This book is an excellent starting point for anyone looking to start developing web applications and dedicated iPhone websites. Simple to follow, well laid out and with links to all the major resources required to produce your own apps this book really couldn't do a lot more. With only an intermediate knowledge of XHTML and CSS I was able to develop some effective sites. Highly recommended.
I began working through this book and though the scripts produced the simulated ipod screens there is no specific guidance concerning the type of tools that could be used to create the web pages on the Macintosh. iWeb is not an options and though XCode, IB and Dashcode have all the elements to develop for the iPod they all require a considerable learning curve. I thought that the HTML route could be an easyier option, hence purchasing the book. It is with a little disappointment that I have to give the book a moderate rating.
