For this tutorial, we assume XCode 4.4 is used. One of the new features of 4.4 version is auto.synthesis, which provides default synthesis of properties.
If you're using an older version of XCode, then you'll need to synth the properties.

I'm happy that there is a Mac tutorial and hope that some more will follow.
But i have a question, is there a reason that you don't use bindings in this tutorial? They could save you a lot of code. The complete table view code in this first tutorial, could be unnecessary with bindings.

i'm glad you liked the tutorial.

You're right about the bindings. Using them would have saved writing a lot of code.

We used the delegate/datasource approach because it's very similar to the way the table views work in iOS. Since most of the readers here have background in iOS programming, we wanted to show that many of the techniques used in iOS could be valid in Mac programming with small changes.

For a first introduction to OSX, using bindings could have caused a bit of confusion, and would have hidden the fact that the delegate/datasource method can be used almost in the same way as it's used in iOS.

cheers.

Hi

you can read How to submit your App tutorial and iCloud tutorial.
Those are a good references to learn how to submit your app and how to handle profiles for iCloud.
The steps to publish a Mac App are almost identical.

cheers.
