I’ve mentioned some libraries for the use of the iconic Fontawesome within apps such as this library allowing you to create flat buttons with Fontawesome icons.

Here’s a library called Ionicons-iOS from TapTemplate that enables easy use of the Ionicons open source font within iOS apps.

The nice thing about the Ionicons font is that it contains many different iOS 7 system icons and using Ionicons iOS presents you with a number of new ways to use the icons along with size and color customization options and compatibility with iOS 5+.

With Ionicons-iOS you can use IonIcons as a UIFont, as a UILabel, and as a UIImage.

A snapshot from the Ionicons homepage showing some of the available icons:

You can find Ionicons-iOS on Github here.

You can find the Ionicons font over on the homepage.

A very nice library, and a nice iconic font.

Not too long ago I mentioned a handy UIColor category providing easy access to colors within the iOS 7 color palette by name.

Here are a couple of libraries from Zack Brown providing an add-on category for UIColor allowing you to pick and chose colors using the Crayola color names, and Pantone color values.

A snapshot from the UIColor-Crayola page showing some of the available colors:UIColor-Crayola

You can find UIColor-Crayola on Github here, and UIColor-Pantone on Github here.

Handy libraries for finding just the right color within your iOS apps.

Open Source Component Providing A UIDatePicker That Is Presented In A UIActionSheet Manner http://appdevdigest.com/open-source-component-providing-a-uidatepicker-that-is-presented-in-a-uiactionsheet-manner http://appdevdigest.com/open-source-component-providing-a-uidatepicker-that-is-presented-in-a-uiactionsheet-manner#comments Sat, 02 Nov 2013 23:49:44 +0000 Lynn Burns http://appdevdigest.com/open-source-component-providing-a-uidatepicker-that-is-presented-in-a-uiactionsheet-manner Post Category    iOS UI Controls,iPad,iPhone,Objective-C

The date picker is one of those controls that you’ll often find yourself wanting to place within other views such as action sheets, and popovers, but there are complications.

Here’s a nice custom component from Roland Moers called RMDateSelectionViewController that allows you to present a UIDatePicker that slides out in a UIActionSheet style.

Included are methods for easily showing and dismissing the action sheet with date picker, you can control exactly which view controller the date picker is shown from (so it could be a view other than an action sheet like a popover), and the date picker adjusts automatically for the right orientation.

Here’s an image showing the RMDateSelectionViewController demo in action:
RMDateSelectionViewController

You can find RMDateSelectionViewController on Github here.

A handy date picker component with a great deal of versatility.

How to Develop Android Database Applications in RAD Studio XE5 http://appdevdigest.com/how-to-develop-android-database-applications-in-rad-studio-xe5 http://appdevdigest.com/how-to-develop-android-database-applications-in-rad-studio-xe5#comments Sat, 02 Nov 2013 20:50:59 +0000 Linda Bates http://appdevdigest.com/how-to-develop-android-database-applications-in-rad-studio-xe5 to development of database applications, it becomes much more difficult. The point is that the components and drivers included in the RAD Studio XE5 distribution (for example, FireDAC and dbExpress drivers) have severe limitations: on Android and iOS platforms, they support just 2 databases — SQLite and InterBase. And what to do when you develop a serious business-application, that requires remote connection to Oracle, MySQL or PostgreSQL from Android?
