  • Posted to Flawless App — tool to compare original designs with developer’s implementation, Oct 11, 2017

    Been using this for check my designs on the iPhone X. Really neat that it works perfectly with Sketch files, and auto-detects all my Artboards. Love the switch and compare mechanism.

    Hi Aubrey, definitely going to make a major update for that soon! ;)

    I'm actually hoping to up my game in the video department. Now that I'm getting more comfortable with Cinema 4D and diving deeper into Screenflow, I'd like to bring more animations and transitions!

    Thanks Cole, Thomas and Raphael for report.

    Facepalms I can't believe I left the autoPlay on as I was trying to deal with the video bandwidth issue and pause() when open. :/

    This is embarrassing and I'm sorry. Thank god for Safari's blocking autoplay with non-muted videos. At the same time, if I used Chrome as a default browser, I'd have caught that firsthand...

    *Update: it's been fixed!

    You're actually the first person to mention about the header images. I was beginning to question myself if I chose correctly.

    Thanks Marc, receiving a thumbs up from you made my day, you have no idea.

  • Posted to or other resource for a designer curious on app-development?, in reply to Nye Yarrington , Nov 09, 2016

    I tried Cocoapods in an early version of the book (in the Objective-C days), but far too many readers were stuck at the installation process. Instead, I went on to create Spring, which only required users to drag and drop a folder. The framework would help beginners with simple tasks like simplified animations, back buttons, hex colors, etc that didn't come natively with Xcode.

    As for Firebase, to be fair, if I did include Parse at the time, it would be obsolete now. I think it's good to consider for the future. I'd like to avoid being reliant on a third-party tool. The book still cover useful topics such as APIs, delegates, NSUserDefaults (a way to store some data locally).

    I'm happy to answer the question regarding the Design+Code book (disclaimer: I'm the author).

    The book is constantly updated to the latest version of Swift (currently 3). The only part that's still being worked on is the videos, which should come out in the coming weeks. But you'll be surprised at how little the UI and code change for beginners. Plus, you get access to source files as well as images and text as you follow along.

    Man, you've come a long way from last year with no knowledge of Xcode to now releasing your own game! Crazy. Congrats!

  • Posted to Angle Android updated now includes 200+ Android & iOS vector device mockups for Sketch, Apr 05, 2016

    Thanks Kamil for sharing this. Really psyched to add 60+ Android device mockups to the Angle collection as a free upgrade.

    There are too few Android resources right now, so I'm happy to contribute to that! :D

    YES! I was hoping that someone asked this. I did some research and the only thing I found was a donut script which didn't exactly do what I wanted.

    The way I did it was a lot more straightforward: you create the donut in Sketch, export that to SVG and extract the code. Then, you take the dasharray="450,900"(The dasharray values are the same in Sketch's border options), animate it in CSS using transition. That's it!
