UICollectionView tutorials

It appears that the UICollectionView is getting some well deserved love. UICollectionView is a successor - or just a well designed sidekick - to the UITableView, and provides a great way to display a list of items and let the user scroll thru them and select them.

Most of these are in Objective-C, but if you are doing iOS development and can't at least read Objective-C, I suggest you stop what you are doing, and learn enough to read it. It makes life a lot easier.

If you can target iOS6+ for your app, the UICollectionView is a lovely component to use - and while you could do a UITableView-style element with UICollectionView, I'd love to see UITableView2, which had the function or UITableView, but with interface clean up of UICollectionView.

Almost worth going iOS6 only for.

BONUS: The iOS Design Cheat Sheet. Just how high was that title bar.....
