Chapter 1

Wax On, Wax Off

By now, you have written an iOS application or two. You have also learned that making a great app is hard work. From spontaneous crashes to memory leaks and bugs that create other bugs, the simplest of apps can quickly become a nightmare. Fortunately, these issues are easy to diagnose with the tools at our disposal.

That is what this book is mostly about. We have a toolbox available to us as iOS developers. Ultimately, the question quickly becomes: Which tool is best for the task at hand? This book will answer that question for most of your cases. For the cases where there is no obvious answer, you will be equipped with some approaches and techniques that will point you in the right direction.
