Helpful iOS/Mac Developer Resources

If you’re new to iOS/Mac development (or even if you’re not), you might find these resources useful!

  1. Open Radar – a community bug report site where you can view and submit copies of bug reports that have already been sent to Apple
  2. QuickRadar – I just learned about this one from one of Craig Hockenberry’s tweets. QuickRadar is a free, open source Mac app that lives in your toolbar and allows you to quickly submit bug reports to Apple (and also Open Radar) without using their web interface.
  3. WWDC app for OS X – a really nice Mac app for viewing WWDC videos. You can also view session slides and read the transcripts. On the GitHub page, right below where it says “WWDC app for OS X,” choose “Click here to download the latest release” to download the app.
  4. Dash for OS X and iOS – Dash has a lot of neat features, but probably most useful is the ability to browse API docs offline. You can download the docsets for iOS, Swift, OS X, watchOS, tvOS, and over 150 other languages and APIs.
  5. Bjango App Icon Templates – if you’re going to make your own app icons, using a template can save you a lot of time.
