If you’ve done any amount of IOS programming, you have probably found yourself digging through the view hierarchy more than once using XCODE to track down some weird mis-alignment or mysterious artifact on the screen. You’ve probably even resorted to one of the many helpful code snippets of Xcode commands to dump the hierarchy to the debugger log.
Didn’t you ever wonder why there wasn’t a nice GUI-like tool to examine the view hierarchy?
