Reveal Public Beta
My friends at Itty Bitty Apps have released an awesome new tool for iOS developers. Reveal is a Mac OS X application for introspecting iOS apps at runtime. It allows you to visualise and modify view hierarchies in real-time. The view structure can be "exploded" in 3D, with powerful tools for drilling down and isolating the parts of the hierarchy that need attention.
I have been helping the Itty Bitty Apps team develop Reveal for the past 6 months or so. My focus has been on the 3D view hierarchy explosion visualisation, using Scene Kit & OpenGL. We are working hard on getting it all polished and looking awesome for the 1.0 release.
Reveal is currently free during the public beta phase. Take a look at http://revealapp.com/
