iPhone app submission software requirements

Installing new and old versions of Xcode

So I saw this post: http://mobiledevelopertips.com/xcode/download-and-install-older-versions-of-xcode-xcode-previous-releases.html about downloading older versions of Xcode. Up to now, I have always just downloaded the newest version of Xcode from the App Store and let it do its thing. Recently on one computer that has Xcode 4.5 installed on it, I noticed that if I create a new project, […]

I want to return to my storyboard’s initial viewcontroller after X time of user inactivity (no touch events fired). After some research I see that the most common way of detecting inactivity is to fire an NSTimer and reset the interval when an event is fired. To detect a fired event, we override [UIApplication sentEvent:] […]

Connect to MySQL directly from an iPad app (not via PHP, etc.)

Before anyone has a chance: Yes, i know it’s a bad idea. Please, don’t give me a lecture on how i should use a web service instead. Thanks. So, how could this be done? I found this bit http://www.karlkraft.com/index.php/2010/09/17/mysql-for-iphone-and-osx/ and thought it might do the trick. I got a bunch of ARC error messages, cleaned […]

Remove ability for portrait orientation for app in iPhone SDK

Is there a way where I can only allow my app viewable in landscape mode? I’ve managed to default the application’s orientation to landscape, however in the iPad simulator, when I do Command->Arrow, the application rotates to portrait. I’ve removed the listings in the plist under “Supported interface orientations” for both of the Portrait entries, […]
