Nick Kuh, an experienced, Apple award-winning developer, will teach readers how to build an iOS 6 iPhone app from start to finish in 5 days.

During a 5-day process you will learn how to build a professional, custom-designed, object-oriented iPhone App. You値l start with a PhotoShop PSD design and an app idea. Then, throughout the remainder of the book, Nick will guide you through each stage of building the app. But it痴 you who will build the app. You will learn how to think like an app developer, how to turn an idea into a beautiful iPhone app.

In addition to the code and programming practices introduced, the book includes numerous tips, tricks and lessons learned to help new iPhone App developers succeed on the App Store: SEO, in-app marketing approaches and how to win more 5 star reviews.

The 5-day learning process is divided into the following key stages:
