Question not working or giving helpful hint

I copied the code from the video to make the appearance and the simulator will not give me the right answer. I used:

UINavigationBar* appearance = [UINavigationBar appearance]; and the hint is something that is not really relevant

Remove the space between asterisk and the pointer "appearance" and add a space between the asterisk and type "UINavigationBar". It's a quirk with the Treehouse Code Challenge checker because it's looking specifically for the word UINavigationBar, but with the asterisk placed as you have above, the strings do not match perfectly, so it counts it as wrong. It's also convention to append the asterisk to the pointer, not the type. In the end, it should look like this:

UINavigationBar *appearance = [UINavigationBar appearance];

Happy Coding! =)
