Wednesday, February 5, 2014

Bolts is a collection of open-source, low-level libraries designed to make developing mobile apps easier. The first components of Bolts is "Tasks", which makes it easier to write asynchronous code. Using Bolts does not require using any Parse or Facebook services, nor does it require having a Parse or Facebook developer account. Simply download the jar or framework file and drop it into your project. Or you can download the source directly from GitHub. Documentation for all of the components in Bolts is available on GitHub as well, so go check it out today!
