For a while now, I really wanted to work on a machine learning project, especially since Apple let you import trained model in your iOS app now. Last September, I took part of a 24h hackathon for an Ecommerce business, that was my chance to test it. The idea was simple: a visual search app, listing recommended products based on a picture.
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.
