Oh, man, if only the designs I got were this simplistic and only used standard controls with the standard look and feel.

This is a very interesting start, but it's a long long way from being able to even represent in a simple layout what I am asked to do on a regular basis as an iOS dev.

Maybe combine this with a PaintCode back-end and add markup for layout behaviors?

"Design hubris" is such a common problem for mobile/front end developers and the source of so much wasted time I'm surprised it's not talked about more commonly. Shit's expensive, man!

I am thankful that these days I get to work with talented designers who know what a UITableView is and understand the limitations of the medium.

It's also funny when the design has some short placeholder text somewhere. Then the actual real text ends up being longer and won't fit there, or will look like crap.
