The iPhone is one of the hottest mobile devices on the planet. Whether you are just starting out with iOS Development or already have some knowledge in this area, you will benefit from what this book covers. Using this book's straightforward, step-by-step approach, you will go from Xcode 4 apprentice to Xcode 4 Jedi master in no time.

Xcode 4 iOS Development Beginner's Guide will help you learn to build simple, yet powerful applications for the iPhone from the ground up. You will master the Xcode 4 tools and skills needed to create applications that are simple yet, like Yoda, punch far above their weight.

You will start by learning about the Xcode 4 Development Tools, Xcode IDE, iOS Simulator, Objective-C 2, and Organizer. Then you will jump straight in and create applications using Xcode and Interface Builder. You finish up by learning how to build, package, and distribute your application to the Apple App Store.
