Master state-of-the-art iOS 6 development for iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch! Packed with code, this is the only book that covers the full range of intermediate-to-advanced iOS development topics in tutorial/reference form. Expert author Kevin Languedoc follows the natural flow of application design, development, testing, and deployment, and reviews each essential design pattern and development model available for building world-class iOS 6 apps. Skipping "beginner content," Languedoc drills down to explain today's most powerful techniques, and illuminate iOS 69's most significant advances. iOS 6 Development Unleashed offers extraordinarily thorough coverage of iOS 6 app development techniques, and each iOS 6 layer: Core OS, Core Services, Media, and Cocoa Touch. Each of the following topics is covered in its own complete chapter: Templates, Storyboards, Windows, Bars, Data Views, Controls, Gesture Recognizers, Grand Central Dispatch, Block Objects, SQLite, XML, Accelerate, Core Bluetooth, External Accessories, Security Frameworks, Address Book, CFNetwork, CoreData, iCloud, Core Foundation, Core Location, Telephony, Newsstand, Quick Look, Store Kit, System Configuration, AV Foundation, Audio Units, Core Audio, Core Graphics, Image Graphics, CoreMIDI, Core Text, Core Video, ImageI/O, Quartz, Address Book Framework, Event Kit UI and Event Kit Framework, Printing, GameKit, iAd, UiKit, MapKit, Twitter, documents, file sharing, and more. For all experienced iOS developers, architects, and development team members.

About the Author

Robert McGovern began programming in the dark mists of time with COBOL & Pascal. Thankfully he climbed out of that deep dark pit and found his way to Objective-C/Cocoa by way of C, Java, and Ruby. He spends his time as a stay at home dad, looking after a household of kids and cats. In his spare time he has reviewed & tech edited a number of Cocoa/Cocoa Touch related books, and maintains the server side of iDeveloper.tv & NSConference.com.
