The bestselling iPhone development book, updated and revised for SDK 3!

Are you a programmer looking for a new challenge? Does the thought of building your very own iPhone application make your heart race and your pulse quicken? If so, then Beginning iPhone 3 Development: Exploring the iPhone SDK is just the book for you, and its now updated for iPhone OS 3. Complete with new material, it includes a brand-new project that introduces Core Data, an important persistence technology that has made its way to iPhone. Many of the discussions in the original book have been clarified to make some of the more complex topics easier to understand.

Assuming only a minimal working knowledge of Objective-C, and written in a friendly, easy-to-follow style, this book offers a complete soup-to-nuts course in iPhone and iPod touch programming. The book starts with the basics, walking you through the process of downloading and installing Apples free iPhone SDK, and then stepping you though the creation of your first simple iPhone application. From there, youll learn to integrate all the interface elements iPhone users have come to know and love, such as buttons, switches, pickers, toolbars, and sliders, as well as new iPhone OS 3 capabilities, including cut, copy, and paste. Youll master a variety of design patterns, from the simplest single view to complex hierarchical drill-downs. The confusing art of table building will be demystified, and youll see how to save your data using the iPhone file system. Youll also learn how to save and retrieve your data using SQLite, iPhones built-in database management system.

And theres much more! Youll learn to draw using Quartz 2D and OpenGL ES, add multitouch gestural support (pinches and swipes) to your applications, and work with the camera, photo library, accelerometer, and built-in GPS. Youll discover the fine points of application preferences and learn how to localize your apps for multiple languages.
