Opening the iTunes Store. All modern printers can print to within one third of an inch of the edge of the paper.
There are no discussion topics on this book yet. This guide is now in its fourth edition and has been translated into French, German, Korean, Japanese and Chinese. The subject matter is challenging however so I would only recommend this book to someone who has at least basic experience with the C language and an object oriented language.
One of the few programming books which successfully caters to experienced programmers that are new to a specific field. Oct 21, Colin rated it it was amazing.

Books by Aaron Hillegass. His style is very approachable. He has created apps for Fortune companies, he could eat a gallon of flan and he can touch his tongue to his nose.
The book nac organized around example programs, not programming concepts, so it’s pretty much impossible to go back and skim to find a particular bit of code or concept.
But Aaron is no stranger to having such a huge impact. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read.
I would also recommend this book to iPhone developers new to Cocoa. But for the last five years, I have been looking over my shoulder for something terrible to happen.
Hillegass isn’t thorough enough. A reputation like this is difficult to maintain. It is important to us, however, that our slide shows go in and billegass of subversion easily.
