Learning Mobile App Development is unique in two ways: First, it's specifically designed to meet the needs of students in a classroom setting, making it ideal for use in college, technical, and advanced high school computer science programs that are rapidly incorporating mobile development into their curricula. Second, it offers insightful parallel coverage of both iOS and Android, helping students achieve mastery of either or both platforms as they gain a deeper comparative understanding of mobile development. Students are guided through developing an actual working app on both platforms; they learn about the entire mobile app development lifecycle, including issues associated with licensing and both public and enterprise distribution. This guide's tutorials have been extensively tested in developer training courses, and are designed to support individuals coming to mobile development with widely varying backgrounds. For those new to iOS, the authors also provide an introduction to Objective-C, the iOS platform's native language.
