I would've rated this book higher had there not been so many typos, and had there been more code examples earlier on in the book. Generally, this book helps out a lot if you're from a var = value; background as it explains how to properly write in objective-c for the first three chapters of the book. Be prepared to take those chapters in, and at least memorize some of the common methods so that you can reference them later in order to fully understand the example code. Also, there are typos in the code on occasion - find and fix them in your code....and then you know you've learned something! If this was any other book, I'd find this inexcusable, though in a programming book I actually found this helpful somewhat.

Having read a few of the other reviews here, I think I need to put my view forward.

I'm a experienced developer, tho not overly experienced in iOS development. I found this book to be very good for quick "how do I do X" type things. Could I find that info online? Sure, but it's a lot easier to find in the book, and the examples are well and clearly written.

Unlike one of the other reviewers, I've not had any problems with the code in the book. Some of the printed examples are not full projects, but really, do you want all the project cruft when the book is just explaining how to put a pin on the map? If so, download the samples, as they are full projects. It's a waste of paper to print all that "boilerplate" stuff.

I do agree with a few other people - calling it a "Visual Quickstart" does imply that someone who doesn't know iOS or Obj-C would get up to speed with this book, and I dont think thats correct. But with a minimum of Obj-C/XCode experience (eg, maybe a week of learning), this book is extremely useful.

So, if you know zero obj-c and have never opened xcode, this might not be the book for you YET. The Hilligas book - or a week long training course - might be a better option. But once you have gotten past "hello world" and actually want to create something serious with iOS, this book is extremely worthwhile.

Having already gone through an iPhone beginners book I found the text very useful because it approached things from a different angle. For example components are built in code rather than in Interface Builder. It also provides a good overview of each component.

My only gripe is that each page is split into 2 columns. Which works well when providing a picture next to the text. But doesn't work well with code, particularly Objective-C. The method names are so long that each line of code spreads over 2-5 lines, making it hard to read.

Also annoying, the URL for the companion web site was wrong (it also may have been down when I first went looking for it). I've found it now its: [...]

I run a software development company and we use this book to get new hires up to speed with iOS. We find that it gives a great background information for people new to iOS and also as a good reference book for specific problems, once they are up to speed.

The book doesn't go into interface builder at all, which may be a problem for some, but we have found that giving this book to developers first gets them up to speed with the language and frameworks, then we use a couple of other resources once they are a bit more familiar.

I was given this book by my employer to get familiar with iPhone development. In the very first chapter is starts off by expalining strings, arrays, other types of storages. It does'nt even give you example code until about chapter 3. It does not explain any syntax, or anything else about the code, what does what etc. Even the example programs crash. I know for a fact there are at least two that crash due to missing methods in the example. This seems to be more of a reference book, if you want to add this to your app, then... etc. Not a learning book.

If everyone used this book to learn how to develop for the iPhone, we would still be using iOS 1. Avoid, find a better alternative. 400 pages read, and I learned more by spending 10 minutes on Apple's Developer site.

The book is supposed to be a quickstart guide. It is in fact quite the opposite. I got halfway through the book and was still not clear on how an iphone app was put together. The book has obviously been cobbled together in a few days and pushed out quickly. I got much further much more quickly by searching the web for free tutorials.
