File System Programming Guide: File System Basics
Introduction With large amounts of RAM on modern computers and alternatives such as the cache directories and application support directories, genuine temporary files are not needed in most Cocoa applications. Even when they are needed, for atomic write operations or for Core Data databases, Cocoa libraries often create them automatically. Eventually though, you're likely to encounter a situation where you need to create a temporary file yourself. You need to be careful when creating temporary files because: Temporary files and folders in Cocoa
I’ve mentioned a number of open source iOS apps, and here’s an interesting open source app called Doppio from Christian Roman. Doppio utilizes the open source AFNetworking for communications, and Mantle for easily converting received data to Objective-C objects. Doppio allows you to find the nearest Starbucks using the Starbucks API providing a neat map display in app, and allowing the user to open directions in their choice of map apps (between Apple Maps Google Maps, and Waze).
In this post I’ll demonstrate how to create a category of the UIColor class to add a method for creating a UIColor object from a hex value. That’s a mouthful – if you need to create a UIColor object from a hex string, read on… Assume you have the value @”0A5CEA” (an NSString object that holds a hex value) and need a UIColor object that represents the value of the string.
