Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have been doing mobile development with Adobe Flash IDE, Flash Builder, Titanium Studio, Phonegap... and really wanted to try something else for developing native apps, so this just came in the right moment. I was using c# only when developing backend for player.IO so I really wanted to expand my knowledge of c#. What better way to do it. I'm just starting to use this book and already it has helped me a lot.
