Xcode Error – Could not launch app. No such file or directory.

Xcode has stopped to run application. Xcode shows error: Could not launch application. No such file or directory.
What to do and how to solve this problem?

iOS fonts

I saw many times code of different applications where developers use only [UIFont systemFontOfSize:12.0] to set font in iOS application.

But there are a lot of fonts available in IOS starting from 3.0 which allow to customize text in application. iOS 5 has even more fonts.

These fonts can be set easy using [UIFont fontWithName:@”AmericanTypewriter” size:12.0];
