Applicaster Zapp App Connector utilities for iOS plugins

The Zapp App Connector is one of the key tools to help plugins communicate with Zapp Apps.

The Zapp App Connector is a shared instance with multiple delegates set up at the app launch with helper methods that should be utilized by all apps. Before importing various pieces of the Applicaster SDK - please look for an App Connector delegate that might provide the desired functionality.
