Publisher Comments:

It's not an iPhone and it's not a laptop: the iPad is a groundbreaking new device. You need to create true iPad apps to take advantage of all that is possible with the iPad. If you're an experienced iPhone developer, iPad Programming, will show you how to write these outstanding new apps while completely fitting your users' expectation for this device.

Hold an iPad in your hands and you'll know what the fuss is all about. Select an app and the device disappears as you find yourself immersed in the experience--the iPad defines a new category for devices. iPad Programming shows you how to build apps for the iPad that people will love to use.

This quick-start guide will have you writing iPad apps right away using a combination of the familiar iPhone APIs along with the new APIs and additional templates designed specifically for creating iPad applications.

The iPad has a display that's more than seven times as big as the iPhone. The metaphors are different; the application design is different. Users will be able to interact with your iPad app in new ways. In this book you'll learn to take advantage or the additional real estate and functionality.

Every time you turn around it seems as if there's another ten thousand apps added to the App Store for the iPhone. If you're building iPad-specific apps, it's a brand new day with plenty of opportunity. In this book we don't just teach you to write apps that run on an iPad, we teach you to create apps that delight users because they wouldn't make sense running on any other device.

Book News Annotation:

Designed for experienced iPhone programmers expanding into the new iPad development arena, this guide enumerates the unique characteristics of the iPad platform and urges developers to create new applications designed specifically for the device rather than simply recycling iPhone applications. Chapters examine the new features of the iPad such as its split views, customizable input methods, movie player and file management, and provide numerous code examples and illustrations. Steinberg and Freeman are technology writers. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
