    Hi ya, I'm new to iOS device development, well to development as a whole really.

    Had been developing a simple app with sounds to practice (on Xcode 3.?.?) and was about to do an even simpler one on Xcode 4...

    However now I have two options with check boxes:

    Use Core Data
    Include Unit Tests

    I've done a search on here for Core Data and it returned no results, is search broken?

    Also Googled, and I'm still not sure it answers my question, which is, for simple apps with two views, do I need 1 or 2 or none of these boxes checked?

    Core data: Typically data is erased from working memory when the app exits finally. Core Data is one way to persistently store data before the exit and to retrieve it after the app is restarted.

    Unit test: Used to verify the behavior of part of your code and to execute a routine that will input data into your methods and check the output. Errors in expected behavior will be flagged.

    Chances are you won't need those just yet.
