Solution approach for the local file caching of the images. #5

As you commented on your code, there is a problem with the file caching mechanism because at the initialization of the table when the image is already in the file cache it will be loaded synchronously and we will get it immediately from -addLazyImageForCell:withIndexPath:. and at that point the cell has not been hooked up to an index-path yet, and so the image won't be displayed.

I solve this problem looking in the filesystem for the image if it's not found in the memory cache, probably is not the best solution but it do the work. Hope it help.

- (UIImage*)cachedImageWithURL:(NSURL*)url
    NSString *key = [self keyForURL:url];;
    UIImage *img  = [self.images objectForKey:key];

    if (img == nil) 
        NSString *path = [self.cacheDirectory stringByAppendingPathComponent:key];
        img = [UIImage imageWithContentsOfFile:path];

        if (img != nil)
            [self.images setObject:img forKey:key];

    return img;

Closing this because the code is now deprecated.
