I am new to IPhone development. I need to take the current date from device and send to a server in JSon format. The server expects this date to be in milliseconds as since January 1, 1970, 00:00:00 GMT(Unix time) .
I have noticed IPhone has some methods to get the current time in SECONDS, well, should be very easy to transform seconds to milliseconds with a simple * 1000 routine. All the problem begins because as this is my first lines of code with Objective-C for IPhone I am lost trying to get current time in seconds.
How do I get current time in milliseconds in IPhone?
Thanks in advance.
double milliseconds = 1000.0 * [[NSDate date] timeIntervalSince1970];
