SwiftUI – Alternative methods to add and modify Text and Stacks

In the follow up to my last post, this guide will show how to use the object library in Xcode to place Text and Stacks directly into the design preview of an app. Yes, this means knowing less code. It is a close to drag and drop coding you can get and it works rather well.

The guide also introduces the attributes inspector to modify objects in the design, say for instance what font style the Text has. Again less coding required. 😁

Live AR Pictures App Part 5

Now the final part of my guides showing how to create you own Live AR Pictures app. This movie explains how to add fade transitions to the animations just to give the final product a nice clean look. This is much more complicated than the other guides and pushes the boundaries of my understanding so bare with my descriptions of what is happening.
I will add further guides based around this app but it will focus on additional AR elements or how might you include this inside your main app.

Live AR Pictures App Part 4

In this part of the series I am going to explain how we can add to our app so that when an image is not visible on the device that the animated movie pauses. This is a nice effect that makes the overall app feel more natural.
