"I have about three iOS books, and I like this one the best. The author writes in such a way that I can understand. The iOS 6 Programming Cookbook is the ideal book for providing a guide to a variety of functions of iOS from the very basics of how to get your first app running, solving common problems like passing data between views, and using functionality such as Core Data, using iCloud, drawing and so on. It is an excellent addition to the tools I use to becoming better at writing iOS apps. I love that it takes complex topics such as UICollection View Controller, 3D transformations and 2D animations, and making them accessible and understandable. This book as one for anyone interested in iOS development because it covers all the new features of iOS 6, making it a great reference guide. ~Reviewed by David H. Reading Room Rating 5 books"

"While the 'cookbook' genre of technical books may seem increasingly outdated in a world with Google and Stack Overflow, it's still nice to consult a discrete resource where you know someone put time into presenting a range of topics about a given subject in a logical manner. The iOS 6 Programming Cookbook by Vandad Nahavandipoor is a good example of this philosophy in action." Full Review >

"iOS 6 Programming Cookbook follows on from iOS 5 Cookbook, which I thoroughly enjoyed by Vandad Nahavandipoor, this is the third revision I am reviewing, with incremental improvements to keep you up to date with the latest version of iOS. For the most part, you can review my previous reviews on this book, for which I consider this book to be a fantastic and essential part of your programming literature toolkit. It goes through the normal problem">solution">discussion process to allow you to quickly identify which topic matches your needs and then explains that topic concisely with an example, rather than go through all the fluff. The fluff is left for the discussion part in case you wanted to know more. But if this isn't your ideal way of learning, in a non-linear but contextual method, then keep this book as a reference."
