I wanted to like this book because the price is right, and I thought it might fill a void while I wait for the updated Big Nerd Ranch Guide to iOS programming to come out. And I learned a couple things from it. But it's cheap for a reason. It doesn't go into enough depth to really get you developing apps, and it's riddled with grammatical errors. It's a lot harder to follow than some of the free tutorials on the web (like the CodeWithChris videos), but it's not as clear and authoritative as the very extensive Apple documentation (just Google "iOS developer library"). Bottom line, if you need a book to fill that gap, go for one of the pricier but more complete guides.
This book takes something that is extremely complex... breaks it down into small bite size bits that are not only easy to understand, but also to remember and apply. When you work in a large company, you will often encounter massive and complex networks composed of multi-layer protocols, different devices, and in various locations. It can be a real challenge to set up, manage, and troubleshoot such complicated networks. Moreover, as technologies improve, networks should also evolve. Implementing changes to a complicated network is usually difficult.
This book is great for app developers who are new to iOS. Introduces you to iOS app development and really explains all the concepts and ideas around it. This book has helped me to comprehend code, format and Apple's most mainstream structures. The examples are super simple so that you can clearly see the API's in action without having to extrapolate them from superfluous logic. Each topic is fully explained with all the essential information and focuses on the basics of the platform. A good thing for beginners. Very much worth reading!
iOS is indeed a wonderful program that is being used predominantly by apple users. It has a lot of advancements as it tries to innovate everyday bringing new features and styles that aims to make it convenient for users and programmers as well. This book allows readers to learn IOS the fastest and easy way with topics that are explained in a simple manner
I'm a complete beginner and this book is very helpful to me. Comparing to its price, this book provides way more value than the cost. The pictures and links in the book are very helpful too. Five stars
I am really curious on programing and decided to learn about it to not stay ignorant on this kind. Simple and clear that is easy for us beginners to understand what the author wants his reader to get. Glad that I found this book. Thanks for this one.
Whenever a new version of iOS comes out, this is the series I always come back to. The examples are super simple so that you can clearly see the API's in action without having to extrapolate them from superfluous logic. I also really like that the author filters out the new API's which makes picking up new functionality super simple. This book is a tremendous asset to anyone looking to easily pick up or expand upon their iOS knowledge
It's good book to start with. Lots of information, to the point and easy to follow. Especially the step by step guide with concrete examples I could try and play with on my own made it lot easier. The course gives you a real good overview of the most important parts of IOS and helps to understand how to use it for your own projects. While the book is a quick read and complete in providing in depth explanations, I like how the author was able to do this consistently with their other books. I will continue to use this book as my go to reference guide whenever I need a refresher in IOS development.
