Getting Started with Instruments

Has there ever been a more powerful, but under-utilised tool than Instruments?

Instruments is a tool included with Xcode that helps you analyze, profile, and debug your live iOS app. Solve memory leaks. Visualize memory. Monitor disk, network, memory, and battery usage. You can even find zombies. πŸ§Ÿβ€β™‚οΈ

It lets you do incredible things but is also overwhelming to new developers, in which case this Ray Wenderlich tutorial can come in pretty handy.
