Technical Difficulties

So, I’m working on iPhone App #2 and I’m having this problem were I push a new UIViewController onto my UINavigationController. It normally works just fine: I push and there’s a nice smooth animation that slides my new view onto the screen. But for some reason, the newest one just snaps onto the screen without any delay and then causes all the others to snap on instantly, too.

So after wrestling with this for a while, I gave up and decided to play the piano. Of course, it’d been a while since I’ve practiced and things were sounding kind of messy. Exasperated, I said, “Man, I wish things weren’t so difficult!”. At which point, Tracy said, “Maybe you need to pick easier hobbies.”

True, so very true. But then, I get so much satisfaction from successfully doing these things because they are so challenging. Still, I wish things were just a bit easier sometimes…

    If someone as accomplished as you is finding it hard, I worry about the likelihood of me *EVER* finishing my iPhone app. But I know what you mean about the satisfaction of cracking a problem.

    Well, I did manage to figure out the problem, sort of. I suspected something got wonky in the NIB file and rebuilt it from scratch, step by step. So there’s hope. Keep at it and one day you’ll finish that app, Si!
