I want to love UICollectionView, I really do. But it continues to give me reasons to complain about it instead. I was working on some iOS 7-ish UI in our yet-to-be-announced project and trying to use the backgroundView property of a few collection views. To make the app feel more “alive”, I started occasionally updating this backgroundView to better reflect the current state of the app. Except, it just wasn’t working!
