Even though the iPhone/iPad SDK has proven to have quite a small learning curve for the majority of intermediate and advanced developers, there are still many developers doubting how revolutionary the iPad will be in terms of app development. While some are expecting iPad app development to take off with great new ideas and concepts taking advantage of the iPad’s large screen and other unique features, there are others that are still in the camp of “its just a big iPhone”. If you are interested in developing for the iPad, still on the fence, or want to learn more about the process and possibilities, we have found an great resource for you!
More than just an interesting read, Mac OS X (Cocoa), iPhone developer and user interface designer Matt Legend Gemmell’s guide/tutorial to iPad Application Design provides an in depth look at the possibilities of development on the device. However, he even talks about limitations in the development process, how to get around them, and how to take advantage of the SDK’s features. Matt also has a ton of other great resources on the site for learning about Mac OS X (Cocoa), iPhone development and user interface design. This is definitely a great resource for everyone from beginner to advanced iPad/iPhone developers. Check out the guide/tutorial here.
