Stuck on 1st code challenge :(

I'm trying to pass the first code challenge but it is not taking my code, I was forced to cheat on stackoverflow and still won't take any of the following lines I tried...

NSString* welcomeMessage= @"Welcome to Life Leveler";
NSString* welcome= @"Hello";
NSString* welcome = @ "Hello";
NSString *welcome= @"Hello";
NSString* myString= @"testing";   <- direct copy from stackoverflow

Ok I think this code challenge is broken, I just encountered the same test in the "Classes and Objects" stage

- (IBAction)buttonPressed:(UIButton *)sender {
    NSString *myString = @"My name is Leon";
    self.predictionLabel.text = @"Definately yes";
    self.predictionLabel.text = myString;

The above code works in the test app view, however NSString *myString = @"My name is Leon";

Does not work in the code challenge.

Leon Gaban The instructions on the very first code challenge say: "Create a string named 'treehouse' with a value of 'Treehouse'."

Oh thanks!

/faceplam... I just remember hearing from the video go make a string, I just missed the instructional copy.

Liking the course otherwise :)

Hey Leon,

I had trouble with this at first too:

Directions say do this: create a new string called aString that contains the text "Objective-C is fun".

The code challenge is setup to already encompass most of the other variables so all you need to do is create the string to pass the challenge.

NSString *aString = @"Objective-C is fun";

Should do the trick.
