iOS, tvOS & watchOS

Before starting your application instrumentation, ensure that you have created an app and have an appKey


We strongly recommend using CocoaPods when installing the Pyze SDK as it is the easiest and ensures you are using the latest stable version. However, if you do not want to use Cocoapods you can install the Pyze Framework manually.

Using Cocoapods

You can find detailed instructions for installing and setting up CocoaPods at the CocoaPods website. Please follow those instructions and return here.

Add the following to your podFile:

pod 'pyze-sdk-iOS'

pod 'pyze-sdk-tvOS'

pod 'pyze-sdk-watchOS'

pod 'pyze-sdk-iOS7'

Run pod install in your project directory

You should see this output:

Pod installation complete! There is 1 dependency from the Podfile and 1 total pod installed.

Using Swift?

If you are using Swift, also add the following line (if missing) to your Podfile. Note the exclamation mark.


Manual Installation

We strongly recommend using CocoaPods when installing the Pyze SDK as it is the easiest and ensures you are using the latest stable version. However, if you do not want to use Cocoapods, use the Pyze Framework to install the SDK manually, as shown below.

Download the appropriate framework:

Import into Xcode

Drag and Drop the Pyze.framework from your Downloads folder into your project directory within Xcode.

Note: If targeting watchOS, Select ‘YourApp WatchKit Extension’ as drop target

Select following options:

  • Destination:
    • Copy items into destination group’s folder (if needed)
  • Folders:
    • Create group for any added folders options

Add Frameworks (iOS and tvOS only)

Add following frameworks to your target. If you are new to iOS please refer to the Apple documentation here.

  • CoreTelephony used to report the carrier operator information like the name, capabilities, country code

  • SystemConfiguration used to detect system errors and changes in ability to reach the internet

Add -ObjC linker flag

Add -ObjC linker flag to project’s target.

  • In Xcode, choose View > Navigators > Show Project Navigator, or press ⌘1.
  • Select your project under the PROJECT heading in the Project Navigator, then select the Build Settings tab and All sub tab.
  • Scroll down to the Other Linker Flags build setting under the Linking collection or type “Other Linker Flags” into the search bar.
  • Set the value of the Other Linker Flags build setting to exactly -ObjC


5.Include in ‘Embedded Binaries’
  • Select Project target > Goto General > ‘Embedded Binaries’
  • Click on the ‘+’ icon
  • Select ‘Pyze.framework
  • Click on ‘Add



Open AppDelegate.swift (iOS & tvOS) or ExtensionDelegate.swift (watchOS) in the project and import Pyze module

import Pyze

iOS & tvOS Open the AppDelegate.swift file and add the following lines in your func application(application:, willFinishLaunchingWithOptions: function

func application(_ application: UIApplication, willFinishLaunchingWithOptions launchOptions: [UIApplicationLaunchOptionsKey : Any]? = nil) -> Bool {
    Pyze.initialize("PYZE_APP_KEY", withLogThrottling: .PyzelogLevelMinimal)
    return true

func application(application: UIApplication, willFinishLaunchingWithOptions launchOptions: [NSObject : AnyObject]?) -> Bool {
    Pyze.initialize("PYZE_APP_KEY", withLogThrottling: .PyzelogLevelMinimal)
    return true

watchOS Open the ExtensionDelegate.swift file and add the following lines in your func applicationDidFinishLaunching() function

For watchOS, add code in didFinishLaunchingWithOptions

/// Swift (watchOS)
func applicationDidFinishLaunching() {
        withLogThrottling: .PyzelogLevelMinimal)


Open your AppDelegate.m (iOS & tvOS) or ExtensionDelegate.m (watchOS) in the project and import Pyze module

#import <Pyze/Pyze.h>

iOS and tvOS - Add following lines in application:willFinishLaunchingWithOptions: method in the @implementation block of your App delegate code file. (usually AppDelegate.m ). If you do not have application:willFinishLaunchingWithOptions: method in your class simply add it.

- (BOOL)application:(UIApplication*)application willFinishLaunchingWithOptions:(NSDictionary*)launchOptions {
    [Pyze initialize:@"PYZE_APP_KEY"
        withLogThrottling: PyzelogLevelMinimal]; //see
    return YES;

watchOS - Add following lines in application:applicationDidFinishLaunching: method in the @implementation block of your Extension delegate code file. (usually ExtensionDelegate.m ).

// Objective C (watchOS)
- (void)applicationDidFinishLaunching {
    [Pyze initialize:@"PYZE_APP_KEY"
        withLogThrottling: PyzelogLevelMinimal];

Custom Events

Custom events allow you to easily track unique user actions within your app.

Events with Attributes

This allows you to track when a user executed an action, for a simple count of how often that event is occurring.

Attributes are any key-value pair that you can attach to an event. You can have up to 99 attributes with any event. It is highly recommended to follow our Best Practices and heavily rely on attributes to make your instrumentation as minimal and useful as possible. In a typical application, you should have many more attributes than events.

[PyzeCustomEvent postWithEventName:@"My Blog Read Event"
        @"Author" : @"nav iosnavtabsS",
        @"User Status" : @"Registered",
        @"Article Source" : @"",
        @"Publish Time" : @"2015-12-17"}];

// Alternate way to pass value1,key1, value2,key2 ...
NSDictionary * attributes = [NSDictionary dictionaryWithObjectsAndKeys:
    @"nav iosnavtabsS", @"Author",
    @"Registered", @"User Status",
    @"", @"Article Source",
    @"2015-12-17", @"Publish Time",
[PyzeCustomEvent postWithEventName:@"Blog Read" withAttributes:attributes];

PyzeCustomEvent.postWithEventName("Blog Read",
    withAttributes: ["Author": "nav iosnavtabsS", "User status":  "Registered",
    "Article Source": "CNN", "Publish Time": "12-17-2015"])

// Alternate way to pass value1,key1, value2,key2 ...
let attributes: [NSObject : AnyObject] = [
    "Author" : "nav iosnavtabsS",
    "User_Status" : "Registered",
    "CNN" : "Article Source",
    "12-17-2015" : "Publish Time"

PyzeCustomEvent.postWithEventName("Blog Read", withAttributes: attributes) "Blog Read", withAttributes: ["Author": "nav iosnavtabsS", "User status":  "Registered", "Article Source": "CNN", "Publish Time": "12-17-2015"])
// Alternate way to pass value1,key1, value2,key2 ...
let attributes: [AnyHashable : Any] = [
    "Author" : "nav iosnavtabsS",
    "User_Status" : "Registered",
    "CNN" : "Article Source",
    "12-17-2015" : "Publish Time"
] "Blog Read", withAttributes: attributes)

Timed Events

Timing how long a user takes to complete an action is a common usecase for Pyze. The SDk has built-in handling for this, by allowing you to start a timer, and then send a custom event at the completion of that action.

  • startTimerForEvent - Start the timer with a name
  • postTimedEvent - End the timer by referencing the same name. The time in milliseconds will automatically be attached to this event.
  • postTimedEventWithAttributes - End the timer by referencing the same name and attaching any attributes as well. The time in milliseconds will automatically be attached to this event.

//Start timer for event
[PyzeCustomEvent startTimerForEvent:@"Screen Load Time"];

//Post timed event. 
//Note : The event name attribute for the `startTimerForEvent` and  `postTimedEvent` should match.
[PyzeCustomEvent postTimedEvent:@"Screen Load Time"];

//Post timed event with attributes
[PyzeCustomEvent postTimedEvent:@"Screen Load Time" withAttributes:@{
    @"device" : @"iPhone 6s",
    @"location" : @"CA"

//Start timer for event
PyzeCustomEvent.startTimer(forEvent: "Screen Load Time")

//Post timed event. 
//Note : The event name attribute for the `startTimerForEvent` and  `postTimedEvent` should match.
PyzeCustomEvent.postTimedEvent("Screen Load Time")

//Post timed event with attributes
    "Screen Load Time",
    withAttributes: [
        "device": "iPhone 6s",
        "location": "CA"


Profiles are a powerful way to add data about your users to Pyze. Use profiles to add data that is not specific to a point in time (events) and are attached to a specific user.

When a user logs in to your app, call setUserProfile to identify them to Pyze. Any events that happen after they are identified, will be attributed to this user. You should only call this method once upon the initial login of a session.

You can optionally include profile attributes.

Pyze built-in profile attributes get special handling in the pyze UI, and we will attempt to discern the data type for custom attributes based on the data recieved. There is no difference between the built-in attributes and custom ones outside of formatting applied.

//Create Pyze Profile Attributes object
//Create Custom Profile Attributes object
//Call the setUserProfile API
[PyzeIdentity setUserProfile:@"" pyzeProfileAttributes:@{
    @"email_id"        : @"",
    @"date_of_birth"   : @"1984-06-01",
    @"first_name"      : @"John",
    @"last_name"       : @"Jacobs"
} customProfileAttributes:@{
    @"age"       : @29,
    @"pincode"   : @"23200",
    @"city"      : @"XYZ"

Updating an existing user Profile

To update user profile attributes which are already set, use the following api.

Note : Do not call this api before calling setUserProfile.

//Create Pyze Profile Attributes object
//Create Custom Profile Attributes object
//Call the updateUserProfile API
[PyzeIdentity updateUserProfile:@"" pyzeProfileAttributes:@{
    @"email_id"        : @"",
    @"date_of_birth"   : @"1984-06-01",
    @"first_name"      : @"John",
    @"last_name"       : @"Jacobs"
} customProfileAttributes:@{
    @"age"       : @29,
    @"pincode"   : @"23200",
    @"city"      : @"XYZ"

Logging out a user

Call this api when a user logs out. Event sent after this call will have no identity attached, and will be attributed to an anonymous user.

[PyzeIdentity resetUserProfile];

User Privacy

Pyze provides APIs to allow end-users to Opt out of Data Collection and also instruct the Pyze system to forget a user’s data.


Allows end-users to opt out from data collection. Opt-out can be toggled true or false.

[Pyze setUserOptOut:true];


To resume user data collection set value to false


Allows end-users to opt out from data collection and delete the user in the Pyze system. We recommend you confirm this action as once a user is deleted, this cannot be undone.

[Pyze deleteUser:true];

    //Enable app to view notification in foreground
    func userNotificationCenter(_ center: UNUserNotificationCenter, willPresent notification: UNNotification, withCompletionHandler completionHandler: @escaping (UNNotificationPresentationOptions) -> Void) {

5. Enable Rich Push Notification for your app.

Enable your app to receive images and gifs inside push notification messages.

  • Go to File -> New -> Target and create a Notification Service Extension.
  • Fill the Product Name and select required language.
  • Make sure to select Embed in Application as YOUR PROJECT.
  • XCode will create a NotificationService class after adding the above extension. Replace its content by below code.

In-App Notifications

In-app notifications allow app businesses to reach out to app users when they use your app. In-App notifications are built-in to the pyze sdk and have no additional dependecies.businesses to reach out to users from manually from Dynamic Funnels and Intelligence Explorer, and automatically based on workflows and campaigns from Growth Automation. In-App notifications can be sent from Campaigns Call the following methed, wherever you want to check for new messages and pop-up a modal with the notification:

[Pyze showInAppNotification];

Debugging and Logging

Setting the log level

The Initialize API accepts an optional 2nd parameter to set the loglevel. To control the debug log level. The Default log level for the Pyze SDK is Minimal.

Following are the logging level options you could use.


Troubleshooting Guide

  1. Missing Frameworks

If you chose to install the Pyze Framework manually and forgot to add frameworks CoreTelephony and SystemConfiguration, following compilation errors will occur.

 "_CNCopyCurrentNetworkInfo", referenced from: ...
 "_CNCopySupportedInterfaces", referenced from: ...
 "_OBJC_CLASS_$_CTTelephonyNetworkInfo", referenced from: ...
 "_SCNetworkReachabilityCreateWithAddress", referenced from: ...
 "_SCNetworkReachabilityCreateWithName", referenced from: ...
 "_SCNetworkReachabilityScheduleWithRunLoop", referenced from: ...
 "_SCNetworkReachabilitySetCallback", referenced from: ...
 "_SCNetworkReachabilityUnscheduleFromRunLoop", referenced from: ...   

Resolution: Add frameworks CoreTelephony and SystemConfiguration

  1. Missing CoreTelephony framework

Missing CoreTelephony framework would generate the following compilation errors.

"_OBJC_CLASS_$_CTTelephonyNetworkInfo", referenced from: ...
"_CNCopySupportedInterfaces", referenced from: ...   

Resolution: Add CoreTelephony framework

  1. Missing SystemConfiguration framework

Missing SystemConfiguration framework would generate the following compilation errors.

"_SCNetworkReachabilityCreateWithAddress", referenced from: ...
"_SCNetworkReachabilityCreateWithName", referenced from: ...
"_SCNetworkReachabilityScheduleWithRunLoop", referenced from: ...
"_SCNetworkReachabilitySetCallback", referenced from: ...
"_SCNetworkReachabilityUnscheduleFromRunLoop", referenced from: ...   

Resolution: Add SystemConfiguration framework

  1. Following exception will be raised by calling empty PyzeAppKey passed to initializeWithKey method.
*** Terminating app due to uncaught exception 'NSInternalInconsistencyException', 
reason: 'PyzeAppKey needs to be set via initializeWithKey: method. 
Log on to to get it.'
  1. Screen flows will not automatically get updated at if you have missed adding ObjC value to Other Linker Flags under Linking of your project’s build settings.

    Resolution: Add ObjC flag

  2. Following error will be shown upon compiling your project if you are using Cocoapods and opened .xcodeproj instead of .xcworkspace.

*** ld: library not found for -lPods-Project_Name-ObjC
clang: error: linker command failed with exit code 1 (use -v to see invocation)
  1. If you encounter following error while using Cocoapods, please ensure that your deployment target is set to 8.0.
Specs satisfying the `pyze-sdk-iOS` dependency were found, but they required a higher minimum deployment  target.
  1. If you get a build spec validation error in cocoapods while installing or updating Pyze SDK as show below, please either change the target in your app to iOS 8 (from iOS 7), or use the framework version of Pyze from GitHub. See here for installing Pyze using Framework.
ERROR | [iOS] dynamic: Dynamic frameworks and libraries are not supported on iOS 8.0 and onwards 
  1. If you get ‘Image not found’ error while running as shown below, ensure that @executable_path/Frameworks is added to Runpath Search Paths under Linking section of your project build settings. This usually happens if you created Xcode project version 5.x or 6.x.
dyld: Library not loaded: @rpath/Pyze.framework/Pyze
Referenced from: <path_to_your_app>
Reason: image not found

More info provided in this link

  1. If you encounter errors like fatal error: lipo: can't open input file: then go to Xcode project target settings and change Build Active Architecture only to YES.

AppStore Submission

Before submitting your app to the AppStore (especially through Application we need to get rid of the simulator binaries, to achieve this please follow the below steps.

  • Go to your project target
  • Navigate to Build phase
  • Click ‘+’ to add ‘New Run script
  • Copy and paste the below script

echo "Target architectures: $ARCHS"

find "$APP_PATH" -name '*.framework' -type d | while read -r FRAMEWORK
FRAMEWORK_EXECUTABLE_NAME=$(defaults read "$FRAMEWORK/Info.plist" CFBundleExecutable)
echo $(lipo -info "$FRAMEWORK_EXECUTABLE_PATH")


# remove simulator's archs if location is not simulator's directory
case "${TARGET_BUILD_DIR}" in
    echo "No need to remove archs"
    if $(lipo "$FRAMEWORK_EXECUTABLE_PATH" -verify_arch "i386") ; then
    lipo -output "$FRAMEWORK_TMP_PATH" -remove "i386" "$FRAMEWORK_EXECUTABLE_PATH"
    echo "i386 architecture removed"
    if $(lipo "$FRAMEWORK_EXECUTABLE_PATH" -verify_arch "x86_64") ; then
