style checking tool for objective c

As large-scale projects involving many programmers often produce code that is inconsistent in style, our team searched for a tool to use with Objective-C that checks for adherence to agreed-upon stylistic guidelines, including the use of braces, paragraph formatting, comment formatting and the declaration of variables. Recently, we have found OcStyle developed by Cue, a productive style checker for use with Objective-C.

debugging location based apps with fakegpsutility

From sports to city guides – many apps now deal with location and heading-related events. Testing those apps is quite a tricky process, as it doesn't matter how well you test it at your current location, if you are going to offer it to users worldwide. Don't panic, there's a better way to fix a naughty bug appearing, for example, only in Honolulu than relying on vague bug reports from Hawaiian users. To lessen this burden, we’ve made FakeGPSUtility, an instrument that allows you to replace data for the CLLocationManager with custom parameters.

creating dynamic forms using angularjs

Recently we participated in a very large project: a new e-procurement system for the Russian government. Our team worked on the Standards & References section, which is technically a database, and one of my specific tasks was to provide data visualization. As the project required creating a fair amount of similar pages, too time-consuming to do manually, I developed a dynamic form-generation solution in AngularJS. Here was my approach.

How to Make a Paper Folding Animation in Android

By Alex Vasilkov on April 24, 2014
Creating a Paper-Like Folding Animation in Android Inspired by Facebook Paper for iOS, in one of our recent projects we decided to implement a similar-style animated effect when opening elements from a list. Initially, we tried to use an existing implementation – the android-flip library that uses OpenGL for rendering animation – but it ended up displaying rather noticeable screen artifacts (image flickering) in latest version of Android. Plus, the library needed considerable modification as it was designed for flipping elements in a list, while our project required animation when opening elements from a list.
