VPPLocation Library for iOS simplifies the task of retrieving the user location and reverse geocoder info about it.
In order to use it you should implement:
VPPLocationControllerLocationDelegateto receive updates of the user location.
VPPLocationControllerGeocoderDelegateto receive updates of information about user location, such as city name or address (
Once implemented just add your class as delegate, using the methods addLocationDelegate: and addGeocoderDelegate:. Now your class will be happily working :)
Geocoding feature is adapted to both iOS 4 and 5. If the device is running iOS 4, MKReverseGeocoder class will be used. If the device is running iOS 5, CLGeocoder new class will be used. In any case the placemark object will be instance of MKPlacemark.
This project contains a sample application using it. Just open the project in XCode, build it and run it.

- Library geocoding adapted to both iOS 4 and 5. If device is running iOS 4, MKReverseGeocoder class will be used. If device is running iOS 5, CLGeocoder new class will be used. In any case the placemark will be a MKPlacemark.
- Removed all references to MKReverseGeocoder and MKPlacemark and updated all code to use new CLGeocoder instead. This class appeared in iOS 5.
- Also included a tiny CLPlacemark category to add a new property, address, which will return a formatted address string.
