Requirements

The latest official version of Xcode – Beta versions of an IDE usually never work 100% properly, and the code of this app has been written using the latest official version of Xcode and you can download it from the Mac App Store. You must use it and avoid Betas.

An Apple Mac computer, updated to its latest OS version – It’s always good to keep your macOS up to date, technology keeps growing and I follow its changes, as well as updating my templates every time a new OS gets released.

An Apple Developer Account with an active iOS Development Program – This is needed for you to publish apps on the iTunes App Store. You can still edit this template on code without that account, but you won’t be able to run it on your real iOS device since you’ll need a Team ID.

Basic knowledge of Xcode and Swift language – You don’t need to be a skilled or professional developer, anyway it’s recommended to have at least the basic knowledge of what you’re dealing with, in order to be able to customize this template and publish your applications on the App Store.

DBase open-source API – Host DBase into your own VPS server (AWS Lightsail is strongly recommended)

An active AdMob account – Unless you want to remove ads in this app, you need to sign up for an AdMob account to display them.

A real device to test the app before submitting it to the App Store – iOS Simulators may fail during tests, they are not reliable as a real device is, so I strongly recommend you to always run this application on a real phone/tablet. This is also suggested by Apple’s official Guidelines.

- Updated to XCode 13.2.1
- Changed backend and SDK to the DBase open-source API -> https://github.com/frankeno/dbase

/* IF THIS IS AN UPDATE FOR YOU: This new backend is an evolved version of the previous one, so you can backup your current JSON files and 'uploads' folder, install DBase in your VPS server, and upload those files  **
