A good book to learn about iOS programming.,
This review is from: The Complete Idiot's Guide to iPad and iPhone App Development (Kindle Edition)
I have read a few other books about iphone/iPad programming prior to this one, so I had an understanding before I started this book.
If you are a beginner, then it guides you through the early chapters, than it tells you what to do, but doesn't hand your hand and relies on what you learnt in the early chapters. This is a great way of testing that the knowledge sticks.
My one criticism with this book, is that it then goes into downloading feeds from Twitter. I really cannot stand Twitter and the way every single company is on there to be perceived as "cool". I don't see the point of it, and I would have preferred if they used something else to demonstrate the use of the features of iOS.
But, if you are a twitter fan, then go for it, because it could be useful for you.
