So you need to create that old style look in an app, maybe because it is a legacy code and your client needs this because of approved style guides and new ones do not exist for IOS7 yet?
Then do not despair, it is easier than you think. I used appearance for UINavigationBar to set up the basics.
Then you need to make sure all the views are not offset by 64pixels down. It is again very simple, just force the inset to be used for non transparent navigation bar too. I call this in viewDidLoad and viewWillAppear.
Absolutely amazing news and cannot express how exited I’m, application we worked very hard for our client has been picked as Editor’s choice just at the moment when Olympics ceremony to be started. Download while it is hot!
Downloading images from Url is very common task in iOS apps. It is however important to limit the amount of threads being used as otherwise it gets pretty heavy on the CPU and whole device can be easily clogged up.

Here it is on GitHub, enjoy and happy coding!
