Is it possible to combine Storyboards with traditional nib-files? The reason I'm asking is that storyboards do not expose the AppDelegate, and if you wish to call a method in another class from the AppDelegate it's excruciatingly painful (exampel: http://www.raywenderlich.com/5138/beginning-storyboards-in-ios-5-part-1). I know it's possible to use them both separately in a single project, but how can I make them interact? I was thinking the nib-file, exposing the AppDelegate, could connect to the relevant views in the storyboard that it wants to call methods from. Am I just dreaming?
