Apress Beginning iPhone Development Exploring the iPhone SDK
This fantastic book is an APress title, I don’t know how they do it but APress has great authors and every APress book I get is a home run. The book explains how to use the Cocoa SDK to write iPhone apps in very clear easy to digest steps. It has a lot more detail and an easier pace than ‘iPhone in Action’. View controllers are the most important part of the SDK to get to grips with, and they are the hardest to figure out. In this title we get 200 delicious pages devoted to them, compared to just 60 in ‘iPhone in Action’. ‘Beginning iPhone Development’ only covers the SDK and Interface Builder, so it has room for some useful SDK topics you won’t find written about elsewhere like UI’s that rotate to landscape mode and localization for different countries. This is the best book for learning native iPhone development.
