IFAAppUI is a Cocoa Touch framework that helps you develop high quality iOS apps faster.

IFAAppUI has a dependency on the foundation provided by IFACoreUI. If you need enhanced API functionality that is safe to use by app extensions, then use IFACoreUI. IFAAppUI provides extra functionality on top of IFACoreUI that only apps can use (e.g. access to UIApplication).

Compatibility information:

IFAAppUI version Xcode version iOS deployment target Swift version
1.x 8.x 9.0 3.2
2.x 9.x 10.0 4.0

This framework has been used in a few projects for my clients.

The latest API documentation can be found here.

Additional documentation and sample code are coming soon.
