So it’s probably the most common thing you want to do in iOS development, and that’s to create a page which shows a scrollable list of items, that is, a UITableView. UITableView, of course, comes with 4 default table cell styles, which can accommodate basic needs, but almost inevitably, you want to do something that isn’t covered by the default types. Perhaps you want to give it a nice gradient background, or maybe you would like to support multiline detail text, or maybe you’d like to have images loaded remotely, on a background thread, in order to maintain maximal scrolling performance. Maybe you need to add a UITextfield or a UISwitch. The variations are endless. As are the ways that you can implement a solution.Read More
Core data is great for quickly putting together models, but it is also really good at letting you extend your models, during development. You know, so that we can actually do the Agile part of Agile Development. Especially if you just want to add or delete a few fields or a few entities, it makes modifications quite straight forward.
One thing that I missed in XCode 4 was the ability to add a new attribute to an entity, and then right-click for the contextual menu to copy both its property declaration and core data accessors for the header, and less importantly, the dynamic implementations for the impl file. You could even grab them as Objective-C 1.0 or 2.0.
They are still there, but somewhat hidden. You still copy as before, but now, go to the header file of your NSManagedObject entity, place your cursor
BTW, the model editor is still pretty buggy. One thing that seems to happen consistently is that relationships disappear, in map mode. Just try opening and closing the Attributes disclosure triangle to fix it.Read More
At Mobilesce, our artists and animators are always busy working towards creating strong graphics and smooth animations. This eight frame run cycle was part of a series created during a study of animal run cycle.
Below are the stills from the animation.

Dakota Dog is one of the farm scene characters created for the fun productivity iPad application You Did It! This application is designed to help motivate your children to do their chores. Children earn credits by completing their chores which can then be used to buy parent-approved rewards or animated, interactive digital stickers.
Below are more frames of Dakota Dog.
