4. The Definitive Guide to SQLite

If you want to save some image, text to your iPhone. Study with this book.
If not, you don’t need to read it. It’s up to you and it’s optional.
Not only Apple’s Core Data is pretty difficult, but also you can re-use your knowledge when you have a chance developing Android Phone’s Application.


1. Lynda.com iPhone SDK Essential Training Course

My Comment :
If you are from C# Programming, it’s the best approach to study iPhone Programming.

2. VTC.com Developing iPhone Web Apps Tutorials

My Comment :
If you are developing web apps, or web view. This course is a good start.
However, teacher’s voice makes me dizzy. :-)
