    Consicely and clearly written guide which I personllay found immensely useful for getting the taste of main Xcode features and learning the basics of putting prototypes together. Would greatly recommend. Moving on to the next book on Swift.
  • Works for old people too.

    I was a professional (Main Frame) computer programmer, and have been catching up on newer languages and techniques. I have tried several Swift courses and usually get hung up due either to software upgrades, or coding errors the ebooks don’t cover. This one was a dream. Everything worked as intended, or the XCODE debuggers showed me my typing errors. Good to see professional work in an ebook.
  • The best book for diving!!

    I searched a lot to find a book or course to learning Xcode and these series of books are the best one I found. Without a doubt!
  • Very easy to follow and a great starting point for a non-Apple developer

    This book is very good and a very easy read. The instructions are very detailed, so it is very easy to follow the directions. I have been a developer for 20 years and have used serveral IDE’s in my career from Visual Studio to Eclipse. However, XCode never seemed easy for me because of the lack of good documentation on the web. This book is a good jump start for a very low cost. There is one thing to note. I am reading “Diving Into iOS 8” and am on Chapter 4. So far no problem with the exception of not being able to display the table in the simulator. The solution was to add the following steps: Click on the "Navigation Controller”. In the Inspector to the right, click on the 3rd icon from the right to show the “Attributes Inspector”. Look for the “View Controller” section, and click “Is Initial View Controller”. Now, if you run the simulator, you will be able to see the table.
  • Wonderful!

    I want to develop iOS apps. It has not been easy to get started until now. The problem is that most books and manuals assume too much about you. They assume that you have a decent amount of prior knowledge of the subject. Not this book, though. I love how detailed and easy the concepts and terminology are to comprehend. If you want to get started with iOS development, I would start here.
  • There are many ‘Beginning’ iOS & Objective-C Books out there. This is the ONLY SERIES that works!

    Attempting to auto-didact myself into the wondrous world of app development over the last 2 years has been brutal. The other texts out there all start out nice, but 4 to 6 chapters in things sort of fall off… This series, starting with this marvelous Book 1, is truly a revolution, unbelievably well designed with the hydrocephallic idiot like myself in mind! Nice, big text, pretty pictures, animated flash cards, and most delightful of all, the movies at the end of Ch3 through 9. Most important of all, it brings out the FUN that draws us into this most difficult subject to begin with! I am deeply grateful to the good Dr. McNeish (and any associates, for that matter) for the conception and presentation which have resulted in a WONDERFUL experience. There is simply no other text on this subject which ANY beginner should even consider. Very reasonably priced, for a priceless work.
  • I love this book!!!!!!

    This book makes it so easy to understand the beginning process to making an app even without any prior knowledge of app making what-so-ever!!! I mean it! I've heard great things about Kevin and He clearly lives up to his great unique ability to teach, You gotta get this book!

    I have completed several Intro to iOS development books and e-books but never really gained traction. Seemed like the API’s and Xcode changed too much each year that I was never quite sure what of the texts still applied and Xcode was useable but difficult to understand. This book definitely gets your feet wet and I appreciated the thoroughness of instructions and illustrations to build confidence. Have bought other 2 books in series and would not hesitate to purchase others as released based on Book 1. Kevin and his wife presented to Mac User Group and he seems like a great instructor with enthusiasm for anyone to learn iOS programming.
  • Simply Amazing!

    I just finished the first book and made my first prototype app. It feels so great! This book is so easy to follow along with. I love the mix of written instruction and video instruction. Learning a concept both ways really helps it sink in. Thank you so much for creating this series. Just bought the second book. Can't wait to learn more!
