Better and Bigger than the previous one.,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: iOS Programming: The Big Nerd Ranch Guide (3rd Edition) (Big Nerd Ranch Guides) (Paperback)
This books helps to ease your learning curve if you are interested to start development for the iOS 5 platform.
Excellent explanation on ARC, strong and weak references, and retain cycles.
New chapters on using gesture recognizers, storyboards, NSRegularExpression, and the iCloud.
You will enjoy also the chapter on the the Model-View-Controller-Store design pattern.
The writing style is the same, but in my opinion the topics are clearer than the previous editions.
Also, for Code that you should delete is struck through, making it clear what is needed to be deleted (Your eyes catch them right away).
Oh, I almost forget. You do not want to miss the story on UIStoryboard.
