comment Strategy for on-the-fly caching of remote images with Rails 3 + Heroku?
This solution is not great for performance. If you first have to check to see if an image exists in s3 for each image, you're going to see some latency for each image, even when cached. The suggestion to pre-cache is probably a better idea.

comment iCloud data backup and restore strategy
Back ups would typically be taken care of by the user's normal device backup, but if you want it to be portable, then you'd probably need to include a save/restore function. The easiest way do do this is probably with iTunes File Sharing: raywenderlich.com/1948/…

comment How do you align other views with a UITableViewCell's textLabel?
None of the frames are valid inside of cellForRowAtIndexPath. You have to force a layout (setNeedsLayout) or use your own cell subclass so you have full control. None of this is particularly pretty :).

comment Can I detect: "Does class overload method of base class"?
This solution is favorable to checking in + initialize because it will fail to compile, rather than abort at runtime. The compilation error will tell the user exactly what to do.
