Samsung Galaxy S3 or iPhone 5 – Which one to pick?

On 27, Sep 2012 | No Comments | In Ipad | By Jay Dee

iphone

Now iPhone 5 has been launched and available for sale, people swarm to the Apple Stores all over to buy this new iPhone. There is also Samsung Galaxy S3which was launched recently in May 2012 and available at most of the Smartphone vendors. So which one are you choosing?Apple has witnessed doubled pre-orders for its new iPhone after the launch although critics don’t think Apple came up with a revolutionary iPhone as expected. Rather they praise the Galaxy S3 which has some improved features as compared to iPhone 5. So let’s make a comparison between the two and you judge.

Here you go:

Processor and Memory:

Galaxy S3: 1.4 GHz Quad core Exynos processor; 16/32 GB, extendible to 64GB
iPhone 5: A6 dual-core processor- clocked with 1GHz;  16/32/64 GB

OS:

Galaxy S3: Android Ice Cream Sandwich, soon to be updated to Jelly Bean
iPhone 5: iOS 6; expected to be the best platform for iPhone developers

Screen:

Galaxy S3: 4.8 inch HD Super AMOLED screen with max resolution of 720 x 1280
iPhone 5: 4 inchHD LCD display screen with 640 x 1136 maximum resolution

P.S: iPhone 5 screens looks pretty big with quality media playback and gaming. Apple once stated that its iPhone size is the standard size for a Smartphone. But later proved wrong by companies like Samsung and HTC, Apple itself increased the size of its iPhone.

Size and Weight:

Galaxy S3: 4.69 ounces(133 grams); 8.6 mm thick
iPhone 5: 20 grams lighter weighing 3.95 ounces (112 grams); 7.6 mm thick

Camera:

Galaxy S3: 8MP Rear Face Camera; 1.9 MP Front Facing Camera
iPhone 5: 8MP Rear Face Camera; 0.9 MP Front Facing Camera

NFC(Near Field Communication): A technology to enable fast radio communication between two devices.
Galaxy S3: YES;           iPhone 5: NO

In summary, both the devices are competitive and possess different advantages.  Users need to match their needs and pick accordingly. At the same time, iPhone application development and Android application development both are improving day by day.

Key points for successful iPhone Development

On 31, Jan 2013 | No Comments | In Ipad | By Jay Dee

iphone2After the introduction of iOS platform and the application development possibilities, it has paved new business opportunities for the IT industries as well as individual developers. With the rapidly growing app industry it has become demanding to keep track of changing technology. Here we have come up with some major key points which should be kept in mind by the developer at the time of iPhone application development.

  • Drive revenue for your business by integrating  ‘Geo-Targeted push Notification’, ‘Geo-Targeted Advertising’
  • Integrate NFC (near field communication) system to your application.
  • Use App analytics to monitor the app’s influence on the market. Target your audience and bring market specific features to you app.
  • Avoid these flaws in your mobile app development
  • Irrelevant push notification in the app
  • Sending unnecessary “Rate my app” request to users
  • Integrating Facebook and other social networking sites unnecessarily
  • Avoid using full screen ads. Users hate this.
  • Try to prefer building Native Apps for iPhones to web apps, because some web technologies are still not compatible with the iOS platform.
  • Design intriguing UI to compel the user to use your app. Take inspiration from other successful Mobile application to generate similar experience for the users.
  • iOS development supports numerous programming languages other than Objective-C, such as Ruby, JavaScript, Node.js etc. Choose the language you are comfortable with.
  • Design your app so that it uses minimal battery power. Users are more concerned about the phone battery rather than the app itself.
  • Develop cross-platform apps, so that it can be released for other mobile operating systems.
  • Never build iPhone app that mimics the look and feel of other operating system.
  • Never overdo the application animations and graphics.

iPhone applications are the fastest evolving apps in the app industry. That’s why at Andolasoft, our iPhone application developers keep their skills updated with the latest technology and latest iOS releases to match the competitive market. Here we develop engaging iPhone application to meet our customer’s business requirements.

New Iphone 5 is Big with a Small Wow Factor

On 14, Sep 2012 | No Comments | In Ipad | By Jay Dee

iPhone_device_imagesApple has unveiled its most awaited iPhone, the iPhone 5 in the launch event at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco. As soon as Apple CEO Tim Cook winded up his updated product metrics talk on the stage, marketing chief Phil Schiller went up to introduce the new iPhone 5 and its features. With iPhone application development on the rise and Apple winning the recent patent case, iPhone 5 has gained enough hype among iPhone lovers around the world.

As you try to find the differences between iPhone 5 and iPhone 4S, you’ll find a lot. The iPhone 5 is much bigger and more than 15% thinner than the iPhone 4S. With the body of Glass and Aluminum, its now much lighter weighing about 3.95 ounces in total. Some of the key features which are improved in this new iPhone are:

  • Retinal display stretched from 3.5 inches to 4 inches which gives users and iOS developers some extra space to play around
  • 8MP Camera with backside illumination, in-built panorama mode and smart noise filtering
  • Three in-built microphones for improved in-voice assistant Siri
  • Apple’s new A6 processor which is double fast than other processors
  • Long battery support; as iPhone 5 can stand more than 8 hours of 4G browsing
  • New dock connector called “Lightning” and designer earpods

After looking over these features, you can say that they are evolutionary,but you surely would be looking for a WOW factor which lacks in iPhone 5. Most of these technologies or features are somehow available with Android or other smartphones. Apple has launched the iPhone 5 to give over the edge competition to companies like Samsung, the leading smartphone seller in market. The new iPhone 5 will be on sale in nine countries from 21 September onwards and will be reaching to 240 countries by this year end.

During the event some other Apple products like redesigned iTunes library & new iPod ranges are shown. With various product ranges and more than 7,00,000 apps in the iTunes library, Apple plays a key competitor in the smartphone market. Andolasoft, one of the pioneers of iPhone application development has also opened its toolbox to explore on iPhone 5 and iOS 6. We’ve expert developers who work closely with you in an agile and innovative environment.

Step by step guide to display Images in GridView on iPhone

On 21, May 2013 | No Comments | In Ipad | By Meera M.

Gridview-123

In some iOS apps, displaying images in a single view would make the UI lose its uniformity. It would be difficult to manage images of different resolution. It would be impossible to keep track of thousand of images without using GridView.

This is just like a “Grid View” application. Here we will explore how to display images, programmatically in “Grid view” on an iPhone.

Below are the steps:

Step 1:

  • Open Xcode
  • Create a View base application
  • Give the application name “ImageGrid”.

Step 2:
The directory structure is automatically created by the Xcode which also adds up essential frameworks to it. Now, explore the directory structure to check out the contents of the directory.

Step 3:
Here you need to add one ‘NSObject’ class to the project.

  • Select  project -> New File -> Cocoa Touch -> Objective-C class
  • Give the class name “Images”.

Step 4:Then add an image to the project and give the image name “icon.png”.

Step 5:

  • Open “ImageGridViewController” file and add ‘UITableViewDelegate’ and ‘UITableViewDataSource’
  • Define ‘UITableView’ and ‘NSMutableArray’ classes as well as the buttonPressed: method
  • Import the ‘Image.h’ class and make the following changes.
#import <UIKit/UIKit.h>
#import "Image.h"
@interface ImageGridViewController:UIViewController <UITableViewDelegate, UITableViewDataSource> {
IBOutlet UITableView *tableView;
NSMutableArray  *sections;
}
@property (nonatomic, retain) UITableView *tableView;
@property (nonatomic, retain) NSMutableArray *sections;
-(IBAction)buttonPressed:(id)sender;
@end

Step 6:

  • Double click the ‘ImageGridViewController.xib’ file and open it in the Interface Builder.
  • First drag the ‘TableView’ from the library and place it in the view window.
  • Select ‘tableview’ from the view window and bring up connection inspector and connect ‘dataSource’ to the ‘File’s Owner’ and delegate to the ‘File’s Owner’ icon.
  • Now save the .xib file and go back to Xcode.

Step 7: In the ‘ImageGridViewController.m’ file, make the following changes:

#import "ImageGridViewController.h"
#import "Item.h" @implementation ImageGridViewController
@synthesize tableView,sections;

-(void)loadView{

[super loadView];
sections = [[NSMutableArray alloc] init];

for(int s=0;s<1;s++) { // 4 sections
NSMutableArray *section = [[NSMutableArray alloc] init];

for(int i=0;i<12;i++) {// 12 items in each section
Image *item = [[ Image alloc] init];
item.link=@"New Screen";
item.title=[NSString stringWithFormat:@"Item %d", i];
item.image=@"icon2.png";

[section addObject:item];
}
[sections addObject:section];
}
}

- (NSInteger)numberOfSectionsInTableView:(UITableView *)tableView {
return [sections count];
}

- (NSInteger)tableView:(UITableView *)tableView numberOfRowsInSection:(NSInteger)section {
return 1;
}

- (CGFloat)tableView:(UITableView *)tableView heightForRowAtIndexPath:(NSIndexPath*)indexPath {
NSMutableArray *sectionItems = [sections objectAtIndex:indexPath.section];
int numRows = [sectionItems count]/4;
return numRows * 80.0;
}

-(NSString *)tableView:(UITableView *)tableView titleForHeaderInSection:(NSInteger)section {

NSString *sectionTitle = [NSString stringWithFormat:@"Section  %d", section];
return sectionTitle;
}

- (UITableViewCell *)tableView:(UITableView *)tableView cellForRowAtIndexPath:(NSIndexPath *)indexPath {

static    NSString *hlCellID = @"hlCellID";

UITableViewCell *hlcell = [tableView dequeueReusableCellWithIdentifier:hlCellID];
if(hlcell == nil) {
hlcell = [[[UITableViewCell alloc]
initWithStyle:UITableViewCellStyleDefault reuseIdentifier:hlCellID] autorelease];
hlcell.accessoryType = UITableViewCellAccessoryNone;
hlcell.selectionStyle = UITableViewCellSelectionStyleNone;
}

int section = indexPath.section;
NSMutableArray *sectionItems = [sections objectAtIndex:section];

int n = [sectionItems count];
int i=0,i1=0;

while(i<n){
int yy = 4 +i1*74;
int j=0;
for(j=0; j<4;j++){

if (i>=n) break;
Image *item = [sectionItems objectAtIndex:i];
CGRect rect  = CGRectMake(18+80*j, yy, 40, 40);
UIButton *buttonImage=[[UIButton alloc] initWithFrame:rect];
[buttonImage setFrame:rect];
UIImage *buttonImageNormal=[UIImage imageNamed:item.image];
[buttonImage setBackgroundImage:buttonImageNormal forState:UIControlStateNormal];
[buttonImage setContentMode:UIViewContentModeCenter];
NSString *tagValue = [NSString stringWithFormat:@"%d%d", indexPath.section+1, i];
buttonImage.tag = [tagValue intValue];
//NSLog(@tag….%d", button.tag);
[buttonImage addTarget:self
action:@selector(buttonPressed:)forControlEvents:UIControlEventTouchUpInside];
hlcell.contentView addSubview:buttonImage];
[buttonImage release];

UILabel *label = [[[UILabel alloc]initWithFrame:CGRectMake((80*j)-4,                 yy+44, 80, 12)] autorelease];
label.text = item.title;
label.textColor = [UIColor blackColor];
label.backgroundColor = [UIColor clearColor];
label.textAlignment = UITextAlignmentCenter;
label.font = [UIFont fontWithName:@"ArialMT" size:12];
[hlcell.contentView addSubview:label];
i++;
}
i1 = i1+1;
}
return hlcell;
}
-(IBAction)buttonPressed:(id)sender {
int tagId = [sender tag];
int divNum = 0;
if(tagId<100)
divNum=10;
else
divNum=100;
int section = [sender tag]/divNum;
section -=1;// we had incremented at tag assigning time
int itemId = [sender tag]%divNum;
NSLog(@"…section = %d, item = %d", section, itemId);
NSMutableArray*sectionItems = [sections objectAtIndex:section];
Image    *item    =    [sectionItems objectAtIndex:itemId];
NSLog(@"Image selected…..%@, %@", item.title, item.link);

}

-(void)viewDidLoad{
[super viewDidLoad];
}

-(void)didReceiveMemoryWarning{
[super didReceiveMemoryWarning];
}

-(void)viewDidUnload{
// Release any retained subviews of the main view.
// e.g. self.myOutlet = nil;
}

-(void)dealloc{
[super dealloc];
}
@end

Step 8: Open the ‘Image.h’ file and make the following changes:

#import <Foundation/Foundation.h>
@interface Image:NSObject{
NSString*title;
NSString*link;
NSString*image;
}
@property(nonatomic, copy)NSString*title;
@property(nonatomic, copy)NSString*link;
@property(nonatomic, copy)NSString*image;
@end

Step 9: Make the changes in the ‘Item.m’ file:

#import "Image.h"
@implementation Item
@synthesize title, link, image;
@end

Step 10: Now save it and compile it in the Simulator.

It would be smart to use GridView to display a number of images in a single view because it enables to manage multiple images efficiently. Users are also facilitated to keep track of their images. It becomes eye soothing and looks great on the mobile devices.

Apple iPhone 4S has taken the market sales high compared to iPhone 5

On 17, Dec 2012 | No Comments | In Ipad | By Jay Dee

iphone-4S1Soon after the release of iPhone 5, it went on to become the highest selling iPhone in history, but based on the recent survey, it has shown some reports for which Apple’s investors are alarmed of possible unfavorable events.

According to new research, this suggested that consumer’s interest in Apple’s popular iPhone 5 lineup may have peaked. But shares of Apple have decreased since the last month from September. The share has decreased over 25% from as high as $705.07, for which investors are now beginning to panic about Apple’s future.

UBS analyst Steve Milunovich has estimated for Apple’s fiscal year 2013 and 2014 and has also dropped his price target on Apple shares to $700 from an earlier target of $780. Milunovich quoted “Some of our Chinese sources do not expect the iPhone5 to do as well as the iPhone 4S”.

Recently consumers in China have also revealed that they would prefer iPhone 4S over the new iPhone5. The Wall Street Journal wrote over the iPhone5 launch as “arguably the least eventful launch of an Apple device in the company’s four-year history in the Chinese capital”.

Apple’s iPhone 5 demand didn’t show up as expected because of the fact that Apple delivered iPhone 5 with a familiar design and without any exciting features which was much expected by most of the consumers, along with that the malfunctioning iOS6 map apps also played a major part in decreasing iPhone 5 sales this year, even less than the iPhone 4S. As per the latest survey it is found that, developers still prefer iOS5 over iOS6 for iPhone application development.

iPhone-The largest selling Smartphone in USA irrespective of some flaws

On 30, Nov 2012 | No Comments | In Ipad | By Jay Dee

iphoneSince the release of iPhone 5 and iOS 6, Apple has received mixed reviews for its new operating system as well as the iPhone 5 design. But it has turned out to be the most popular smartphone in US, Apple has managed to gain around 48% of US market share from the iPhone5. Despite of some faulty applications, iPhone is still popular in US

New features like faster processor, taller screen and slimmer design have definitely played a crucial part in driving iPhone’s success to nearly half the share in United States. Surveys reveal that customer’s loyalty is also the reason behind Apple’s profound hold on US market. Beside the hardware updates there are other features like Siri, cloud integration with the safari and Facebook photo sharing integrations, which works seamlessly with the device. As expected, the retina Display is pretty staggering and the A6 chip has improved the performance and speed to a great deal.

With the introduction of iOS6,iPhone application developers have found better opportunity to explore more features and customization of their codes. Since its first release, developers around the world are trying to develop applications for iOS6. The Retina display, taller screen and faster A6 processor allows developers to create stunning application with high resolution images and complex functionalities.

Even though Apple’s Map App is filled with flaws and still remains unfixed, it seems to have no effect on the iPhone lovers in US. They solved the problem by using Google maps instead of Apple’s native navigation app.

Apple iPhone 5 and iPad-Mini: Rumors or Truth

On 16, Aug 2012 | No Comments | In Ipad | By Jay Dee

Lately there are rumors about the iPhone 5 is being under development to have a year end release. If the rumors are true then it will surely bring an excitement among iPhone application development industries. With marginal improvement to iPhone 4, Apple launched the iPhone 4S in 2011 with voice recognition system Siri and a cloud storage service iCloud. Based on the iOS 5.1.1, iPhone 4S acts as hotspot by sharing its internet connection over Wi-Fi, Bluetooth or USB and also users can access the App Store.

As per reports, a Taiwan based manufacturer is assigned with the development of iPhone 5 and the manufacturing process is under way. As per the rumors, the new iPhone will have the back of both glass and aluminum. The most debated features that the iPhone 5 may have are: 7.9 mm thickness, Retinal display, near field communication technology, Passbook feature from iOS and a quad core process in hardware configuration. Above all these there is also a possibility that iPhone 5 will come with a 19 pin dock connector instead of the current 30 pin connector, to include the headset jack aside. If this happens all the old dock connectors available with current versions will be useless.

Apart from iPhone 5, there are also rumors about an iPad Mini(a smaller version of iPad) will be launched in near future. As per anonymous resources its been claimed that that the new iPad Mini will have a screen size of smaller than 8 inches compared to 9.7 inches of iPad. The third generation tablet iPad3 has major features like high resolution Retinal display, 5 MP iSight camera, iLife and iWork apps. If Apple is taking majors to develop iPad Mini or any similar product, hopefully most of these features or some better features will be incorporated into it. As per reports the iPad Mini will be launched during Christmas season of this year, but again there is no official announcement from Apple about these rumors. If iPad Mini is under development then it will surely give tough competition to Google’s recently released tablet Nexus 7.

Most of the mobile application development companies are waiting to see whether these rumors will be true in the near future and ready to develop apps with the help of latest technologies. AndolaSoft adapts a differential approach to become a leading iPhone application development company to fulfill business requirements and serve individuals by developing rather multitasking but simpler iPhone apps. Here at AndolaSoft we follow cutting edge technologies to develop easy-to-use apps to increase business efficiency and productivity. We’ve experienced iPhone application developers who work closely with you in an agile and innovative environment. We have expertise to develop apps those are intuitive and easy-to-use.

Facebook’s free call service for US iPhone Users

On 18, Jan 2013 | No Comments | In Ipad | By Jay Dee

iphone2Facebook recently announced that iPhone users could enjoy free calls in the US over Wi-Fi Messenger for iPhone. This new feature facilitates people from United States that allows them to use Facebook Messenger app to place voice calls with friends using their internet connection or Wi-Fi. The feature comes as a “Free Call” button in the existing app and the users doesn’t have to update to take advantage of this feature.

A lot of users quoted “Free call feature is incredibly simple and useful”. But the app also requires the receiver to have Facebook’s stand-alone app installed on their phone. If the app couldn’t sync with the receiver, the “Free Call” icon appears grey and marked out. The call features look and feel similar to the conventional voice calls. Besides United States, Facebook has mentioned that they have started testing VoIP functionality in Canada.

Facebook has also added a voice message feature for the iPhone users. It enables the user to send recorded messages to their Facebook friends. It works similar to a text message, whereas the text is replaced by a bar recorded with the sender’s voice information.

Apple promises to fix the security exploit that lets people gain access to locked iPhones

On 15, Feb 2013 | No Comments | In Ipad | By Jay Dee

iphone

In our previous post we had outlined some of the latest features of iOS 6.1 update, mentioning it to be a fix for its old mistakes. But it turns out that, it does have some security flaws which let the users bypass the locked iPhone devices.

This exploit was first spotted by a French user who later uploaded a video to YouTube, by demonstrating the procedure to unlock a pass-code protected iOS device.  Seeing this Apple has promised to release a fast fix to this security issue. In a statement, the company said “Apple takes user security very seriously, we are aware of this issue, and will deliver a fix in a future software update.”  But the company has neither offered a specific timeline for its next update nor any quick fix to the handle issue.

The video depicts a sequence of steps in which the French guy easily hacks the “locked” iPhone, that was running iOS 6.1. The process involved is somewhat weird, such as ending an emergency call, consecutive pressing of home button and etc. Below I have provided the exact steps as posted by the users, to unlock the iPhone.

First part:
-Go to emergency call, push down the power button and tap cancel.
-Dial 112 and tap green and immediately red.
-Go to lock screen.

Ok…ready for second part:
-Go to passcode screen.
-Keep pushing down the power button …1…2…3…seconds and before showing the slider “turn off”…tap the emergency call button and …voilá!
-Then without releasing the power button press the home button and ready…

The procedure allows the users to access contacts, photos and to make calls. But it doesn’t offer access to its home screen or any iOS apps that exists on the home screen. The iPhone lock screen hack seems to work on iPhone 4S, iPhone 4 too, if they are running iOS 6.1.

IPhone 5S and iPhone mini is expected to release this year

On 08, Mar 2013 | No Comments | In Ipad | By Jay Dee

iPhone-123123

According to some latest reports from an Apple Insider, it is claimed that, currently they are working on new iPhone models, which will be unveiled later this year. It is expected that there will be two iPhone models. One of these will be the next generation iPhone, presumably iPhone 5S and the other a cheaper iPhone with a polycarbonate body. The next iPhone is expected by 2014 whereas the cheaper iPhone model can be expected to be released sooner this year.

MacRumours has also reported that according to Barclay’s analyst Kirk Yang, Apple is undeniably working on iPhone 5S and a cheaper iPhone, and about to launch in the August-September of this year. Yang assumes that both the iPhones will have two models, one being made especially for Chinese customers. MacRumours further stated that, “The report claims that Apple is still weighing production volume for the new phones, working to estimate how much the lower-cost iPhone will cut into iPhone 5S sales and still gauging appropriate volumes for an expansion to China Mobile. Regardless, Apple does expect total iPhone shipments to be higher than last year’s levels.”

KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo point out that the next generation iPhone will be called iPhone 5S, which will be identical to the iPhone 5. It will feature a faster 28 nanometer A7 chip, fingerprint sensor, smart LED flash and enhanced camera functionalities with f2.0 aperture. The phone is expected to be available in two colors, just like the current iPhones, which contradicts its earlier rumors that new iPhone models would ship with multiple colors like the new iPod touch. Pointing to the budget friendly iPhone 5, he pointed that it would be priced between $350 and $450, with a comparatively thicker (8.2 mm) plastic casing. He also revealed that the production might begin during the third quarter of this year.

Analyst Brian White pointed that Apple will release a new iPhone model with varying screen sizes that will help the company to earn revenue for reach models. He mentioned that the smaller iPhone version is specifically manufactured to target Chinese market and to open up opportunities in India. Peter Misek’s findings mentioned that the next iPhone will feature a new super HD camera and display, longer battery power, NFC connectivity, IGZO screen for Retina+, 128GB storage, and could be available in multiple colors. He stated that many iPhone 5S prototypes were being tested in the recent past. According to him the device had Retina+ IGZO display, A7 quad-core processor and in-built gesture control. It will feature a new design with no home button. He also referred the iPhone mini will be offered at a price range of $200 to $250 and said that the project hasn’t been approved yet.

Larger display with sharp images would help the iphone application developer to build vibrant iPhone applications with high definition images and sharp looking UIs. It would also affect the app design strategy for developers and designers.

On 21, Jan 2013 | No Comments | In Ipad | By Jay Dee

iphone2Apple has published latest patent, explaining Apple’s new iwallet concept. It allows the individuals to configure number of accounts, which can be set-up to control the spending limits. This patent is called “Parental Controls” that could help parents to limit their child’s ability to spend money via an iPhone.

The control can be configured for categories like, specific places where purchases can take place and the types of transactions which can be allowed. The patent also suggests that, parent will be notified about their child’s activity on the accounts, including the details of the online purchases. The app can also be set for the users, so that they cannot buy some unethical products. The E-Wallet app is enabled with a primary account that is connected to a credit card.

Users are able to use the app to manage transactions using their iPhone. The patent also hints that it will integrate mobile payment solution so that it can be used outside of its ecosystem in the future. It also reveals that the iPhone would integrate NFC (Near field communication) chip for convenience. This technology is still in its early stage of iPhone application development. So NFC enabled monetary transaction may not be secure completely.

iPhone applications are the fastest evolving apps in the app industry. That’s why at Andolasoft, our iPhone application developers keep their skills updated with the latest technology and iOS releases to match this competitive market. Here we develop engaging iPhone application to meet our customer’s business requirements.

How to put custom Gradient backgrounds in IOS App

On 15, Jul 2013 | No Comments | In Ipad | By Meera M.

iOS_screenshot-196x300

Introduction:

It is essential to have a unique design for every iPhone application; in order to deliver the most intriguing and compelling interfaces, customization is necessary in every step. A great place to start is to implement your own background and use a clear table view background. Many iOS apps are now following this. Another way is to add a custom background colour. It is as easy as setting the cells background color property.

I tried both the above methods, and still not satisfied with it. There are numerous applications that have pretty similar interfaces. That’s why I thought about putting a gradient view as the background.

Core Graphics is a great resource that helped me in the right direction. It is supposed to customize the background of a cell, but I used it as a basis for my code to draw a gradient.

Here is an example of GradientView

GradientView.h

#import <UIKit/UIKit.h>
@interface GradientView : UIView
{
}
@end

GradientView.m

#import "GradientView.h"
#import <QuartzCore/QuartzCore.h>
@implementation GradientView
//
// layerClass
//
// returns a CAGradientLayer class as the default layer class for this view
//
+ (Class)layerClass
{
return [CAGradientLayer class];
}
//
// setupGradientLayer
//
// Construct the gradient for either construction method
//
- (void)setupGradientLayer
{
CAGradientLayer *gradientLayer = (CAGradientLayer *)self.layer;
gradientLayer.colors =
[NSArray arrayWithObjects:
(id)[UIColor colorWithRed:0.85 green:0.85 blue:0.85 alpha:0.8].CGColor,(id)[UIColor colorWithRed:1.0 green:1.0 blue:1.0 alpha:1].CGColor,
(id)[UIColor colorWithRed:1.0 green:1.0 blue:1.0 alpha:1].CGColor,(id)[UIColor colorWithRed:1.0 green:1.0 blue:1.0 alpha:1].CGColor,
nil];
self.backgroundColor = [UIColor clearColor];
}
//
// initWithFrame:
//
// Initialise the view.
//
- (id)initWithFrame:(CGRect)frame
{
self = [super initWithFrame:frame];
if (self)
{
CAGradientLayer *gradientLayer = (CAGradientLayer *)self.layer;
//gradientLayer.cornerRadius = 10;
gradientLayer.colors =
[NSArray arrayWithObjects:
(id)[UIColor colorWithRed:0.255/255.0 green:0.215/255.0 blue:0.0/255.0 alpha:0.5].CGColor,(id)[UIColor colorWithRed:1.0 green:1.0 blue:1.0 alpha:1].CGColor,
(id)[UIColor colorWithRed:1.0 green:1.0 blue:1.0 alpha:1].CGColor,(id)[UIColor colorWithRed:1.0 green:1.0 blue:1.0 alpha:1].CGColor,(id)[UIColor colorWithRed:1.0 green:1.0 blue:1.0 alpha:1].CGColor,
nil];
self.backgroundColor = [UIColor clearColor];
}
return self;
}
@end

Then u can use this class object in “cellForRowAtIndex” method of “UITableViewController” class as follows

- (UITableViewCell *)tableView:(UITableView *)tableView cellForRowAtIndexPath:(NSIndexPath *)indexPath
{
static NSString *CellIdentifier = @"Cell";
UITableViewCell *cell = [tableView dequeueReusableCellWithIdentifier:CellIdentifier];
if (cell == nil) {
cell = [[UITableViewCell alloc]
initWithStyle:UITableViewCellStyleDefault         reuseIdentifier:CellIdentifier] ;            cell.accessoryType=UITableViewCellAccessoryDisclosureIndicator;
cell.selectionStyle = UITableViewCellSelectionStyleNone;
cell.backgroundView = [[[GradientView alloc] init] autorelease];
}
// Configure the cell.
cell.textLabel.text = [self.allFolder objectAtIndex:indexPath.row];
cell.textLabel.backgroundColor = [UIColor clearColor];
cell.imageView.image=[UIImage imageNamed:@"folder.png"];
return cell;
}

Conclusion:

Many times, we need to make the application stand out from the crowd. While redesigning, we need something that would make our list of contents distinct from all the other table views. Hence, implementing custom background tables in ‘UITableView’ will be a smart way to start.

AppScan from IBM brings security to the iPhone developers against hackers

On 27, Feb 2013 | No Comments | In Ipad | By Jay Dee

IBM has recently launched a new application to help developers secure their code and data in iOS applications. AppScan 8.7 searches through iOS application code and alerts developers when it finds any flaws. This software also analyses the apps that developers might want to use on Apple devices to check for vulnerabilities. Meanwhile it alerts the IT security personnel’s about the potential threats.

IBM said that over 45.6 billion iOS apps were downloaded in 2012, which is why securing Smartphone and other iOS devices should be a top priority for organizations. IBM has developed AppScan Source application after analyzing over 40,000 mobile APIs by using Apple’s Software Development Kit (SDK). These API profiles were added to the IBM AppScan Source Security Knowledge-base and tied to the analysis engine. IBM AppScan Source 8.7 for iOS is expected to hit the market on 25th of March. IBM claims that it will facilitate the users the ability to improve security quality without sacrificing the time to market of mobile application projects. It will also allow the FIs and others, to protect each mobile application release in the face of constant updates. The new security protocol is part of IBM’s over-arching Mobile First initiative.

In addition, IBM AppScan 8.7 can reduce the cost of developing secure applications by finding early security vulnerabilities in the development cycle. It provides developers with a view where flaws may surface in their applications, allowing potential security drawbacks to be handled at an early stage and avoiding further pitfalls in development process.

New features in IBM AppScan 8.7 include:

Multiple language support: The software also features language support for Objective-C, JavaScript, Java which includes the ability to call APIs and data flow analysis that would generate trace information. This new feature enables organizations to build secure enterprise mobile apps, regardless of technology, employees and partners.

US government regulation compliance: Provides compliance with two crucial standards – Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) Publication 140-2 and Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6).

This project showcases IBM’s execution of its [Mobile First] strategy to help clients incorporate security into their infrastructure and solutions from the design, development and testing phases rather than leaving security to become an afterthought,” said Caleb Barlow, director of application, data and mobile security, IBM.

Most companies have stated that their customers are looking for ways to secure their apps and data. Hence secure mobile apps and auto security tests are a must to ensure their customers that their data are safe.

With respect to iphone development, Caleb Barlow also quoted “security into the infrastructure and solutions from the design, development and testing phases rather than leaving security to become an afterthought.” AppScan Source for iOS is said to be available from 25th of March. IBM started its AppScan range of products in 2008, and has previously launched a version that scans Android apps.
