Android and Apple Device Frame Generator

Android and Apple Device Frame Generator

Shortly I was looking for a frame generator where I can put in a screenshot from iPhone or iPad and then automatically a screenshot with the device's frame is created.

Something identically has already been existing for Android for a longer time, for iOS I needed to dig a little bit deeper, however after a couple of blog and stackoverflow postings I discovered two nice solutions for Apple and one that is already popular for Android.

The first solution for a Apple frame generator can be found directly on the Apple developer site, however the integration of the screenshot needs to be done with Photoshop. The second solution is straight forward and is not for Apple only, it is a Android frame generator too.

For Android device's only a frame generator can be found on the Android Asset Studio homepage a really nice place for discovering cool tools. A look onto this page is really worth seeing. 


cheers,

How to sniff iOS HTTP traffic

How to sniff iOS HTTP traffic

Sometimes it can be really interesting and helpful if there would be a chance to analyze and monitor the traffic of a potential iOS app. Maybe you just want to know what kind of services this app is using, maybe you want to take a closer look behind the scenes e.g. where does the app get its data from.

iPad4 a slap in community's face?

iPad4 a slap in community's face?

Besides the introduction of the iPad mini, Apple introduced the iPad 4th generation which was a little bit unexpected. Ok, Apple announced previously that in the end of the year there will be a new version of the iPad3 because there were some overheating problems and moreover the weight should be reduced. However on October 24th Apple presented the iPad4 with a "completely" new hardware. This step courts the Apple's community resentment and I can empathize with them. After only six month the iPad3 lost noticeable its high level of price. I hope Apple has one ace in the hole to calm the waves because in the last few months Apple had more publicity by bad news than with its great innovative products - the iPhone5 with weak hardware specifications is just chasing its competitors, iOS6 with its buggy map service was a big laugher and after that the quality of the iPhone left a lot to be desired. All this together is a noticeable disappointment in Apple's community – I personally count me into this community, however in the past months Apple started to annoy me with its decreasing quality of service, products and innovations.

iPad mini, a real competetion?

iPad mini, a real competetion?

This article exceptionally won't deal with the typical development stuff. As most of you already know, Apple has launched its iPad mini which should be a competition to smaller tablets like Asus Nexus 7. After the upsurge under the guru Steve Jobs, Apple's innovation motor starts more and more to stutter. In this article I want to present some of my personal opinion respective the iPad mini and if it can take the competition with tablets like the Asus Nexus 7.

iOS Image Manipulation - scale, move and rotate image

iOS Image Manipulation - scale, move and rotate image

A few weeks ago I've implemented a really interessting customer order, I really looked forward. For the new iOS app the customer needed a "photo theatre" component where the user can choose a so called coulisse. In this app a coulisse is an image e.g. a 80's haircut, animal costume etc. with a transparent area. Then the user can choose either a photo from the image gallery or he can take a photo with the camera. If both images are selected, he can move, scale and rotate the taken photo as long as it fits into the coulisse. If the user is satisfied with the result, he can save the image the app's gallery.

First I did some research because I had no idea how to implement the image manipulation by using the iOS SDK. So I found this really useful article from Roger Chapman that look perfectly for my problem.
