One of the first contemporary Xode books, covering Xcode 4.5 for iOS 6 and 4.4 for Mac OS X Mountain Lion.
Author is a published book author and practicing Apple iOS and Mac apps developer.
Xcode is Apple's IDE/tools similar to Microsoft's Visual Studio IDE/tools.
Pro Xcode is a complete Xcode reference for developers. While Apress' Beginning Xcode touched on some fairly advanced topics in a relaxed and friendly manner, Apress' Pro Xcode is a more expansive and concise book, going into more detail about each area with a tone more appropriate to the audience. In this book, you'll learn and use unit testing, instruments, core data, persistence and more. This book also includes in-app purchasing using Xcode, which few other books cover.
While using this book, you'll get some cool projects to build. For example, you'll learn how to create a ‘Charades’ or ‘Draw Something’ style app where you'll get exposure to iOS game center integration. This 'Charades' game app lets users draw a picture describing a phrase and the other player has to guess what it is. Other projects include the following:
Build a class for a person and set up unit tests to check the constructor works currently.
Create an app that plays music from a device’s music collection.
Build an electronic business card and make it available in multiple languages.
Create a Sprite Kit app with some fun physics effects such as walls that explode when contacted by another object.
Develop an app with a dollar value displayed representing in-game credits that is altered through in-app purchases.
After reading and using this book, you'll be a proficient and productive iOS app developer using the Xcode IDE and framework.
