My latest guest post for Waldo shows you how to use SQLite databases using Swift through Gus Muller’s FMDB library. Head to Waldo for the article: Getting Started with FMDB and Swift: A Guide.
Which Database to Use for My iOS App?
Choosing a database to use for your iOS app is no simple feat. But what if you have the tools to make an informed decision for your app? What if you can decide for today and design for tomorrow?

Do you know why it’s so hard to gain access to an SQL database from a Mac App? Here’s why and the solution to your database access woes. Warning: it’s slightly off-beat and rad.
Sandboxing the PubSub framework
Are you having trouble sandboxing your app for the Mac App Store? I did and here is my experience on sandboxing News Anchor that uses Apple’s PubSub framework and didn’t play well with the sandbox. This cost me a DTS ticket and you will want to pay attention if your app also consumes RSS/ATOM feed data.
Lion’s sandboxing deadline may have been pushed back, but News Anchor came through and met the original date. Bringing News Anchor into the sandbox cost me one of the two precious DTS tickets in my quota, due to the difficulties in getting the PubSub framework to function in the environment. I’d figured I ought to write this out to contribute back to the Mac Developer community.
