Bad: if you've spent a few years working as a software engineer at a good software shop, you probably already know most of what's in this book or can figure it out with a few days of experimentation.
Ugly: the following is more or less the entirety of the book's coverage of TestFlight and similar beta testing frameworks: "Evaluate these frameworks and services and see if they fit your needs."
Let me emphasize that the official subtitle of this book is fairly inaccurate. It mentions Xcode, Instruments and Build Tools as though the book is split up between these three subject areas, but in reality, a large portion of the book is about *other* tools, and how to apply them to the apps you develop.
That's not a bad thing, though. In fact, as I read this book I found myself thinking fondly of all the apps whose developers ought to give it some careful attention. (I'm looking at you, prolific creators of otherwise-pleasing content apps which all have slightly different sets of features and bugs.)
If you drifted into iOS development from life as a conventional software engineer, you may already know much of the material in this book.Read more ›
- pictures are in black&white
- pictures are so small that you can not see what's on the screen
(if you zoom, you just get a picture so blurred you can't decipher anything, and that's true even on a PC screen)
- code is basically unreadable even on a 7inch screen
and for a book that is supposed to help you discover XCode4.2 new features(screen-shots are worth thousand words),
this is just WRONG.
Hope an update will fix that so that I can review the book.
