Great iPhone SDK with a lot of practical code walkthrough Jan. 28 2010
By Lim Boon Tiong - Published on
Format: Paperback
I read a few iPhone SDK programming books and never get to learn much because they were hard to understand for a newbie like me. To make matter worst, I am not able to develop real world applications without resorting to read and learn the video samples from Apple and other SDK sites.

I am glad that I found this book simply because it is very easy to follow. I didn't struggle as much compared to reading other iPhone dev books. The walkthrough exercises were great! The author go straight to the point and I don't have to read tons of unnecessary info before starting on the exercises. The walkthrough exercises help me to understand the concept and most importantly, I am able to develop different kinds of practical iPhone applications upon completion of each chapter. This book also covers a wide range of different topics ranging from MultiTouch, database access, debugging and simple animations.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to jump right into the iPhone programming bandwagon but don't have a clue about Objective C or the iPhone SDK.
Thumbs up !!!

makes sense Feb. 3 2010

If you are a developer and want to learn iPhone SDK, this is a book for you. Instead of teaching you how to use all kinds of tables and other UI Classes exclusively in InterfaceBuilder this book does a great job of explaining how it actually works if you just use code to create your classes. I also liked how the chapters are grouped to walk you through SDK. And App. D about Objective-C is pretty good too.
This book has one problem, which every printed material is prone to have- a few screen shots are out of date, but nothing you can't figure by google the information.

Excellant way to get started on iPhones Jan. 4 2011
By Allister Smith - Published on
Format: Paperback
A great way to learn how to develop Apps.

This is a real tutorial book. It's a hands on book. Go through the examples in Xcode and you'll learn lots.

Don't be put off with the comments about it relating to release 3, the author has provided updates at the web site. All iPhone books risk being out of date because the toolkit is being updated all the time.

out of date and bad examples Feb. 3 2010
By Charles Lawrence - Published on
Format: Paperback
Got this book a few days ago and read through the first 60 pages or so. First, there are numerous examples misspellings and bad grammar in the book. These are things the author and editor should have caught. Second, the instructions and screenshots in several places are out of date. It took several minutes of hunting around simply to find some things because the instructions are inaccurate. Finally, the first HelloWorld example application doesn't run. It keeps crashing with an error of "invalid sender".

I'm moving on to other iPhone developer resources. Save your money, skip this book.
