I am incredibly confused, and If I am doing anything not according to the book I deserve a big slap in the face for moaning about this.
I am adding all the code from page 247 to AppDelegate.m, and as soon as I run the app in iOS simulator I get a SIGABRT error in Main.m:

Although Xcode 7 doesn’t contain Empty application project, I even downloaded it online just to check if that was the problem. The application didn’ t work with an Empty project or single view.
It appears that the app has a problem with this statement if it helps, although it’s only the third one I can get the application to launch if I comment out all code including/following this statement:
I would appreciate a fast response as I have been reading this book on and off for years and I finally want to finish it, and I don’t want to have to put it down again!!
