An all-in-one tutorial for planning, developing, and launching iPhone and iPad apps

The number of applications in the Apple app store is growing at a staggering rate. Want to get in the game, but don't know iOS? This book-and-DVD package will help! With even little or no prior programming experience, you can learn the code necessary to build an app by following the how-to instructions in this book-and-video combo. Comprised of clear, no-nonsense lessons, the book walks you through each tutorial and then encourages you to work through simple exercises so that you can immediately apply what you just learned.

These lessons are backed by video demonstrations on the accompanying DVD to further illustrate the instruction and drive home the main points. In addition, the book's appendices contain helpful information such as obtaining a device UDID, testing, and distributing an app and also lists common reasons why applications are rejected, so you can prepare to take precautionary measures to avoid these instances.

  • Examines Cocoa touch and the Cocoa touch framework, including using various classes in the UIKit and Foundation frameworks

A good book for beginners, but not the only book you will need.  I quite like the introduction to the Objective-c language in the appendix. Since I am new to iOS development, I decided to start with  the appendix  first and then work rough the lessons... Worked well for me that's all I can say.

This book lacks of explanations of the syntax and the actual codes. In the Try Out section there are usually a few sentences for every big block of codes. Rarely a line comment, with the exception of lesson 20 Try Out. The DVD shows you how to complete one Try Out per chapter ( only coping and pasting the codes) without explaining the reasons and the theory behind. The Dvd is good in showing you "the click and drag" without any explanation of the codes. If you have never read any 24 hour trainer book and never used Xcode, then Dvd will be surprisingly good. Use the book as a lab book then you will not be disappointed. Each TryOut is more and more progressively complex than it should be. I am still searching for a good book that explains the syntax and more explaination without jargon and more line comments. By the way, Chapter 7 should be read before chapter 6 but do the Try out in Chapter 6 first. Not a bad book.
