dubsmash

Unless you have been living under a rock for the past few months, its more than likely that you have heard of the video selfie/messaging app, Dubsmash. And if you’re like the other 20million+ people out there, you have it on your iPhone or Android phone already.

The New Selfie

Whether you are the self-appointed clown in your group of friends, or if you want to take your selfies to the next level, the Dubsmash app has become a social media and communication staple. A simple yet addictively fun concept, that rapidly blossomed into a viral sensation.

Why it works

The common desire to amuse and entertain our friends and loved ones mixed with a smidge of narcissism that most of us social media junkies (AKA everyone) seem to possess these days make this engaging little gem of an app for any age, all gender must have.

Making messaging fun

Sure, you can type “BRB”. But why do that when you can send a video of yourself saying “I’ll be back” in that unmistakable Arnold Schwarzenegger from The Terminator voice. That kind of effort, just shows you really care! Posting a video of your new puppy chewing up your slippers is sweet and all, but posting a video of yourself cuddling little Rover whilst saying, “Say hello to my little friend!” with an Al Pacino dub over, well that’s just epic!

Why didn’t I think of that?  

It’s probably fair to say that the developers of the Dubsmash app had virtually no idea the viral frenzy it would cause. As genius as this app is, it was by no means the most original idea to ever hit the scene.

It’s not like dubbing over had never been done before. In fact it’s been around long before apps or even the internet for that matter. Dubsmash merely took a long relished form of entertainment and made it into a user-friendly app available for the masses. Regardless of the simplicity of the concept, it has certainly paid off for the developers.

Make an app your own

App templates are great for adding any personal touch to your favourite apps. There are currently tons of app templates available at Chupamobile and acquiring your own app template gives you the freedom to recreate the app to your own personal taste. There are two app templates pretty similar to Dubsmash on Chupamobile, Dubsmix and Dubsfun, that give you the ability, to add, remove, or change features in order to tailor it to your own liking. The original idea may not be yours, but the tweaked up improved version you can build from an app template will be all your own!

If you want to hop on the Dub related apps train, then don’t hesitate to take a look at the templates on Chupamobile, so you can create your very own version!

Bonus: Some funny Dubsmash videos

Enjoy!

watchkit glances notifications essentials

With the imminent release of Apple Watch later today (watch in streaming the Spring Forward event), it’s the moment to get our apps ready to be compatible with this amazing device.

As we saw in our first post of this series, a WatchKit application consists in two different ways to display content:

  • glances
  • notifications

watchkit glances notificationsSo, let’s goo deeper on Watchkit Glances and Notifications and see which peculiarities has each of them.

Glances

A glance is a way to show important information of our app to the user. For example, if we have an event ticket stored in Passbook, the glance will show it when we are close enough to the venue.

It’s important to know that an app doesn’t need to count with a glance mandatorily, we can make use of them to improve the user experience, and it’s delivered in both WatchKit app and in the WatchKit extension.

The interface for the glances are stored in the storyboard of the WatchKit app and you will need to create a WKInterfaceController to handle its behavior. The only interaction supported by a glance is tapping, this way when the user taps on the glance, it will launch the WatchKit app.

To interact quickly, the glance’s interface controller is initialized earlier than other controllers. However is a good exercise to perform checks in the willActivate method to ensure that the information displayed is updated.

apple-watch-glances-notifications-example

Notifications

When interacting with WatchKit apps there are two types of notifications the user can receive: local (to the iPhone) and remote (to the Apple Watch).

When a notification arrives to the iPhone, iOS is responsible of displaying it whether on the iPhone or on the Apple Watch. In case of a notification sent to the Apple Watch, the device warns the user and if he or she decides to check it, the app will show a summary version (also called short-look) of the notification followed by an extended view (long-look) of the same.

Short-look

The short-looks shows a string which should be populated by using the alertTitle property of the UILocalNotification instance for local notifications, while you will need to specify the tittle key to the alert dictionary in the input payload of the didReceiveRemoteNotification:withCompletion method for remote notifications.

Long-look

If the user keeps looking at the notification, the app will show the long-look interface. In this case we will need to pass other values to didReceiveRemoteNotification:withCompletion such as the sash color (the color specified for the top header of the notification), the category and the rest of information we want to display.

Creating and managing buttons

If we want to show buttons in our notifications we will need to specify its category in a UIUserNotificationSettings. Depending on this value the Apple Watch will add the related buttons to the long-look interface.

In order to respond to a tap on a button, the app makes use of the information included in the UIUserNotificationAction instance. The actions triggered by the tap could be processed in the background or in the foreground.

In case of background actions, it launches the iOS app in the background to perform the action. The information to process it is provided thanks to application:handleActionWithIdentifier:forRemoteNotification:completionHandler or application:handleActionWithIdentifier:forLocalNotification:completionHandler method of the interface controller.

In case of foreground actions, the WatchKit app is launched and receives the button identifier through handleActionWithIdentifier:forRemoteNotification or  handleActionWithIdentifier:forLocalNotification method of the interface controller.

We are preparing some other posts about developing WatchKit apps but in the mean time we would like to know how is your experience with this kind of applications going. Are you enjoying it as we are?

unity-5-launch-the-blacksmith

They have just announced it at the 2015 Game Developers Conference in San Francisco: Unity 5 game engine is now available globally for all game developers out there. That’s exciting news for devs but also for gamers and app entrepreneurs.

Some of the new features introduced by Unity Technologies in this new version will notably change the 3D gaming panorama and allow indie developers and agencies make even more realistic games. The engine update contains “massive graphics improvements and an expanded editor feature set.” Graphically, the engine now has physically based shading, “real-time global illumination with Enlighten, and reflection probes.”

On the conference they also announced their partnership with Oculus;

… and the Unity Cloud Build, which it says will enable developers to increase their productivity by “leveraging the power of cloud computing.”

With this new release, Unity affirms its position as the leading multiplatform game development engine. Unity 5 supports 21 different platforms, including of course iOS and Android.

Let’s see now some of the first impressions of the indiedev community about the news just announced:

CEO John Riccitiello explained they want everyone to have access to Unity 5 “which is why we’ve increased the value of our royalty-free licenses.” The professional version ($75) of Unity 5 includes Unity Cloud Build Pro and Team License, while the personal one offers the engine free of charge.

You can download Unity 5 for free from Unity’s site.

But… what I liked the most of the whole conference was to see it in action! The short film The Blacksmith made in Unity 5 is simply amazing. Check it out below:
