seems, so let’s sift through what bookmarks we’ve accumulated for that kind of thing.

The one that’s got the most frenzied yammering going on about it is this ‘Project Spartan’ HTML5 framework thingy that Facebook is supposedly going to take ...

Echoprint

Posted by:

Hey, here’s some way serious niftiness for you: You know that fingerpinting playing music thing that’s all cool these days? How would you like to put that into your app? For FREE? Well, guess what, there’s a new service Echoprint which is for exactly that:

Music resolvers such as Shazam, Soundhound, Gracenote and Audible Magic work by “listening” to the music and then searching for features in the audio in a large database of content. They find a match ...

Sample Code: HelloMapKitWorld

Posted by:

Here’s another good project to mine for useful tidbits, courtesy of the good folk over at ManiacDev:

HelloMapKitWorld

This source code is a sample of how to use MapKit. Nothing fancy, just some demo / sample code.

This is a simple application that downloads some locations from a remote JSON file, parses them, inserts them into a Core Data database and then displays them on the map…

Uses ASIHTTPRequest and JSONKit and MBProgressHUD which are all widely agreed to ...

SocialCompare – PAAS

Posted by:

This is an interesting concept: SocialCompare.com is an, eponymously enough, social site for creating comparisons.

Find original user-generated comparisons tables. Compare anything such as products, services, objects, software, websites, people… Your choices and decisions will be better and easier…

Could be, could be. The particular comparison that caught our attention was this one:

Platform as a service (PAAS) for cloud applications (Scalable cluster of services)

We’ve mentioned a couple in passing of that type of thing before, but this is ...

AQAppStateMachine

Posted by:

So you have some complicated state management in your app? Some really complicated state management? Well, this might be just the thing for you:

AQAppStateMachine

AQAppStateMachine is designed to assist the development of applications with some fairly intricate state requirements. The idea is that the state itself is stored as an n-bit bitfield, and that the application can define certain ranges of this bitfield to refer to state flags. These flags can be combinatory or mutually exclusive, or hell, they could ...

AppCode IDE

Posted by:

So we noticed this tweet:

Experimenting with http://bit.ly/epgjkC AppCode – powerful alternative to XCode4

“Alternative to” Xcode 4? That sounds like rather a solution in search of a problem, doesn’t it? Well, let’s see:

Why try AppCode?

Because of a truly smart code editor, with

  1. Thought-out and convenient code navigation
  2. On the fly code analysis with quick-fix suggestions
  3. Project-wide usages search for classes, methods, variables, resources
  4. Instant code transformation intention actions, including i18n support
  5. Better code refactorings: ‘Change Signature’, ‘Extract Method’, etc.

Hmmm. Well, those are good ...

Sample Code: FuelView

Posted by:

Looks like a bunch of interesting snippets in this newly open sourced project:

An RSS-feed and location-based iOS application

…While the application in this post is only directly useful to people living in Western Australia, I think this is a really interesting project as it contains a lot of very useful snippets of code (some of which I’ve written posts on before) including:

An iOS version of my Gloss Gradient drawing code…

Two persistent stores with one NSPersistentStoreCoordinator…

A full set of “single line ...
