A couple of weeks ago I mentioned a library allowing you to quickly create app walkthroughs using an easy to configure template called Onboard.
Here’s an open source library from Yari D’areglia that takes a different approach to creating app walkthroughs which rather than using a template gives you freedom to design views how you like called BWWalkthrough.
One of the multitasking features introduced with iOS 7 was background fetches, and I mentioned a few tutorials on utilizing the iOS 7 multitasking features including background fetches here.
Here’s an open source library from the LinkedIn engineering team providing a very easy way to scheduling background fetches called Selene.
Selene automatically determines which background fetches to execute based on the priority, average response time, and elapsed time since last execution, with a 30 second timeout for tasks. This way only the most important tasks are executed preserving performance, bandwidth, and battery.
Here’s an open source library for video recording that provides a number of nice features called SCRecorder from rFlex Simon Corsin.
Some of the features of SCRecorder include:
- The ability to record video in multiple segments so you can easily create Vine type videos if desired
- Easy removal of undesired video segments
- Video filters using Core Image
- Merging and exporting videos
Here’s a new app review management library submitted Matt Coneybeare, based on UAAppReviewManager, enhanced with new features, and built completely in Swift called Armchair.
Some of the features of Armchair include:
- Very easy setup (only 2 lines of code required)
- Keeps track of rating prompts on multiple devices (so users of the same app on a different device don’t get annoyed with too much prompting)
- Configurable at runtime
- Localization for dozens of languages
Previously I mentioned RNTHemeManager a library allowing you to theme your interface with variables stored within a plist file, and Chameleon, a color helper library that can automatically choose the nearest flat color for your interface.
Here’s an open source library that allows you to very quickly apply a them to your UIKit interface components by simply supplying your chosen colors, and font.
As the readme states:
