When it comes to designing and creating apps for the iPhone, developers Paul Zirkle and Joe Hogue wrote the book. Seriously, they wrote the book. Well, a book, anyway, entitled iPhone Game Development, now being published by O’Reilly Media. Zirkle and Hogue, veteran mobile developers for Konami and EA, respectively, have compiled a complete guide to the iPhone development process — all the way from designing software for the iPhone’s unique features, up to navigating the submission and publication process.
“Apple is a really strong company to partner with, and the doors are open. And yet, the true potential for iPhone games has yet to be tapped; there is still plenty of room for innovation out there,” said Zirkle in a press release. Promising an introduction to programming, tips on implementing helpful APIs, and more, iPhone Game Development is available for aspiring mobile magnates for $34.99.
