iOS 7 Development: Everything You Need To Know To Get Started

first_imgOK, so you have downloaded the iOS 7 beta and are ready to get to work. Now what?There are some new things you are going to want to check out in iOS that directly inform how you develop your next app for the release of the next iPhone later this year. Mostly, Apple has hundreds of new SDKs to check out that govern many different functions of the device. These are going to take some time to learn as they cover the new multi-tasking features, games and various design features. Related Posts Tags:#app development#Apple#iOS 7 The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology Before you get started with iOS 7 though, you’ll want to load the latest version of Xcode, the integrated developer environment for iOS development. With iOS 7 comes Xcode 5, which is currently in developer preview. You will not be able to use Xcode 5 unless your Mac is upgraded to the most recent version of Mas OS X – Mountain Lion 10.8.3. When learning how to develop for iOS 7, those are the two primary features that you are going to need to study – the new development frameworks and the new features in Xcode 5. New Frameworks In iOS 7There are six new frameworks specific to iOS 7:Sprite Kit – Perhaps the most interesting new framework in iOS 7, the Sprite Kit allows for hardware accelerated animation systems for 2D or “2.5D” games. Provides graphics rendering and animation, sound playback support and physics simulation.“SpriteKit will be capable of powering 2D games ranging from Cut the Rope to Jetpack Joyride and more. We think that this framework could become a major contender in a space currently dominated by Cocos2D and Unity,” said Kenneth Ballenegger an architect at Chartboost.Game Controller – Allows developers to add hardware controllers to iOS, either by directly connecting the device or through Bluetooth. Controllers must be optional and there must be a way for players to use the game without a controller. Maps – Developers will now be able to integrate Apple Maps into their apps, take advantage of 3D map features and control the user’s perspective. Other new features include a way to call on Apple for directions that overlay on top of the map. Games – In addition to the Game Controller and Sprite Kit, improvements have been made to Game Center (including a complete design overhaul, like the rest of iOS 7). New features let players interact with each other via chat, simultaneous turns and trading. Leaderboards have been expanded to 100 from 25. Developers can also add new features to help prevent cheating in the game.Those are the basics for getting started developing with the new features in iOS 7. Experienced app developers will likely be able to learn most of these new features relatively quickly, while newer developers might have a tough time wading through all the enhancements and the massive library that constitutes iOS developer libraries. Advancing Xcode 5None of the frameworks matter one bit if you don’t know what you are doing in Xcode. Xcode 5 has been designed for iOS 7 and Mac OS x 10.9 Mavericks. Among other changes, Xcode is now a little cleaner than previous versions and features a refined navigator. UI Improvements – The toolbar is smaller, which gives developers more space to work with. Xcode 5 is not a complete departure from Xcode 4.5 but you will have to figure out where all the usual stuff is. Testing – Developers hate the testing phase. It is where all their pretty code goes to die. Xcode 5 has a new test navigator to overview all the tests in a project and easily add new test targets.Debugger – New gauges have been added to the debugger UI in Xcode 5 to show CPU activity, real-time memory, energy use and more. Version Editor – Xcode 5 has a new management of workflow. It removes the repositories organizer and moves those functions to the project window under the source control menu. There are more new features and tweaks to Xcode. Some developers love to develop in Xcode while others cannot stand it. If you have picked up a Developer Preview for Xcode 5, tell us how in compares to older versions in the comments. center_img Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … Multipeer Connectivity – The peer-to-peer connectivity is essentially the new sharing features in iOS 7. Discovers nearby devices and directs communication without an Internet connection.JavaScriptCore – Allows for wrapping of standard JavaScript objects into Objective-C (the code used for iOS apps). Should allow for porting of apps between different mobile operating system platforms. Media Accessibility – Allows for closed-caption support in your apps. Safari Services – Support for adding URLs to Safari reading list. Enhanced FrameworksIn addition to the brand new frameworks, significant additions have been made to the existing frameworks, such as the User Interface Kit (UIKit), Games, Maps, Multitasking and more. Here are the highlights:User Interface – For developers and designers, the biggest feature of iOS 7 that is going to take some getting used to are all the new UIKit Framework functions and references. Apple has added “dynamic” UI actions, such as proximity and gravity controls as well as a whole new kit for text. The dynamic elements will take some time to study but the text kit should allow for easier development of words into apps with less actual code required in the app.Multitasking – The new multitasking features in iOS 7 apply mostly to the background data push and flow of information to the app. The apps can be woken up or launched periodically to fetch data.

In Rajasthan, dairy farmers live in fear

first_imgYet another instance of cow vigilantism, involving the alleged lynching of a Muslim dairy farmer, Rakbar Khan, 31, in Alwar district of Rajasthan on the night of July 20 led to nationwide outrage and prompted both the Central and State governments to take urgent measures to control the situation.What happened?Rakbar and his friend Aslam were herding two cows on foot through a forest area in Ramgarh’s Lalawandi village, when a group of villagers stopped and attacked them around midnight on the suspicion that they were smuggling the cows to their native village in Haryana. While Mr. Aslam managed to escape, Rakbar sustained severe injuries and died on the way to hospital.The incident comes just over a year after another dairy farmer, Pehlu Khan, was lynched by a mob near Behror in Alwar district on April 1, 2017. Pehlu Khan and four others were transporting cows in vehicles to Nuh district in Haryana when they were stopped and assaulted. In another incident, a mob killed Umar Khan near Govindgarh in November 2017.What did the govt. do?After the quick arrest of three accused, Home Minister Gulab Chand Kataria visited the spot of the alleged lynching, met Rakbar’s family and promised a fair probe and an initial ex gratia of ₹1.25 lakh. Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar and the Waqf Board also announced assistance of ₹5 lakh and ₹3 lakh respectively to the victim’s family.Mr. Kataria admitted that Rakbar had died in police custody and there was a delay in taking him to hospital, as the policemen first made arrangements for taking the cows recovered from him to a ‘gaushala.’ For this “error of judgment,” an assistant sub-inspector was suspended and three policemen were sent to the Police Lines.Four inquiries were instituted in the case in four days, and the investigation was shifted from Alwar to Jaipur. The government’s swift response seems to have been guided by political compulsion and pressure from the Opposition, as the Assembly election is due later this year in Rajasthan.How is Rakbar’s village coping?There is a palpable fear and unease in Rakbar’s native village, Kolgaon, situated in the Ferozepur Jhirka region of Haryana. Rakbar’s family, comprising his wife and seven children, faces a bleak future with no permanent source of livelihood. The Meo community inhabiting the region, which has been rearing cows for dairy occupation for several generations, feels that it is being targeted. A huge panchayat held at Kolgaon on July 29 by the Rakbar Insaaf Committee, comprising about 40 prominent people from five villages, sought a Supreme Court judge-monitored investigation into the alleged lynching, ex-gratia of ₹50 lakh for the family of the victim and the arrest of BJP MLA from Ramgarh Gyan Dev Ahuja on charges of criminal conspiracy in the case. Activists and family members also believe that a “deliberate attempt” is being made to shift the blame on to the police and let the lynch mob escape.The accused arrested so far are reportedly affiliated to the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP).What lies ahead?With civil rights groups demanding that both the Rajasthan and Haryana governments chalk out a plan for protection of dairy farmers in the Mewat region, the ruling BJP in these States has a task cut out to deal with both alleged cow smugglers and mobs. The extortion rackets being run in the garb of cow vigilantism are now under the police radar. Besides making attempts at communal harmony, the police are finalising the chargesheet to be filed in Rakbar’s case. The police in Alwar district are also in the process of identifying miscreants after examining their criminal record. Jaipur range Inspector-General of Police V.K. Singh says this will be followed by preventive measures, including arrests, to stop the recurrence of violence.last_img read more

Two killed, 42 injured in tanker-bus collision in Raigad

first_imgTwo died and 42 persons were injured after a Pen-bound Maharashtra State Road Transport Corporation bus collided with a gas tanker on Sunday morning in Raigad district. The accident occurred around 8.45 a.m. at Gagode Phata on Pen-Khopoli road. Officials said the driver of the tanker, which was carrying liquid ammonia, lost control of the vehicle and it collided with the bus. Raghunath Balaram Mhatre (67), a resident of Bori, died on the spot while Dinesh Khedekar (26), a resident of Nanegaon, succumbed on the way to hospital. While the bus was on its way to Pen from Khopoli, the tanker was going towards Pune from Pen. “The injured were taken to Pen hospital and from there, a few were shifted to Alibag Civil Hospital. Some were discharged and one was shifted to JJ Hospital due to the seriousness of injuries,” senior police inspector Indrajit Katkar from Pen police station said.Traffic on Pen-Khopoli road was affected for close to five hours after the accident. “We called for two fire tenders and experts from the Rashtriya Chemicals and Fertilizers, who checked the tanker. After making sure that it was safe, we called for cranes to move the tanker from the road,” Mr. Katkar said. The vehicles that were behind the bus and tanker were stuck in congestion. “We allowed four-wheelers and two-wheelers to go ahead, but the heavy vehicles had to wait till the road was cleared. Meanwhile, our officers also diverted other vehicles via Pali and Mumbai bypass road,” Mr. Katkar said.The injured included 18 men and 24 women from Badlapur, Ulhasnagar, Khadkebadi, Gagode, Pen and Neral. The youngest among them were a six-year-old boy and a three-year-old boy, who are out of danger. Around 15 of the injured are still admitted to hospitals while the rest were discharged by evening after treatment. The Pen police have registered a case against the tanker driver, who fled the spot after the accident.last_img read more
