UICollectionView Tutorial: How To Create An iOS 6 UICollectionView Using Storyboards

There have been a number of open source grid view components and Apple decided to create their own grid view class UICollectionView.

Currently there is no template in Xcode for collection view apps so Ash Furrow decided to create a tutorial demonstrating how to set things up.

In the tutorial you’ll learn how to work with Apple’s new grid view class UICollectionView by setting up the  layout using storyboards, and fill the view with images downloaded online.

Here’s an image from the tutorial showing the finished project:

You can find the UICollectionView tutorial here.  The example project can be found on Github here.

Ash has also released an example demonstrating how to use NSFetchedResultsController with UICollectionView that can be found on Github here.

This the first tutorial listing added to the new iOS 6 SDK tutorial page (or at least will be soon after this post is published).
