iOS 5 Developer's Cookbook does a great job in covering all the fundamental and key concepts needed for anyone new to iOS development. It also gives you enough information to make good use the features of XCode for iOS 5 development. The "recipes" are very useful practical examples of little tasks one usually encounters in building out their apps. Good job on the basics of ARC, XCode and filled with great tips and tricks!

The recipes in the book also take a pragmatic approach. For example if you have problem A, the recipes / tasks even taken into account bugs on the platform framework and the solution works around the bugs. This can help save you precious time working around problems. Not to mention frustration.

For anyone starting out on iOS or looking for a book that covers advanced topics, this is it. It serves both worlds well. I would definitely recommend it.

Disclosure: I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for writing this review on behalf of CodeRanch.

Yes, of course, and I accept that blame. In fact, i covet that blame. As does this tiny ad:
a bit of art, as a gift, that will fit in a stocking
