pure is a revolutionary, full-working template (UI + Source Code) that you may either hate or totally love!

Its concept and design are minimalist, both app and website allow users to make text-only posts on the homepage and chat in real-time in the public chatroom. There are no images, no GIFs, no videos, no comments, no likes, and no friends.
You can set any username, and messages sent in the chatroom are automatically deleted from the server after one day.

In the era of full-featured, busy social networks, this application can break their rules and attract people who just want to have fun and purely share their thoughts, quotes, whatever, without getting the distraction of comments, likes, followers, and all that stuff.

The package contains a web PHP version too, the included Documentation explains how to set up both the app and website.

The iOS, Android and Web version can share the same database on back4app!

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

• Check out the Features section below to see what this app does.
• Read the online Documentation to learn how to configure the template’s features and the database (Parse Dashboard).
• Keep an eye to the Change Log on the bottom of this page when an update gets released.


It’s backend is by Parse Server and it’s hosted on back4appNO MySQL database involved.
Parse Server is flexible, reliable, open source, based on Node.js and well supported by a large community of developers, and back4app is a great BaaS hosting website where you can configure your database, Push Notifications and other features in just a few clicks.

If you want to see a preview of the structure of the demo database, and also clone it in just a click, CLICK HERE!

If you want to use a nice Admin Panel to manage data of your database instead of using the Parse Dashboard, sign up for a FOREVER FREE account on and watch this video to see how to create a Panel for your Parse App.

iOS Swift language – Native Xcode project – Edit the template as you wish with the power of Xcode and Swift.

Storyboard, iOS 9.0 and above, Universal – Run your app on all iOS devices

Backend with Parse Server hosted on back4app – Built on a great and reliable BaaS that offers many features with just a few clicks, it’s super easy to create and set up a database on back4app, as well as edit the Parse Server’s SDK code.

PHP Web version included – Increase your audience by offering a website version of this template.

Post text-only content – Distraction-free application, no likes, photos, comments. Write pure text and be different.

Chat all together – You can enter the public chat room and communicate with anybody. Just don’t be offensive, people can report you and the Admin can remve you from the database.

Check/delete your own posts – You can view and edit your posts in the Account screen.

Report inappropriate content to the Admin – Users can help the Admin on keeping the app and website clean from abusive content The Admin must daily check the database and take action on reported stuff.

Terms of Use and Privacy Policy HTML file (GDPR compliant) – The template contains an HTML file the Admin can edit to display his Terms of Service to the app’s users.

AdMob Interstitial ads – Get some revenue from full-screen advertisement banners – mobile version only.

Modern, clean design – The UI has been carefully crafted to offer the best user experience to your clients.

Online Documentation – Read the extensive guide of this template to be able to configure it properly.

PSD icons included in the package – App and buttons icons are stored into a PSD folder, for easy image replacement.


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.

A free account on – You can create and edit your Parse App and database, get the necessary keys for configurations and test this template for free. It has limitations though, so please check the Pricing table and consider subscribing for a paid plan after your app got published on the App Store.

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 domain + hosting on GoDaddy – This template has been tested on GoDaddy, so this is the hosting provider that I strongly recommend you to use. DO NOT upload the file on or other free hosting providers!

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.

 Do not worry about it, just ignore those warnings - they aren't errors - and the app will still work perfectly and the design won't get messed up.

- Optimized the layout on iPad by adding an instance of 'UIDevice.current.userInterfaceIdiom' in the following files/functions:
1) Home.swift --> 'viewDidLoad()'
2) Chat.swift --> 'viewDidLoad()'

- Edited the Chat.swift, Home.swift, Account.swift and UserProfile.swift files by adding a 'callQuery()' function that resets the [PFObject] array, the 'skip' value, and calls the main query

** Compare your old .swift files with the updated ones to perform the code changes **

- Optimized the PHP code into a better syntax (I've changed a lot of code, ANYWAY: you may still keep the current version of your PHP files since I haven't added or took away any feature from the original template, it's just a code optimization).
** You should compare your old PHP files with the new ones, one by one if you want to perform this update **
