The iPhone Developer’s Library, available at a promotional price of $24.99 US, brings to your mobile bookshelf three #1 best selling books from Addison-Wesley Professional, a publishing imprint of Pearson Education:

* Programming in Objective-C 2.0, by Stephen Kochan

* Cocoa Programming for Mac OS X, by Aaron Hillegass

* The iPhone Developer's Cookbook: Building Applications with the iPhone SDK, by Erica Sadun

Pearson has developed an iPhone app that includes all the standard features you expect in a reader such as easy navigation, search, and hyperlinking. We didn’t stop there. In developing the App we wanted to include features specifically beneficial to the development community, including:

* Scroll vertically and horizontally through long code listings using Code View

* Access to all of the sample programs via the email feature in Code View

* Highlighting and Bookmarking both supported

*Search the current chapter and the current book quickly and easily

Programming in Objective-C 2.0


From the author of Programming in C, Programming in Objective-C 2.0 provides the new programmer a complete, step-by-step introduction to the Objective-C language.

The second edition of this book has been updated and expanded to cover Objective-C 2.0. It shows not only how to take advantage of the Foundation framework’s rich built-in library of classes but also how to use the iPhone SDK to develop programs designed specifically for the iPhone and iPod Touch.

Cocoa Programming for Mac OS X, Third Edition


If you’re developing applications for Mac OS X, Cocoa Programming for Mac OS X, Third Edition, is the book you’ve been waiting to get your hands on. If you’re new to the Mac environment, it’s probably the book you’ve been told to read first. Covering the bulk of what you need to know to develop full-featured applications for OS X, written in an engaging tutorial style, and thoroughly class-tested to assure clarity and accuracy, it is an invaluable resource for any Mac programmer.

iPhone Developer’s Cookbook: Building Applications with the iPhone SDK


“Erica Sadun’s technical expertise lives up to the Addison-Wesley name. The iPhone Developer’s Cookbook is a comprehensive walkthrough of iPhone development that will help anyone out, from beginners to more experienced developers. Code samples and screenshots help punctuate the numerous tips and tricks in this book.”

—Jacqui Cheng, Associate Editor, Ars Technica

“The iPhone Developer’s Cookbook: Building Applications with the iPhone SDK should be the first resource for the beginning iPhone programmer, and is the best supplemental material to Apple’s own documentation.”

—Alex C. Schaefer, Lead Programmer, ApolloIM, iPhone Application Development Specialist, MeLLmo, Inc

Must have

This is a fantastic resource when you're in an engineering meeting or an impromptu discussion and a code question comes up. The app has a unique source code viewer as well. True there are a few things I would expect them Pearson to address in a near term update: the image viewer is klunky, the screen flashes in a weird way when you tap the screen to bring up the toolbar and navigation bar, the nav bar titles are all truncated, and so on, but these are cosmetic nits in an otherwise very strong app. As a document viewer, it is a bit flawed compared to Air Sharing or PDF Reader, but as a book reader and reference guide, it is one of the best I've seen.

5/5 stars

I've got some reading to do!

The iPhone Developer's Library App contains an great set of e-books that any cocoa developer would be proud to have on their phone. There can be no question that this is a great selection of books, so I'll focus on the e-book reader itself, which contains some bonus features that make it really shine.

Unfortunately, some of those features can be a bit difficult to figure out at first. When I launched the app, I expected to see a menu or a help button. I think this reader in particular could even have given me a brief tutorial when I first launched the app. Regardless, there is a help screen, but you have to get all the way into reading a book before you can get to it. Click into the book you want to read, then click past the table of contents, and only then you can tap the center of the screen to bring up the menu. From here the Q&A style help screen is accessible by touching the question mark icon in the upper right. I know I wanted to read this first.

Once I got started actually reading one of the books, things were pretty much as I'd expect from any e-book reader. The main exception to this is that clicking on an image, a link or a bit of code requires a touch-and-hold method. This is indicated nicely with a sort of shrinking border around the item you are selecting. I think this was probably implemented to avoid accidentally opening something when you meant to page forward through the book, but I found myself avoiding those types of things instinctively when touching to turn a page, so I think it would be nice if that was configurable someday. I also found the length you have to hold before one of these opens (two, maybe three seconds) seems a bit on the long side.

Speaking of configuration, the settings screen has three different tabs full of configurable items, but still somehow felt bare to me. Most of the settings were on the "Appearance" tab, which consisted entirely of color options, but I missed the ability (common in e-book readers) to simply reverse all the colors to view white text on black instead of the default black on white.

I was pleasantly surprised to note that clicking a link opens a browser page without leaving the app, but still gives you the ability to open the link in safari. Clicking an image opens the image in what might also be Safari for all intents and purposes, allowing you to scroll and zoom in a recognizable fashion. Clicking on a bit of code opens the much-touted "code view", which I found to be a very nice addition. Essentially this allows you to scroll and zoom (via a text-size slider) a given piece of code. You can copy and paste the text here, but more practical is the ability to email it to yourself for use on your mac.

5/5 stars
