iOS Xcode Starter Project

An iOS Starter Project configured for unit/functional testing and analytics that we use to start our projects at Two Bit Labs


  • ARC enabled with Storyboards
  • Universal app to support both iPhone and iPad (but easy to disable one or the other)
  • A sensible Xcode .gitignore file that works well for multi-person teams
  • Libraries are includes as git submodules so you can pull in the latest versions
  • AnalyticsKit to support optional integration of analytics providers like TestFlight, Flurry, Apsalar, Localytics, etc... Only the TestFlight SDK is included by default.
  • Specta, Expecta, and OCMock to support TDD and BDD style iOS Development with Mock objects
  • Example test/spec files to show you how to get started testing
  • Seperate unit test and functional test target to separate out fast running tests from slow running tests
  • MagicalRecord which makes working with Core Data enjoyable
  • Development, Debug, and Release configurations (with support for multiple app id's) so you can install both the developemnt and release versions of the app on your devices side by side
  • An NSURLCache configured with sensible memory defaults
  • Code that triggers periodic memory warnings in the simulator so your app behaves more like it does on device
  • A customized user agent string for UIWebViews
  • An app delegate method to enable and disable the network activity indicator that counts the number of callers so it doesn't become disabled until the last caller disables it
