AppCode 1.5: Feel the Freedom and Power of Refactoring!

Please welcome — AppCode 1.5 is officially released!

If you read the AppCode 1.5 What’s New page and check the release notes you’ll see that we’ve improved literally every part of the IDE and have upgraded some of them to a new level.

Here are some changes that make us especially proud:

  • Almost three times as many refactorings. We’ve added extract parameter, extract instance variable, etc. You can inline anything and do things like convert local variable to ivar/property/parameter in the blink of an eye.
  • The debugger got a number of great improvements, e.g. code completion in the debugger console, exception breakpoints, viewing the contents of STL container objects, etc.
  • We’ve improved C++ coding with auto-import and a better code completion.
  • New views: ‘Hierarchy’ to explore imports hierarchy and ‘Call Hierarchy’ to examine your code execution flow.
  • Better Xcode interoperability is ensured: Xcode Schemes are auto synced with run configuration, added ability to manage targets in AppCode and Xcode 4.4 is supported.
  • We’ve sped up project indexing and reload after external changes.
  • And we’ve further updated the IDE UI.

Note, that if you own an AppCode 1.0 license, 1.5 is a FREE update for you, according to our 1 year of free updates licensing policy.

Develop with pleasure!

    Very exciting, been looking forward to the next wave of improvements. I’m using AppCode near daily at the moment and loving it. I die a little inside every time I have to return to XCode to change build settings or use Interface Builder.

    Keep up the great work!

    Sorry for little offtopic, but would you add C++ support to IDEA for native Android development?

      It’s not likely, at least in a short term.

    I love your tool, thanks for all the frequent updates. I own a licence for IDEA 11 and use it for developing with multiple languages. Do I need to buy a new license to use AppCode 1.5 after the 30 day trial runs out, or do I have other options? Thanks, -Jason

      Yes, IntelliJ IDEA license doesn’t cover AppCode so you’ll need to buy that separately
