Xcode 4 iOS Templates Folder Location

If you found your templates from Xcode 3 missing, you should know all the templating system has been remade for Xcode 4.

After a lot of trial and error, I found out that in order to make Templates show up in the newest Xcode, 4, the best place to place my templates would be in:

~/Library/Developer/Xcode/Templates/File Templates/Cocoa Touch/

The template subfolder also needs to have the extension .xctemplate and the template variables are ow under the form ___ORGANIZATIONNAME___ instead of the old «ORGANIZATIONNAME»

I hope someone finds this info useful as I had to piece it together from several sites and forum posts 🙂
