Easily add a delete action into your UITableViews

Adding a row delete action is really easy in iOS by using these delegates:

// Override to support conditional editing of the table view.
// This only needs to be implemented if you are going to be returning NO
// for some items. By default, all items are editable.
- (BOOL)tableView:(UITableView *)tableView canEditRowAtIndexPath: (NSIndexPath *)indexPath {
     // Return YES if you want the specified item to be editable.
    return YES;

// Override to support editing the table view.
- (void)tableView:(UITableView *)tableView commitEditingStyle:(UITableViewCellEditingStyle)editingStyle forRowAtIndexPath:(NSIndexPath *)indexPath {
    if (editingStyle == UITableViewCellEditingStyleDelete) {
        //add code here for when you hit delete
