Weekly Roundup: Is Apple About to Become the Dominant Game Console Maker?

The iPhone event has come and gone, and now we have a number of fascinating new developments to endlessly conjecture about. What I'm still most curious about, for example, is why Apple decided to make the new A7 chip 64-bit. It's not like the iPhone 5S (s?) has more than 4GB RAM, right? We will eventually have mobile phones that need to address more than 4GB, but why take that plunge now before it's necessary?

Unless, of course, it is necessary in the next 12 months. Like, f...

Weekly Roundup

Happy iPhone week! It's expected that Apple will be announcing the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C on the 10th, along with either the iOS 7 GM or a date for its release. I'm excited to see the hardware Apple will be releasing, but I'm even more excited to see what you all have been working on for iOS 7. I'm sure it's going to be awesome.

Best,
Aaron

Weekly Roundup

Hello, and welcome to another weekly roundup! On Saturday, I published the site's 1,500th component. It's been about two-and-a-half years since the site went live and I published the very first component on January 4, 2011, and I never once imagined that Cocoa Controls would become as big as it has. I remember that, about six months after I started the site, I confided in a friend that I was concerned I would soon run out of content to publish, but obviously this never happened. Instead, the C...

App(s) of the Week: That* from Ink

I've noticed a trend of late where more developers are building and open-sourcing not just controls but entire apps. I think this is fantastic, and was delighted to see Ink build and open-source a collection of apps this past week.

ThatInbox "is simple, elegant, and free new way to do your email on an iPad." - This app shows off how to use the MailCore library to build a full-fledged mail client.

Weekly Roundup

Hello, and welcome to our weekly roundup! Undoubtedly, the biggest news this past week is that, after 13 years as CEO, Steve Ballmer will be stepping down for the top spot at Microsoft in the next 12 months. Although revenue at Microsoft has quadrupled under Steve, the stock price has declined 40% from January 2000 - August 2013. To be fair, though, that includes external events like the dot-com bubble bursting. If, instead, you look at the period from January 2002 - August 2013, the stock has...

Weekly Roundup

Welcome to our weekly roundup! We have a ton of great controls and links for your reading pleasure today, but I want to highlight one link that I thought was particularly interesting. Last week, I read about a new Kickstarter project for GNUStep, a project that's been around since 1998, which offers LGPL-licensed reimplementations of Apple's core OS X frameworks, up to the 10.5 APIs. Gregory Casamento, one of the key p...

Weekly Roundup

I've been spending a lot of time lately watching WWDC 2013 session videos and working with new frameworks and APIs in iOS 7, like [redacted], and I'm realizing just how big a deal iOS 7 really will be in terms of the capabilities of the platform and the depth and breadth of apps you'll be seeing appear over the next couple years.

And I'm not even talking about Apple's seemingly inevitable destruction of the classic video game console space, either! That's another fascinating arena: I...

Weekly Roundup

Welcome to our weekly roundup! When Apple introduced Auto Layout in iOS 6, I put it through its paces and quickly decided it was too much of a pain to struggle with, especially given that it would prevent me from shipping the apps in question on iOS 5. (harder to use, can’t produce layouts that look good, won’t work on older operating systems…Umm, pass.) But, circumstances change, and I would very strongly recommend to anyone building iOS apps today to adopt ...

Weekly Roundup

Hi all, and welcome to our weekly roundup! As I write this, the Apple Dev Center is in the midst of its single longest outage ever. Hopefully, by the time you read this, it will be back up and running. Meanwhile, the inexorable move towards a flatter, more gestural future continues unabated with the release of components like UI7Kit. Not that this will necessarily help either BlackBerry or Microsoft, both of whom saw their stocks tank after reporting poor sales numbers on their flagship device...
