This is my 20th post filed under get noticed tag, which means that I have reached the contest’s finish line :) Hip hip hooray! So I’ve made a short movie on this occasion, showing what my app can do at the moment. I have to warn you, you won’t ..
A hamburger menu or a pancake menu is a button usually placed in a top corner of a mobile app. The name comes from button’s icon which takes form of three horizontal lines ☰ resembling the layers of a hamburger or a pile of pancakes. I love ..
One of my magic hours app feature will be the ability to search for a location and save it for the future use. I need a control that will display my stored locations and I decided that I’ll place it at the bottom of the app’s main screen ..
There was a slight change in concept of how I want my magic hours app main screen to look, comparing to what I’ve presented in my previous post. I’ve decided that timeline control would be, maybe, more suitable. So I had to finally deal ..
I came with my app development to a stage where I’m about to inform user about various things happening behind the scenes. This means that I have to present messages like: estimating current location, fetching weather forecast, etc. somewhere ..
Yesterday I got really excited :) I’m talking about a feeling when you’re dealing with something which is still new for you, but at the same time you begin to understand how things are organised and what should be done to achieve the goal. ..
Every software developer has a set of programming habits that he or she has built over time. I’m talking about naming convention, code formatting rules, favourite language structures, design patterns, etc. Show me the code and I’ll tell you who of my work ..
I spent last two evenings working on my app’s main screen. Again, Xcode was driving me crazy with random bugs that efficiently slowed me down ;) I needed to add an action by ctrl dragging element from storyboard to ViewController class. As I already ..
Today I focused on designing my application’s main screen. It’s going to be different than in my windows phone project. My previous app’s landing screen was in a form of a dashboard with tiles: Since I’m now able to calculate ..
After two days of struggle I came up with my application screen showing this :) There’s sunrise time in the first label and sunset time in the second. At least now I can see the pros of having emoji here :). Calculating these two is crucial for my Magic ..
The weather outside is just too good to stay at home and code and yesterday was April Fool’s Day. So I decided that today’s post is going to be lightweight and not so serious. I’m going to make fun of Apple. A little bit ;) There’s ..
It’s hard to get used to the new IDE, new shortcuts, new programming language and the new OS at the same time. I feel like a kid who got lost in the woods. And it’s getting dark! Stay calm, don’t panic and try to find your way out… ..
Two weeks ago I changed my wordpress theme. I created a child theme and made some quick adjustments, but still, there were some things that bothered me and that I needed to tune up. Today I am like 90% happy with the results. This is a difficulty with ..
In my last entry I did complain a little about some of Swift wonders I have recently discovered, so today I’m going to look at the bright side of Swift, just to keep the balance ;) I’m going to focus on two data structures: tuples and enumerations. ..
I finally managed to upgrade my mac to Sierra and was able to install the new version of Xcode. Hip, hip, hooray! I can go on now with the next chapters of my favourite App Development with Swift :) It’s worth to mention that the book is sometimes ..
Things got a little complicated today. I bet you know the feeling when simple tasks escalate in time consuming issues, just like that, out of the blue. You try to find the solution, you find the solution, you follow the steps necessary to resolve the issue, ..
I played with my theme, got lost in the game… and installed a brand new one ;) So yesterday I spent long hours tuning my new wordpress theme up :) Today I’m going to show you how to make small changes so that the theme’s layout ..
Swift is a relatively new programming language (introduced in 2014) developed by Apple for iOS and macOS. It was designed as an alternative for Objective-C: simpler syntax, no pointers and dot-notation style, which makes it a more friendly language to learn ..
As I have already mentioned in my previous post, I’m rather an unexperienced mac user. I own MacBook Air 11, which was necessary to build my iOS project while I was working with xamarin forms. What I like about my mac is its compact size and solid ..
Two weeks ago I wrote a post confirming my willingness to take part in Get noticed contest. At that moment I wasn’t still sure what my project is going to be about. I only knew I wanted to focus on the mobile development. The contest has just begun ..
So I have decided to take part in Get Noticed contest. The thing is for programmers and the rules are quite simple: one has to develop an open source project (in any technique) and blog about its progress :) It’s been a long time since I have ..
W moim życiu dokonała się w tym tygodniu ogromna zmiana. Po ponad 5 latach pożegnałam się z marką Lumia i przesiadłam na budżetowy model iPhone’a 5c. Ale od początku… Moim pierwszym smartfonem był jakiś chiński badziew na androidzie, ..
Parę dni temu rzucił mi się w oczy artykuł na niebezpieczniku, o tym czy rzeczywiście powinniśmy się bać nowego hitu na smartfony. Mowa o aplikacji Prisma, dostępnej na ajfony (od niedawna również na androida), która potrafi przekształcić ..
Właśnie oglądam transmisję z konferencji Xamarin Evolve16. Dobra zmiana? Xamarin. Co to jest? Deliver native iOS, Android, and Windows apps using existing skills, teams, and code. Z technologią zetknęłam się ponad rok temu. Dla mnie oznaczało ..
