iOS5/ARC-compatible touch SDK coming?

Feb 26, 2012 9:31 AM

I'm trying to build my first iOS app that uses the touch SDK, but the current version available for download has not been updated for ARC and iOS5.


I can manually clean up the autorelease and dealloc issues, but there are some other issues (like bridged casting) that are a bit more complex, and I'd prefer to use official supported code than my best guess at what needs to happen.


iOS5 has been out for a while now. Is there an update scheduled?

    The SDK does not use the ARC setting and we don't plan to change that. If you want to enable that setting in your project feel free to do so and modify the SDK code and remove the retain and release calls.


    We are not aware of any iOS5 issues with the SDK at this time. Can you give details on what is not working for you when building with the iOS5 SDK?


    Also, please elaborate on what you mean by “bridged casting”?

    Let me look into all that..thanks for the details.


    In the meantime you should be able to fix your name. Here is some information:


    That comes from their Adobe ID account. They should be able to change it themselves at (instructions below), or call Customer Service to have them change it. The forums pick up the name from Adobe when the user signs in.


    To change your screen name/nickname


    Go to

    If you are not signed in there, use the Sign In link in the upper right corner (beneath the search box) Once signed in with your Adobe ID, you should be taken to a "My Adobe" page There, click on My Information Look for the My Personal Profile section of that page Look for the Screen Name field in the My Personal Profile section Change the screen name to something new Scroll down and look for the Save My Changes button on the right side of the page (it won't appear until you make a change in the screen name).

    Click on the save my changes button


    The next time you sign into it should read that change to your account and show the new name in the Forums
