It has been couple months since my last post and despite the idea, a lot of things kept me busy far from blogging. Looking back, it all articulates around the same idea: why it’s important to always keep your skills sharp.
Couple months ago, I’ve built an app and released it on the App Store. Since published, I really wanted to see how it lives and understand how to make it grow. Ideally, I wanted to know if there is a product / market fit. In the article, I describe each steps and ideas that helped my app grow and what I learnt from it.
I recently went for a Swift conference and UI automation testing was one of the subject. I already mentioned it with Appium in the past but I think it’s time to go back to it and explain why today I still prefer using Apple’s testing framework instead.
I recently implemented 3D touch for an app and I was very interested about home screen quick actions. If it can be a good way to improve user experience, it doesn’t mean your app always needs it. In this article, I explain how to add home screen shortcut for your app in Swift but mostly why can justify implementing it.
If you care about user experience, error handling is a big part you have to cover. We can design how an mobile app looks like when it works, but what happen when something goes wrong. Should we display an alert to the user? Can the error stay silent? And mostly how to implement it the best way with your current design pattern? Let’s see our options while following MVVM pattern.
