The Clinch iOS SDK supports iOS 8.x.


Manual Installation

  1. Copy the ClinchKit.framework to your Xcode project (you can get it from GitHub).

  2. Add ClinchKit.framework to the Embedded Binaries section in your application target. You’ll find Embedded Binaries in the General section of the target.

  3. Link to the following frameworks: CoreData

  4. If you plan on using the built-in iBeacons support, link to the CoreLocation framework.


Add the ClinchKit pod into your Podfile and run a pod install or pod update command.

    pod `ClinchKit`

Note: There is an issue with CocoaPods and dynamic binary frameworks; of which ClinchKit is one. (See and for more info).

Until this works, you’ll be better off using the manual installation method.

Initialize ClinchKit

You’ll need your ClinchKit app id and api key that can be requested from [email protected]. Once you’ve your keys, initialize ClinchKit by calling the following in your application’s delegate.

ClinchKit.setApiKey(key: "<#your_api_key#>")
ClinchKit.setApiSecret(secret: "<#your_api_secret#>")   

Sharing ClinchKit between extensions

If you’d like to share ClinchKit between your app and extensions (for example, a Today widget), then you’ll need to tell ClinchKit about your App Group Identifier (available from your Apple Developer Provisioning Center).

ClinchKit.setAppGroupIdentifier(appGroupIdentifier: "<#group.your_group_identifier#>")  

ClinchKit and Keychain

ClinchKit uses Keychain to securely store a users credentials, which are used to cryptographically sign each API call to ensure security. If you use ClinchKit between a few apps or between an app and extensions, you’ll need to set your Keychain Access Group, so that ClinchKit running in each app will be able to access your users credentials.

ClinchKit.setKeychainAccessGroup(accessGroup: "<#your_team_id.your_access_group#>")

Track potential candidates interaction with your app

In order to track potential candidates interaction with your app, you must first register them:

ClinchKit.registerUserWithEmail: <#emailAddress#>

or if you don’t know their email address, via a unique identifier:

ClinchKit.registerUserWithId: <#userId#>

Show Application Forms

To show an application form for your company (apply directly to company and not a specific job):

ClinchKit.showApplicationForm(job: nil)

To show an application form for a specific job in your company:

ClinchKit.showApplicationForm(job: '<#job_slug#>')

Push Notifications

ClinchKit supports push notifications to notify your users of important events, such as, new job positions. To register a device for push notifications, place the following in your didRegisterForRemoteNotificationsWithDeviceToken call in your application delegate:

ClinchKit.setDeviceToken(token: <#deviceToken#>)

iBeacons Support

ClinchKit supports iBeacon’s to attract candidates in a unique way from your mobile app users population. Beacons show up as a channel within your Clinch web console, where they can be configured.

To enable iBeacon support:



To set a branding tint color for ClinchKit UI components:

ClinchKit.setTintColor(color: <#UIColor#>)

To set a branding logo (max size: 300px x 300px):

ClinchKit.setLogo(logo: <#UIImage#>)


If you have any questions or queries, support is just an email (or in-app request) away at [email protected]
