This second edition provides a comprehensive introduction to Xcode and the major types of apps for the iPhone and iPad. It includes an appendix on using the Swift language, which is a good review or introduction to Swift for experienced developers. The app examples are designed to illustrate the use of Xcode and Swift for common features such as using multiple platforms and adaptive layout, table views, data persistence, background processing, touches and gestures, graphics and animation, device motion and maps, using the camera, and localization. I used Xcode 7.3.1, with Swift 2.The book needs better editing. I kept notes of errors in iBooks for all chapters, and ended up with 114 errors. Errors include: -- Problems in formatting (for example, some new code is not shown in a bold font). -- Wrong keypress instructions, such as Command-3 instead of Option-Command-3 to bring up the Identity Inspector in Xcode. -- Use of println() instead of print() in some cases.Swift no longer uses println(). -- General typos, missing parenthesis or brace, and run-on words -- Several language operators and syntax expressions will be deprecated in Swift 3, but still work in Swift 2. These may not have been deprecated for the early Swift 2 version that the authors used. For example: ..The -- operator should be changed to -= 1, and the ++ operator should be changed to += 1 .. No longer use strings for an action argument, such as: action: "showLanguagePopover". Instead, use: action: #selector(showLanguagePopover) .. No strings for selector argument, such as selector: "applicationWillEnterForeground:", Instead, use: selector: #selector(UIApplicationDelegate.applicationWillEnterForeground(_:)), ..
