Sadun teaches each new concept and technique through robust code that is easy to reuse and extend. This isn’t just cut-and-paste: Using her examples, Sadun fully explains both the “how” and “why” of effective iOS 5 development.

 

Sadun’s tested recipes address virtually every major area of iOS development, from user interface design to view controllers, gestures and touch, to networking and security.

  • Designing and customizing interfaces with Interface Builder and Objective-C
  • Organizing apps with view controllers, views, and animations featuring the latest Page View controllers and custom containers
  • Making the most of touch and gestures—including custom gesture recognizers
  • Building and using controls from the ground up
  • Working with Core Image and Core Text
  • Implementing fully featured Table View edits, reordering, and custom cells
