Programming iOS 4

Request Review copy

Sebastopol, CA—Get a solid grounding in all the fundamentals of Cocoa Touch, and avoid problems during iPhone and iPad app development. With Programming iOS 4 (O'Reilly Media, $49.99 USD), you'll dig into Cocoa and learn how to work effectively with Objective-C and Xcode. This book covers iOS 4 in a rigorous, orderly fashion—ideal whether you're approaching iOS for the first time or need a reference to bolster existing skills.

Author Matt Neuburg explains the impetus for the book, saying, "The book is aimed primarily at the intelligent reader who may know something about programming but has never programmed for iPhone before. Without a clear understanding of the basic linguistic and framework underpinnings of the iPhone API, you'll eventually be flailing. This book trains the attentive student into a knowledgeable, aware iPhone programmer, from the bottom up."

  • Learn Objective-C language details and object-oriented programming concepts
  • Understand the anatomy of an Xcode project and all the stages of its lifecycle
  • Grasp key Cocoa concepts such as relationships between classes, receiving events, and model-view-controller architecture
  • Know how views are managed, drawn, composited, and animated
  • Delve into Cocoa frameworks for sound, video, sensors, maps, and more
  • Touch on advanced topics such as threading and networking
  • Obtain a thorough grounding for exploring advanced iOS features on your own
