iOS Sample App for Kii Cloud: MyPix
Our team has just released a new iOS sample app (complete with open-source code) entitled MyPix
MyPix is a bare-bones sample application that shows you how to create a user account then upload and browse pictures within that account. Pictures are available across devices, and this sample can easily be extended with social layers, sharing, and better UX to become a full-fledged photo application.
MyPix is built on top of Kii Cloud so you don’t need to do any backend setup or coding, you can just plug in the easy-to-use Kii SDK and you’re up and running!
MyPix also utilizes the open-source KiiToolkit library for even faster development. This provides a tableview, imageview and login view that plug directly into Kii Cloud – allowing us to create this entire app in a single class with around 100 lines of code!
If you want to get up and running quickly, simply:
Here are a few ideas to get the ideas flowing for where you can take this sample app:
- Photo ‘detail’ view. Tap a photo in the stream to view a full-size image
- Cache images to disk for faster loading
- Share photos publicly via email or SMS (see a hint here)
- Connect with friends in the app
If you’d like to learn more or contribute, head over to our GitHub project page.
This is a great way to get your new photo app up and running even faster with Kii Cloud, so have fun building and let us know what you think!
