    Well, I decided that it's time to learn a new skill, programming objective-c. My programming knowledge is very minimal, It consists of PHP, little bit of HTML, and a little bit of MySQL. What I want to do is take some JSON that is made with php and populate a iOS table view.

    here is my json.php:

    $array = array(1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10);
    $json = json_encode($array);
    echo $json;

    My only problem is, is I have no idea where to start on how to use JSONKit framework. I would prefer to use JSONKit over the other alternatives just because it seems it has more support.

    NSString *strURL = [NSString stringWithFormat:mad:""];
    NSData *dataURL = [NSData dataWithContentsOfURL:[NSURL URLWithString:strURL]];
    NSString *strResult = [[NSString alloc] initWithData:dataURL encoding:NSUTF8StringEncoding];
    NSLog(@"%@", strResult);

    I was able to print the results of the JSON page in the debug console. Now my only question is what next? I have tried to look for some tutorials online but all I could find was something more advanced Jason phraser. To advanced for my basic needs. I know my questions very vague and open to a lot of different answer, but I figured this is the place to ask these types of questions.

    Starting with iOS 5, JSON support is built-in. You sure you need to use a third-party library?

    O, if ios 5 or later has built in Json, then no. I didn't know i had that option. Ever tutorial I have found online was using a third party json library plus it seemed like more widely used, even more used then the built in json.
