minimumInteritemSpacing not working

I don't get it, i have the exact same code (or i have troubles reading) and yet the line of code assigning a value to minimumInteritemSpacing doesn't do anything? minimumLineSpacing is working like a charm btw. UICollectionViewFlowLayout *layout = [[UICollectionViewFlowLayout alloc] init]; layout.itemSize = CGSizeMake(106.0, 106.0); layout.minimumInteritemSpacing = 1.0; layout.minimumLineSpacing = 1.0;

return (self = [super initWithCollectionViewLayout:layout]);

Which device are you simulating when you run your app?

When I run using the iPhone 4s sim, it looks pretty exactly like the video. When I run using the iPhone 6s sim, there are much bigger gaps between the cells.

So looks like it's due to the resolution (?) of the screen on different devices.

Is that what you're seeing?

I expect that to get it having the squares right for all devices, needs to have the 106.0 x 106.0 be dynamically calculated - a problem for another day for me I think.
