I'm throwing together an NSArray, within which I would like to add descriptions that are about a paragraph long. To my knowledge NSString is not the best way to store this information. What would you use?

Why not?

If the intent is to store text and attributes, maybe NSAttributedString (http://developer.apple.com/library/ios/#documentation/Cocoa/Reference/Foundation/Classes/NSAttributedString_Class/Reference/Reference.html). But you didn't ask about attributes or formatting, so that's just a guess.

If the intent is to have mutable text, maybe NSMutableString. And you didn't mention mutability or editability, so that's another guess.

Otherwise I'm with dejo: Why not NSString? Who's been bad-mouthing the mild-mannered yet unprepossessing NSString, and where did you read these vile accusations?
