Problem with code challenge in Build a Simple iPhone App (iOS 7)


I wanted to begin the course, but I constantly get an error when trying to complete the first code challenge. I've put in "NSString *myString = @"Crystal Ball";", but it tells me that "Bummer! Your 'myString' variable has the wrong value in it. Check the task instructions again."

I've reloaded the page a couple of times and it keeps giving me some sort of error, although not always the error above even though I paste the same text in the editor.

Your value should be "Fun with Objective-C" and not "Crystal Ball".

Hi Amit

I tried various strings yesterday (including Shawn's) without any luck. But when I tried it again just now it worked. I'm not exactly sure what happened, but I probably typed something wrong. Anyhow, now it works.

I am having the same error as well when I finish my code string: NSString *myString = @"Fun with Objective-C"; and hit submit. I still get errors
