I have written an iOS 7 boilerplate application which provides the basics of a universal iOS 7 app including networking (MKNetworkingKit), Cocoapods, Testing async network operations, theming, TextKit and dynamically sized table cells.
My hope is this boilerplate can help beginners skip the first four to six hours of creating a networking based app by providing a simple structure to expand on.
Note: The dynamic table sizing still requires work in order to polish.
Find the app here: Simple iOS 7 Networking App
Somewhat related note, MKNetworkingKit happens to have been developed by Mugunth Kumar, who also wrote iOS 7 Programming Pushing the Limits, which is probably my favorite iOS book I own.
