Dan and Tracey provide an in-depth coverage of iPad and iPhone development using Objective-C and XCode 4. Their professional experience in these areas is captured within this book and I have a deeper understanding of iPad and iPhone development, Objective-C, and XCode. After going through the book and implementing the examples, I am able to develop my own application for both iPhone and iPad using XCode. I would recommend this to anyone that is wanting to get into developing apps for iPhone and/or iPad that has little to now experience with Objective-C and XCode. Full Review  >

It provides an extremely accessible and approachable guide for those new to using tools such as Xcode to develop apps for iOS. As with other Head First books, the approach is extremely graphically enhanced and takes the reader through a series of hands-on tutorials. Full Review  >
