This version of iOS 6 Developer’s Cookbook: Core Recipes for Programmers is based on a late beta version of iOS 6. The final version of this book will be based on final code.

In this book, bestselling author and iOS development guru Erica Sadun brings all of the essential recipes you need to quickly start building successful iOS apps for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. Sadun has thoroughly revised this book to iOS 6, the latest version of Objective-C, and the latest Xcode development tools.

The iOS 6 Developer’s Cookbook: Core Recipes for Programmers, Fourth Edition is packed with ready-made code solutions for the iOS 6 development challenges you’re most likely to face, eliminating trial-and-error and helping you build reliable apps from the very beginning. Sadun teaches each new concept and technique through robust code that is easy to reuse and extend. This isn’t just cut-and-paste: Using her examples, Sadun fully explains both the “how” and “why” of effective iOS 6 development.

Sadun’s tested recipes address virtually every major area of iOS development, from user interface design to view controllers, gestures and touch, to networking and collections views. Every chapter groups related tasks together, so you can jump straight to your solution, without having to identify the right class or framework first.
