    At Last

    This is after 5 minutes with the book.

    I've been struggling to get to grips as a newbie with developing for the iPhone using XCode 4. Nearly all the examples use the old XCode 3 so I've been trying to go through these using XCode 4.

    So many things haven't made sense - when it asks you to link this and that etc. I could never work out from the XCode 3 example how to do it in XCode 4.

    30 seconds in the first example I went through (NAV controller) and it all started to make sense.

    Hopefully it'll now start getting easier.
