This subject is something that really interests me, its an awesome technology that has many prospects for the future. So, Of course I would like to know how it works.
Before you continue reading, I would like you to know that the information written below is for education purpose only. Using the things explained below (for what ever reason) might (most likely) be breaking the Swedish law (since the volvo on call server is located in Göteborg (Gothenburg)). Contacting and use data from the Volvo on call API might be seen as data trespassing, which Sweden has a law against (Describes as “Dataintrång” defined as crime in 4 chapter 9 § of the crime code (brottsbalken)).
As some of you might know, I am writing an XCode Cookbook. This is a book which will contain only tutorials on how to do different things within XCode. So, no tutorials like “Adding Facebook to my iPhone app”, but more in the style like “Adding custom location to the iOS Simulator” or “Managing multiple targets within my project”.
I have a list of about 50-60 tutorials, but I need more. I need about 40 tutorials (3-4 chapters) more, so I am looking for tips; and since you, my readers, come here for such things, who better to ask but YOU!
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”.
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.
