I faced this problem today while authenticating username and password using following method using iOS sdk.

How can i check the request time out problem using following code. 

NSString *userName = @"Nick";
NSString *pwd = @"********";
User *user = [userService authenticate:userName password:pwd]; 
NSLog(@"userName is %@" , user.userName);
NSLog(@"sessionId is %@" ,  user.sessionId);

We have added the request time-out detection in our latest SDK. 
You can download the latest SDK from our github repo.
App42 SDK throws exceptions in case of wrong parameter like null, empty or no internet connection or request time-out etc.
You should always call APIs inside try-catch block as follows:
        NSString *userName = @"User Name";
        NSString *password = @"******";
        User *user = [userService authenticateUser:userName password:password];
        NSLog(@"User Name=%@",user.userName);
        NSLog(@"Email = %@",;
        NSLog(@"SessionId = %@",user.sessionId);
    @catch (App42Exception *exception)
        NSLog(@"Exception = %@",[exception reason]);
        NSLog(@"HTTP error Code = %d",[exception httpErrorCode]);
        NSLog(@"App Error Code = %d",[exception appErrorCode]);
        NSLog(@"User Info = %@",[exception userInfo]);

thanks rajeev :)
rajeev, just a small suggession. when we pass wrong username password to authenticate method. It still returns User object with blank data. Instead it should returns "nil" object.
