059 windows azure mobile services poster@2x
This week we take a look at Windows Azure Mobile Services, a back-end for mobile applications that has first class iOS support. In this episode we begin building a full featured chat application. This is part 1 of 2, in which we set up a new mobile service, wire up the SDK with CocoaPods, set up Twitter authentication and enrich the data using Javascript on the server. This episode has been sponsored by Microsoft.

058 container view controllers
In this episode I create a container view controller using the UIViewController containment APIs. The container view controller mimicks a style where the starting view controller fades into the background instead of sliding to the left.
#57
057 facebook integration poster@2x
In this episode we build on our Social App from episode 56 and add Facebook support. We cover setting up an Facebook application and the requisite permissions required to authenticate & fetch a user's friend list, all using the Social Framework in iOS 6.
#56
056 twitter integration poster@2x
In this episode we implement the Social framework in order to integrate with Twitter. Using the provided framework, we issue an authenticated API call to get a list of Twitter followers for a given account, as well as compose a tweet with the new SLComposeViewController.
#55
055 versioning poster@2x
In this app I cover iOS application versioning. I cover what the purpose of CFBundleVersion and CFBundleShortVersionString are, how to set them, and how to use agvtool to automatically increment build numbers for any distributed build.
#54
054 pony debugger poster@2x
In this episode we take a look at Pony Debugger, a fantastic little tool by the fine folks at Square, to inspect HTTP traffic and dive into our Core Data model all via a Chrome inspector pane in the browser.
#53
053 restkit object manager poster@2x
This episode covers some additional pieces of RestKit, abstracting network requests even further by providing a route & mapping for a given object and utilizing RKObjectManager to perform the work for us. Instead of using a live API, we verify the behavior using SenTestingKit.
#52
052 restkit core data poster@2x
In this episode we continue on our exploration of RestKit, this time with a focus on CoreData. It turns out to be fairly easy to change our existing code to support saving the responses into NSManagedObject classes in a database.
#51
051 intro to restkit mapping poster@2x
RestKit is a framework that aims to simplify the "plumbing" of your application to allow you to focus on your core features. In this screencast, I focus on fetching JSON from an API and mapping it onto our own objects using RestKit's mapping features.
#50
050 custom cells poster@2x
In this episode we design a custom table view cell including a designing custom repeatable background & highlight images in Photoshop, dynamically layout out the labels, as well as observing a tricky problem regarding cell animations. We also take a look at how to profile the graphics performance (FPS) using Instruments.
#49
049 slide out menus poster@2x
In this episode I cover a few of the available 3rd party libraries for implementing a slide to reveal menu, similar to what you see in the Facebook application.
#48
048 code snippets poster@2x
In this episode we examine Xcode's code snippets feature and how it can speed up your day to day development. We also take a look at a handy gem for easily installing code snippets you've found online.
#47
047 gesture recognizers
Detecting touches used to be a chore. Thanks to the UIGestureRecognizer family of classes, detecting touches & gestures is a breeze. In this episode we implement a Photo Table where you can add photos, move them around, as well as pinch & rotate.
#46
046 fun with uicollection poster@2x
In this episode we dive into UICollectionView for displaying ... collections of views. We start by looking at how to tweak the builtin UICollectionViewFlowLayout as well as extending to create an interesting custom variation.
#45
045 validating iap receipts poster@2x
Here we continue on with our In App Purchase example, but this time we take the receipt given to us by StoreKit and we send it to our custom rails server to be validated with Apple.
#44
044 in app purchases poster@2x
In this episode I dive into the world of IAP (In App Purchases) using StoreKit. I start by creating a product in iTunes Connect, retrieving that product on the device, and emulating the App Store buy confirmation buttons using a handy CocoaPod.
#43
043 avaudioplayer poster@2x
The iOS SDK has numerous ways to play back audio. In this episode we take a look at how to play a local mp3 file using AVAudioPlayer. We add play/pause support, volume, and show the song progress in a UISlider. We finish it off by monitoring the audio levels using a custom view.
#42
042 retrying http requests
We pick up where we left off in Episode 41 and implement a mechanism to automatically detect expired authentication tokens, re-login the user automatically, and retry the original request. This takes a bit of refactoring and use of blocks, but allows for transparent HTTP retries.
#41
041 authentication with afnetworking poster@2x
Many APIs require some sort of authentication. In this episode, we explore the use of an API that authenticates with a username and password, and returns an authenticated token that has an expiration date. You'll see use of AFNetworking to deal with the request, attaching the authenticated token as an HTTP Header to outgoing requests, as well as the use of SSKeychain to abstract away the lower level Keychain API.
#40
040 shine effect poster@2x
Creating an animated shine effect, similar to what you see on the slide to unlock screen on the iPhone. In this episode, I show how to achieve this effect with CALayers, layer masks, and a CABasicAnimation.
#39
039 smart json parsing poster@2x
Parsing JSON responses into Objective-C Objects can be tedious. In this episode, we start development on a smart JSON parsing class that can alleviate some of the mundane work usually required for this functionality.
#38
038 class introspection poster@2x
In this episode I create an application to introspect classes to list out methods and instance variables using Objective-C's runtime features. Bonus: Can you spot the memory leak?
#37
037 xcode tips tricks poster@2x
In this episode I cover some of the Xcode tips & tricks that help me be effective. I cover many keyboard shortcuts for keeping my hands on the keyboard, as well as a couple of useful plugins for Xcode for Vim key bindings and picking colors.
#36
036 searching in uitableview poster@2x
Using UISearchDisplayController you can quickly add searching behavior to a UITableView. In this this episode we start off with a CoreData model of products, displayed in custom UITableViewCells and add search to filter the products in the table.
