A practical guide to iPhone application development with the

Objective-C programming language.


The iPhone is a sophisticated device, and now that Objective-C is the

one and only language approved by Apple for application

development, mastering it is the key to unlocking its awesome

potential as a mobile computing platform. Objective-C's concise, rich

syntax and feature set, when matched with the iPhone SDK and the

powerful XCode environment, offers developers from any background

a smooth transition into mobile app development for the iPhone.

Objective-C for the iPhone is a hands-on tutorial that leads readers

from their first line of Objective-C code through the process of

building native apps for the iPhone using the latest version of the SDK.

It teaches how to avoid the most common pitfalls, while exploring the

expressive Objective-C language through numerous example projects.

While the book assumes knowledge of an IDE, no previous experience

with Objective-C, the iPhone SDK, or mobile computing is required.
