iOS Application Code Basics a Business Owner Should Know

A business person seems to be quite a busy person who is involved in putting efforts into various activities from generating cash flow, sales, financial, intellectual and physical capital that further fuels economic development and growth of his organization. Nowadays in business world, changes can be hard to predict as the world is changing with rapid pace than ever. Change has become a fundamental process in the present tech savvy world.

Business persons are making their best efforts to adapt the growing technology. Now a days the technology is exponentially growing in the mobile world so we have jotted down some coding basics a business person should know when he is looking out for iPhone app experts for development.

Basically there are two categories under which mobile application development can be done:

#Application Built for Performance

#Application built for Code Flexibility

Let’s discuss about the coding that is done for Optimal Performance of an Application.

Tip 1: Lessen the Use of Memory--
Don’t hold unnecessary objects in array or dictionary to hold data as the outcome of it is greater use of memory and degrading thereby degrading the overall performance off the App.

Tip 2: Re-usage of Object Allocation--

Reusing the objects that have been allocated so as to save time instead of creating it again and again. So as to minimize time, efforts and money.

Tip 3: Maximize Table & Collection View--

For a performance centric application we should maximize the usage of table view and the use of collection view. Focus should be given on performing re-usability of Table view & collection view.

Tip 4: Usage of Timer and location on necessity--

Timer and location if incorporated in an app drains the battery quite fast so its usage should be restricted and used as per necessity only.

Tip 5: Maximize use of threading--

We should maximize the use of threading in code while development of an iPhone application so as to enhance the speed of application.

Tip 6: X code Instruments Usage--

iOS applications should use X code instruments to find leakages and other necessary bugs so as to fix the issues in the code written for any application 7 even to enhance them.

Now Let’s throw some light on ios app that is built with a Flexible Code so that it may later on be added with more functionalities and services.

Tip 1: Usage of OOPS concept--

While developing an iOS application which is required to have a flexible code, we need to lay stress on usage of OOPS Concept (Object Oriented Programming Concept) though the platform for iOS development is objective which is already an Object oriented platform.

Tip 2: Usage of Design Pattern--
For a flexible code we must use design pattern which is a concept of programming in objective C.

Tip 3: Proper Optimization--
Proper optimized code should be written so that in future if any service or functionality is needed to be added upon the application may withstand it.

Tip 4: Re-usability of Classes, Database Handling & API Integration--
A flexible code should involve maximum reusing of codes, classes, data base handling and Application Program Interface throughout the codes of application.

Tip 5: Complexity & No. of lines--
The complexity of the application and number of lines written for an application should be proportionate so that the code remains flexible and it may not create any problematic scenario in the future while the application is under enhancement stage.

Its always better to decide whether or not your application may need enhancement in the future or not. So that it may give you an idea to whether ask your iOS Application developers to write code just for the performance of your application or to write code in such a manner that its flexible to withstand the functionality enhancement your application may provide to the users.
