    Core Data is an excellent fit if you need to execute complex queries across your data, handle a huge object graph with lots of relationships, etc. However, there's a lot of boilerplate code that must be written. If you're just trying to access some JSON objects, Core Data can be a lot of work for little gain.

    Nonetheless, if you're using or want to use Core Data in your app already, Mantle can still be a convenient translation layer between the API and your managed model objects.

Keyboard Delegate

To cancel the keyboard when the Return key is pressed, see the 'textFieldShouldReturn' message in the UITextFieldDelegate Protocol.

Basically, you'll need to wire the UI Input field's delegate outlet to the view controller (drag the outlet to the "File's Owner" socket).

Then implement the textFieldShouldReturn message by calling resignFirstResponder. The textFieldShouldReturn message can be linked to multiple UI Input fields.
  1. - (BOOL)textFieldShouldReturn:(UITextField *)textField {  
  2.     [textField resignFirstResponder];  
  4.     return YES;  
  5. }  

Reuse a Table Cell

Instead of allocating a new cell for every row in a large UI table, you can recycle old cells as they become eligible for reuse (e.g., a row has scrolled out of the visible region). Use the dequeueReusableCellWithIdentifier message to find the next available cell.
  1. - (UITableViewCell *)tableView:(UITableView *)tableView cellForRowAtIndexPath:(NSIndexPath *)indexPath {  
  2.     UITableViewCell* result = [tableView dequeueReusableCellWithIdentifier:@"id1"];  
  4.     if (result == NULL) {  
  5.         result = [[UITableViewCell alloc] initWithStyle:UITableViewCellStyleValue1 reuseIdentifier:@"id1"];  
  6.     }
