RSS App Template
The RSS app template (Xcode project) is an app skeleton that will help you build a Blog or RSS Reader app easily and quickly. The template is completely written in Swift. It supports Xcode 8 and iOS 8 (or up).
This app template should save you thousands of dollars. To build a similar app like this, it will cost you over $5000 to hire an iOS developer. Even if you know Swift or Objective-C, the app template will save you 100+ hours from building the app from scratch.
With the built-in RSS parser, you just need to add your own RSS feed in a configuration file and can easily turn the template into a blog reader app.
Three beautiful themes included (more are coming). You just need to set a parameter in the configuration file to choose your preferred theme. With a few tweaks, you'll have an app with your own design.
This is the beginner package of the RSS App Template. You're allowed to use the app template in your personal project to build and release one app to the App Store.
To learn more about the app template, check out the official website:
Subscription App Template
*** To be available in late December ***
Want to keep track of your subscription spendings? This app template is designed for this purpose. We apply MVVM design pattern to build this app. By go through the source code of this app project, you will learn how to apply it to your own project.
iOS App Screenshot Design Guide & Resources for Developers
*** The design guide will be available in late Oct ***
Writing code is just one of the steps of developing an App. Except designing App interface in the earlier stage, you will need a few beautiful screenshots for submitting the app to App Store. Standard screenshots can already satisfy the requirements of App Store, but beautiful screenshots are definitely more attractive to users.
For developers, how can you ignore the screenshots design when having a beautiful screenshot can boost the download of your App?
You can hire a designer to help you. But what if you are looking for a low-cost option. This design guide and the resource sheet will show you how to create high-quality mockup and screenshots to market your app.
