"Dedicated to Steve Jobs, this self published book highlights much of what Jobs himself strove for - clear, crisp design, intuitive interface and user experience coupled with high quality, clear content." - Digital Book World

"Most of the books I scanned, even the "Dummies" series, assumed a basic knowledge of computer programming even for iOS beginners. What I like about Kevin's writing is that he doesn't make any assumptions - he just takes you there - step by step." - Lorraine Akemann - Moms With Apps

Non Programmers Learn to Create iOS Apps!
This first book in the series from Kevin McNeish, award-winning App Developer, highly acclaimed conference speaker and featured writer for iPhone Life magazine, is  designed to teach non-programmers  to create Apps for the iPhone and iPad. Many books designed for the beginning Apple developer assume way too much. This book series assumes you know nothing about programming.

Includes Step-by-Step Instructional Videos!
There are seven step-by-step instructional videosin which you watch the author create each part of the App. This is great for those who need some extra help.

Up to Date With the Latest Apple Technologies
As Apple releases new versions of iOS, this book is updated and you receive a new version of the book at no extra charge. This book is up to date with the latest iOS technologies, including iOS 9 and Xcode 7.

"Very often these 101-type books can fail with their slightly patronizing tone. Kevin J McNeish triumphs with his spring over and beyond this hurdle. His first 'easy in' publication in a series, comprises short, concise and engaging chapters and exercises that have been reviewed by testers from the demographic that the book is intended for." - Publishing Innovation Awards

I am a developer trying to understand how to write an iPhone application for a few years, but have never found a book that made sense for a guy that knows windows. With this book, I finally understand the relationship between Xcode, objective-c, cocoa framework, and the related Mac tips. If I don't get a concept, the video at the end of each chapter brings it all together. I also like that the book isn't filled with fluff to get a page count. I strongly recommend this book for the developer that wants to get into the iOS game.
Before I get into the critical part of this review, I'll begin with some positive comments. Overall, the book is well written and explains what the author is doing very well. The pictures are very helpful. Additionally, @$10 for the kindle edition, the price is good.

With what I said above in mind, this book and it's description are misleading. The book takes one through a series of steps of creating a pseudo Delivery app. In each chapter additional parts (Views) are added and are done in a fairly straight forward manner. However, the author does not provide a single line of code making the entire app useless. The delivery locations are manually added in the Storyboard and are his static, without any real meaning. The real beauty in an app is the ability of the user to add to table and show locations etc. I was very disappointed after I purchased the book and saw that there was not a single line of code.

I downloaded a sample of a non-Amazon version of this book on my iPad purely out of curiosity. I got far enough along in the sample that I had to buy the book to finish what I'd started. To my amazement, setting up iOS apps isn't nearly as difficult as I'd imagined.

This book is NOT a book on programming. All it does is teach you how to set up a storyboard for an app. A storyboard is essentially a skeleton for an application. You'll be able to create screens for an iPhone/iPad app after going through this book, but it does not cover programming. To put "meat" on the bones of your app, you'll need to learn Objective C, which I hope to do with the second book of this series.

It's an easy read, there are no typos or loose ends, and the iPad version of this book has videos that walk you through each chapter. I got through this book in less than a day and it's obvious the author put a lot of work into making the book readable and giving readers the "instant... Read more
