With the release of iOS 9 SDK I mentioned a collection of source code examples and a couple of days ago mentioned a tutorial on using ReplayKit.

One of the new frameworks added with iOS 9 is the Core Spotlight framework which allows you to make your app’s contact searchable with the on-device index which works with the updated NSUserActivity API for storing app states.

Here’s a tutorial from Gabriel Theodropoulus demonstrating how to use the framework through the creation of a simple app using IMDB data, and then making that data searchable using Core Spotlight with a downloadable example project.

You can find the Core Spotlight tutorial on the AppCoda blog.

A nice guide on using the Core Spotlight framework.
