Jan 15th 2017 ** MAJOR UPDATE ** • Added Messages.swift and Inbox.swift files, and their relative Controllers in the Storyboard • Edited Intro.swift and SignUp.swift in order to save an Array in the Parse dashboard -> User class. This Array is called 'hasBlocked' and it's needed for blocking/unblocking users in the chats • Added a 'messageButt()' in the OtherUserProfile controller and its relative code in OtherUserProfile.swift • Added a few strings in Configs.swift relative to the Messages and Inbox new classes for your Parse Dashboard IMPORTANT: IF THIS IS AN UPDATE FOR YOU, you must first update your Xcode project by comparing the files mentioned above with your old ones and update them, then you need to run the app and Sign Up as a test user, so the app will create a new column in the User class called 'hasBlocked'. Then enter your Parse Dashboard -> User class and find that new column, you'll see that all its cells show 'undefined' inside, so just type  in all cells in order to initialize an empty array and avoid the app from crashing. After that, you'll be able to test the chats and publish your update to the App Store.
Jan 4th 2018 • Edited the 'imagePickerController()' method in AddStream.swift by qadding the following line: // Convert video convertVideoToMp4() • Added a 'convertVideoToMp4()' method in AddStream.swift that converts videos into .mp4 format (for Android version compatibility)
Dec 29th 2018 • First release | Xcode 9.x | iOS 8.0+ • Backend with Parse SDK hosted on https://back4app.com
MyStream is an app template where you can post anything you would like to show to the world, like pictures, videos, audio recordings, and stickers, as well as any text you want.
Users can comment, like and share Streams, as well as report them and their Users to the Admin. You, as the Admin of the app, need to daily check your own Parse Dashboard for reported content or users and take actions 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.
MyStream is a native Xcode project, Swift language, Universal, Parse SDK hosted on http://back4app.com, super easy to customize.

Important Disclaimer: 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.
