• 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>NSLocationAlwaysAndWhenInUseUsageDescription</key>
        <string>This app wants to access your current location to display cities distance</string>
        <key>NSLocationWhenInUseUsageDescription</key>
        <string>This app wants to access your current location to display cities distance</string>
        <key>NSLocationAlwaysUsageDescription</key>
        <string>This app wants to access your current location to display cities distance</string>
        <key>NSLocationUsageDescription</key>
        <string>This app wants to access your current location to display cities distance</string>

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

Journey is a Universal App Template where users can post and browse reviews for cities they have visited. Reviews include star ratings, text and 1 optional picture as an attachment, it may be the particular place they have been amazed by, for example, a user visited New York and got impressed by the Statue of Liberty, he can write a review about New York and attach the photo of the statue he took there.

You, as the Admin of the app, will have to insert the cities in your own Parse Dashboard and they will get displayed in the Home screen and Search screens. The Home screen shows the 20 most rated cities, the Search controller allows users to search for a popular city and write/browse reviews about it
Users can also report inappropriate content in the review’s detail screen. You, as the Admin of the app, should daily check for reported reviews and take action for them.

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 server side.

You may also use the Adminca.com, a free CMS panel for Parse SDK 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 http://adminca.com and create a new Panel, choose Self-hosted Parse Server and paste your Host link, Application ID and Master Key in the relative fields (you can find them into Core Settings of your back4app dashboard)



Journey 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?

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.
