Chris, Great stuff. Keep up the good work.

Another way of posing this request would be to ask whether I should try to "place" my FB snapshot data into the custom cells during the .observe event (i.e. when the app is reading the data line by line), or whether i need to hold it in a temporary array then port the array back out… Read more »

Hey Chris, I've copied the coding exactly and no matter what I try, the tableView is not updating with what I add in the text view or directly into the database via the Firebase console. Almost as if the database and app just stop communicating?Please help if you can?

The only issue that I had was I had to add my apple id to keychain (capabilities in the plist) as the code was complaining and the runtime exception was choking it. I went through some of the forums and found that the apple user id needs to be added to the keychain (capability).
