Deploying to Device
 Read deployment information at developer.apple.com
 4 Steps




Load intermediate certificate
Request development certificate
Send me device id to register
Use Xcode to deploy. It will use team provisioning
profile
 If you have problems, we will have a deployment session
after class.

Review of Vides 10-12
 Many of the slides to follow come directly
from the Fall 2011 Stanford CS193p slide
deck.
 Some come from earlier versions of CS193p
which I think were a bit clearer than the
current deck

Video 10 – Grand Central Dispatch
 UI should always be responsive
 Put time consuming tasks in a separate queue
 UI must run in main queue
 GCD – another example of Apple making a difficult task
quite easy
 Linear programming of multiple queues
 Rich interface with many complexities
 Most common scenario is quite simple
SEC - 10/3/12
COMP 446 / ELEC 446 - Week 7
15
Blocks Simplified
 A set of statements bracketed by { and } similar to a
method or if statement, Preceded by carat ^
^{
UIImage *image = [UIImage imageWithData:imageData];
self.imageView.image = image;
self.imageView.frame = CGRectMake(0, 0, image.size.width, image.size.height);
self.scrollView.contentSize = image.size;
}
 Method’s local variables stay in scope
 For the most part, can be treated like an object (typedef)
 NSArray methods for enumerating with blocks
SEC - 10/3/12
COMP 446 / ELEC 446 - Week 7
16
Grand Central Dispatch
 C API, more ()
 Runs different queues in separate threads
 Easy process
Create queue
 Dispatch queue with block
 Release queue
 Must keep UI in main threat
 Inside above queue, dispatch UI block within
separate block.
 This is all you will need for Assignment #5


GCD Memory Management Issues
 Avoid circular references to self as it will leak memory
 _ _ weak MyClass *weakSelf = self;
 Local variables declared in method before blocks still in
scope

Read only unless tagged with _ _ block
_ _ block BOOL stoppedEarly = NO;

Video 11 – Core Location / MapKit
 Two major frameworks that often go together
 Core Location and MapKit

MapKit is the heart of assignment #5
 Not part of default linking, but very easy to add
SEC - 10/3/12
COMP 446 / ELEC 446 - Week 7
19
Core Location
 Basic object is CLLocation
 @property
 coordinate
 altitude
 horizontalAccuracy / verticalAccuracy
 timestamp
 speed
 course
 Highly abstracted from backend processing
 Many automatic callbacks
SEC - 10/3/12

MapKit
 Base Element is MKMapView



Complete map in Class
Abstracts underlying technologies
Can be layered with other information
 Rich set of annotations
SEC - 10/3/12
COMP 446 / ELEC 446 - Week 7
21
MKAnnotation
 Drop Pins and configurable callouts
 Similar in many ways to UITableViewCell
 Can use standard MKAnnotationViews or
embellish with custom views

COMP 446 / ELEC 446 - Week 7
22
Video 12 – Persistence
 Multiple forms of persistence





Property Lists (such as NSUserDefaults)
Archiving Objects
Storing things in the file system
SQLite
Core Data
 Core Data is at the heart of Assignment #6 and very
important

Conceptually difficult, but way simplified from previous years.

iOS File System
 Each application has its own sandbox for protection
 Actual binary along with shipped resources in
application bundle directory - which is read only
 Copy prototype documents to documents directory
for modification
 Cache directory for recreatable objects
 Directory choice important for backup
 Watch lecture (short) even if not doing extra credit
 Core Data will use small part of this technology
