Lesson 7 - When a single screen isn't enough - Navigation in iOS
In the previous lesson, Don't reinvent the wheel, use CocoaPods, we learned to work with CocoaPods, the package manager making the development for iOS devices easier.
In the apps we've created so far, one screen was enough. However, real applications probably couldn't do without multiple screens. That's why we're going to have a look at how to create multiple pages (controllers), how to navigate to them and how to return back.
For the navigation to work, we first need a Navigation Controller and then we
