This might be a bit off-topic with regards to what I usually write about, and it might also be a “Flame-war” magnet… yet I just have to write about my “wonderful” Android experience.
Since the release of XCode 4.2 I have noticed a certain error poping up after buidling reguarly. The error incidcates that the iOS Simulator already has a process running or is hung. The anoying part is that even if you quit XCode and iOS Simulator, the problem wont go away.
This is the error:
Couldn’t register com.myApp.debug with the bootstrap server. Error: unknown error code. This generally means that another instance of this process was already running or is hung in the debugger.Program received signal: “SIGABRT”.
iOS 4 & iOS 5 tutorial: UIAlertView with link to WIFI or Settings app using Reachability and XCode 4.2
This tutorial is about how to make your apps UX just a little bit better. Have you ever noticed the message in google maps stating that if you activate Wifi you would get a better positioning? Or that when you want to send a text message and your phone is on flight mode, that you get the message to de-activate flight mode in order to send a text?
Well, it is actually really simple. These are just links that are opened. So, in this tutorial I will show you how to do this using e.g. Reachability.
I have always wondered how to get a better build number in my projects, instead of having to change is manually. So, I finally googled it and found a solution. Or better yet, found several… but none working for xCode 4.3.
In xCode 4.3 you can actually change the build number manually in the project settings. I have not found a solution yet to activate an automatic build number update, however I have not search so much for that either.
