Our Featured Part
BarCodeKit is a library which allows for generating common 1D bar codes on iOS. You can display them on the device, add them to PDF documents or print them to stickers via Air Print.
You get a FREE license for BarCodeKit with purchase of my book Barcodes with iOS!
Our Featured App
Urban Airship Commander is used by Developers who use Urban Airship’s push notification service. It is a convenient mobile tool to keep track of your push-enabled apps and broadcast notifications to your users.
You can spice up your push notifications by using the emojis that are available on the iPhone emoji keyboard. You can tap on any previous log message and reuse the text and custom settings to save yourself much time. We found this to be a boon during development time when you need to keep resending the same message over and over again to test your apps.
The Latest From the Cocoanetics Blog
The latest Xcode update no longer builds for the armv7s architecture by default. Is it planned obsolesce or an oversight?
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.
It’s filed as rdar://18566595 and on Open Radar.
Update Oct 17th: Added Apple’s response “behaves as intended” with a very good explanation given.
Who is Cocoanetics?
The word Cocoanetics comes from the words Cocoa (the framework we use to program iOS apps) and Genetics (to build, make up). It simply states that we have living and breathing iOS development a level even deeper than “in your blood”.
Our apps and parts are often experiments, mostly pieces of art, but always carefully handcrafted. We’re still learning and getting better at coding every day. You benefit from this because our code gets better all the time and we share what we learn on our blog.
