Hi, should I be able to compare NSDate object simply by using < > operators ?
i.e. todays date > yesterdays date would equal true
No, use the NSDate compare methods.
Be aware that NSDate objects contain the date AND time so two NSDate objects will only be the same if the date and time are idential (down to sub-second granularity).
If you are really interested in the date only you will have to play some games before doing the comparison.
