• Added 3D Touch code in AppDelegate.swift with 2 options (iPhone 6+/7+ only): Submit an Event and Share the app
Jan 20th 2016
• Updated to XCode 8.2.1
• Updated the User Guide
• Updated GoogleMobileAds.framework and its relative code
Nov 2nd 2016
• Updated to XCode 8.1
• Removed the 'contView' views since Apple has fixed the bug on ScrollViews with XCode 8.1
• Removed searchCityTxt from the searchView, it's not needed anymore wince we've improved the events search by setting up an array of keywords. 
• Edited submitEventButt() in SubmitEvent.swift and textFieldShouldReturn() in Home.swift

If this is an UPDATE for you, please do the following steps:
1. Enter your Parse Dashboard -> Events class and remove the "keywords" column. 
2. Create a new column of type Array and name it "keywords".
3. You now have to enter title and description of all your events into such column, field by field, as an array syntax with all lowercase words, so for example if your event has a title like "Big Event in London", and its description has something like "This is a very cool event", you have to enter this array into the 'keywords' field of that event:
We know it may be boring but it's the only way to update your app and make it able to improve search with multiple words in the Home screen. 
Anyway, after your update when users will submit an event the app will automatically create all the keywords, so the steps above are ONLY for the records already present in your Parse Dashboard.
If you've just bought the app, ignore the steps above.

• Changed Push notification system to back4app | Removed OneSignal
Sep 20th 2016
• Updated to Xcode 8
• We had to embed all the views that are in ScrollViews into a UIView called 'contView' in Storyboard, so the app will keep all layouts ok due to a bug of Xcode 8 on Autoresizing mask. 
You'll find this line of code into viewDidLoad() methods in the .swift files that have a ScrollView:
    contView.frame.size.width = view.frame.size.width
NOTE: Due to the bug on Xcode 8, every time you'll reopen your Xcode project, you will have to select those 'contView' UIViews and set their width to 320 by using the Size inspector panel on the right size

Events is a full app template for you to create your own mobile iOS app to store and share events all over the world. Users can submit new events to you and you can approve them by changing a value in the isPending field in your Parse Dashboard on back{4}app.

Since its backend is by Parse you don’t have to buy any domain/hosting, there are NO php files to upload to a web server so you’ll save some money for sever side. Worried about Parse shutting down? It won’t, please check this out:

You may also use the Adminca Panel as a great alternative to insert/edit data in your Parse Dashboard, after you’ll create your app on back4app, create a free account on and create a new Panel, choose self-hosted Parse server and paste your Host, Application ID and Master Key in the relative fields (you cam find them into Core Settings of your back4app panel)

Events has a button to automatically add an event on your native iOS Calendar app, open its address in Maps (to get directions) and share it on Facebook, Twitter or other apps installed on your device. It also checks if an event has ended by the date you’ll open up such event, showing you that it is passed.
It is written in Swift, easy to customize, native XCode project, Universal, Parse backend hosted on
