Everything you need to know to start creating native applications for the iPhone and iPod Touch

The iPhone SDK and the Xcode tools are the official Apple tools used for creating native iPhone applications. This information-packed book presents a complete introduction to the iPhone SDK and the Xcode tools, as well as the Objective-C language that is necessary to create these native applications. Solid coverage and real-world examples walk you through the process for developing mobile applications for the iPhone that can then be distributed through Apple's iTunes Application store.

The hands-on approach shows you how to develop your first iPhone application while getting you acquainted with the iPhone SDK and the array of Xcode tools. A thorough tutorial on the features and syntax of the Objective-C language helps you get the most out of the iPhone SDK, and an in-depth look at the features of the iPhone SDK enables you to maximize each of these features in your applications.

  • Provides an introductory look at how the iPhone SDK and Xcode tools work with the Objective-C language to create native iPhone applications
  • Familiarizes you with the latest version of the iPhone SDK and the newest Xcode tools that ship with Snow Leopard
  • Walks you through developing your first iPhone applications
  • Focuses on the features and syntax of the Objective-C language so that you can get the most out of the iPhone SDK

5.0 out of 5 stars Great iPhone SDK with a lot of practical code walkthrough Jan. 28 2010
By Lim Boon Tiong - Published on Amazon.com
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 !!!

4.0 out of 5 stars makes sense Feb. 3 2010
By Y. Dolinsky - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellant way to get started on iPhones Jan. 4 2011
By Allister Smith - Published on Amazon.com
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars out of date and bad examples Feb. 3 2010
By Charles Lawrence - Published on Amazon.com
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.
