iOS presents developers with many opportunities for creating unique user interfaces, but certain elements must be consistent across all applications. When users need to be notified of an application event or make a critical decision, it is important that they be presented with interface elements that immediately make sense. In this hour, we look at several different ways an application can notify a user that something has happened. It’s up to you to determine what that something is, but these are the tools you’ll need to keep users of your apps “in the know.”
