Beta 2 of the iPhone SDK was launched last week and as advertised it now includes Interface Builder. Unfortunately somebody forgot to tell the documentation department at Apple about this. There is no documentation about Interface Builder related to the iPhone to be found anywhere. Zip. Nada. Nothing.

Of course there’s the general Introduction to Interface Builder User Guide, but does not deal with any of the specifics for building an iPhone interface.

Online forums are filled with messages from bewildered iPhone developers. Some brave bloggers have posted tutorials, which in many cases feel like putting a square peg into a round hole just to get the darn thing working.

I’ve found one tutorial that stands out from the crowd and actually makes sense from a Model-View-Controller (MVC) perspective. Check out Scott’s Reason #2: Interface Builder is buggy and has no documentation on his curiously named “I Hate the iPhone SDK” blog.
