[prMac.com] Houston, Texas - Lightsphere LLC today is pleased to introduce "idev101: Fonts, Colors & UI Sizes", a quick reference app for iOS developers. It's packed with useful tools and info, including a font list, type tester, a color picker and converter, a list of screen sizes, keyboard sizes, icon sizes, sample code, app design templates, and more.
The Fonts section includes the complete list of all the fonts on iOS, and a type tester that shows a preview of text in that font. The type tester also displays the line height and frame size of the sample text, plus the actual font name to use in UIFont declarations. Additional sample code shows users how to specify a font for a label or text field, how to use system fonts, how to get the size of a string in a particular font, and how to use custom fonts in an app.
The Color Picker is a highly useful tool for both app designers and developers. The color sliders work in both RGB and HSB color modes, and the selected color is displayed along with its CSS hex color value. Users can also enter a CSS hex color value and get the corresponding RGB or HSB values. This makes converting to and from HTML/CSS colors extremely easy... a great help for app artists and designers!
The UI Sizes section is packed with essential info: screen sizes for the iPhone 4S (and earlier), iPhone 5, and iPad; icon sizes for iPhone, iPad, and Web apps; keyboard sizes; default (launch) image sizes; and screen shot sizes (required for app submission).
The app also includes an interactive checklist for preparing and submitting an app to the App Store, a printable version of the checklist, and 10 printable PDF templates for designing an app. It's an excellent pocket reference for all iOS developers!
