Track user signup events via Objective-C

Connect LogSnag to your Objective-C project to track your user sign up and other important events - LogSnag makes event tracking easy.

When we are building a website or application with Objective-C, we often require our users to sign up for an account before they can access or use our service. This is a common requirement for many services as it allows us to track usage more efficiently, monitor growth, and avoid abuse.

Unfortunately, this process has certain downsides, such as introducing additional friction to our service and making the users go through extra steps before accessing our service.

Thus, tracking user activity when visiting our service and tracking how many go through the signup process and drop off before they use our service is essential. By monitoring the signup process, we can better understand how our visitors interact with our Objective-C service and find and fix any issues they may encounter.

LogSnag makes it easy to track events such as user registration directly within your Objective-C code. As a result, it helps you better understand how your users interact with your product and how your product is performing.

Objective-C code snippets

Using Objective-C with NSURLSession
#import <Foundation/Foundation.h>

dispatch_semaphore_t sema = dispatch_semaphore_create(0);

NSMutableURLRequest *request = [NSMutableURLRequest requestWithURL:[NSURL URLWithString:@"https://api.logsnag.com/v1/log"]
  cachePolicy:NSURLRequestUseProtocolCachePolicy
  timeoutInterval:10.0];
NSDictionary *headers = @{
  @"Content-Type": @"application/json",
  @"Authorization": @"Bearer YOUR_API_TOKEN"
};

[request setAllHTTPHeaderFields:headers];
NSData *postData = [[NSData alloc] initWithData:[@"{\"project\":\"my-saas\",\"channel\":\"auth\",\"event\":\"User Registered\",\"description\":\"email: john@doe.com\",\"icon\":\"🔥\",\"notify\":true}" dataUsingEncoding:NSUTF8StringEncoding]];
[request setHTTPBody:postData];

[request setHTTPMethod:@"POST"];

NSURLSession *session = [NSURLSession sharedSession];
NSURLSessionDataTask *dataTask = [session dataTaskWithRequest:request
completionHandler:^(NSData *data, NSURLResponse *response, NSError *error) {
  if (error) {
    NSLog(@"%@", error);
    dispatch_semaphore_signal(sema);
  } else {
    NSHTTPURLResponse *httpResponse = (NSHTTPURLResponse *) response;
    NSError *parseError = nil;
    NSDictionary *responseDictionary = [NSJSONSerialization JSONObjectWithData:data options:0 error:&parseError];
    NSLog(@"%@",responseDictionary);
    dispatch_semaphore_signal(sema);
  }
}];
[dataTask resume];
dispatch_semaphore_wait(sema, DISPATCH_TIME_FOREVER);
