    New to icoding. Can someone please guide me how to start my application from where I had exited earlier.


    1) I opened my sample application
    2) Entered some comments into the textarea.
    3) Exit the application

    4) Not if I open my applicaiton I want to see the data which I entered previously.

    Thanks for help.

    You'll want to save your data (using NSUserDefaults is pretty easy) in the applicationWillTerminate: method of your application delegate and then restore it in the applicationDidFinishLaunching: method of the same.

    check out the DrillDownSave sample.

    Though, the TextView might be a bit trickier. I'd recommending looking for any events that execute just before the app closes and then save into NSUserDefaults or sqlite
