Several weeks ago I mentioned the excellent MKNetworkKit – a full featured  iOS networking kit that uses ARC, supplying excellent performance and built to replace ASIHttpRequest now that support of ASIHttpRequest from it’s original creators ended.

One of the best features of MKNetworkKit is the built in image caching.  It’s also one of the more confusing features to use so the creator of MKNetworkKit has created a tutorial demonstrating how to download and cache images from Flickr, and use those images within a custom UITableViewCell.

You can find the tutorial on Mugunth’s site here.

The tutorial also shows how to create neatly fading in thumbnails like in the Apple trailers app.

A useful tutorial if you plan on downloading images within your apps.
