iOS – Data Leakage: App background cache

Today I want to share a simple way to retrieve user data from a native iOS cache image, automatically generated when your app goes in background.

You can retrieve this kind of informations if your phone was lost or Jailbreaked or connecting it to your pc and open an old backup. You can use tools like iBackup Viewer and more…

Let’s see how it works!

Swift – Push UIView animation

Simple code snippet today that show how to push a UIView and obtain the same effect of a UINavigationController as push action, choosing also the side (.fromLeft / .fromRight).

We can do this using the CATransitionanimations. Very simple:

func push( view: UIView, side: CATransitionSubtype = .fromRight ) {
    let transition = CATransition()
    transition.type = CATransitionType.push
    transition.subtype = side

    self.layer.add(transition, forKey: nil)
    self.addSubview(view)
}

Enjoy pushing!

Send data between Apple devices (iPhone/iPad/macOS) using Multipeer Connectivity

Today I want to introduce an Apple framework, called Multipeer Connectivity.

“The Multipeer Connectivity framework supports the discovery of services provided by nearby devices and supports communicating with those services through message-based data, streaming data, and resources (such as files). In iOS, the framework uses infrastructure Wi-Fi networks, peer-to-peer Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth personal area networks for the underlying transport. In macOS and tvOS, it uses infrastructure Wi-Fi, peer-to-peer Wi-Fi, and Ethernet.”
