It was killing me to be on vacation with iBooks Author shipping. I could not wait to get home to experiment with the new shiny bits.
Well for the last week I've avoided doing any of the real work I'm supposed to be doing and instead focused on building an iBook. Very cool, there are a few things that I don't know how to do better and a few process oriented things that I'm still working on but overall a great experience.
This iBook is about loading images on iOS. If you heard me a few weeks ago on the wonderful iDeveloper Live #33 episode I spend a bit of time going on about how cool Image I/O is. This book does a bit of investigative digging on how much better Image I/O is at loading images than using the 'really simple approach'.
Without further ado, here (open the link on your iPad and you can 'Open In iBooks', otherwise drag to iTunes and sync) is the book for your iPad reading pleasure.
Please let me know what you think!
