Hi Rory,

Question on alert views and modal popups. The app I'm developing needs some kind of notification to the user asking if the screen should be reset or not. Do you think this is better handled with an alert view or a modal popup (ie. like a alert that slides up from the bottom of the screen)? If I had my choice, I think the alert looks nicer but I figured I would try and get your thoughts.

Thanks,
Paul

IMHO, I believe that the alert is much better. For me, modals are for showing other view controller (mail sending, SMS sending, settings, etc.)

Yes, I agree that the alert would be more appropriate since it is requiring only a simple yes-no answer.

Hi,

Since the action requires a screen reset which can be destructive one with context to the application, it is better to show it with a modal popup like UIActionSheet or your own.
