Day 08: SimPholders
This post is part of a larger series where for 31 days I’m posting a story about a particular product or service I’ve come to enjoy.
SimPholders is a great example of identifying a small but troublesome issue and building a simple solution for it. SimPholders is a menu bar extension that helps you quickly get at the most recent Xcode simulator builds in the Finder as well as a handful of other useful features.
I’ve been using SimPholders for a while and it’s really handy. I find myself often needing to sneak into a app’s documents folder to inspect a Core Data database, or fidget with some other resource and SimPholders makes it super easy. This despite all of the latest complexities of Xcode and the growth in simulator devices / platforms.
