Now, as I'm transitioning to iOS 9 I was pleased to find the revised and updated edition covering SWIFT, at a bargain price no less. The text is well written covering the topic more broadly than any other I have seen. It is written such that arcane topics can be easily understood without having to reference other material and that makes it a good learning and reference tool for me. While it is perfectly useful for an Objective C programmer, I think it will prove helpful as I start coding in SWIFT.
Writing is clear if at times a little wordy. Presentation in the Kindle version is excellent on the iPad. Code examples are perfect for me, as they illustrate the point concisely with a minimum of unnecessary nonsense, allowing you to get in and out of examples with relative ease. The book covers crucial topics like StoreKit in a no-nonsense fashion.
Highly recommended for introductory learning as well as permanent reference. I do wish the Kindle contents were more approachable. With over 100 chapters, each having numerous sub chapters, each included in the contents, it can take some time to find what you're looking for; this makes scanning the contents a little tedious. A minor complaint for an excellent book.
I wish the authors had done a better job on size classes with their coffee cup app, and also wish they had put in a discussion on how to properly size empty stack views in auto layout. I chose to spend a few days on those topics, as a student exercise, to get the app to work right on all size classes.
I would easily recommend this book to anyone who is learning ios9 and swift and xcode.
The book is very well written, has very little errata, and is easy to understand.
