Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
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 !!!
This book has one problem, which every printed material is prone to have- a few screen shots are out of date, but nothing you can't figure by google the information.
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 All iPhone books risk being out of date because the toolkit is being updated all the time.
It is new and in good quality.
I like it and try to learn programming for iphone.
I'm moving on to other iPhone developer resources. Save your money, skip this book.
