Blocks in Everyday Use

Blocks were added to Objective-C as one of the new features of iOS 4 over a year ago, yet few developers take advantage of their power to streamline and improve their code. You’ve seen the syntax, heard the hoopla, and might have even tried them out; now learn a variety of practical ways to use blocks in your everyday coding and revel in your newfound power. — Jiva DeVoe, Random Ideas, LLC

Interaction Flow in UI Design 

You’re designing an app and have a pretty good idea of it’s supposed to do, either because it’s your idea or because your client has told you. Maybe you already have a user interface idea or perhaps you’re not even sure where to start; either way, backing up a bit and examining how an app’s features and the user’s goals interact can help ensure complete strangers will be able to enjoy using it. — Matthew Frederick
