Thursday Tech Tip – Garmin Workouts

I’ve been under taking some of the most complex workouts I have ever tried after starting my new training program with TriDot Training Systems. Many of the workouts involve warm up, interval, cruise and cool down phases/steps with specific duration, heart rate, pace, or power/cadence goals for each segment. After doing the first couple of workouts, I realized that printing them out or glancing at my phone constantly to see what step was coming up next was just not going to work.

Thursday Tech Tip – Custom UICollectionViews

Thursday Tech Tip – Custom UICollectionViews

I dealt with a frustrating Xcode 5 situation earlier this week. I was trying to add a custom UICollectionView at the bottom of a standard UIView but was running into serious memory leaks. The app I was working on kept crashing and freezing up and what’s worse is that I was not getting any Xcode specific errors. I had a feeling that it had something to do with the UICollectionView I had added and was populating with data from a REST call. I was hoping to recreate the effect you see to the right here in the Flipboard app.
