Google used to publish Apps almost instantly, no quality review whatsoever, as result, the Google Play Store was full of garbage. Crappy Apps, malicious Apps and overall useless Apps were rampant. Several scandals and privacy breaches after, Google said, no more… “We will review the Apps and ensure some quality across the board”, (turns out that, although criticized, Apple was right, all the time).
It’s sometime confusing for new developers
(or rather new Watch iOS developers) to find exactly where to set the Watch
Icons. Well… it’s actually pretty simple.
It may be a bit unclear, because if you use a standard XCode template App, you may find two Assets.xcassets. The first would be under the WatchKit App and the second one under the Watch Kit Extension, usually where you insert your code logic.
Submissions for mobile apps for iOS are subject to approval by Apple’s App Review team, as outlined in the SDK agreement, for basic reliability testing and other analysis, before being published on the App Store.
Applications may still be distributed ad hoc if they are rejected, by the author manually submitting a request to Apple to license the application to individual iPhones, although Apple may withdraw the ability for authors to do this at a later date.
where Swift is overtaking Objective-C rapidly and the momentum is clear. In the
Android world, presently, the language option is not that clear.
Yes, Kotlin is
there, new, coming forward, garden-fresh, 21-century ready but it isn’t ultimately
taking off, not as expected.
Kotlin was first
introduced by JetBrains in 2011, which is the creator of IntelliJ IDEA,
PyCharm, and many other top IDEs. It got its name from ‘Kotlin Island’ in St.
Petersburg, Russia. Made to strike Java.
That said, the
dominance of Java is still immense, the number of libraries, APIs, code
generally speaking is humongous. Not to mention the readability of it, the many
algorithms and things done or thought already in Java, yeah… Simple as it
sounds, it’s hard to break a solid present for a “uncertain” bright future.
