iOS_ZIP-KIT_ZipKit_Framework_Xcode_tutorialOne of the i3Factory developer is working on a project of sending paths attaching photos, text, and audio / video which needs to import a framework library for zipping files.
He found that this library seems to be constantly updated (usually found only those “no arc” for iOS4 ..)
 https://github.com/kolpanic/ZipKit .

In ZipKit is present a brief guide to the installation, but Claudio, our Italian developer, finds it extremely superficial and not riescito to import anything (that is ZipKit.framework libtouchzipkit.a remain the “reds“). Inside Zip Kits are also linked apps that should be an example, but unloading the one for iOS and trying to start it now Build Failed”. Our developer is still inexperienced on how to integrate projects on other projects and setting dependencies.

Let us then explain how the whole mechanism, what needs to touch, what not, etc.

First of all, given that the project is for iOS is necessary to exclude the Framework (the Framework exist only for OSX and have been introduced in the last WWDC only iOS8 and now to create a Framework iOS7 must follow a fairly intricate process explained here: http://www.raywenderlich.com/65964/create-a-framework-for-ios).
So the static library of interest and the libtouchzipkit.a (and the otherthe static library for OSX).
Our CTO, Carlo Vigiani, proceeded in this way and was able to compile a simple project (ZKtest da scaricare qui that uses the class ZKFileArchive (we did not try the result, but I assume that it works).

Hoping that this explanation will be helpful, import projects is not always obvious:
1) Open the project containing the application
2) To clone from github the whole project ZipKit and copy the entire project folder within your project (this step is not necessary but recommended so you’re sure to have the version of ZipKit right for your project ).
ZipKit_Test-0
3) from the Finder, drag the file into the folder ZipKit.xcodeproj of the project (see figure: Charles has created an app ZKTest)

ZipKit_Test-1
4) At this point you have to end up in the target Build Phases of your app (in the figure ZKTest) libraries that you will use: here I added libz.dylib (system) and libtouchzkpkit.a (given that you have to see that you’ve uploaded the project ZipKit as a sub-project of the main project); see Figure

5) also so that you can see the headers you need to add the header path is the path where ZipKit. If in step (2) avevevato copied the folder under the project ZipKit inside the main project folder, you only need to add. / ZipKit. In our case given that Charles did not copy the project must discover the absolute or relative path with respect to its project. Typically Charles goes like this:
5.1) in XCode select the sub-project (in this case ZipKit)

ZipKit_Test-35.2) nell’assistant XCode recover the path of the sub-project to the main project (see figure): in this case was .. /.. / Frameworks / Date / ZipKit / ZipKit.xcodeproj

5.3) now. H file is the main ZipKit.h that is located just below the directory you just searched, and then we go to our main target, we select Build Settings and Header Search Path and add the path previously found (see figure)

ZipKit_Test-4

5.4) also we look for the section “Other Linker Flags” and add -ObjC-all_load” (see figure)

At this point the project (ZKtest download it here) and ready. Where we need to import the file “ZipKit.h” (note that we have indicated ZipKit / ZipKit.h given that the header file is located two levels below ZipKit header path than we had indicated before ../../Frameworks/Data/ZipKit/ZipKit/ZipKit.h

#import “ZipKit/ZipKit.h”
In general you have to keep these things in mind when you import a project:
  • headers needed for the compiler to check the correctness of your code and generate the binary code that calls functions; the header search path by default points to the project and the framework of system, so it’s up to you to manually add additional header search path
  • even if you have entered the correct header, then the linker will have to find the binary code associated with the functions you referenced: iOS, since there are no frameworks (at least until iOS7), you must load the static libraries (which are then copied to the application and statically loaded along with the rest of the track of the app): you can specify the static libraries in the Build Phases -> Link binary with libraries
  • You can optionally add in the “Target Dependenciestarget touchzipkit”: this ensures that the compilation of your code should always be preceded by the compilation of the original library: this and useful if you make changes to the event, in this case forced the generation of the target . Probably you will not do this if ZipKit compiled separately and then do not touch it anymore. But realize that this issuggested in case you have decided to support several architectures or change SDK (compilation assures you that there is no incompatibility). This of course should not be done if you provide a library without source code (for example, Urban Airship or Google Analytics does not give you the source code and therefore do not need to add the project in the target dependencies).

Brevetto _patent_iPhone_curve_display_schermo_curvo

Rumors comes from Bloomberg, one of the world’s leading providers of information on the financial markets, Apple is developing an iPhone with curved screen and new pressure sensors.
Bloomberg also reveals the patent filed by Apple Inc., which makes the point that it is developing new models of the iPhone that most likely will include larger screens with curved glass and advanced sensors can detect the different levels

new-iPhone_curve_display_schermo_curvoTwo models are scheduled for release in the second half of next year would be characterized by larger displays with the glass that curves down at the edges. Sensors capable of distinguishing touches heavy or light on the screen will be incorporated in subsequent models, always  part of Bloomberg rumors (source: http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2013-11-10/apple-said-developing-curved-iphone-screens-enhanced-sensors.html) .

Samsung_galaxi_curve_diplay_schermo-curvoWith these two new models, curved screens of 4.7 inches and 5.5 inches, Apple is expected to approach the size of 5.7-inch Galaxy 3 Not3 that Samsung Electronics Co. launched last September. The South Korean manufacturer last month has launched a Galaxy with curved screen, the latest mobile phone in a variety of sizes and price ranges that Samsung is helping to keep ahead of Apple’s global market share in the sale of mobile phones.

The new smartphone from Apple are still in development and production plans have not been completed, said the source Bloomberg adding that the company would probably drop them going in the third quarter of 2014.

Apple then broke up with her glorious past in the month of September, when he presented two versions of the iPhone iPhone 5s with more advanced features and l ‘iPhone 5c colorful and somewhat lower prices, as part of a strategy that would see her compete on larger markets.

The first iPhone, released in 2007, offered a very functional and innovative touchscreen technology. Apple continues with its history of experimentation and the development of new materials in collaboration with the best suppliers of new technologies that will be able to improve the functions of your device.

iPhone_curve_display_schermo_curvo

Also according to Bloomberg said that Apple would open a new plant in Arizona to make components for its devices.

In conclusion

The fact that Apple could announce two new and different devices no longer so surprising, if we remember what he did with the iPhone and 5c 5s.
Therefore expect other sources that we confirm the introduction of pressure sensors, or rather of a screen that is capable of measuring the force applied on it, so darendere writing and drawing experience even more ‘innovative and fulfilling, and above all creative.

In an interesting article Matthew Panzarino asks, “’cause the look of the design iOS7 is so’ different from the previous” (Source: http://cdn.theapplelounge.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/06/iOS6vsiOS7_icons.png ).

After seeing the presentation of Apple iOS 7 now you know that the icons on the home screen (springboard cd) will change slightly.
Many of the new icons were designed mainly by members of the marketing and communications department at Apple, no more ‘by the development team of app. Jony Ive (now head of Human Interaction Apple) has guided step by step the design team to set the look and the color palette of the icons of the so-called stock app.

 

 

iOS7 Springboard

 

As has really changed the appearance of the icons of apps compared to iOS 6?
Let us see the comparison image created by @ pawsupforu:

Note that some icons have been taken directly from OS X (Safari), while others have been completely redesigned (Calendar)

ICONS DIMENSION , from 114px to 120px

One of the major changes (over the design “flat”) is the change of size of the icons.
The application icons are now 120px iOS 7 (compared to the previous format of 114px) and the radius (Border Radius) is now 27px (20px compared to previous year). With this change comes the need to change the icon size of our app.
Fortunately, the designers Seevi Kargwal he designed the aforementioned iOS icon 7 in PSD format to help facilitate the process of redesign. You can check out more of the work.

iOS 7 Icon Rounded Corner Radius

The web site “Cult of Mac” argues that Jony Ive has given to the icons of iOS7 the same rounded corners iMac.

Cult of Mac in his article argues that the new Director of Human Interface, Jony Ive, has redesigned iOS operating system as a multi-layered Parallax.
Ive qindi migrated its design philosophies and the hardware on iOS Messages app icon shows how you can get fecendo so that the corners of the icon messages have the same tapered edges that lie on the products Apple iMac.
The difference is only a small number of pixels that most users will probably never noticed, so Brad Ellis, who first discovered it, he created his own GIF comparison so you can actually see the changes:

Le icone di iOS7 hanno la stessa curvatura degli angoli dell'iMac
The icons of iOS7 have the same curvature of the corners of the iMac Brat Ellis.

In his blog Joel Page detailing the best corner of the icon as you can ‘see in the image below:

The new icon looks like a square with iOS7 dimesioni 120×120 px.

We conclude by considering the fact that the design changes with iOS 7 there sobno important innovations in the design of the icon.

The icons on the iPhone home screen received a slight increase in size to 114px by 57px and 60px and 120 px respectively.
