iOS 10 implements a 3D Touch Share option on the home screen for all applications.
The problem with the Share option is that the intent is not clear: what are you actually sharing? A link to the app? The app itself? Some app content? This seems like a way to shoehorn 3D Touch onto all apps on the home screen.
Xcode 8 promises to bring many improvements to Core Data, however, it seems to be having an issue in that it stops working pretty quickly even after several reinstalls.
My issue is that Xcode generates new NSManagedObject’s and then can’t find them in the build process. Instead, I see the following error:
<unknown>:0: error: no such file or directory: '~/Library/Developer/Xcode/DerivedData/Project-ehewnupfwfyaezbdvoohlbtmspad/Build/
Interestingly, the file the error is referring to — .Country+CoreDataClass.swift — exists in the folder above without the leading .. I’ve filed Radar 27151410.
Yesterday I released v1.1 of The FFI List and with it, I’m trying a new business model. The app is now free and from July onwards new FFI List downloads will be accessible through an auto-renewing subscription.1
I intend to keep this going for six months and then review the uptake.
We’re introducing exciting new capabilities and tools designed to help grow your app’s business and engage with new and existing customers on the App Store.
Search Ads is an efficient and easy way for you to promote your app directly within the U.S. App Store search results, helping customers discover or reengage with your app, while respecting their privacy. Starting this summer, you’ll be able to participate in the Search Ads beta and see the ads in action.
We’re opening auto-renewable subscriptions to all app tags including games, increasing developer revenue for eligible subscriptions after one year, providing greater pricing flexibility, and more.
Search Ads has been rumoured for a while and their implementation seems to be a fair to users from a privacy standpoint and to developers—both large and indie—from an ad pricing standpoint. Subscription changes open up the possibility of free trials—something developers have been demanding for a long, long time!
In addition, App Store review times have been cut to 48 hours in 90% of cases. I can vouch for this, one my apps was submitted on Saturday and was approved within a day.
