The iOS 4 Developer’s Cookbook: Core Concepts and Essential Recipes for iOS Programmers

Book Description

Want to get started building applications for iPhone or iPad with Apple’s newest iOS 4 development tools? Erica Sadun’s The iOS 4 Developer’s Cookbook brings together all the expert guidance and proven code you’ll need. Completely updated through iOS 4.3, it covers the tools (Xcode 4 and Interface Builder), the language (Objective-C 2.0), and all elements common to typical iOS apps. Sadun presents single-task recipes for common iOS development tasks, including designing and organizing effective user interfaces, responding to users, supporting gestures and multitouch, working with images, accessing local data with Core Data, managing table views, and connecting to the Internet. You get cut-and-paste convenience: freely reuse any of her source code in your own applications and tweak as needed—everything’s fully documented to make it easy. Each chapter groups related tasks together, so you can jump straight to your solution, without having to identify the right class or framework first. You’ll find everything you need to jumpstart any iOS 4 project—and create high-value apps fast!
