Hey! | iOS Universal Short Messaging App Template (Swift)

Hey! | iOS Universal Short Messaging App Template (Swift)






Both iOS and Android versions can share the same database on back4app!

• Edited the Location Privacy Usage keys into Info.plist. 
So right-click on Info.plist in Xcode, Open As -> Source code, and replace the existing <key>NSLocation... rows with this code:
       <key>NSLocationAlwaysAndWhenInUseUsageDescription</key>
       <string>This app needs to access your current location to send heys!</string>
       <key>NSLocationWhenInUseUsageDescription</key>
       <string>This app needs to access your current location to send heys!</string>
       <key>NSLocationAlwaysUsageDescription</key>
       <string>This app needs to access your current location to send heys!</string>
       <key>NSLocationUsageDescription</key>
       <string>This app needs to access your current location to send heys!</string>

In this way, the Location permission alert will show up on devices with iOS versions older than iOS 11

Hey! is a Universal App Template where you can send short messages like hey! to all those friends who are registered in the app with just a tap. It’s that simple, the simplest communication app ever.
You can search for friends by name in the Search controller, add them to your Friends list and send them a hey!, attach a picture to it or your current location, or simple text of the selected hey!. They will receive a Push Notification and can easily reply to your “hey!” by sending it back.
Users are able to block/unblock other users, remove the from their list and make group of friends to send heys! all in once, again, with just a tap!
Check the video preview to see it in action.

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.

Hey! is a native XCode project, Swift language, Storyboard, Universal, super easy to customize, backend with Parse SDK hosted on https://back4app.com

Can I host Parse Server on my own server?

Yes, although I don’t provide support for the setup process, you can read the official Guide here: http://parseplatform.org

I get a Code signing error in Xcode 8.x

That’s a bug of Xcode 8 with macOS Sierra, check this sample video to see how to fix it: https://youtu.be/z2LemT1_LqA

How to remove AdMob banner ads

Check this video out to see how to remove the code that shows AdMob banners: https://youtu.be/e-HQYnta2Jg Keep in mind that you must repeat the shown steps for every .swift file that contains this line on the top:
import GoogleMobileAds

What about free support for this template?

I can offer free support for bugs encountered in the original code. Instead, if you’ve edited the code and messed something up with it, I may apply some fee to fix it either via TeamViewer or by checking your app project files directly on my computer.

Should I use the latest version of Xcode to edit this template?

Yes, I always update my apps to the latest version of the IDE.

    We’ve recently found out that some developers have bought our app templates, reskinned them just a bit and put them on sale on other source code markets similar to CodeCanyon, saying that they developed and own such source codes.
    That is a serious copyright infringement, developers who buy our templates are allowed to reskin and sell them as apps on the App Store (accordingly to the License type they’ve purchased a template for), but are not allowed to put our original source codes for sale on source code markets, including CodeCanyon. We will report developers who made copyright infringements to the competent authorities. Thanks.
