Mastering Xcode 4: Develop and Design This is the eBook version of the printed book.
Xcode 4 has a brand new user interface, built upon proven technologies that Apple itself uses to build Mac OS X and iOS, and that have produced over a quarter million Mac OS X and iOS apps.

This project-based book introduces readers to Apple's development environment. The book is aimed at new Mac OS X and iOS developers and assumes the reader is familiar with programming and object-oriented concepts. The book starts at the basics--how to download, install, and start using Xcode--and moves to a detailed look at building and running applications. The last part of the book covers more advanced topics, such as testing, debugging, and source-code management. With the book's approach, readers will be able to take the projects they build during the book and adapt them for use in their own projects.


  • Useless as an eBook

    By KymDavCha
    The content is getting seriously out of date as Xcode is now up to 4.4 and a lot of items referred to do not exist anymore. Trying to reconcile the out-of-date contents to the latest Xcode versions (4.3 & 4.4) means there is a lot of back and forth activity from the text to the Figures. Too bad a lot of the Figures showing the Xcode interface are simply too small to see anything (retina iPad). Double tapping on a Figure just results in a marginally larger Figure that is so blurry as to be worthless. As an eBook that is targeted at novices learning the xCode interface it is simply, in its present form, bordering on useless. The content needs to be refreshed generally and the Figures made compatible with an iPad so that they can be magnified without blurring.
