Release date for the 3rd book
« on: November 13, 2012, 05:15:27 PM »
Any news on the 3rd book? iBookstore does not have it yet. I really enjoyed 1 and 2, learned a lot.

Glad you are enjoying the series so far! We had a bit of a delay as we needed to go back and update Book 1 to iOS 6 and Xcode 4.5. Also, Apple keeps releasing new version of Xcode, so we have had some updating to do in Book 3 too. Moving full speed ahead on Book 3 which we will release as soon as possible!

In a recent email it sounded like book 3 was about to be released. Any update on that?
I've purchased a Mac Mini to develop on, have been through book 2 twice and am now anxiously awaiting book 3.

Yes, my apologies to everyone for the delay! We decided to go back and update the book for the latest release of Xcode so it is now completely current. We also added a few extra chapters requested by readers, and I'm in then process of formatting the last two chapters now, so it should be just a few more days!

P.S. Book 3 is the biggest book so far. It will be about 475 pages!

Looking forwards to getting Book 3. I've been learning how to create apps for a few months now and still was unclear on how a few things worked until I came across this series of books. When I downloaded the sample of Book 1 it explained in a very simple way how something worked and I was hooked and purchased both book 1 and 2. I'm glad I did!!!

I'll be getting Book 3 as soon as available!

When I found this series I was skeptical towards "Learn Coding Fast" type of advertisement. I'm about to finish up the 2nd book and can honestly say that this book has been awesome(I did have a small background in Java and Android Dev, but this book caught me up to speed with iOS almost instantly). I just want to say thanks and that I can't wait for the 3rd book to come out soon!

Hi Kevin,

I really enjoyed Books 1 and 2.  I took an iOS development and Objective-C class a while ago.  The instructor had us sit there and just type code for hours not explaining what any of it meant.  I was so busy typing there was no time to stop and make sense of any of it.  I walked away feeling very broke with a bad headache and confused...LOL  I wish I never took the class.  Anyway, after reading your books I now feel like it's coming together and making sense.  I just finished Book 2 and went to go purchase Book 3 but it's not released yet.  I am looking forward to Book 3 when it comes out.  Thanks for taking the time to write these books!!!
