Do you think we are missing an alternative of WhatsNew or a related project?
WhatsNew automatically displays a short description of the new features when users update your app. This is similar to what happens in Apple's apps like Pages, Numbers, Keynote, iMovie and TestFlight.
Simply list your new features (with optional icons), customize the appeareance and when to show it (only on major updates for example).
Run the example project from the
Example directory and check out
import WhatsNew let whatsNew = WhatsNewViewController(items: [ WhatsNewItem.image(title: "Nice Icons", subtitle: "Completely customize colors, texts and icons.", image: #imageLiteral(resourceName: "love")), WhatsNewItem.image(title: "Such Easy", subtitle: "Setting this up only takes 2 lines of code, impressive you say?", image: #imageLiteral(resourceName: "threed")), WhatsNewItem.image(title: "Very Sleep", subtitle: "It helps you get more sleep by writing less code.", image: #imageLiteral(resourceName: "night")), WhatsNewItem.text(title: "Text Only", subtitle: "No icons? Just go with plain text."), ]) whatsNew.presentIfNeeded(on: self)
