How do I debug iOS app crashes?

Take good look at any openStack messages for crashes at start up. I have had to move certain things into a preOpenStack handler which seems to work better on iOS.
As is the standard for debugging I first look at startup scripts and then move right to I/O scripts and then to the creating, editing and deleting of objects and lastly to complex storage of info schemes.

I do a systematic commenting out of handlers and try again when converting desktop apps to iOS.
