On October 11th, 2019 Ka-ching A/S launched its new website. It wasn't just another makeover of the appearance. It was the marking of a new beginning - a beginning with an international take and a whole new product strategy.
Today Apple released iOS – and iPadOS 13 is just around the corner. The update brings a slew of new features like 'Dark Mode', many new photo and video editing capabilities, security and anti-tracking functionality and new multi-tasking capabilities for the iPad.
For iOS developers – like us at Ka-ching – the update provides even more things to play with:
SwiftUI is a declarative UI framework that lets us build beautiful and powerful UI experiences with less code and less room for mistakes.
SwiftUI is backed by Combine, which is a declarative API for processing values over time.
At Ka-ching, we are particularly happy about Apple embracing this kind of technology since it validates the way that we have built apps since the foundation of the company.
When Ka-ching was founded, we bet against the current status quo and built a foundation using reactive programming paradigms. Now almost three years later, Apple has chosen these exact paradigms for the future of their platforms – and we couldn't be more excited!
Catalyst is another toolkit provided in iOS 13 and macOS Catalina. It allows developers to bring iPad apps to the macOS platform.
At Ka-ching, we are excited to see all of the great 'iPad' apps that will soon be available on macOS, and who knows - perhaps someday Ka-ching will be available on the mac! 😉
Did you know
With Ka-ching's dynamic theming engine, you have had access to a 'Dark Mode' in all of the Ka-ching apps since iOS 11?
In the Ka-ching Back Office, you can change the theme colours with a click of a button.
The theme syncs in real-time (like all data in Ka-ching), and by changing the background, everything in the User Interface will adapt to provide the best contrast fonts and icons.
