PrettyTimestamp

An NSDate Category that returns human readable, pretty timestamps between two dates.

Now available with custom formatting thanks to Sam Dods

Examples

All returned strings are in lower case and plural / singular are handled

"just now"

"1 minute ago"

"3 months ago"

"over a year ago"

Usage

Automatically orders dates for you so no need to worry about which is earliest. Just call one of the three category methods and you're done :).

Questions

Send me a tweet at @jonhocking - I'd love to hear how you get on with this.
