Day 4 (Monday) [iOS]
Generating and storing UUID on iPhone, so it can be sent as a mandatory parameter when submitting a photo.
Capturing GPS location for the same reason, will add the location parameter to submitting a photo.
So, it's finally beginning to take shape. Here is how Screen #1 looks like:
I'm actually beginning to like it. It's very simple. And it works! Let's see if I can make few simple tweaks and hopefully submit to iTunes by the end of day.
Added pull to refresh.
Added the detailed photo view (Screen #2):
The delete functionality works via API call:
The portrait and landscape modes work out of the box:
So, I definitely could not have been happier about all this. Only 2 screens, just like I envisioned, yet, seems to be self-complete, and, if many people start to use it -- will be fun.
The next challenge, packaging it up and submitting to iTunes. I recently renewed my Apple developer license for $100, which is ridiculous, but, it's another one of those Apple rules we just have to abide to. And I'm most 100% sure they will reject my little nice app on the first try, just because they always do. Most likely they will complain about inability to report the user content and the users. I hope that deleting the photos from the feed will do the trick. Not even sure it made sense to implement the deletion, since the images will be gone in 24 hours anyways, but, again, let's try to please Apple, or else, the app will never see the light of day.
Spent 4 hours this evening preparing the app for submission to the iTunes App Store. For a company like Apple, the submission process is a shame. It's very buggy. Very confusing. Very inefficient. The UX is totally not there.
Finally was able to upload a build. Waiting for 2 hours, the build never shows up in the store. At this point I have no idea if this is a problem with my app or the App Store is broken. Will have to continue tomorrow, perhaps it will settle in over night.
