To examine Core Data on Mac OS X, we’ll follow our familiar pattern, starting off with an application on which to base our examples—another foundation. Since we’ve already created an application on iOS that can share its data through iCloud, it seems only fitting to develop a desktop counterpart to the application that’s able to sync.
