Double click required on tableview in Ribbit project

I have completed the Ribbit project but when i use the simulator it requires a click on the name I want and then another click in another row for the checkmark to appear or disappear. I have gone through and double checked the code from the Project download but can't find the error. Any help would be appreciated.

Here is the code that I have done for the camera view controller for example.

  • (void)tableView:(UITableView *)tableView didDeselectRowAtIndexPath:(NSIndexPath *)indexPath {

    [self.tableView deselectRowAtIndexPath:indexPath animated:NO];

    UITableViewCell *cell = [self.tableView cellForRowAtIndexPath:indexPath];

    PFUser *user = [self.friends objectAtIndex:indexPath.row];

    if (cell.accessoryType == UITableViewCellAccessoryNone) {

    cell.accessoryType = UITableViewCellAccessoryCheckmark;
    [self.recipients addObject:user.objectId];

    } else {

    cell.accessoryType = UITableViewCellAccessoryNone;
    [self.recipients removeObject:user.objectId];

For me it works, but then again, I am using the MSCellAccessory class to add / remove the check marks.

Try and add [cell setNeedsLayout]; after you are changing the accessoryType and see if it refreshes it correctly - actually you can add it right after that if-else statement finishes.

I actually copied the code from Ben's project into mine which was exactly the same and then it worked fine, so unless something else caused it I am at a loss but I will try your example as well as it would be good to learn a different way...
