4.0 out of 5 stars Clarity amongst complexity 10 April 2010
By RAF
Format:Paperback
In a notoriously difficult area this book stands out. If you are serious about Symbian development, the real benefit I found was in its constant referral to practical case studies. Many developers are comfortable with data caging but for more complex applications creating a properly defined set of private directories enhances both security and efficiency. An industry veteran, I particularly liked Heath's view of where future development paths might lead.
