Publisher Comments:

Take advantage of iPhone and iPad sensors and advanced geolocation technologies to build state-of-the-art location applications. In this concise hands-on guide, author Alasdair Allan (Learning iOS Programming) takes you deep inside Apples Core Location framework, Map Kit, and other iOS tools, using illustrative examples and sample Objective-C code. Learn how to build location-aware apps for both iPhones and iPads, using code that detects hardware features and then adjusts your apps behavior.

If youre a programmer with iOS experience, or a Mac developer familiar with Objective-C, this book helps you get off to a solid start in location-based app development.

Youll learn about:

  • Core Location: Understand the significant-change location service and geo-fencing capabilities
  • Map Kit: Embed maps into your applications views
  • Magnetometer: Use the on-board sensor as a digital compass
  • Geocoding capabilities: Translate geographic coordinates into place names, and vice versa
  • Heat maps: Get a code walkthrough for displaying these maps on top of a standard MapKit view
  • Third-party SDKs: Add unique geo-location capabilities to your app from SkyHook Wireless, MapBox, and other providers

Synopsis:

The iPhone and iPad allow user positioning via multiple methods, including GPS. The growing number location-aware, and location-fenced, applications now arriving in the App Store make heavy use of these abilities. This book walks you through the basic tools you need to build geo-aware applications before diving into the available third-party geo-SDKs available for the iOS platform.

This short book is part of a collection that will, along with new material, be compiled into a larger book, iOS Sensor Programming. The other books in this collection are Augmented Reality in iOS, iOS Sensor Apps with Arduino, and Basic Sensors in iOS.
