• Updated to Xcode 9.3
 Fixed the "Block implicitly retains 'self'; explicitly mention 'self' to indicate this is intended behavior" warning in Xcode 9 by placing "self->" to all instances highlighed by Xcode 9.3

• Since UIDocumentInteractionController is no longer supported in iOS 11.x, I've replace its code with a UIActivityController one in the "(void)savePic" method in the ViewController.m file. 
• Added this line on the top of ViewController.m:
    #import <Photos/Photos.h>
• Removed the "(void)checkingInstalledApp" method


Apply great effects on your photos with PIXL, a full app template with a built-in custom image editor (NO Aviary SDK), which is easy to customize for icons and default images. It also has a customizable Camera built with the AVFoundation framework.
Load photos from your Photo Library or take a picture with the Camera and start editing them the way you like! And when you’re done with your edited image, share it on social apps installed on your device, Mail, and SMS.

PIXL is written in Objective-C, native XCode project, easy to customize, well commented code.
