IOS 5 Core Frameworks: Develop and Design: Working with Graphics, Location, Icloud, and More (Develop and Design)by Shawn Welch
Synopses & Reviews
Much like the hardware it runs on, iOS is a very intuitive platform for developers. Apple has made it easy for developers to quickly get started using out-of-the-box elements in UIKit and Foundation. The true power of iOS, however, exists beyond these simple tools and APIs.
iOS 5 Core Frameworks: Develop and Design teaches developers how to tap the true potential of iOS by incorporating some of the most powerful technologies iOS has to offer.
Data management is key to any great application. This book teaches you how to use both Core Data and iCloud to store information locally and sync it seamlessly across multiple devices and platforms.
Learn how to leverage the new Twitter APIs built directly into iOS 5 or create your own single-sign service using the new Accounts framework.
Location, location, location. There is a reason why location companies like Gowalla and Foursquare started on iOS. iOS makes location easy. Using new APIs available in iOS 5, location is even more powerful than ever. This book teaches you how to use location services in your app and how to incorporate new iOS 5 features like reverse geo-location lookup and region notifications.
Graphics, Images, and Animation
iOS and its applications are known for their polish and smooth animation effects. While UIKit provides access to simple effects, iOS 5 Core Frameworks: Develop and Design teaches you how to take advantage of these technologies directly and how to create your own custom UI, animations, and post processing photo filter effects as seen in popular apps like Photoshop Touch, Instagram, 100 Cameras, and Camera+.
New in iOS 5, Newsstand apps rewrite the rules for newspapers and magazines on iOS. Creating an entirely new class of app, Newsstand aims to provide developers the ability to create their own periodical content and push new content to devices — even when the application is not running.
Apple has made it easy to get started developing for iOS out of the box. To access the true power of iOS, however, you need to go beyond these simple tools and APIs. Experienced app developer Shawn Welch teaches you how to tap into the true potential of iOS by incorporating some of the most powerful technologies it has to offer.
Using Core Data and iCloud, you'll learn how to store information locally and sync seamlessly across multiple devices and platforms. Leverage iOS 5's new Twitter APIs, which provide painless Twitter and OAuth support using the new Accounts framework. Use Location Services to incorporate new iOS 5 features, such as reverse geolocation lookup and region notifications. Incorporate rich media into your apps using Graphics, Animation, Audio, Video, and post-processing photo filters and analysis through Core Image. Finally, explore Newsstand, which lets you create your own periodical content and push new content to devices, even when the app is not running.
This book teaches developers how to implement core frameworks in their iOS apps. Core frameworks provide low-level API access to some of iOS's underlying technologies including Graphics and Drawing, Animation, Physical device motion tracking, and location services. The book also shows how to hand off some of these services to background processing like background notifications, audio and location.
