Book Description

Fully updated for iOS 7 and Xcode 5 and consisting of 89 in-depth chapters, the aim of this book is to teach you the skills necessary to build your own iOS 7 apps for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.

Beginning with the basics, this book provides an outline of the steps necessary to set up an iOS development environment. An introduction to the architecture of iOS 7 and programming in Objective-C is provided, followed by an in-depth look at the design of iOS applications and user interfaces.

More advanced topics such as file handling, database management, in-app purchases, graphics drawing and animation are also covered, as are touch screen handling, gesture recognition, multitasking, iAds integration, location management, local notifications, camera access and video and audio playback support. Other features are also covered including Auto Layout, Twitter and Facebook integration, event reminders, App Store hosted in-app purchase content, collection views and much more.

New features of iOS 7 are also covered, including Sprite Kit-based 2D game development, local map search and user interface animation using UIKit Dynamics.

Assuming you are ready to download the iOS 7 SDK and Xcode, have an Intel-based Mac and some ideas for some apps to develop, you are ready to get started.

5.0 out of 5 stars brilliant book for begginers 17 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am new to app development and this book covered the basics of xCode and Objective-C in enough detail to get me working confidently on my first app creation.
I recommend getting the Objective-C Essentials book as well as a companion to this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thorough and comprehensive 9 Sept. 2014
By Antona
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book contains 89 short chapters, each dealing precisely with a single subject and each illustrated with short stand-alone example app. The apps take usually about 15 minutes to code so you can have a working example to experiment with after minimal effort. The fact that the examples are stand-alone allows you to jump about the book as you like and select the chapters you're interested in. The explanations are clear and easy to follow. The author does't waste anyone's time sharing his little jokes or philosophy on life but concentrates on teaching IOS 7 App development and I think that he does it very well.
