Radar: Changing Metadata RectOfInterest causes pause

I found this issue when working on a barcode scanner included in an app I am working on for prod.ly. If you want to be efficient with barcode scanning and change the scanning region in the preview depending on device orientation you’ll notice this problem. Say, you want a wider active scanning area in landscape than you want in portrait.

When you change the rectOfInterest during rotation the preview video goes to black briefly and the main thread is blocked causing the rotation to start with a delay too.

Radar: UIImagePicker returns offset cropped image

This is the kind of bug you have to see for yourself to believe it. UIImagePickerController is one of the oldest classes in iOS and we’ve been using it for just as long to let the user pick images from their photo library. You can also allow “editing” which means the user can select a square region.

Unfortunatley – at least as of iOS 8.1 – the region you select does not match with the resulting cropped image that you are provided. It is shifted down by about 10 pixels from what the user selected.

Radar: Incorrect Horizontal Size Class

I found this bug while working on an app for our ProductLayer startup. There is a new segue “Present as Popover” which dynamically decides to present a view controller either modally full screen or as popover depending on the available screen width. On iPhone 6+ this shows as popover in landscape orientation and modally in portrait. On iPads it always shows as popover.

AV Foundation: Code 39 Recognition Confusion

This is a bug report for AV Foundation. I noticed this problem when creating nice vector versions of the 1D barcodes used in figures in my book. The problem with this is that if you are scanning Code39 barcodes you have no way to determine whether it was one with or without check digit.

Radar: Spotlight doesn’t find files if first criteria is file format

While working on my talks for Mobiconf next week, I was looking for a specific file. There I got stumped because Finder wouldn’t show me any files matching my search criteria. Oh well, another day another bug report. This one is nice because I could easily demonstrate it with a screencast.

Calendar: Fails to update events from mail update

The CEO of the startup I am part in insists on working on a PC and scheduling our weekly jour fixe with Microsoft Exchange. I knew something was amiss because whenever he changed the time of a meeting I wasn’t able to get my Calendar entry to move.

Being a good engineer I researched the root cause and filed a bug report as rdar://18438463 and on Open Radar.

Radar: Xcode fails to update inline help from documentation comments

When researching documentation comments for a talk I’ll be giving at a conference I got stumped by this issue with Xcode 6.0.1. When I created a fresh project the documentation popup would be instantly updated, but when changing documentation in my larger projects (e.g. DTFoundation or DTCoreText) the updated would never happen.
