About the Reviewer


This chapter has shown how to integrate the subjects that were created in this book to integrate them into a functional application to interact with a remote network service, such as GitHub, and be able to present this information in a tabular way.

By ensuring that all network requests are implemented on background threads, and that returned data is updated on the UI thread, the application will remain responsive to the user's input. Graphics and custom views can be created to provide headings, or the Storyboard could be modified to include more graphics for each repository.
