Yes, the second iOS 5 title from my 10-day recording marathon in Graz in mid-October is now available online!
This more advanced workshop covers new opportunities open for the iOS developer following the release of iOS 5: Twitter integration, iCloud, new ways to easily customize the look of your apps, and storyboards.
It also goes through the use of Blocks and why you really need to know how to use them and covers how you can include sound effects and music library audio in your Apps.
All in all, the course covers 3 hours and 55 minutes – including one mega lesson on storyboards. This storyboard lesson can also be watched for free for a limited time from my video courses page!
To purchase the course for online on-demand viewing, follow the link from the above lesson back to the course overview page or click here…
As you can see if you look across to the right-hand sidebar of this blog, the course will also be available very soon on DVD, with an accompanying course booklet covering some extra materials to complement the course – including tips on testing and preparing your app for launch in the App Store and how to market your app. The DVD version of the course can be pre-ordered from Amazon using the link there, or by clicking here…
The thing that pleases me most about the two iOS 5 courses (see my previous blog post about the “Getting Started with iOS 5″ course) is not only that I managed to complete them while suffering from a bad cold AND you can’t notice it in my voice, BUT that I was able to record them within days of the release of iOS 5 and they are already produced and on the market within only a few weeks – great work from the video2brain and Peachpit post-production teams!
Together with the original iOS 4-based “iPhone and iOS Application Development Workshop” released earlier this year, the three courses give a comprehensive grounding for any iOS developer looking to build apps utilising a wide range of the available functionality for iPhone, iPad and co.
I’m looking forward to feedback from those of you who watch the free lessons or purchase and follow the courses – please do use the comment forms on any of the related blog posts or write directly to me under “mail” at this domain. You can also leave feedback for me on my Facebook Page if you wish!
All the best

This week I received an exciting parcel from my friends at video2brain:
Yes – the Facebook Application Development : Learn By Video Workshop DVD and book is here! I’ve checked around a few booksellers online and it’s shipping now!!!
Amazon.co.uk appear to be currently out of stock (good news for us, but not so good for you I’m afraid) but the .com link above should find some copies still in stock at the moment. Grab one quick – they’re going fast!
The benefit of owning the DVD course, apart from the nice packaging, is that you’ll also receive a copy of the accompanying 48-page book which builds on course content to discuss in more detail the building, and integration, of Flash/Actionscript-based Facebook applications – including a chapter on building a Facebook PHP framework and AMFPHP Gateway for use in Flash-based applications by my friend and daily colleague in the world of Facebook Development, Neil Young. Thanks Neil!
The book adds a lot of value to the course if you’re going to be involved in creating interactive Flash-based Facebook applications and I’d certainly recommend buying this edition of the course!
Don’t forget – Christmas is coming!
