Now offering Swift development

touchbee now offers development of new projects for iOS in either Objective-C or Swift. Swift is a new programming language introduced by Apple this summer to replace Objective-C as the main language to develop iOS apps. Some of the advantages of this new languages are:

  • Closures unified with function pointers
  • Tuples and multiple return values
  • Generics
  • Fast and concise iteration over a range or collection
  • Structs that support methods, extensions, protocols.
  • Functional programming patterns, e.g.: map and filter

SAN DIEGO, CA – July 26, 2012 – App Developer touchbee Solutions today announced that their app musicr, is now available exclusively for iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad on the App Store in the US. musicr is a new social networking mobile app, specifically designed for musicians. It helps local musicians by providing different tools to get in touch with each other and stay connected.

musicr is a mobile app, that provides a new way of bringing together musicians. Taking advantage of the phones location awareness feature, musicr can find musicians of any level that are close by. The app makes it very easy to search for new band members, people that just want to hang out to jam or students that are interested in practicing together.

The app tries to suggest best matching local musicians by looking at the musicians profile which includes what they are looking for, favorite music styles and what instrument they play.

“musicr was developed simply because there was no other app that was doing what we wanted. An easy way to find and get in touch with other local musicians while making it a fun experience. I truly think we have achieved that with musicr.”, said Stefan Immich, Founder of touchbee Solutions.

Furthermore musicians can share updates with their friends and see what others are saying and doing, like talking about an upcoming gig or making progress learning a new song. All those updates can easily be shared with Facebook friends. The app even allows to add information about the musicians instruments and upload photos to share with others.

touchbee Solutions has updated its website, can you tell? Our initial web presence has been there for almost two years, and we thought it is time to give it a new look. Our 1.0 version was built with Joomla!, and while Joomla! is a great Content Management System aka CMS, it was time to move on to something that is somewhat easier to manage and use. Since we’ve already worked with WordPress during the last couple months on some other websites, it just made sense to go that direction. We’ve got a new mobile app Portfolio page, highlighting some of our mobile work to date. We hope you find it useful and are looking forward to your feedback! is online!

touchbee Solutions has been working on a new social networking app for musicians called musicr.

We’ve just launched the companion website and are super excited about it. We will regularly post status updates on the development of the app, its upcoming beta test and whatever else we feel you should know about it. You can also like musicr on Facebook or follow us on Twitter.
