comment Downloading and parsing json in swift
You should not use NSData:contentsOfURL as it is a blocking call. Use the NSURLConnectionDelegate protocol as eXhausted shows above. Alternatively you can use the newer NSURLSession api to download data. Take a look at the docs for examples.

comment Get the number of lines required for UILabel from NSString?
This solution is wasteful, considering how many times this method is called when rendering a table. I'd also wager that UILabel is using boundingRectWithSize:options:attributes: to figure out its frame anyway.
