Question: What is a good framework for sharing among small groups on iOS? Must not be Facebook, Twitter or GameCenter.

I would suggest a Google Group.  Make it private/invitation only.

And people ask me why I don't like using 3rd party code. It's full of these 'sins'!

I totally agree about unit testing, it's a hot topic with potential employers, well worth learning. For those unsure of its practical purpose go and write some Ruby, it's real easy to implement.

Proposal for reading/study group for Programming in iOS 6

Am wondering if anyone is interested in forming a reading/study group for the book Programming in iOS 6 by Matt Neuburg? The author has previously written the books Programming in iOS 4 and Programming in iOS 5; these titles are widely respected as excellent references on iOS. The idea behind the titles is not so much to get you coding, but to understand why iOS works in that way, or to understand the philosophy behind it. 

Thought it would be good to study the book which is not yet published by O'Reilly, but whose chapters are hosted online at http://www.apeth.com/iOSBook/

Code samples from the book are on Github at https://github.com/mattneub/Programming-iOS-Book-Examples

Am thinking of reading 3-4 chapters each week, and setting up a group on Google Groups to discuss. I feel a need to get up to speed with iOS 6, since Apple will most likely announce iOS 7 at WWDC in June, with launch in September if they stick to their current product launch calendar. Not getting up to speed quickly means falling further behind. 

Anyone interested?

Question: When creating a magazine app to go into Newsstand, does Apple allow outbound links in the articles, and ads to go with the page layouts? Or does it only allow ads which meet iAd specs?

Hmm... very interesting. When Apple launched iAd, they were requiring minimum adspend of 1M, but then they dropped it to 300K, then 200K. Could be that they are no longer enforcing the requirements, and have quietly dropped their insistence on those regulations. But they don't want to publicly step down.

Have just signed up with the Cupertino Fruit Company as an iOS developer, and would like to set up my iPhone for provisioning and an app for testing. Looked at the instructions and found them very daunting. Is there any blog with simple instructions even I can understand? 

Thanks in advance.

I understand you dread this bureaucracy.  But fear not:  start with your personal information, add zour devices, then sync with XCode.  It creates a wildcard App ID, like 'com.example.*' to enable any app under your domain 'com.example' to build for your device.  In the end, you'll have one profile and/or certificate in every category.

Take a look at some videos:  How to create an App ID in the iPhone Provisioning Portal

Git is built into Xcode 4.5.2 and Github is very popular with developers. This video gives a good conceptual understanding and some of the basic commands of git bash
