WesternQuakes App Release

As part of my years-long effort to learn more Swift I‘ve been working on a number of small iOS apps. One of them is fairly limited in scope, which made it easy to finish the app and submit it for app review.

Today the app was approved for the iOS App Store and WesternQuakes is now available for download: WesternQuakes on the iOS App Store

It was quite instructive to go through the steps of releasing an app and it forced me to actually sweat the details and make sure the app is not generating an endless list of warnings during compilation. Actually, using MapKit in SwiftUI triggered some strange warnings during runtime that were extremely hard to track down and get rid off, since the code that produces the errors is actually inside MapKit. I might make that a little tutorial and then post it here, since there were not many resources online about this issue.
