Book Description

Building on the phenomenal success of its predecessor iOS 5 includes over 200 new user features as well as an updated SDK containing over 1,500 new APIs. iOS 5 looks set to reinforce the iPhone’s dominance in the smartphone market.

iOS 5 Essentials will help you learn how to build simple, yet powerful iOS 5 applications incorporating iCloud Storage, Twitter, Core Image and Newsstand integration.

You will start by learning about what’s new in iOS 5. You'll look at the iCloud Storage APIs, Automatic Reference Counting, Twitter and AirPlay integration, how to use the various Core Image filters using the Cocoa framework, and the new features of the iOS 5 SDK. After this, you'll jump straight in and create applications using Xcode and Interface Builder using the new storyboard layout. We then finish up by learning how to make your applications run smoothly using the Xcode instruments.
