Apple WatchKit – simple to implement

Posted on Mar 14, 2015 in iOS, Programming

I tried out Apple WatchKit to bring Sorting Thoughts on an Apple Watch and I’m really impressed how simple it is. It takes me only a couple of hours to show the most important task thoughts of a Sorting Thoughts collection in a glance and special app view:

Sorting Thoughts on an Apple  Watch

The layout of an app is very simple and focused on the important information. For the glance view Apple advises a couple of default layouts and I think it is a good idea to use one of this layouts because there are well thought and fit for the watch concept. What is interesting is to see that the upper glance layout group always have a right margin –  see also the Xcode 6.2 screenshots below. I think it is not understated to see over 10k apps if the Apple Watch will be sold in April 2015.

Sorting Thoughts for iOS completed

Posted on Dec 11, 2014 in iOS, Programming

Woohoo! Sorting Thoughts for iOS is now available in the App Store :-)

It feels great to have this milestone behind me. And I look forward to many feedback and to the next release of the desktop version. With Sorting Thoughts for Mac and PC 2.0 the sync cycle will be closed and Sorting Thoughts will be a great tool on desktop and iOS devices with a secure and private sync service.

Static Code Analysis with Xcode

Posted on Jun 14, 2014 in iOS, Programming, Tools

Xcode comes with a static code analysis tool which can help to find the following issues:

  • Logic flaws, such as accessing uninitialized variables and dereferencing null pointers
  • Memory management flaws, such as leaking allocated memory
  • Dead store (unused variable) flaws
  • API-usage flaws that result from not following the policies required by the frameworks and libraries the project is using

see also Apple iOS Developer Guide

A nice feature is the presentation of the problem in separated steps, so it is really easy to reconstruct the detected problem.
