AppKiDo is a free reference tool for Cocoa Objective-C programmers. The goal of AppKiDo is to help you find what you want in the Cocoa documentation. It does this by parsing the header files and the HTML doc files that were installed with your Developer Tools, and presenting the results in a form that is easy to navigate. AppKiDo can search for names of classes, protocols, functions, types, and constants. Searches are by substring, not keyword. So, for example, if you're wondering how to manage cursors, search for "cursor". Apple has conveniently put the word "cursor" in the names of most things related to cursors.

Does not work with Mountain Lion and Xcode 4. It assumes that dev tools will be inside a regular folder instead of a package, and so does not permit specifying /Applications/Xcode.app as the location for all materials that used to be located in /Developer. Any chance of this being fixed before the release of OS X 10.9?

Why does (almost) every freeware program has brushed windows, I'm getting tired of it.

I have to agree with you. When I first saw the screenshot, with the brushed metal window I thought, "Oh no, not more brushed metal..." After I downloaded the app, I edited the nib file, unchecked a single button, and made the window aqua. (Took all of 5 seconds) I think it looks much better this way, but that's just my opinion.

The app itself is extremely handy. If it looks interesting, but you shudder at its brushed metal exterior like I did, give it a shot. Chances are you're a developer, and can change it in no time.

Hmm thanks for your tip!

There's a "Use textured windows" pref in the preferences, too (which I assume edits the nib for you).

I really hope Apple does two things:

1) Throw a nice sum of money at this developer.

2) Replace Xcode's documention feature with AppKiDo, extended to also cover Carbon and everything else.

AppKiDo is lean, fast, well thought out and immensely useful. Xcode's documentation system badly needs all of these.

Apple, please don't skip step 1 !!!

Couldn't live without it.
Still much better than XCode 2 integrated doc/class browser.
Now I would like some sort of spotlight search :-)

Nice application and very good support from Andy Lee.

I'll just be happy to have a search field directly in the toolbar like Mail.app in complement of the new search dialog box.

Anyway, congratulation to author for this very use full tool.

Hopefully, it's an option !

As this application is created for developers I could easily assume that its user base would be clued up enough on how to change it via IB if they felt so inclined. No big deal.
