iOS 10 is here and stickers are weaking havoc on iMessage conversations the world over. Here's how to make things worse.
If you don't have Xcode 8 already, get it, because you'll need it. Boot it up and select Create A New Project.
The next step is pretty obvious:
Give it a name, and throw it on your desktop. Your task is now to make the app store review team earn their keep. Select the Stickers.xcstickers file and do what it says: simply drag-and-drop.
The more responsible of you out there will be asking for the recommended image dimensions, which you'd think would be specified somewhere. The answer lies in the Apple Developer API Reference, and there you're told to select a Sticker Size from the attributes inspector.
- Small. 100 x 100 points @3x (300 x 300 pixels)
- Medium. 136 x 136 points @3x (408 x 408 pixels)
- Large. 206 x 206 points @3x (618 x 618 pixels)
So, for the biggest and best stickers possible, use images with a size of 618 x 618 pixels, and specify that the Sticker Size be Large.
