Take Your Next Leap Forward as an iOS App Developer Covers iOS 7 and Xcode 5 "iOS Components and Frameworks" will help you leverage iOS's powerful components and frameworks to build apps with outstanding performance, reliability, interactivity, media support, and customization. Pioneering iOS developers Kyle Richter and Joe Keeley illuminate the sophisticated intermediate-to-advancedlevel techniques you're now ready for. You'll find example-rich coverage of topics ranging from social support to security, Core Data, TextKit, iCloud support, UIKit Dynamics, MapKit, and Passbook. There's also a complete section on advanced performance and security, including the effective use of Grand Central Dispatch and Keychain.

Coverage includes:

  • New physics-based animation effects provided by UIKit Dynamics
  • Making the most of Core Location, MapKit, and Geofencing
  • Leveraging Game Center features such as Leader Boards and Achievements
  • Giving users access to their address and media libraries from within your app
