iOS Objective-C Basics (Retired) Foundation Framework NSDictionary


This code doesn't work I have no idea why.

Hi Ricardo,

You're very close, instead of passing an NSString to setObject you've past an NSNumber object, simply add quotes around it like the below and you'll be good to go.

[albumMutable setObject:@"1969" forKey:@"year"];
