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 ..

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 ..

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 ..
