Objective-C Programming For Dummies Cheat Sheet

When you write an Objective-C program for your iOS or Mac OS X apps, all you're doing is providing a set of instructions for the computer to follow. Fundamentally, programs manipulate numbers and text, and all things considered, a computer program has only two parts: variables (and other structures), which "hold" the data, and instructions, which perform operations on that data. This Cheat Sheet provides some of the main aspects of Objective-C programming, including making a statement, built-in and new data types, operators, and more.
