The iOS department in GoodRequest works on projects such as Tipsport, ZSE drive, or - food via the Internet. These are really useful applications used by thousands of people. However, large projects require a large "skill". Where possible, we simplify or streamline our work. We will share our iOS tips with you.

What programming shortcuts do we use daily?

Quickly open anything in Xcode

SHIFT + CMD + O opens a window similar to spotlight, where you can search for things like specific files by name, function, method, and variable.


Move between words without using the mouse

Option + <-, Option + -> moves the cursor to the beginning of the current or previous word. If you also hold SHIFT, you can also mark the word.
