AppCode 1.0 offers Xcode interoperability
Intelligent, productivity-enhancing development tools provider JetBrains, extends its wide range of technology-specific development environments with AppCode – a new IDE for Objective-C developers.
AppCode contain advanced code analysis routines and a smart editor, which enables intelligent code completion, refactorings, auto-import, one-click code navigation, automatic code formatting, and more productivity-bound features.
Transparent integration of Xcode with AppCode makes AppCode a powerful tool for professional Objective-C developers and also for those just joining the ever-growing iOS developers camp.
AppCode 1.0 offers Xcode interoperability by which user can open and create Xcode projects from AppCode; integrated graphical debugger over either GDB or LLDB; running and debugging iOS applications on a device or in a simulator an visual unit test runner for OCUnit.
In addition, AppCode 1.0 also offers automatic memory leak detection with appropriate quick-fix option, support of the latest iOS 5 features, like Automatic Reference Counting and version Control Systems integration.
JetBrains AppCode project lead Maxim Shafirov said JetBrains’ goal with AppCode is to help developers maintain the high quality of their application code so it equals the high standards for UI and user experience that iOS and Mac OS platforms apply.
"After 11+ years of successful IDE development, we have formed a set of development best practices and code quality standards that we think will benefit the fast-evolving community of Objective-C developers. Thanks to tight integration with the existing set of tools provided by Apple, we can see AppCode quickly becoming a key tool in the arsenal of professional Objective-C developers," said Shafirov.
