Greg's book is really THAT good. What I've been doing with the projects in this book, after working thru the chapter and creating the project, I then proceed to create additional iterations of the project, adding my own tweaks in the various iterations, and PROVING to myself that I really have mastered the material and can now move on.
The projects Greg throws at you, along with the various elements of iOS that you have to master for THAT project, is the main reason this book is so good and the reason I realized I truly had to repeat the projects, numerous times, to insure the material presented was 'cemented' in my head.
I haven't finished the book yet but continue to work thru it in this fashion.
If you REALLY want to sit down and FINALLY get enough iOS programming skills under your belt, that you ACTUALLY UNDERSTAND, to allow yourself to jump off on your own and FINALLY start creating your own iOS apps....this is the book to start with.
I haven't published an app to the Apple App Store...yet....but as I work thru Greg's book I'm pretty confident I will....soon!
One more thing: This is a technical skills author that ACTUALLY RESPONDS TO EMAIL REQUESTS AND QUERIES. Greg has been VERY responsive to email queries which simply makes you more comfortable moving thru the material...knowing that there really IS somebody out there that WILL answer a question or get you over some hump/problem you're having!!
Chapters 1,2,3 were very straight forward and it appeared that it would be the swift goto book for me.
However, after pouring over Chapter four numerous times and even trying to compare the code sent to me by the author to the books code, the two sets did not match well enough. It is quite possible that it needs to be updated, but I am running the same xCode and Swift versions as stated in the book. It looks like a lot of care was put into the first three chapters. Comparatively chapter four looks rushed. I'm assuming the rest of the book is the same as Chapter four. When I type in the code verbatim errors come up. This in and of itself is not necessarily unusual, however; when teaching, there should be mention of any error that shows up realtime and when it will be addressed. Even with my numerous years of coding and several google searches, something was still missing. I wasn't able to continue. I returned the book. I'm looking elsewhere for IOS/swift tutorials.

The authors goal is to enable the reader publishing own apps.
He shows both, the „old“ (UIKit) AND the „new“ (SwiftUI) way to create UIs. First I was disappointed to see so much UIKit code, but now I know: it is very necessary to have knowledge about it.
This book covers a unbelievable wide range of topics with step by step tutorials to build usable apps:
+ creating UIs (using different UI elements)
+ using Core Data -> To Do List app
+ API connection -> Quotes app
+ Machine Learning (Core ML) -> Image detection app
+ augmented reality (ARKit) -> AR „aircraft“ app, AR furniture app
+ SwiftUI (including reusable views) -> Pokemon app
+ Widget -> Pokemon widget extension
+!!! App Clips (even this one!!!) -> Pokemon app App Clip
+!!! Mac Catalyst (… and this one too!!!)
+!!! In-App purchases -> Quotes app
+ publishing your app on AppStore
With this book you are definitely able to create your own apps!
After this one I read three other books regarding SwiftUI. Every book guides the reader step by step to build apps.
This book was the one with the fewest code errors by far!
Once I got stuck and I contacted the author via e-mail (as given in the book). He replied nearly immediately, sent me the link for downloading the source codes and voila - problem solved.
In my opinion this one was the best by far!
I really have to say, that the reviews from Benjamin E. and James C. are not matching my experience at all.
