Few platforms match the iPhone’s unique developer technologies. It combines
OS X-based mobile computing with an innovative multitouch screen, location awareness,
an onboard accelerometer, and more.When Apple introduced the iPhone Cocoa
Touch SDK beta in early March 2008, developers responded in numbers that brought
Apple’s servers to its knees. Apple delivered more than one hundred thousand SDK

The iPhone SDK provides the tools and resources needed to create native iPhone applications that appear
as icons on the user’s Home screen. Unlike a web application, which runs in Safari, a native application runs
directly as a standalone executable on an iPhone OS–based device. Native applications have access to all the
features that make the iPhone interesting, such as the accelerometers, location service, and Multi-Touch
interface. They can also save data to the local file system and even communicate with other installed
applications through custom URL schemes....

Several colleagues and friends informally reviewed my initial proposal and selected chapters. This wonderful group included Nicole Celichowski, Blake Engel, Wendy McKennon, and Rachel Wear. Over the course of writing the book, I reached out to two mailing lists: the Silicon Valley iPhone Developers and IXDA (Interaction Design Association). I appreciate all of the individuals who read and responded to my questions. Also, a big thanks to Michelle Reamy for collaborating with me on user research in the early stages of the book.
