I want to store pictures taken from camera and video recordings from my application in a separate folder in temporary directories for a while. And as the task is being completed, they shall be going to save into the database.
How do I save pictures taken from camera & video recording files in a separate folder in temp directories?
Guidelines are welcome.
You are looking for this to get tot he caches folder to store temporary files:
NSString* path = [NSSearchPathForDirectoriesInDomains(NSCachesDirectory, NSUserDomainMask, YES) lastObject];
From there you can use
NSFileManager to create and remove the directories you want. And store files just as to any other part of a file system. Just be aware that the system will purge the caches directory now and then.
So never rely on file remaining, nor disappearing, between restarts of your app.
