I just started using Instruments, a nice little tool for testing memory allocations/ leaks and all that great stuff. But I'm pretty confused at how it works... Ive looked for tutorials explaining how to work with it, but no tutorials explained what to do with it.
I'll try to explain this: I have it set up to whenever I run my Xcode app, Instruments tracks everything. But the stuff that instruments record makes no sense to me.
There was one leak discovered, and after that it started leaking bytes. It says the leaked object is _NSCFString and some other stuff like that. Here is a screenshot
My question is, how do I interpret this? If there is a tutorial out there that explain this, please leave as an answer, or explain it to me.
The best way to learn how to use Instruments is to watch the iOS Development Essential/Advanced/Foundation videos as well as the WWDC session videos on the topic.
You can find a list at Apple's Development Video Access which will require an iOS Developer Account and are usually hosted through iTunes.
