Fair Intro To iPhone App Development

  • Jun 18, 2010
'iPhone App Development: The Missing Manual' is a nice book but nowhere near complete enough for most people interested in getting into iPhone application development. At 300+ pages, this is more like an overview/skim of how to go about iPhone programming and that's part of the problem here. The book makes assumptions that you are an Objective C person that can jump right in. Being that this is the case, I would expect there to be more references within, but the content is short on content. Material is broken up over 9 chapters covering a single example --- Flashlight which is what I would want from a book like this.

The writing is clear and to the point, but the design is lacking. Color should have been part of the total package and without that splash of pizzaz, the interior is droll and bland.

For those looking to get started in iPhone development, this is a nice reference but I just wish it was a bit longer and had a tad more sex appeal for the reader.
