Beyond enabling iOS developers to easily store data on the cloud, as well as authenticating users through their robust SDKs, Firebase also provides a convenient storage solution for media. Firebase Storage allows developers to store and retrieve audio, image, and video files on the cloud. That is, Firebase Storage exposes a set of SDKs to give developers the ability to manage their user-generated content assets alongside its sibling product, the Firebase Realtime Database, which stores user text content.
Developers are constantly striving to make their apps more advanced, but are they actually usable by everybody? For most apps, the answer is no. In order to reach the largest audience, let’s learn about ways to make our apps more accessible.
In my previous article about secure coding in Swift, I discussed basic security vulnerabilities in Swift such as injection attacks. While injection attacks are common, there are other ways your app can be compromised. A common but sometimes-overlooked kind of vulnerability is race conditions.
From minimizing pointer use to strong type checking at compile time, Swift is a great language for secure development. But that means it’s tempting to forget about security altogether. There are still vulnerabilities, and Swift is also enticing to new developers who haven’t yet learned about security.
This year’s WWDC announcements focused on the exciting new SDKs, such as ARKit, and the changes to iOS 11. However, Apple has also made significant improvements to Xcode with Xcode 9. Not to be outshone by the other announcements, the new version of Xcode is a leap forward for coders. Developers are sure to be happy!
Apple’s latest IDE version, Xcode 9, is being released along with iOS 11 this September. And it’s a huge update! Fans of Git for source control management (SCM) are big winners in this upcoming release.
The main purpose of a digital signature is to verify the integrity of some information. For a simple example, let’s say you had a file that was transferred over the network and you want to check that the entire file was transferred correctly. In that case, you would use a checksum.
You have worked weeks or months on your first iOS application, and you are ready to submit your masterpiece to Apple’s App Store. How do you do this? Is your application ready for submission? I am sure that some of these questions have entered your mind at one point or another.
In this tutorial, you’ll be learning about the CocoaPods dependency manager and how to implement it in your app. We’ll go through the steps from creating an Xcode project all the way to importing frameworks. Along the way, we will learn about some basic Terminal commands and what they do.
Building an app used to be the domain of hardcore developers only, but with over 1,400 app templates for sale at СodeHolder, even complete beginners to coding can build an app.
Do you want to learn more about gamification with Unity? How about mastering Vue.js or Meteor? Our latest batch of eBooks will teach you all you need to know about these topics and more.
That was quite the keynote. Don’t you think? Nobody knew what to expect, due to the absence of rumors or leaks. But I think Ispeak for many Apple developers when I say that it was a great keynote.
Any app that saves the user’s data has to take care of the security and privacy of that data. As we’ve seen with recent data breaches, there can be very serious consequences for failing to protect your users’ stored data. In this tutorial, you’ll learn some best practices for protecting your users’ data.
This is the first of three articles on securing user data at rest. In this post, we’ll start off with the basics of protecting data on iOS so you can learn the current best practices for storing data securely with Swift.
