5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent introduction!, February 13, 2009
This review is from: iPhone in Action: Introduction to Web and SDK Development (Paperback)
If you have a desire to create an application for the iPhone or iPod Touch, this book is a great starting point. It covers development of both web-based applications and those built using the iPhone Software Development Kit (SDK). Very importantly, it also gives you the information you need to decide between which way you want to develop your application. Need access to dynamic data? You might be better off with a web app. Need to use the iPhone's accelerometer or GPS? You'll need to build your app using the SDK.

Once you have decided how you want to go, the authors provide good tutorials for getting into either method of development. I have done more web development than programming so the web portions of the book were kind of a breeze for me. Once I got into the SDK portions, I slowed down and took more time on the tutorials. With the help of this book I have got myself to the point where I understand the basics of object-oriented programming, Objective-C, and how to use the SDK and Xcode to build simple applications. I'm ready to build my own apps and explore more of what I can do.
