Get Hands-On Mastery of iCloud Data Management for iOS 7 and OS X Mavericks

 

As apps rapidly move into business and the cloud, iOS and OS X developers need new data management techniques. In Learning iCloud Data Management, renowned Apple database expert Jesse Feiler shows you how to use Apple’s latest APIs and technologies to structure and synchronize all forms of data. Feiler helps you understand the issues, implement efficient solutions, and deliver highly usable apps that seamlessly synchronize during the “Round Trip” between iOS and OS X and back again.

 

This guide walks you through integrating several key Apple data management technologies, including the Address Book and Calendar APIs. Feiler shows you how to structure data so it’s easy to build great Cocoa and Cocoa Touch user interfaces and to quickly incorporate reliable iCloud syncing. Step by step, you’ll discover how to blend Apple’s standard application data structures with your own user data to create a feature-rich and fully syncable environment.

 

Coverage includes

  • Understanding iCloud from the developer’s and user’s point of view
  • Accessing synchronized user calendars and contacts
  • Integrating Reminders into your apps
  • Playing by iCloud’s user privacy rules
  • Applying consistent iOS Settings and OS X Preferences across user devices
  • Managing persistent storage with Core Data
  • Using Xcode Project Workspaces for shared development
  • Adding data to app bundles and resources
  • Integrating iCloud infrastructure, file wrappers, documents, and data
  • Completing the”Round Trip” between both iOS and OS X

Synopsis:

Master iCloud data management for Mac OS X 10.8 and iOS hands-on, through two start-to-finish projects!

 

Leading Apple data management author Jesse Feiler introduces all facets of iCloud data management, fully leveraging key improvements in OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion. Data management is one of the most challenging areas of iCloud development: Feiler's Learning iCloud Data Management helps you understand the issues, choose the right technologies, and implement them quickly and successfully — delivering friendly, efficient, and highly-usable apps that seamlessly "round-trip" between iOS and OS X.

 

You'll first build a complete iOS app enabling an employee to photograph a maintenance problem, identify its location with GPS, use interface features to describe it and type further details, store data in a Core Data store, store user preferences in KVC storage, and store checkbox titles in a property list. Next, you'll build an OS X app that syncs with your iOS app, enabling a manager to schedule maintenance, using the Address Book and Calendar APIs to access data that has already been synced for this user — and thereby demonstrating the "round trip" between iOS and OSX devices.

 

Through these projects, you'll learn all you need to know to integrate user data into iOS and OS X apps; to structure and sync app data across devices and operating systems; to create iCloud app libraries, and much more.
