    Hi All,

    I just released my first pure Swift iOS app called Binged (3rd result on AppStore search currently).

    link: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/binged/id1120570590?ls=1&mt=8

    This is my first ever iOS app, first time working on Xcode and Swift. I have Java & Web experience, no Obj-C background either.

    I started around 4 months ago from scratch, reading blogs, watching videos, Youtube, StackOverFlow, Lynda.com, Stanford course on iTunesU. I still have a lot to learn. Working on this app was probably the most fun I've had in programming for quite awhile. Lots of learning, lots of re-writes, and some more learning. I had to get familiar with Swift syntax, CocoaTouch, pulling my hair out with auto-layouts and constraints and then StackViews. I probably re-did each view at least a dozen times. Worked with CoreData for local saves and then CloudKit for syncing and changes.

    Version 1.0 functionalities:
    • Subscribe to show
    • Displays episode summaries and airdates
    • Mark episodes you've watched
    • Notifies you when an episode is about to air
    • Lets you know how many episodes behind you are
    • Ability to tweet or post to Facebook
    • Night Theme
    • Displays Casts of a show
    • iCloud Sync
    • And iPad Support!
    If you have any questions, feel free to ask. Please check out my app on the AppStore: 'Binged'

    Hi. I pushed out Version 1.01, below are the changes! If you are having trouble with update, please delete and reinstall.

    Version 1.01:
    - Fixed some version 1.0 bugs, and should run smoother overall.
    - Sorting! Ability to sort by show name, episode airing date, # of episodes missed.
    - Hide Badge Icon. 999 episodes behind? Hide the badge icon in settings.
    - Ability to change alert notification times. From 5 minutes before a show airs up to 6 hours.
    - Ability to mark full seasons watched! No longer necessary to scroll through 596 Simpsons episodes to mark them watched...
    - iCloud Sync toggle. Back up all your shows to the cloud!
    - Changed # of days till next episode font color (gray) to distinguish from # of episodes behind.
    - Ad Banner was getting in the way of Search results, so it has been removed from the search page.
    - Added a + icon on Show subscribe page.
