The wiring up of different components in my next program (now called simons-assistant) was getting annoying, so I wanted to try a Dependency Injection framework. No, it was far from necessary, but I also wanted to play more with such...

I added support for checking my Gmail account. If there are threads in the Inbox, it opens up Gmail so that I can clear it.

Yesterday I told you about next, the digital assistant. Today’s task will be to make it run a specific task on a specific interval.

This is the summer of micro-projects!

My post about Collection View Tetris was picked up as the “and finally…” entry by the ever-awesome news letter iOS Dev Weekly! Nice.

I’d like to tell the story of how exploring table view animations led me to this beautiful use of Xcode’s color literals.
A while back, I was investigating the animations in UITableView and UICollectionView. As you may be aware, in a...

The Bottom Drawer or Bottom Sheet is a user interface pattern that is used more and more on iOS, showing up in Apple’s own apps like Apple Music and Maps. But as of yet, there is no standard component for app developers to use. In this...
