Unable to install QuickDialog via CocoaPods in AppCode

In AppCode, via CocoaPods, I am trying to install the pod QuickDialog. In the Podfile, I have:
pod 'QuickDialog', '~1.0'
When I go to install, I get an error saying Unknown pod name
The Message window shows:
/usr/bin/ruby /Applications/AppCode.app/Contents/bin/pod install --no-ansi
Updating local specs repositories
Failed with exit code: -1

What do I need to do?

Hi Al.

Please check thet you are using pod for iOS platform. See my example of pod file:

platform :ios, '8.4' 
pod 'QuickDialog', '~>1.0'

Does that help?

Hi Anna,
Thanks for the reply. Adding that line gives the same result.

Could you please share the whole pod file? Also please specify which AppCode version are you using.

That is the entire pod file.
AppCode 3.1.7
Build #OC-139.1402 build on June 10, 2015

I found a solution. I had to go to a terminal and go to the project directory, then type:
$pod init
Then create a Podfile like so:
platform :ios, '8.0'

target 'MyProjectName' do
pod 'QuickDialog'
Then from the command line:
$pod install

When I did the 'pod install' command, , I got this error:
pod:command not found,
So I did a 'sudo gem install cocoapods'. This worked. There is some discussion of doing a chown on the directory instead.

When you get to where it says "Updating local specs repositories", this takes a long time (25 minutes in my case)
and there is no progress indicator.
