With the release of iOS 7 I mentioned the iOS 7 sampler an extensive collection of source code examples on new features added with iOS 7.
Shuichi Tsutsumi, the same developer who released the iOS 7 sampler has now released the iOS 8 sampler which you can expect to grow and be updated over time, but already includes many different examples.
