If you’re anything like me, you’ve searched ‘format JSON online’ and pasted something, potentially sensitive, into the first result on Google.
Boop - one of today’s tools is free, open-source and will make sure you never do that again.

Cloudinary - media asset management
Cloudinary’s iOS SDK provides simple, yet comprehensive image and video upload, transformation, optimization, and delivery capabilities that you can implement using code that integrates seamlessly with your existing iOS application.
What’s good
  • All assets URLs are routed through fast CDN for speed
  • Intuitive chaining of transformations
  • Video support also, although the need for this is lower we think
Boop - text manipulation
Ever googled “format JSON online”? Then this could be interesting for you. Boop quickly became one of our favourites because of its simplicity but usefulness! It’s a tool that lets you manipulate text with easy. Minify / format / sport JSON with ease. Need to sort string? Boop does this with ease! CMND + B opens up the actions menu and just start typing what action you’d like to perform.
What’s good

  • No more pasting code in shade online tools
  • Small but great in what it does
  • Written in native Swift
SwiftUI Introspect - UI inspector
SwiftUI Introspect is an open-source library that allows you to get the underlying UIKit or AppKit element of a SwiftUI view. Created by Loïs Di Qual, it is a must have for SwiftUI projects.
Note: This package might break in future swiftUI releases. As underlying UIKit elements or hierarchy change SwiftUI Introspect might not be able to work as intended.
ASO by 2stable - App Store optimisation
ASO allows you to optimise your App Store listing by tracking keywords for your app so you can spot trends and get your app installed on more devices.
What’s good
  • Search the App Store - a highly underrated feature as you sometimes want to use your laptop to check if a new idea exists already
  • Monitor your app rankings
  • No account needed

What is your favourite developer tool and why?
My favourite developer tool that I use almost daily must be the Nova app by Panic. It isn’t specific to iOS development but it’s by far my favourite text editor for macOS. I have a strong love for text editors, in particular text editors that feel modern while also remaining true to the platform, and I believe that’s exactly what Nova does.
What is a tool you couldn’t live without?
The one developer tool that has stayed in my toolchain for the longest, except for Xcode, is Charles. It’s a tool for viewing, debugging, modifying, and replaying network traffic. You can set up Charles to proxy all HTTP and HTTPS traffic from your Mac or iPhone to inspect and modify any request and response. This has been an important tool for me in debugging and understanding iOS apps for the past 10 years or so.
Your top 5 apps on your Mac/iPhone/iPad?
  1. Tot for quickly jotting down text that I don’t need to keep around. Text that I need to keep for a longer period of time goes into Notes.
  2. Tweetbot for staying in touch with the iOS developer community.
  3. Things. Without it, I wouldn’t get much done. Almost everything I need to do throughout a day, whether it is on my day job or in my spare time, goes into Things.
  4. Fork. I feel like changing from using Git in the terminal to a GUI-based app has made me a better developer.
  5. Sketch. For all the same reasons as listed previously. It’s one of those apps that I really enjoy using.
