Example: Using The Multipeer Connectivity API Added In iOS 7

Two of the more interesting APIs added in iOS 7 were the iBeacons API, and the Multipeer connectivity API. I’ve mentioned a tutorial on the basics of using iBeacons, and an example app.

Here’s an example from Mohammad Azam demonstrating usage of the Multipeer Connectivity API called EasyCards. The example shows how to set up and discover sessions, and transfer a resource (in this case a card) to those connected.

Here’s from the AzamSharp channel showing EasyCards in action:

You can find the EasyCards source code on Github here.

A nice straightforward example on using the new Multipeer Connectivity API.
