iOS 10 adoption is growing, now it’s close to 40% (30% past week). iOS 9 is 55% now and iOS 8… well it’s in summarized “Older” now.

I’m still waiting for my Apple Watch Series 2. Want to check how SpriteKit works there šŸ™ƒĀ and SceneKit?

This week Dynamo will host meetup for iOS developers. I’ll talk about animations in iOS, hope that we will have videos šŸ˜¬

Updating NSURLSession calls to Swift 3.0. Seems like automatic conversion of projects from Swift 2.3 to 3.0 doesn’t work well? I wonder if anyone got any help with this. I converted 3 projects and it was quite painful, because NS* classes not only missed NS prefix, but also API changed. Some functions now through exceptions and it’s not handled by migration tool in XCode.

  1. Instead of this “Colorblinds” library, ask a real color blind like me ;) They also forgot the tritanopia! I am a bit of the three, so please don’t ask me what colour is your jacket or we will have a serious discussion :)

    1. Hahaha. ok :)

      I read research paper a year ago about colour blind people and it should be around 10% of the mankind. It seems like it shouldn’t be hard to find someone with different color perception, but…

      btw. Do you use color filters in mobile devices to adjust what do you see on a screen?

      1. This was a nice feature I never heard about! For those who don’t know: Settings->General->Accessibility->Display accommodation->Color filters and then the magic starts by switching the filters on.
        Nice feature to know about but that may not solve all problems: in my case I’ve always had troubles with colored curves in graphs or other smaller details where not enough color is available to assess the color.
        I have tried this feature with the Ishihara color vision tests at this address: http://colorvisiontesting.com/ishihara.htm and improved my results from 1/8 without filters to 8/8 with filter red/green at max intensity!! Definitely have to investigate more about this but glad I can see those bloody figures now!!
