I’m mainly a backend developer guy and I don’t like spent time on frontend and interfaces. I also don’t have many skills in design and UI, so I usually delegate this part of work to other colleagues that are graphics designer or frontend developer. But when in my career I had to work on WinForms to create a Windows application for my customers, I needed to find a quick solution.

I found different frameworks made for WinForms to make it easy for developers to create UI interface with just a few clicks and I tested all of them.

Today I will talk about Bunifu Framework and we will create together a basic weather application to test some controls of this powerful library. …

UserDefaults, available since iOS 2.0, provides an interface to store persisted values as long as the app is installed. UserDefaults is similar to a database. It can be used as a convenient way to save a small amount of data available, even you close the app and relaunch it. If you need to store big data or access it with a complex query, you probably need to use SQLite or Core Data.

Like all of the iOS apps that run in a closed sandbox, an app can’t modify UserDefaults from any other app — except for through the app extension.

You can find more information in the official documentation. …

App Extensions, introduced on iOS 8, give users access to your app’s features in other apps through iOS. For example, you can add your app to the Today screen and add a new action on an action sheet, create a new custom keyboard, or add a Siri command that users can use to make actions with voice control.

Right now iOS supports the following extensions: share, today, photo editing, custom keyboard, file provider, actions, document provider, finder sync, and audio.

Getting Started

First, open Xcode and create a new project. Select Single View App.
