Custom Dynamic AlertView


Last week I was part of the third Ironhack bootcamp. It was as good as always and the new ironhackers were so motivated! Good luck to all of them from here.

Whilst reviewing UIKit Dynamics, we made a brief class using this funny framework. Find here the code.

Thoughts for iOS


We are pleased to introduce Thoughts, Produkt’s first iOS own app.

We have faced (and still are) some major technical challenges along the way: we are trying to do something that we initially thought that it wasn’t even technically feasible. However, working along with Hugo and Dani couldn’t be better, and I have enjoyed developing every aspect of it. I am very proud of being part of this team.

If you would like to try the beta version, you can sign up here

We are hoping to send the first stable version very soon, and we would love to hear your thoughts.

Many thanks in advance!

Produkt Studio LTD


As I mentioned in one on my previous posts, I had the opportunity to be involved in a great project, minube, where I had the honour of working with Dani. He is one of the best iOS developers I have ever met and, on top of that, an amazing guy.

Soon after the project terminated, we decided to partner together and build a software development studio focused on iOS, Produkt. Dani, thanks to Ricardo, already had the brand & the design, the website, the contacts… I loved the name – the engineering feeling that is associated with it makes me feel at home.

VBFJellyView tutorial

It’s been a while since my last post!
This month has been crazy. I went to Madrid to teach iOS 3 days (UIViews, CoreGraphics and Layers) at ironhack. It was amazing, everyone was really nice and I enjoyed it a lot.
Also I have joined minube iOS team to help them develop a new version of their app. It is a very exciting project, and it is a pleasure to work with such talented guys!

Today I am here to talk about this pretty funny little thing.
I call it: ‘The Jelly View’

Pop Playground: playing with Facebook’s framework

Hi guys,

I have recorded a new screencast (in english… sorry if sometimes I struggle) talking about Pop (Facebook pop).

For the screencast I have prepared a project with 3 main tabs:

1) Basic explanation about pop with simple animations
2) 8 examples using different pop animations with many different animatable properties
3) 2 custon UIControls (unfinished). The only thing I have implemented are the animations.

These are the 2 controls you will find in the project:



Find the Github project here: PopPlayground

Finally, all the icons are from Captain Icon, you can grab them for free here

Snippet: screen snapshot

I have just found this piece of code, great for having in your snippet library. Quick and easy way of doing a screenshot.

After doing this, you can combine it with UIImage+ImageEffects for a nice blur effect.
