World-renowned iOS expert Erica Sadun covers device-specific development, document/data sharing, Core Text, networking, image processing, onboard cameras, audio, Address Book, Core Location, GameKit,StoreKit, push notifications, and more. As in her previous bestselling iOS books, Sadun translates today’s development best practices into working code, distilling key concepts into concise recipes that are easy to understand and transfer into your own projects. This isn’t just cut and paste. Using her examples, Sadun fully explains both the “how” and “why” of advanced and specialized iOS 6 development. All code is tested with iOS 6 features and iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch capabilities. Throughout, every chapter groups related tasks together, so you can jump straight to your solution without having to identify the right class or framework first. Coverage includes Testing device properties so your app can take full advantage of the iOS unit it’s running on Seamlessly sharing documents and data across apps and moving control between apps Presenting exceptionally attractive text with freeform text typesetting Building touch-based apps that leverage Bezier curves, splines, and other geometric tools Securing network apps via authentication, system keychains, and OAuth Accessing and processing image data to create special effects Integrating live camera feeds and user snapshots Presenting audio to users and enabling them to interact with it Effectively using Address Book frameworks and GUI classes Building advanced location apps with Core Location geopositioning and MapKit Creating connected game play with GameKit/Game Center: device-to-device networking, shared leaderboards, and Internet-based matches Integrating secure in-app purchasing with StoreKit Communicating with users from web-based services via push notifications
Single and Multi-Chip Microcontroller Interfacing teaches the principles of designing and programming microcontrollers that will be used in a wide variety of electronic and mechanical devices, machines and systems. Applications are wide, ranging from controlling an automobile to measuring, controlling and displaying your home's temperature. The book utilizes the new Motorola 68Hc12 microcontroller as the primary example throughout. This new microprocessor is the latest development in mid-level 16-bit microcontrollers that will be used world wide due to its low cost and ease of programming. The book features the most popular programming languages--C and C++--in describing basic and advanced techniques. The 68Hc12 will replace many of the existing 8-bit microprocessors currently used in applications and teaching. First book available on the new Motorola 68HC12 microcontroller Thorough discussion of C and C++ programming of I/O ports and synchronization mechanisms Concrete discussion of applications of the popular, readily available, inexpensive and well-designed 68HC12 Many examples and over 200 problems at the end of each chapters Separate sections describing object-oriented interfacing This book is ideal for professional engineers as well as students in university courses in micro-processors/microcontrollers in departments of electrical engineering, computer engineering or computer science; It is also appropriate for advanced technical school courses. The book will also be a valuable professional reference for electrical engineers and mechanical engineers in industry working with the design of electronic and electromechanical devices and systems

Developing C# Applications for iPhone and iPad using MonoTouch shows you how to use your existing C# skills to write apps for the iPhone and iPad. Fortunately, there's MonoTouch, Novell's .NET library that allows C# developers to write C# code that executes in iOS. Furthermore, MonoTouch allows you to address all the unique functions of the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad. And the big plus: You needn't learn any Objective-C to master MonoTouch! Former Microsoft engineer and published app-store developer Bryan Costanich shows you how to use the tools you already know to create native apps in iOS using C# and the .NET Base Class Libraries. The magic is in Novell's implementation of Apple's Cocoa libraries in MonoTouch. You'll master the same elegant and rich Cocoa environment, but without the need to learn a new programming language. Developing C# Applications for iPhone and iPad using MonoTouch takes you from your first "Hello, World" example through the major APIs and features of iOS. The coverage is comprehensive and makes use of frequent examples, complete with sample code you can download and reuse to create your own powerful and playful apps.
