I was writing an extremely disappointed review for "iOS Swift Game Development Cookbook: Simple Solutions for Game Development Problems", and in that review I mentioned that in most areas this book is far superior, so I thought that I'd better jump over here and give this book 5-stars.The book doesn't cover 3D in any usable detail for game development, but in every other area it is great!
i like this book a lot. i am new to swift -- i suppose we all are -- and most of the neat stuff on iOS. i like his code, first off. he's a real coder, and i like the organization. it's been invaluable ...
Helpful in jumpstarting projects in Swift. Each solution explains concepts enough to provide a basis to experiment further.
Seems like a great book to get you started with Swift. The developer/author seems to be active: updating the GitHub project that corresponds with the examples in the book.
needs to have a website for updates and fixes, hard to write code when there are errors and you don't know what it should be
I picked this book up after being a fan of O'Reilly's books for years.This is a good cookbook, but it is not a learning resource. Picking it up as a learning resource was perhaps a mistake on my part, but the blurbs indicate it was desigend for learning as well.The recipes are all solid and interesting, and most are useful. They are covered in a clear way, but you need to know Swift to understand what's going on in all but the most basic ones.A decent book.
Great book and I've used it several times already. Good formula of "this is a problem, and how we solved it".
