The iPod touch Weblog - Apple News, Tricks, and Themes
Update 2: August 17, 2011 The TechExxpert guide has been updated to fully allow Xcode 4.1 to work. Sorry that the past fixes did not work. Thanks for the comments! Please let me know if this guide works/doesn't work. Update: This guide has been modified to the latest updates as of August 2, 2011 including the latest Xcode 4.1 and OS X Lion 10.7. Apple has been adamantly refusing to create an iPhone SDK support for Windows-based machines. The following steps involve installing a virtual machine on your PC, updating the virtual machine to 10.7 , then running the machine and downloading and installing the iOS SDK and Xcode on to the virtual machine. There are other ways to install OS X on your machine but they involve creating a new partition and installing the Operating System directly to your hard drive. The process will take 2-3 hours, but most of the time is consumed by large downloads. 1. 2. 3. 4. 6. 7. Now you can start coding an app for your personal use.

Getting Started with iOS Development Building games for devices like the iPhone and iPad requires a different approach than you would use for desktop PC games. Unlike the PC market, your target hardware is standardized and not as fast or powerful as a computer with a dedicated video card. Because of this, you will have to approach the development of your games for these platforms a little differently. Also, the features available in Unity for iOS differ slightly from those for desktop PCs. Setting Up Your Apple Developer Account Before you can run Unity iOS games on the actual device, you will need to have your Apple Developer account approved and set up.

How to Virtualize OS X Lion on Windows Update: Fixed down hard drive files (February 8, 2012). Sorry about the delay guys, this page has been updated so that Xcode 4.1 does not crash anymore. (August 17, 2011). If you've tried to virtualize previous versions of OS X, you know that it is a very tedious and time consuming process. This new guide works by giving you a simple VMWare Image.

How To Develop A Simple iPhone App & Submit It To iTunes Like cooking, there is a bit of a process involved in “cooking” up an app. This article isn’t about your style of cooking, per se (i.e programming), but just the general steps necessary to get it from your head and into iTunes. Creating an app isn’t entirely free, so it is important to know up front that, at some point in this process, you will be shelling out $99 (USD).

Dario Pardo's cave » Shared Talend Open Studio Job Repository with Subversion Talend Open Studio is an open source Data Integration/ETL tool that allows creating complex jobs through an easy-to-use graphical interface based on the Eclipse platform. It allows for rapid development through its hundreds of prebuilt components to source and target systems. However, as great as Talend is, there is one caveat; the FREE version does not come with version control and a shared job repository integrated into the product.

Sliding Panels Sample When Adobe first introduced Spry, our goal was to bring Ajax capabilities to the web design community, allowing designers to create web pages that provided a richer experience for the end user. As we know, however, the web evolves at a blistering pace. Over the last couple of years, frameworks such as JQuery have evolved to encompass many of the capabilities originally envisaged for Spry, making Spry as a standalone offering less relevant. As we can continue to focus our efforts in furthering the web, we have decided to no longer invest in the development of Spry. We do however recognize that for some designers it continues to provide value. As such, we are making the Spry framework, along with supporting documentation and example code, available on GitHub under an MIT license so that designers will continue to have access to the framework and can customize/extend it as required.

Start Developing iOS Apps (Swift): Connect the UI to Code Connect the UI to Source Code Elements in a storyboard are linked to source code. It’s important to understand the relationship that a storyboard has to the code you write. In a storyboard, a scene represents one screen of content and typically one view controller. View controllers implement your app’s behavior. App Store-safe Page Curl animations Update February 22, 2013: Please do not use the code I present in this article anymore. The iOS SDK has progressed tremendously since I wrote this post in 2010, and now provides a native implementation of the page curl gesture/animation in the form of UIPageViewController. This API is a lot more flexible and easier to use than the Leaves project discussed here. Even if its usefulness is questionable, the page curl has become one of the signature effects of Apple’s iOS devices so it is no surprise that many developers would like to implement this effect in their apps. iBooks on the iPad doing a page curl

How to Create a Safari Content Blocker Extension in Swift - iOS-Blog In this tutorial I am going to show you how you can create a Safari Content Blocker Extension using Swift. Safari Content Blocker So, What exactly is a Safari Content Blocker? Well, It is an extension that you can create rules which will be applied to Safari on the loaded device. I think Apple sums it up rather nicely: Safari content-blocking rules can hide elements, block loads, and strips cookies from requests. (ARC) Automatic Reference Counting Tutorial And Guide Page Automatic reference counting (ARC) was introduced in the iOS 5 sdk to free Objective-C programmers from having to handle memory management by making memory management the job of the compiler. If you developer with Objective-C prior to the iOS 5 SDK or talked to Obj-C programmers then you are probably aware of how tedious task memory management could become. When using ARC there is no need for retain and release calls, and not only that in many cases ARC can provide a significant performance increase.
