Since the official Parse shutdown, many people are looking for alternatives. Google established Firebase as one such option for your web-based backend. In this tutorial we will be exploring how to build an iOS app that uses Google Firebase as backend.
Our Featured Part
New version 2.0 now fully supports iOS 5 through iOS 8 on all iPhones and iPads.
Just like the passcode lock mechanism of the iPhone, you can allow your users to set a 4-digit PIN for your own app. Then when starting your app’s personal data will only be available to the user.
It mimics the animations of the original for entering and confirming the PIN.
Our Featured App
Big red LED digits allow you to see the timer even at great distance so you are free to move while you give the talk of your life. SpeakerClock emulates the famous countdown clock that all speakers at TED conferences need to adhere to.
The latest version is a universal app with HD-support for iPad, multiple presets and lots of usability enhancements. New portrait support allows you to put your iPhone/iPad in the cradle and still use SpeakerClock. Now the whole screen flashes if you transition into a new phase of your speech.
The Latest From the Cocoanetics Blog
Apps on Apple’s App Store are technically originating in the US. Therefore they are affected by US rules governing the export of encryption technology. For a long while, I remember, Apple asked developers during app submission if the app was using encryption.
Since the previous maintenance release was 4 months ago, I decided to make a new release with the contributions made since then. DTCoreText is not being actively developed further by me because by this time the HTML-parsing capabilities built into iOS 9 and 10 are sufficient for most peoples needs. But since I keep getting good pull requests (with unit tests a welcome extra) I keep releasing these every couple of months.
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.
