  1. Store Interface #import <Foundation/Foundation.h> @class CHItem; @interface CHItemStore : NSObject

    { NSMutableArray *items; } // Access the singleton Store + (CHItemStore *)store; // Access Store contents - (NSArray *)allItems; - (void)addItem:(CHItem *)item; - (void)removeItem:(CHItem *)item; // Persist Store contents - (BOOL)save:(NSError *)err; @end
  2. Store Responsibilities • Model Objects from Data Sources • Handles

    Loading & Saving of Model Objects • Encapsulates Caching and Lazy Fetching
  3. Before & After Store Controller Fetches Models Controls Flow Persists

    Models Get, Update, Insert using Store Encapsulates Saving Requests Saving Caches Data Not concerned with data caching
  4. Benefits • Reusable Views - Just add a Model •

    ViewController as Conductor • Interface with Store • Handle User’s Input
