Weekly Roundup

Hello, and welcome to our weekly roundup! We have a great collection of new Cocoa-related stuff for you this week, including two complete applications and a number of other controls whose aesthetics should be easily adaptable to iOS 7.

Speaking of iOS 7, but obviously not in any specific terms, since it’s still under NDA, how are you planning on supporting it? Are you going to maintain compatibility with iOS 6, or are you going to go all-in on the new pla...

Welcome to our weekly roundup! In case you haven’t been to the site in a couple days, you may have missed our recent redesign. As with all such things, it’s inevitable that there are some bugs lurking here or there, plus there are liable to be sharp edges in places we haven’t anticipated. Please don’t hesitate to let us know if you have any feedback, or run into any issues with the new design. We’d also love to hear from you if you just want to say "looks goo...

Controls of the Week: Five of them...

To be honest, this has been an amazing week for controls on the site. I went through the controls we published several times, and couldn’t cut the list of controls to consider of CotW down below five. Seriously, a great crop. So, oh well, this week we have five controls of the week.

Weekly Roundup

Another WWDC has come and gone, and Cocoa developers everywhere have a lot to digest. iOS 7 is going to introduce a lot of changes, both to the way our apps look and feel, and also how they’ll work under the hood. Some technologies I’ve been shying away from for the past year are now very clearly marked as "the future" and woe unto those who do not immediately embrace them.

Personally, I’m really excited about iOS 7. I think the icon...

Sponsored by HelpShift

We’re delighted to have HelpShift back as our sponsor this week. Check out their new CocoaPod for even faster integration into your iOS apps:

pod 'Helpshift', '~> 2.4.0'

This week’s Weekly Roundup is brought to you by HelpShift, the integrated Help Desk for native apps. I’ve tried out HelpShift and I must say I couldn’t be happier. It is, by far, the best support system I’ve used for my apps, and the easiest to integrate.

WWDC is nigh! In just one week, Tim Cook and, ostensibly, Eddy Cue, Craig Federighi, Jony Ive, Bob Mansfield, and Phil Schiller, plus some 3rd parties, will be on-stage to unveil iOS 7, OS X 10.9, and maybe even some new Mac hardware. Except for Ive, presumably, who will be talking to us via video link from an undisclosed location.

Cheers,
Aaron

Weekly Roundup

A couple days ago, I posed a question on Twitter asking how many of you use CocoaPods (it actually got 17 replies. I’m not sure why Twitter is being weird about showing them). The consensus appears to be one of ‘yes’ or ‘soon’, with a handful of people who prefer Git submodules.

Currently, we allow you to tell us about apps of yours that use controls on the site, but there’s n...

Hi folks, welcome to our weekly roundup! We’re getting close to WWDC time, and rumors are flying about hardware refreshes, delays to Apple’s unannounced iRadio service (how can an unannounced product be delayed as far as the public is concerned? I know, I know…), and—of course—the de-Forstallification of iOS 7.

Meanwhile, Microsoft is set to unveil the new Xbox (Fusion?) this coming Tuesday. Although it won’t ship until late Fall, I̵...
