How To Use Parse (Swift, Xcode) – Ep 12 – Parse Geolocation and GeoPoints

How To Use Parse with Swift and Xcode
Lesson 12
In this lesson, we’ll cover how to work with location data in Parse using PFGeoPoint and geolocating the current user.

In this series, I’ll show you guys how to leverage Parse in your Xcode projects and apps to save data and media (such as images and sounds) and then to retrieve them through the Parse API.

Parse is a backend as a service that gives your app database abilities without having to manage your own. The free tier is very generous and sufficient for most apps.

    Great tutorial Chris. Parse Server is still the easiest and one of the most powerful backends ever. I got this tutorial working on a device. Thanks again

    All I wanted to know, I was so focus on user account and PFObject that I didn't even realized Parse had its own Geo localization. All I needed and you serve me that on a plate! Thanks Chris.

    I'm Ziga and I have a really good idea for app, that isn't avalible (yet) and it would be really really useful. I'm not a programmer myself, so I'm not able to create this app, but it is very simple one. Please give me contact info (mail…) so I can describe it a little more.
