NSDate and NSDateFormatter

Hey Jay, Great Idea. Here’s a little snippet of code that grabs the current date, then using a couple of NSDateFormatter methods converts it to the current time.

<code class="language- ">NSDate *today = [NSDate date];
NSDateFormatter *formatter = [[NSDateFormatter alloc]init];
[formatter setDateFormat:@&quot;HH:mm&quot;];
NSString *myString =[formatter stringFromDate:today];
NSLog(@&quot;%@&quot;,myString);</code>
