Weekly Roundup

Aaron Brethorst | August 27, 2012

Welcome to another weekly roundup! We still have over 20 controls in our queue, so we’ve been continuing to publish at twice the normal rate. That means that this week you get 16 controls (I may have overshot the mark just a wee bit, but I’m sure no one minds). Also, for all you Safari users out there, your logged in sessions on Cocoa Controls are now persisted past the browser window closing. I don’t know about you, but I was getting tired of logging back in every time I ope...


Controls of the Week: Cheddar and GHSidebarNav

Aaron Brethorst | August 27, 2012

One of our “controls” of the week isn’t actually a control, but a full app. Sam Soffes’ well-regarded Cheddar todo list app was recently open-sourced. It’s a great example of a good-sized, well-written, attractive iOS app and undoubtedly has something to teach just about everyone interested in iOS development. BSD licensed.

Comment Policy

Aaron Brethorst | August 13, 2012

Hi all – Just a short post to mention our new comment policy. You can find a link to it on every control page (look for the little link that says “Read our Comments Policy”).

It’s pretty simple and, I think, quite fair. All it says is please don’t be a jerk, and don’t post anything illegal. Now, I’ve never seen anything illegal posted here, and I can’t imagine what...

Aaron Brethorst | August 01, 2012

I recorded a video that demonstrates the very basics of creating and using a UITableViewController in iPhone applications. You can also check out the associated source code over on GitHub.

Let me know in the comments if this is useful, if you’d like to see more videos like this, and what you’d like to see in the future! (if anything, that is)
