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.

Automatic incremental build number in xCode 4.3


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.

So, lets get started.

iTunes Store RSS App Fetcher

I think thats the longest title I could think off… or is it? Anyways… with regards to the questions and/or complaints I have gotten about my (somewhat “crappy”) itunes parser which I wrote in the past, I decided to quickly put together a new parser, just for fetching specific app data.

So, what did I do? Well, it basicly parses the data from the “Apple – iTunes – RSS Generator” and shows it for you in your browser. This could be usefull for those of you that want to implement real-time iTunes appstore data into your website.

Running PHP5.3.x and Apache on a Mac


In 2007 I became a switcher and life got easier for me… everything got easier, except installing PHP and Apache. So, mainly for myself–I thought to write this small “handy”? tutorial on how to install this quickly. The reason behind is also because I recently re-installed my Mac and am at this point again. This lets me just copy-and-paste for me in the future 😛
