Rewind recaps our favorite news from the week before. Curated each week by a different person from around the office, this week we hear from Nabile C., junior engineer of software design and development. Nabile also loves soccer and has been playing since he started walking. When he’s not writing code, he’s on the field, playing video games or racing RC cars.
We’ve all been disappointed with the new Apple Maps app released with iOS6. Leaked photos of a Google Maps app for the iPhone makes Forbes think that Google is hard at work on its maps for Apple devices. It’s also reported that the new app will integrate Google Earth and have better data management. I believe that most, if not all, iPhone users will be very pleased with this initiative.
Many drivers were astounded on Maple Street in Omaha’s Benson area on Saturday as they saw Zombies roaming everywhere. This was part of the fifth annual “Zombie Walk Omaha,” which is a benefit event for the Siena/Francis House shelter. Participants could get their faces painted and compete in a zombie costume contest. It was a good way for people to enjoy the day with their family and enjoy the warm weather before the snow. I have always been a big fan of zombie movies and I will make sure to be part of the event next year.
This Saturday Night Live sketch takes your iPhone5 consumer complaints into perspective. It’s really funny, and a must see!
The A/B testing library Clutch was acquired by Twitter last thursday and open-sourced on GitHub. I believe that Clutch.IO could become a much larger part of iOS development since it also helps develop faster, deploy instantly and run A/B tests. It’s definitely something to look into.
Even though handleOpenURL has been around for quite a while now, I find it necessary to talk about it here. HandleOpenURL is a great resource, which catalogues all, or at least most, of the third party URL schemes available on iOS. This is a great tool to share the capabilities of your apps and also learn from others. Great tool to check out.
