5 Common Mistakes to avoid during iOS App Development

With the creation of Swift as an iOS programming language, iOS app development is becoming more trendy and cheap. However, use of traditional Objective-C is still in place and with the acheivement of Swift in all aspects of programming to compete with Objective-C, iOS developers are not in a mood to change completely on Swift.

Don’t indulge in MVC Trap

MVC concept is very popular in web development. Fortunately, iOS programming is also accept it widely and used extensively.

The three layers (Model, View, and Controller separate business logic from UI) permit the designers to do f programming on the same project simultaneously.

  1. model layer consists of data and business logic
  2. View layer has some objects to frame UI (presentation of data)
  3. Controller layer has a important role in managing interactions between data and UI.

Model and View layers won’t communicate directly with each other and therefore they need the presence of Controller layer in between to work together.  To stop indulge, create MVC trap with solid app structural design.

Dealloc method

One of the most repeated mistakes done by iOS developers is that they forget to include the dealloc method in each of the class and this can lead to serious memory management problems. check that you’re including the proper dealloc method in each class in order to avoid issues of this nature.

Evade ui operations in main thread

Performing operations in main threads leads to some unknown weird bugs to involve which affects the performance of the app. So it is important that developers have to run the programs in separate thread. Among those, NSBlockOperation is very much useful to define a block of code and NSOperationQueue saves you from blocking main thread operation by simply placing operations in the queue.

Evade testing in simulator

Usually iOS simulator is fast and reliable and produces needed output but there is a wide range of difference between iOS simulator and real time iPhone.

Gestures like touching and face recognizing are very accurate in real time phone than iOS simulators, so use of iOS simulator to be decreased for testing the app
