View Full Version : best book for iphone/ipad programming?

Sep 5, 2012, 02:30 PM
hi, i just need a book for to create apps for both iphone/ipad. i know objective-c language and i worked for a while on it. so i'm looking for a book that can teach step by step how to create apps or teach you in a way that it shows you how an app is being created besides the informations that it have (similar to what objective-c for dummies has which teach you objective-c along side with what's happening and the info's). i want a clear straight forward book not kind of a book that only give out informations, i want "practice first"!! Thank you!:apple:

I haven't been into books for a while, since I got over that step.
But most people tend to recommand big nerd ranch guide, the one I used to use is the iOS cookbook by erica. Those are "make apps, learn stuff"-books :)

I'm sure I'm not alone in recommending "Beginning iOS 5 Development: Exploring the iOS SDK" (http://www.amazon.com/Beginning-iOS-Development-Exploring-SDK/dp/1430236051/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1346942431&sr=8-1&keywords=beginning+ios+5+development) by David Mark, Jack Nutting, and Jeff LaMarche. Also, be sure to search this forum (http://forums.macrumors.com/forumdisplay.php?f=135) as there are a number of other threads that discuss book recommendations.

the Learning Track im going for is this to gain full understanding of ios Programming

Big Nerd Ranch Obj-C book -> m.kochans Programming in Ob-c 4th edition -> BNR ios Programming -> Begining ios5 app dev in Full Color its a good start. then going to more advanced cookbooks,
