13UIPopoverController and Modal View Controllers

So far, you have seen four ways to show a view controller’s view: setting it as the root view controller of the window, pushing it onto a UINavigationController’s stack, adding it to a UITabBarController, and presenting it modally.

In this chapter, we will look at UIPopoverController and more options for presenting modal view controllers. Some of these options are only available on the iPad, so we’ll start by making Homepwner a universal application – an application that runs natively on the iPad as well as the iPhone and iPod touch.
