Sadun presents innovative ways to make the most of AVFoundation, Text Kit, animation, adaptive interface programming, and much more. As in all of her iOS best-sellers, this pragmatic guide translates modern best practices into working code, distilling key concepts into recipes you can understand and build on.
This is more than just cut-and-paste; using examples, Sadun offers a deep dive into the “how” and “why” of advanced iOS development. The code reflects iOS’s latest capabilities, and every chapter groups related tasks together, so you can jump straight to your solution.
