Good overview for a .NET programmer
This book was like sitting down with a friend and him explaining iOS by relating it to concepts I am familiar with in .NET. Josh provides a good high level introduction with pointers to deeper explanations of advanced topics. His real world experience shows with the guidance he provides. I found this book very useful.
A Superb Survey
Josh Smith's book is a superb survey of professional iOS development from the perspective of a migrating .Net developer.
Read it first to get a lay of the land, and translate your existing knowledge into iOS. Return to it after more study, to
reinforce best practices for iOS enterprise development. This is your guide to becoming a 'professional'.
