    I am frustrated right now. I went to revert my project to something else. Unfortunately, for some reason, Xcode's most recent snapshots are just copies of another snapshot that was taken a few days ago. I've changed the code since then. I decided I'd restore anyway.

    Bottom line: Xcode's snapshot feature SUCKS. I never thought I'd think so, because it worked just fine on another project. I think I'll file a bug report with Apple.

    Snapshots are a poor substitute for source control. Start using a source management repository. Xcode makes it trivial to use a local git repository, and if you have another Mac running 10.9 you can even set up Xcode server on a remote Mac.

    I like to use BitBucket, its free and Xcode works perfectly with it (as it does with ANY git server...)

    You need to use real source code control. I also use BitBucket. It's free for projects with a small number of developers. I like knowing that I have offsite storage. I use it with customers and they can get the source and build it themselves. This saves me quite a bit of time so I don't have to do builds for the customer.
