Google open sources their iOS app Science Journal

Why open source?
Inquiring minds are always asking, “How does this work?” With our open source app, there are many science and engineering topics to explore! For example, we use the Fast Fourier transform in our iOS code, but you may ask “how did you do that?” Because you can see our source code, you can discover– not just that we used the Fast Fourier transform– but how the algorithm works. We also make it possible to graph many sensor values in realtime and now you can see exactly how we’ve made that possible.

This is a great help for developers looking to learn how to create iOS apps and to learn from Google’s best practices for creating iOS apps.

Very happy to see more mobile apps being open sourced!
