Awesome, thanks for this so useful book
This book surpassed my high expectations within the first two chapters of the book. This in an invaluable resource for anyone that is in any way related to app development. I know that it has sent me back to the drawing board in a few areas and honestly, I am excited about that fact because it will make my apps even better. The writing and layout is engaging and peppered with appreciable humor. I flew through this book and I will definitely refer back to it frequently. Excellent work, Scott!!
Very, very impressed.
I'm not even half way through the book and I just had to stop to come back and write a review. I'm very impressed. It all makes perfect sense. The book is very well laid out and is feature-rich with content. Very interactive. It's great and it looks great. It's nice to see what Scott takes about with good UI and UX design is carried over into the design of the book; evident that he knows what he's talking about, and practices what he preaches.
