iOS SDK API

track

The track call can be used to manually send data to your destinations.
Swift
Objective-C

Freshpaint.shared().track(
2
"Purchase",
3
properties: ["price": 500]
4
)
Copied!

3
properties:@{ @"price": @500 }];
Copied!

Freshpaint.shared().identify(
3
traits: [
4
"email": "[email protected]",
5
"name": "Ada Lovelace"
6
]
7
);
Copied!

screen

The screen call triggers a screen event. This is the mobile equivalent of a pageview event. Some destinations will treat this event specially.
Swift
Objective-C
1
Freshpaint.shared().screen(
2
"Home Screen",
3
properties: ["A/B Test Variant": "A"]
4
);
Copied!

Description
name
String/NSString*

The name of the screen.
properties
[String : Any]/NSDictionary *
No
Additional properties to attach to the event.

group

The group call associates the user with a user group. Some destinations let you work with groups of users. For example, Amplitude lets you group users together and then perform analytics on the individual groups. Most often, a group of users is all users that work for a single organization.
Swift
Objective-C
1
Freshpaint.shared().group(
2
"Google",
3
traits: [
4
"plan": "enterprise",
5
"sign-up-date": "04/04/2019"
6
]

Copied!
Argument
Swift/Objective-C Type

groupId
String/NSString *

The id of the group to add the user to.
traits
[String : Any]/NSDictinoary *
No
Additional properties to attach to the group.

alias

The alias call can be used to specify one user id as an alias for another user id. Calling this will alias the current user's identity to the new provided identity. This is needed to implement identify for some destinations, specifically Mixpanel and Kissmetrics.

Freshpaint.shared().alias("[email protected]")
Copied!

[[FPAnalytics sharedAnalytics] alias:@"[email protected]"];
Copied!
