I suppose this indeed would fall under an "ebook reader" type of app. I tried to upload a sample image and paste the concept of the layout but it wasn't rendered too well.
In essence, there would be a screen where the user would enter an ID# pertaining to an item, a shipping description or a class number.
After hitting "Ok" the results page would display the shipping instructions for the item entered in the first page, limitations(weight, quantity, dimensions), and a sample image.
I will start by looking into ebook reader templates that closely resemble what I need.
I like the idea of the camera application, but that is not what I need. Perhaps I can incorporate that in a different app.
With respect to "whether you just want to read the text or what", I simply want the app for the user to read.
It's basically a logistics regulations guideline book where instead of reading it, I need the users to enter one of 3 values(or all 3) in the main screen which brings up the results page/screen with dimensions, limitations, image of type of hazard. I thought for a moment a dictionary concept would be idea, but perhaps there is something that better suites me.
It turns out you can't open a file under the lock screen, this is a security feature.
However you can open it before that and keep the handle to the already opened stream, it works.
In my case, what I am really doing is using a permanently open single SQLite connection and it's all working now.
I also wrote a method AsyncAcquire() that makes sure only one method at a time is using the connection.
Here, at work, I am working on an app which (attempt to) track user location in the background.
(Using C# and Xamarin / MonoTouch)
I tried to enable background tracking with the 3 following steps: 1. I updated the info.plist to have: BackgroundMode-On (Location Update, Background Fetch) 2. in my AppDelegate, call UIApplication.SharedApplication.SetMinimumBackgroundFetchInterval(Interval.TotalSeconds); 3. Also register location change with location manager:
static CLLocationManager LocMgr = new CLLocationManager();
LocMgr.LocationsUpdated += LocationsUpdated;
However, despite all of that, in a whole night I only get 10 update (Interval is set to 1 minute!!!)
And I also went for a 10 minutes walk and I didn't get a single update!
I would like to write a small app that acts as a front end to FaceTime on an iPad. It would limit the user to calling a single pre-configured number, so the iPad could be used as a dedicated communication terminal in a small remote sales location. My searches so far have not been positive. Is this possible?
Sarcasm - it's not just a verbal skill - it's a lifestyle!
I want to use Google map speech navigation in my app. But i am not able to find out anything regarding that. I checked out many thing in google but none provide me the thing i require. Is their anyway i can use google map speech navigation in iOS without Google map Application in device. I need to use navigation in my app only notin google map.
Thanks in advance friends
A large part of this will of course depend on the content of UIView and what exactly you are trying to achieve. To better help you might want to improve your question with an example of what you are doing and where you are stuck.
If you just need to get started then maybe the following will help:
