A Sneak Peek At TweetMapper

March 18th, 2021 Posted by: - posted under:Articles » Featured » Uncategorized - 3 Comments

Devotees will remember that last year the team over here at iCodeBlog released a little iPad app called TweetMapper that showed a live stream of tweets coming down from 10 major cities. Well since then Twitter deprecated its support for XML and increased its support for better searching. As a result about a month ago we dusted the project off and went at completely rebuilding it. We added Core Data in, support for the now current streaming JSON output from …

      Update: ELCImagePickerController

      March 3rd, 2021 Posted by: - posted under:Articles » Featured - 12 Comments

      I recently spent some time with ELCImagePickerController. For those of you who’ve worked with UIImagePickerController, you might have noticed one of its major drawbacks: you can only select one photo at a time. ELCImagePickerController solves this issue by cloning the UI of UIImagePickerController, but with the added bonus of allowing you to select multiple assets. Collin Ruffenach (@cruffenach), who authored the the first version of the picker, has done an awesome job of making …

          Interested in iOS programming? Join us on Reddit!

          November 1st, 2020 Posted by: - posted under:Articles - 5 Comments

          Over here at iCodeBlog we love Reddit. I enjoy /r/programming but often developers aren’t interested in the iOS stuff that we are. As a result today I created /r/iOSProgramming, go over there and submit articles, GitHub projects you are interested in, questions, code samples or just thoughts on development. This should be a good place to ask us questions or get other iOS developers feelings about things you are creating or finding.

                Tweet Mapper in the App Store

                April 20th, 2020 Posted by: - posted under:Articles - 6 Comments

                I recently decided to look into the Stream API that is provided by Twitter. Though this API, you can specify a request with certain parameters and be stream tweets as they are posted live. I decided to make my first iPad app using it called Tweet Mapper. Tweet Mapper is meant to be a window into the live world of Twitter. It doesn’t require a Twitter account to use and is free in the store. The app looks at 10 major cities; Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, New York, Miami, Barcelona, London, Tokyo, Rome and Mexico City.

                  April 8th, 2020 Posted by: - posted under:Articles - 7 Comments

                  Hey iCodeBlog readers. If you were on the internet this morning you most likely saw mention of the iPhone 4.0 preview. We did a predictions post yesterday and actually faired pretty well with our guesses.

                  MultiTasking (No 3G) – CHECK
                  iAd – CHECK
                  iBooks – CHECK
                  Folders – CHECK
                  Application Switching Update – CHECK

                  Lots of good news here, except for the lack of multitasking on the 3G. 3G owners shouldn’t expect to be getting any more of the features coming into major updates of the …
