macrumors newbie

to many requests in objective-c, please help

Hi there, I'm developing that is grabbing jpegs from parse then placing them inside of a tableview. But whenever I scroll through the table view it lags. I have figured out that this lagging is because I'm sending to many requests.

What I would like to do is send one request when the app launches, download the images then place them in the UITableView. Here is the code where the problem is occurring:

- (UITableViewCell *)tableView:(UITableView *)tableView cellForRowAtIndexPath:(NSIndexPath *)indexPath object:(PFObject *)object {
    static NSString *CellIdentifier = @"cell";
    feedCell *cell = [tableView dequeueReusableCellWithIdentifier:CellIdentifier];
    if (cell == nil) {
        cell = [[feedCell alloc] initWithStyle:UITableViewCellStyleSubtitle reuseIdentifier:CellIdentifier];
    // Add the user's name
    cell.userName.text = [object objectForKey:@"name"];
    // Add the amount of likes
    cell.likes.text = [ NSString stringWithFormat:@"%@", [object objectForKey:@"Likes"]];

    PFFile *thumbnail = [object objectForKey:@"imageFile"];
    PFImageView *pfimg = [[PFImageView alloc] initWithFrame:CGRectMake(30, 27, 260, 260)];
//this is where the problem is happening:

    [thumbnail getDataInBackgroundWithBlock:^(NSData *data, NSError *error) {
        if (!error) {
            UIImage *image = [UIImage imageWithData:data];
            pfimg.image = image;
            [pfimg loadInBackground];
            NSLog(@"No Error");
            NSLog(@"Error: %@",error);
    cell.selectionStyle = UITableViewCellSelectionStyleNone;
    [cell addSubview:pfimg];
    return cell;
thank you so much!
