Review

" The authors instill good programming practices throughout, examining not just how to write code, but why to write it in a particular way... " (BCS, March 2013)

From the Back Cover

WHY SETTLE FOR GOOD MOBILE APPS WHEN YOU CAN BUILD EXTRAORDINARY ONES?

iOS is the hottest development platform around, and now iOS 6 adds a new, deeper dimension to explore. A serious book for serious programmers, iOS 6 Programming Pushing the Limits takes you beyond the basics to reveal advanced iOS 6 features and programming techniques not covered in most other development books. Long-time mobile developers Rob Napier and Mugunth Kumar share everything they know about creating killer apps for all Apple mobile devices. Including how to:

  • Support the new iPhone 5
  • Interact with the Objective-C runtime
  • Secure your data with Security Services
  • Create amazing animations
  • Maximize your impact with Core Text
  • Make the most of collection views
  • Tune your application’s performance and squash the bugs
  • Create high performance apps for any RESTful web service
  • Implement super-fast caching in regions with spotty network connectivity
  • Unlock the power of Core Foundation

Not a book for the timid, or for novice developers, iOS 6 Programming Pushing the Limits takes you deep inside the latest iOS version and helps you get to grips with powerful tools to push the limits of your mobile development skills.

Based on the title of this book I was expecting to learn some tricks about hardcore iOS programming that would help me overcome difficult problems. However, most of the book is about fairly entry level iOS programming. A lot of the materials can be learned by doing a google search.

I was particularly disappointed with the chapters on iCloud sync - this chapter did not offer any insight into Core Data iCloud sync which is one of the touted advances in iOS6. Nor did it go over any of the pitfalls of implementing. It was obvious that the authors did not have any first hand experience with implementing iCloud sync for Core Data in any of their launched projects.

Many programming texts on iOS regurgitate the basics (that are all freely available form Apple or Stanford). This book is an obviously experienced guy relating specifics of how he does certain things. As an experienced programmer that is exactly what I wanted. It saved me time and therefore money. I bought the iOS 5 version of this book, found it good value, then bought the iOS 6 version. Although much is repeated I found it worth the money just for the updates. I'll buy the io7 version when he brings it out. Good value book.

This is a phenomenal book. Great coverage of drawing/QuartzCore. The sample code is great. I highly recommend to people who want some in-depth coverage of topics that are given coverage here.

I owned iOS5 ptl and i couldnt wait to get the new one. This book is a corner stone for understanding a lot of the details needed to take your iOS coding skills to the next level. I gave this book to a couple of young iOS developers at our company and they were as pleased as I am with its content.

Lives up to promise of the WHY along with the HOW. Stays on an advanced level. A little thin on what all it covers but what it covers it covers. Just wish it covered more.
