iOS App Delegate — the controller of controllers

For some this may seem obvious, but if you’re still getting used to this Model View Controller (MVC) design pattern and wondering where the App Delegate fits in…

I found it helpful to think of it as the controller of controllers.  For example, using AppDelegate on app load to initialize app and pass control among view controllers is a way to determine at launch time which device model and iOS version and present a specific view for that configuration.
