Already on the book cover, there is the phrase "From Xcode to App Store". The book discusses many details about developing for iOS, but also have more basic things like installing and configuration of XCode. It's noteworthy that early in the book, he also explains things that are really boring, but they are necessary as well, creating developer's certificate (required to climb an app to the App Store) , test applications on authorized devices , and more things.
Then begins the practical part with good examples. The author also addresses the easy way the diagram of an iOS application, network usage , data manipulation via WebService. Also explains how to use sensors and devices which are supported for each type of sensor, such as bluetooth, microphone, accelerometer, GPS, camera, etc. .
At the end of the book , is also addressed important points like integration with iCloud , twitter / facebook and other social networks, as well as distribute their applications to the store.
Of all the books I have read about developing for iOS, this was certainly the best :) Full Review >
