With the prior update to DTFoundation having been 5 months ago, there were two main areas where some tweaks were necessary: support for tvOS and fixing a build error on Xcode 8.
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
I found this LLVM compiler crash when updating a project for building with Xcode 8. At first I thought it had to do with #if DEBUG because the crash didn’t occur when I removed the conditional compiling block. But further experimentation showed that it is a specific line in this block that is causing the issue.
It is filed as rdar://28318984 and on Open Radar.
I could have sworn, that I uploaded build 1.0.6 (28) of a client’s app to his iTunes Connect before leaving the keyboard for the night. The next morning it still showed build 15. Turns out TestFlight makes some builds disappear, here’s what I learned, why.
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.
