The following documentation is built to help you with installing our iOS SDK into your project.

Before we begin, please do make sure that

  • Your application is built on iOS 8.0 or above. Since Applozic SDK as of now only supports Version 8.0 or higher
  • You have Xcode 8.0 or later as your IDE to install and run Applozic SDK on iOS.

The Applozic SDK can be installed using the following method

Automated Installation using CocoaPods

In case you are already using Cocoapods, Jump to point 4 of the installation process mentioned below.

For rest of us, please follow the instructions below

  1. Open Terminal
  2. Navigate to the root directory of your Project
  3. Run command

pod init

  1. Again go to your Project's root directory, click on the "Podfile" to open.
