Pikky is a great solution for those who need to quickly make a mobile app similar to Instagram, to post pictures and videos and build a nice community of media lovers, influencers or just funny people


Pikky is a full-working template (UI + Source Code) for sharing pictures and videos to the world, and find cool people to get in touch with.

Users can like, comment, and share posts on social networks, Mail, and SMS.
They can also edit their own profile, block inappropriate users, mute posts, turn comments off, and much more.

The Admin should daily check the database for reported content/users, and take action for it.

The design is clean, code is commented and project folders and files are well organized in the package.

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 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.
