At work I’m in the midst of upgrading Find&Save to Xcode 7 and in this post I thought I would capture the issues I ran into while migrating our app to the latest build tools. I decided to keep my Xcode 6 install by renaming it “Xcode 6” and installing Xcode 7 along side it and all that worked pretty seamlessly (though keep reading because the AppStore updates will bite you). Once installed I opened our project workspace and hit Project | Build and thus began the journey of our migration. Continue reading Upgrading an iOS project from Xcode 6 to 7→
In XCode I ran into an error which was the result of a (my) bad merge that caused this problem when building an app:

While working on Find&Save‘s Cash Dash Inbox feature which is built using React Native I started the node packager and launched the app into SIM but got this error as soon as the app attempted to load the bundle:
A year ago at Google announced HTTPS as a ranking signal and following suit I added SSL support to aroundairports.com and a few days ago I received an renewal email from GoDaddy for the cert. I recalled setting SSL up on AppEngine was a royal PITA and aligning the stars just so took several hours over a few days spelunking around the web to piece together the right steps. So this year I couldn’t quire recall all of the details though I had written a few key pieces of information down which really helped. Continue reading Updating SSL certificate on Google AppEngine→
In November ’14 the Wanderful Media team launched a new feature within our Find&Save mobile apps called Cash Dash, a geographically targeted offer platform giving retailers the opportunity to reach consumers at key locations while out shopping. Using location aware features on iOS and Android the platform is able to suggest offers while users are out-and-about shopping. Leveraging our data on hundreds of retailers and hundreds of thousands of retailer locations as well as shopping malls all across the U.S. the platform provides retailers a rich ability to reach consumers at or near their stores with customized messaging and unique offers to help draw them in.

My request to Apple on the camera icon on the iOS Lock Screen:
The camera icon on the iOS lock screen is to a child like a Fart Gun from Despicable Me 2 which is to say they can’t stop using it.
Please, make it an option.
If you have young children you can likely relate, if not you should really see the movie it’s quite funny.
But seriously. Can we get an option here?
I’d prefer not to repeatedly have dozens of blurry, pictures of the carpet, couch, floor, ceiling, siblings, goofy faces, all variety of inanimate objects and alas things which shall remain nameless streaming to all my other iDevices let alone getting shared on the big screen via Apple TV.
