Without a doubt proper memory management Objective-C can be difficult when first learning the language.  I have posted about some great guides such as this excellent set of Objective-C memory management video tutorials, but I understand that they can be a bit tough to follow, and might be a bit too in-depth for someone looking for a quick start.

What makes this tutorial a bit different is that it covers the memory management techniques that you need to know, but does so using a simple to follow example, in a very concise format.  The tutorial covers the basics of allocating, and deallocating objects, autorelease objects and retain, and understanding the reference count.

The tutorial is from Ray Wenderlich and can be found here:

If you are brand new to Objective-C and having issues understanding how memory management is handled this guide will increase your understanding quickly.
