Forums, blogs and even the Apple Developer site are full of hard questions and murky answers. When building an app, developers don't want vague ideas and untested theory - they want real answers to real problems. They want iOS 6 in Practice. iOS 6 in Practice is a book written from the hard-won experience of expert mobile app developer Bear Cahill. In this unique hands-on guide, readers will explore seven real, working iPhone and iPad apps and uncover 85 specific techniques to solve the specific problems they'll encounter over and over. Throughout the book, each reusable technique is set out in a clear problem/solution/discussion format and identified for easy reference. As readers explore the great sample apps, they'll get the skills and confidence they need to bring their own ideas to life-which is what iOS development is all about. AUDIENCE This book quickly reviews the basics of iOS development, but it is not a beginner's tutorial. Some prior exposure to iPhone or iPad development is helpful, but not required. ABOUT THE TECHNOLOGY With 100 million iPhone OS devices sold already, and over one billion dollars paid out to developers through Apple's App Store, there can be no doubt that iPhone/iPad development is a serious business.
