All the new features of SwiftyLaunch 1.2


Just one month ago, we have released SwiftyLaunch. This update is a thank you to everyone who has supported us and provided valuable feedback. We are excited to announce our second major update, SwiftyLaunch 1.2. We think this update brings some great improvements to your workflow, further reducing the time it takes to for you to ship your app.

New Feature: Backend Boilerplate

Introducing Backend Boilerplate

One of the most requested features was the inclusion of a more sophisticated backend solution. Here you go! You can easily pish your backend code to Firebase Functions and if you're using other frameworks, such as AuthKit, NotifKit or InAppPurchaseKit, of course you are able to easily reach out to them from the backend as well.

For implementation details, please refer to the Documentation

New Feature: Individual Framework Selection

Individual Framework Selection is back! After a long battle with many bugs, we are happy to announce that you can once again select individual frameworks to include in your project.

It was a difficult task, that calls for its own blog post one day...

But for now, just tap, tap, tap what you need during Project Creation and SwiftyLaunch will generate the code for you. No unnecessary baggage will be added to your iOS project 😁.

New Feature: Biometric Authentication

Introducing Biometric Auth

Elevate your app's security with effortless Biometric Authentication, supporting both FaceID and TouchID. Secure sensitive operations and views with just a few lines of code. Read more about it in the Documentation

New Feature: Notification Routing

Introducing Notification Routing

When sending out a Push Notification, just pass In-App Notification style data to the notification payload and boom, it will be shown in the app with zero additional setup.

Notification Routing Example

New Feature: Haptics

Introducing Haptics

Create a richer app-experience by utilizing Haptics! It just takes a single line of code to trigger them.

Haptics are deeply integrated within SwiftyLaunch for things like In-App Notification. Zero additional setup required.

Haptics Example

New Feature: Launch Screen

Personalize your app's first impression with a custom Launch Screen. You can easily drag-and-drop your app icon and you're good to go. BTW, Dark Mode is supported out of the box.

Bug Fixes, Improvements and more...

Beyond these highlights, SwiftyLaunch 1.2 includes numerous minor enhancements, additional helper functions for a smoother development workflow across various frameworks, and critical bug fixes, notably one resolving an issue with the app showing incorrect accent color upon first launch. We're immensely grateful for your continued support and are confident you'll find value in these updates.
