i don't know if I'm just looking at it all wrong, I'm super new to objective c, and maybe I'm putting the syntax like the guy in the vid instructs me to do, but its not working for me, here is what i have...>>
NSString* myString= @"Crystal Ball"; thats what i had first, copying the guy in the vid, then i read the top of the page and it say>>> Create a NSString variable named 'myString' with the value 'Fun with Objective-C'. NOW HERE IS MY ANSWER TO THAT NSString* myString= @'Fun with Objective-C'. ; >> and i tried it without the ; and it still didm't work.. help please

Hi Kelvin, you might want to try @"Stringtext" instead of @'Stringtext'

Hi Kelvin, make sure you have NSString before you declare the name of the string, have a space BEFORE the * then the name of the string after the * without a space like: NSString *myString
Then a space, an equal sign (=), another space then the name of your string surrounded by DOUBLE QUOTES (") and prefixed with an @ symbol, then end it with a semicolon (;) so it looks like:
NSString *myString = @"Fun with Objective-C";
(remember to include the semi-colon)
Hope this helped - Tom
