Apple is giving Christmas presents early for Mac and iOS developers. These eBooks are available in the iBookstore which is free when you download it through your iPod touch, iPhone, or iPad. Apple is giving out six free development books on Mac OS X and iOS development. The books have just come out on the iBook application as of December 17, 2010. These books aren’t new, but they haven’t been available in the iBookstore. You can still download them in a PDF version at developer.apple.com. Many developers have already started on the PDF version, but it is handier to carry around the version in the iBookstore. You can read it anywhere you are such as riding a bus, at the coffee shop, or just for fun at home.

The six titles that are available are: Cocoa Fundamental’s Guide, The Objective-C Programming Language, iOS Application Programming Guide, Object Oriented Programming With Objective-C, iOS Technology Overview, and iOS Human Interface Guidelines. Many international developers have said that they can’t see that some books in the iBookstore. Apple has concentrated on getting more developers to make new games. Apple shows that they do care about their developers and by giving them free books, it shows that they want their App Store to continue to grow. Apple has been a dominate figure for developers because apps have been a huge success with Apple. Without developers, there wouldn’t be any handy devices or fun games. I know for a fact I wouldn’t be able to live without my games.
