How To Use Parse (Swift, Xcode) – Ep 8 – Saving Images, sounds and file data to Parse

How To Use Parse with Swift and Xcode
Lesson 8
In this lesson, we learn how to store images, sound files and other data types in the Parse backend. We also learn how to retrieve these files.

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.
