The Web Designer’s Guide to iOS Apps

Kristofer Layon’s The Web Designer’s Guide to iOS Apps is an informative intro to create an app with HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript using NimbleKit, the Objective-C framework. From installing the iOS SDK to creating contents to marketing and distributing your app, Layon demonstrates how web designers could pull together an app without knowing how to program. While the book helps readers get started, it doesn’t take them further than creating a simple web page for an app. I was expecting something more dynamic like how to pull in an RSS feed or hook up an API.
