Excellent book, guiding you through the process of app creation without C/Cocoa
on 3 May 2010
However, this book teaches you how to create apps using web scripting languages and then compile them into Object C using PhoneGap so that you can package your apps for sale in iTunes. PhoneGap offers this same functionality for several other platforms, too. The book is brief and if you have any experience coding dynamic websites, you will get through the examples in no time. The real areas this book stands out are 1) showing you how to add distinctive iPhone styling and gloss to your apps and 2) guiding you through the less-than-intuitive process of compiling them with PhoneGap.
All in all, it's a very clearly written book and all you need to create native C apps without knowing a single line of C.
