iPad iOS 5 Development Essentials

Developing iPad Applications with the iOS 5 SDK

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

This iOS 5 edition of iPad Development Essentials contains 58 chapters of in-depth information on the development of apps for the iPad fully updated for use with the iOS 5 SDK.
The aim of this book is to teach you the skills necessary to build your own apps for the iPad. Beginning with the basics, this book provides an overview of the iPad hardware and the architecture of iOS 5. An introduction to programming in Objective-C is provided followed by an in-depth look at the design of iPad applications and user interfaces. More advanced topics such as file handling, database management, graphics drawing and animation are also covered, as are touch screen handling, gesture recognition, multitasking, iAds integration, location management, local notifications, maps, split views, camera access and video playback support.
New iOS 5 specific features are also covered in detail including page view controller implementation, the UIDocument class, iCloud based storage, Storyboard user interface design, automatic reference counting, Twitter integration and image filtering with Core Image.
iPad iOS 5 Development Essentials takes a modular approach to the subject of iPad application development with each chapter covering a self contained topic area. This makes the book both an easy to follow learning aid and an excellent reference resource.

Customer Reviews

Mostly good...

I think it's largely good. Except that the chapter on master detail application is very hard to follow. The default codes don't match the actual.

Not applicable

Xcode (the IDE) changed, and this book no longer describes how to use it. Xcode wants an enormous amount of information to set up a project, and the Hello World application cannot be done with the instructions here. The book is obsolete.
