In iOS, it's very rare to find an app that is not using UIScrollView or UITableView. These two components are very important and are considered a must to know and master components. In the first section, we will give some information about UIScrollView and how to use it. Then, in the rest of the sections, we will talk about UITableView. We will talk about managing sections and how to add a header and footer to table sections or to the table itself. We will see how to create custom cells and resize them dynamically based on cell contents. UITableView provides us with APIs as well to edit it by adding or removing cells with/without animations and by dragging or dropping cells. This chapter is important to read and apply the demos yourself, as these components are heavily used in most apps.
