A couple of weeks ago I mentioned a nice collection of iOS 8 SDK source code examples covering many new features such as HealthKit, and Metal. Another great new addition in the iOS 8 SDK is CloudKit for moving data to and from iCloud.

Here’s a nice step-by-step tutorial from Stephen Sparks through which you’ll build a chat app with utilizing iOS 8’s CloudKit framework.

In the tutorial you’ll learn how to set up a CloudKit project, using CloudKit databases, getting notified of changes in real-time, and more.

You can find the tutorial over on the Big Nerd Ranch blog.

You can find the code for the tutorial on Github here.

A nice in-depth tutorial on using CloudKit.

Steven Sparks has also created a video with a nice overview on using key CloudKit:
