Having written an application for iPhone/iPad/iTouch called "Bible Names", I really appreciated this book for what it has to offer. The authors start describing the new features of iOS5 compared to iOS4 and giving some tips on how to better use Xcode4. Then they go in details over the new feature called ARC (Automatic Reference Counting). After that they discuss some of the most important concepts, including Properties, Accessors, Protocols, Model-View-Controller, Delegates, Table Views, Drawing Systems, Layout, Layers, User Interaction, Animation. They also mention how to deal with error handling, how to control multitasks and how to run on multiple iPlatforms and iDevices. They cover all things with code examples when possible, showing what to do and what to avoid, no only because of elegance, but for easier understanding the code as it runs behind the scenes. They also talk about internationalization and localization, as well as implementing of the so called In App Purchase, a model that allows you to sell things inside your application.
Definitely a book not destined for beginners, but really worthy to improve your coding techniques and reach the next level on programming for iOS line of products.

This book was written by Rob Napier and Mugunth Kumar and was published by John Wiley and sons in December 2011. Amazon.com was kind enough to provide this book for me through their Vine Program for reviewing and I was not request to provide a positive review. Opinions expressed here are my own.
