Although the author walks you through the steps and starts with a simple application he makes the mistake during the development of a more complex app that he does NOT need to lay out in detail all the required steps. Apperas to be written by someone who has forgotten the needs for a beginner.

Writing is OK but it is impossible to get past the fact that all of the screen captures, images and iPad interface images are so low rez taht they can not be understood at all. Large text in dialog boxes on ipad screen caps are not even understandable. As an eBook it is of little use, wish I had not purchased alectronically.
