@Joe & Aaron,
Could you post the TOC to version 3 of the iOS book, or at least elaborate on what new iOS features are covered. I’m very interested in iCloud and ARC, cause right now I can’t seem to release the reference counting blues I’m retaining.
@Both of those guys and everyone else,
Can anybody recommend a good follow up book for “iOS Programming” to take things to the next level? I would like to find more on interface building with things like the datePicker and some of the other items not covered here. I would also like to learn more about iCloud syncing for document’s, core data and key/value pairs. I would also like to find some good material on really customizing your app’s UI. What can be done with simple images in the background and foreground. When it’s best to subclass or just use UI customization available, Ive read about and used apps where somebody did a terrible job on the UI because they re-invented the wheel so to speak, with regard to tableviews etc. Does BNR ever have any plans to release such a book? I’m thinking the BNR Guide to Advanced iOS Programming.
Can anyone tell me which BNR book would be the best to learn Mac apps after the iOS Programming book? Is it still best to start with the entry level book or one of the other BNR Mac books. I think I counted like 3. Do any of them discuss making iOS companion apps for the Mac using iCloud or other means for data syncing?
