New MapKit features
In WWDC 2013 Apple introduced many new MapKit features for iOS 7 and added this framework in OSX 10.9 (Mavericks). One of the major changes, which in my opinion didn’t get enough relevance in the developer community, has been the introduction of some base classes that allow full map customization and support for offline maps.

We often have to update our application with the necessary high-resolution images needed for the new iPad (iPad 3 or iPad 4). Fortunately, the new iPad Mini has maintained the same resolution as the first iPad is 1024 × 768 pixels.
Since it is not always easy to find the documents ufficali Apple, in this article I have again gathered all the information we need to update the icons, the intro, and so on.

You may think that video composition should be limited to applications like iMovie or Vimeo so you can consider this subject, at least from the point of view of the developer, to be limited to a niche of video experts. Instead it can be extended to a broader range of applications, not essentially limited to practical video editing. In this blog I will provide an overview of the AV Foundation framework applied on a practical example.

iPhone5 has a larger screen than its predecessors. Developers iOS6 must support resolutions of 640 x 1136 px instead of 640 x 960 px pf iPhone4.
But even in this case if you follow the logic Apple work to be done is not at all complicated.

Recently in some app, we have significantly reduced the size of the IPA file that we send to Apple.
We develope an app with a lot of graphic content an we have reduced about 60% the size of the packet  sent to Apple, the so-called bundle file.

Normally developers do not have Photoshop and aren’t design guru and,  in general,  certainly hate to redo their work to meet the needs of the expert designers.
So we decided to report a infographic guide designed for designers who want to make App for IOS and help send the correct files for the developer.

When you decide to design an app you must always follow the basic principles of industrial design.
Many people think of this commissioning an app, but when you are describing the application and then how their idea can be translated by the user experience and graphic interface (User Interface & User Experience), they are unprepared and very often they hide behind phrases like “I do not know this is a job for engineers, lets see this to the technicians …see ye.”

Increasingly, our customers and readers submit proposals for developing an app without using standard documents and without using those terminologies that may help to understand properly how many and which features should have given the app.<br>

If you want to convey an idea that allows you to create an app for iPhone, iPad or Android is necessary to prepare a  Mockapp and / or Functional Document which will contain all the detailed features of the app for your iPhone or iPad or Android together with a layout that makes understanding the User Interface and User Experience.

The problems of large IT companies are often sought in the development sector, so that the larger the company and more is looking to outsource their development. In some cases they try to control all the know-how internalising the functional areas at the expense of development.

According to various rumors and mainly based on the statements of Richard Shim (DisplaySearch), the leading provider of display and LG, Samsung and Sharp would started production of Retinal Display for iPad3 with twice the resolution of 2048 × 1536 pixels. The screen will appear the same size as the iPad, 10-inch LCD (not AMOLED) with aspect ratio of 4:3.
Apple could  start the commercialization of iPad 3 new generation in the first quarter of , 2012.
