There aren’t too many books I own for iOS development. I’ve been programming Objective-C and Cocoa for long long time even when it wasn’t cool to do so. But with iOS, things have changed and it’s getting harder and harder to keep up with the changes.
Before I get into Programming iOS 6 review, let me first state that I have previous version, Programming iOS 5 in dead tree version. So it’s one of very rare iOS book that I own*.
Programming iOS 6 covers just about all aspect of iOS programming. It won’t bore you with “Hello World” type of contents, just straight to the point on various topics. It’s like having a buddy who you can tap on the shoulder for quick answers. I like it as an experienced developer, but this book serves beginners well as it covers fundamentals rather well.
If you’re completely new to Objective-C, I highly recommend that you go out and learn that first before diving into this book. But if you’re an experience developer diving into iOS, then this one is for you.
