Add UIActivityIndicatorView to UINavigationBar

For me it took sometime to figure out how to show activity indicator in the navigation bar. Later I found it was very simple. When you push a view to the navigation you get to play with navigationItem property on the view that is being pushed. In your viewWillAppear method you can add this code.

I have done a sample application demonstrating this code. It is based on iPhone navigation project template. In the application I have two action to start and stop the animation.

Flip Iftar Party @ Reem Al Bawadi

This year we had flip Iftar party @ Reem Al Bawadi on Jumeria Beach Road. The food was amazing and everyone enjoyed it. The best part of the party was dessert and the sheesha. For the first time I tried Turkish coffee and I liked it very much. Sorry about the low resolution pictures that was the maximum my 1G iPhone could offer.
