Something that will make my life INFINITELY easier and should be relatively easy to do for a team with your skills is to please copy ALL images to the generated output when you double click on a XIB file. I hate having all my images in the root of my project and have a subfolder "Images". The problem is in the XIB and code I reference "Images/SomeImage.png" and when I'm designing in Xcode because the files are not copied over preserving the folder structure I almost have to design with imagination.

We use A LOT of images, so keeping it neat is the name of the game.

We used to do this, but Xcode does not handle images in subfolders correctly.

If you have an image "Images/SomeImage.png" and refer to it in a xib, Xcode will reference it as "SomeImage.png", which will not work when you run your app. So we stopped syncing images in subfolders this breakage/confusion.

Marking as a dup of a bug that has more information on this.
