This is the book to read if you are a complete beginner. I still had to pay very close attention but the author covers everything and when you are finished you have a very cool basic prototype app which with the latest xcode you can put straight on your iOS device.
Now I get it !

Its a short book but teaches you about storyboards very well. I’ve already started putting the book to good use and creating my own projects.
This really helped a total newcomer. I had zero idea but i finished the book in 2 days. Just about to begin book 2. I cannot rate this guy highly enough.
Best start for iOS Developing, full stop
By The Gadgeteer
The negative reviewer on here who complains that the book doesn’t create anything that works is completely missing the point. This book is nothing less than a breathe of fresh air. I’m not a programmer and that’s why I bought a book for “Non-Programmers”. I went through this book in a day and at the end of it, I was absolutely over the moon with myself because I understood the whole process of creating an App. This is not meant to make you a hot shot iOS Developer (the clue is in the Book “1”), it’s to get you started with Xcode and how things come together.
I really can’t recommend this book highly enough. I’ve tried countless books and given up very quickly after struggling with the structure. This book is faultless and the videos at the end of each chapter are just the icing on the cake if you’re struggling at all with the text.
Well done Mr McNeish and I’m off to read Book 2.
Amazing book really easy to understand.
I’m a beginner to App Development you’re videos in this book made it really easy to understand, you’re a great writer and teacher. Now it’s time for me to start the second book.
VERY basic and misleading sample chapters
I bought this book on the strength of the 5-star reviews it was getting but I have to say I was thorougly disappointed with it and amazed it has got such good reviews.
When you download the sample book it implies you are going to build a delivery app from scratch complete with displaying the delivery address for a customer, status of deliveries, location on a map etc. The Author even states “This is a great app to prototype because there are many businesses that are looking for someone to create a similar delivery app for them…”
What he doesnt make clear is that what you will produce at the end of this book is a static app where all the information is hardcoded!!! The list of customers are laboriously typed in by hand into separate lines in a list view and when you select the customer and move to the next screen all the details have to be typed in my hand. No passing information from screen to screen, no change in what delivery status you clicked (he even hardcodes a tick agaist one of them to show you’ve selected it!). The majority of the text and video for this book just shows the author changing the text on labels to represent what a real functioning deliveries app might look like.
Be aware, what you produce at the end of this is totally useless for any real world application. There is NO code here - its all visual and although some people may think this is great,it is in no way programming and its impossible to do anything useful without ANY code!!!
I would definitely like a refund as this should have been pointed out in the sample book. For £6.49 what is covered in this book is outrageous as you will learn how to produce nothing more than a IOS version of a “Hello World” application at the end of it!

Apart from that Kevin is a genius.If you want to learn about IOS App development,just buy this book.
Excellent read and an engaging book
By Droplet Design
I really enjoyed working through this book, and for the first time I've been able to stay motivated to actually continue down the path of learning to develop for the iOS platform. I have tried several times before, but the structure of the books were intimidating and the way the information was presented made it difficult to grasp the overall concept.
Kevin McNeish as done a marvellous job at making this iBook interesting to read, interactive and engaging, and most of all fun to read.
I recommend "Diving into iOS' to anyone interested in learning to program iOS. I'm really looking forward to moving on the part two of the series.
THIS BOOK IS AMAZING. Great introduction. Easy instructions did the whole thing in 1.5 hours it is great then went on to develop as learn't more
Finally a great book to hold your hand through the basics and demystify iOS development. Can't wait to start the second book.
