When Apple open-sourced Swift, developers saw a greater potential for the language than mere client-side iOS development. The community envisioned a language that could become more universal and cross-platform, evidenced by the emergence of server-side Swift powered by the Vapor Web Framework.
As part of Apple’s 2016 Word Wide Developers Conference Keynote, the company unveiled its latest iterations of four major operating system platforms, macOS ‘Sierra’ (the successor to OSX), iOS 10, tvOS and watchOS 3, each packed with a plethora of new features and improvements.
Using the open source CareKit framework, developers can create apps that help users monitor and manage medical conditions and their overall health, and then share that data with healthcare pros. Here we run through the CareKit modules and how the pieces fit together, using sample Swift code.
In this article we take a look at the features of LocationKit, a replacement library for iOS’ CLLocationManager and Android’s LocationManager. We explain how LocationKit can benefit location-aware mobile apps, and take you through the process of setting up and using LocationKit in your own app.
