when it comes to running the POD command I just get usage, commans and options, not analyzing dependencies help!

When I run the 'pod' command it doesn't create the new cocoapods photobombers file. all I get is this in terminal. I didn't forget to change the directory of terminal to /Users/alexmacleod/Desktop/Photo\ Bombers

Hey Alex! I had the same problem. Follow the tutorial exactly and when you are prompted to enter

$ pod

in the terminal, instead enter:

$ pod install

This should work and you should see the xcworkspace file created in the project directory. Then complete the tutorial. If this doesn't work, try starting fresh by deleting the Example Xcode project, uninstalling CocoaPods and starting the tutorial over again. You can uninstall CocoaPods in the Terminal by the following:

$ gem uninstall cocoapods

Hope this helps!
