This is the Rough Cut version of the printed book.

The "Live Code," app-driven approach used in this beautiful four-color book is simply the best way for working developers to master iOS programming. Using iOS 6 for Programmers. Second Edition, developers learn by creating 15 complete, fully tested iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch Apps, and in the process study 8,000+ lines of program code, including code that reveals the power of Apple's newest iOS 6 SDK. Each chapter introduces a new concept through a complete, working app, not out-of-context code snippets. The Deitels first discuss what the app does, show screen shots, test drive the app, and then introduce the technologies and architecture used to build it. Next, they walk through building the app, presenting complete code (with syntax shading) and sample outputs. As part of their code walkthroughs, they introduce essential programming concepts and demonstrate the functionality of relevant iOS APIs and development tools. By the time you have finished this book, you'll have hands-on experience with virtually every type of iOS app, from games to media, productivity to web services, social networking to route tracking. You will also learn how to convert iPhone apps into "Universal" apps that also run natively on the iPad. In addition, this edition contains a detailed case study focusing on iOS SDK features exclusive to iPad/iPad 2. The Deitels have long been the world's #1 programming book authors. Their readers number in the millions, and their audience has grown even larger since the success of this book's first edition
