Beginning iPhone Development delivers a clear picture of the entire development process from registering as an iPhone developer through creation of complete applications. There is a wealth of examples illustrating each feature of the iPhone. The authors did an excellent job of demonstrating "best practice" coding methodology throughout the book. You would be hard pressed to find a better guide to creating software for the iPhone. -- Aaron Basil, iDev2.com
Dave Mark has always been the king of Mac programming authors, and now he's proven to be the reigning king for books on iPhone development!
"Beginning iPhone Development" is the definitive guide for iPhone development, and anyone aspiring to develop for the iPhone should get this invaluable reference -- Brian Greenstone, President & CEO, Pangea Software, Inc.
People ask me again and again about how to get started in iPhone development, but I never had a very good answer for them until now. Dave and Jeff's book starts at the beginning in clear English, making sure you understand the fundamentals with many large illustrations. From there, they progress into key concepts such as the MVC pattern and ImageBuilder fundamentals. Additionally, I find myself flipping back to it as a reference guide--the plethora of code samples make it a must-have. -- Steve Demeter, Creator of "Trism" and owner of Demiforce LLC
Starting with an overview of the technology, how to approach the device, the authors lead us straight into the heart of iPhone development. As you progress, you'll learn more about various layout engines and view managers, as well as the more meaty topics like accelerometer and GPS APIs. This book is a must-have for anyone interested in getting started quickly and efficiently with iPhone development! -- Chris Pelsor, Manager, Tarantell:Hybrid
If you're planning on coding for the iPhone, start here. Dave and Jeff know their stuff and also know how to explain it. I was amazed how much stuff they cover, from Hello World through analyzing user gestures. Not only do they cover the fun stuff like playing with the camera, they cover real-world development issues like localization. I learned a huge amount from them -- Mark Dalrymple, Co-founder, CocoaHeads, and Principal Author, Advanced Mac OS X Programming
