ASIHTTPRequest for sure! It is keeping me from going ARC, it's just too powerful!

The master list on your blog misses a few most often used and popular libraries including MKNetworkKit (though MKStoreKit, the not so popular one is present)
It also misses other complex, powerful frameworks like DTCoreText, Facebook-iOS-SDK

Bigger and feature rich libraries like these need tutorials instead of Hockey App, TestFlight or SSKeychain or MBProgressHUD. While they are great services, they mostly contain 3-5 methods that almost anyone can start using it right away.

Write-ins solve the problem, but the number of write-ins you get for a library that is missing will obviously be less compared to votes.

Crashlytics is a very good alternative to the HockeyApp. Although it's still on beta, it is very lightweight (40kb), doesn't require linking with any additional frameworks, it works like a charm and currently free! I don't know if it deserves a tutorial for itself since the instructions on their website are pretty straightforward. Anyways I just wanted to mention it.

My favourite is definitely Parse (http://parse.com/). it's an excellent cloud database server/api.

SVProgressHUD (https://github.com/samvermette/SVProgressHUD), it's like MBProgressHUD but much more pleasant to use.
