Set up an NSTimer to set the text property of the UILabel.

-(void) revealTimer:(NSTimer *)inTimer {
 if ( ++mIndex < [mFullString length] ) {
  mLabel.text = [mFullString substringToIndex:mIndex];
 } else {
  mLabel.text = mFullString;
  [inTimer invalidate];
 }
}

start it up with something like this:

-(void) revealString:(NSString *)inString {
 mIndex = 0;
 mLabel.text = "";
 mFullString = [inString retain];
 [NSTimer scheduledTimerWithTimeInterval:0.125 target:self selector:@selector(revealTimer:) userInfo:nil repeats:YES];
}

be sure not to leak mFullString as the above does, and store the timer if you may need to invalidate it.
