    hi, i want to start learning how to create apps that uses the network; such as uploading/downloading pictures..etc. i have so many books for ios 6 development but none do mention networking. All of them focus on the basic stuff and maximum icloud support. are there any good books to help in the networking part of app development? also any web suggestions? (blogs, videos,..) Thank you!

    Which books do you have? Please be as specific as possible. That means: title, author and edition.

    I only have the first two of those. Do any of the other three mention web services or NSURLConnection (specifically)?

    P.S. Apress and O'Reilly are not authors but publishers. But close enough.

    "iOS Programming - The Big Nerd Ranch Guide - 3rd Edition" by Joe Conway & Aaron Hillegass covers the topic quite well, especially in Chapter 25, "Web Services and UIWebView".

    NSScreencast

    Ben Scheirman over at NSScreencast has a great overview of the AFNetworking toolkit.

    If you're thinking basic HTTP, this is probably a decent place to start just to get some working code up and running:

    NSScreencast Ep. 6: AFNetworking

    Being open source as well, AFNetworking is a great library to look at for good practices with the lower level Cocoa networking frameworks.
