Accessorizer is Xcode's No.1 companion and a huge time-saver. With more than 40 code generation actions featuring flexible coding styles, Accessorizer enables you to develop and deliver your iOS and Mac OS X applications much faster and with fewer mistakes.

Accessorizer 3.0 brings you ARC (Automatic Reference Counting) , full screen Xcode support and many other new features. Now, more than ever, you can remain focused on your source with virtually no switching between Xcode and Accessorizer.

Be sure to consult the all new Accessorizer Help Guide for important changes:

Accessorizer features Xcode activation and auto-paste of results at Xcode’s current insertion point. These options can reduce code generation to just one or two keystrokes.

Accessorizer removes the tedium of writing boilerplate Objective-C, Cocoa and Cocoa Touch code. Fully customizable, including configuration sets, Accessorizer can accommodate almost any coding style to meet your needs.

Leveraging Services and allowing you to stay focused in Xcode, Accessorizer does a lot more than generate accessors or @property and @synthesize statements. This "must-have dev tool" can generate code for init, keypaths, keyed-archiving, indexed accessors, accessors for unordered collections such as NSSet, copyWithZone, KVO, key-validation, singleton overrides, dealloc, setNilForKey, non-standard attribute persistence (Core Data), locking, headerdoc, convert method to selector, NSUndoManager methods and more including IBOutlet Detection, NSCopying protocol detection, delegate detection with assignment, setting your UIKit views to nil in -viewDidUnload {...}, sorting your ivar declarations, property and synthesize statements, -dealloc {...}, -viewDidUnload {...} methods, generate constants for properties or constants for strings... and more.

What’s New

Version 3.0.1

* New action in Action Menu and Action Panel for intiWith: (declaration) generation.
* NSLog() can now be generated in accessor overrides from Action Menu and Action Panel
* Fixed missing pointer when generating initWith: method from the main Accessorizer interface. 
Generating from the Action Menu or Action Panel didn’t have the issue.
* Fixed missing quotes on <key> in will/did access/change wrappers in setter override when
 generating from Action Menu or Action Panel.
* Moved the -description override to follow -descriptionForKeyPaths: to avoid compiler warning.
* Removed extra space before semi-colon when generating Protocol Stubs from definitions.
* Removed extraneous pointer to id when last element in an initWith: signature was of type id.

Great Tool - feature request.

This tool is awesome but I'd like to request one additional feature. Under Defaults Table for properties it would nice if there was an option to selecte strong under assignment for arc projects.

Also I can't find a support email address anywhere on your website.

Thanks for the great work.

It's a great development tool.
As others have said, it has some usablilty issues (it takes some getting used to), but overall I'd highly recommend.

Great time saver

Accessorizer is a fantastic time saver and helps prevent typos. The functionality of creating property and synthesize statements alone makes this app worth it and there are numerous other features. Using the keyboard shortcuts makes it easy to switch back and forth between Accessorizer and Xcode. Using Accessorizer in combination with an app that supports pasteboard history (such as LaunchBar), makes Accessorizer perfect as it reduces the number of Cmd-Tab presses to switch back and forth. I had a minor issue with keyboard shortcut conflicts and Kevin responded quickly to help me solve the problem. Great software and great support! I've only scratched the surface of using its capabilities and look forward to learning more of its features as I continue to use it.
