sdk IQ Review: iPhone Developer Reference

sdk IQ is a strange App to review (for me anyway). You see, it’s an App for iPhone developers and for people learning iPhone development and it includes tutorials and videos to hopefully make learning a bit easier and I am, quite frankly, not an iPhone developer (always full disclosure here on Pantppticon!).

A bunch of lessons and walkthroughts coveriny a variety of iPhone development topics

If you’re wanting to learn iPhone App development, I can’t really make a recommendation one way or another that’s worth anything about sdk IQ–I’m simply not an iPhone developer so I cannot faithfully and accurately judge the quality of the content inherent in the App. Therefore, if you are interested in learning iPhone development, you should probably take a look at sdk IQ because the people who have bought it and who are learning to develop iPhone applications have given it pretty positive praise on the App Store so far (4.5/5 stars).

There are a few videos (not for every topic) that walk you through some development topics

The video tutorials look nice and there are a ton of tutorials and walkthroughs of varying length covering various iPhone development topics. Is this App best for brand new developers or experienced developers? Again, I cannot say because I am not a developer. Coming at it from a complete non-programmer’s perspective and taking a look at the tutorials and videos, they do seem well made, however they don’t appear to be tailored to a complete newbie–you should probably have at least a little development experience to understand the lessons.

I'm lost already...but if you have an inclination to develop for the iPhone, sdk IQ is probably worth a look at least as a supplement to whatever other books or resources you're already using to learn

sdk IQ probably isn’t an app that’s going to take you from knowing zilch about any sort of development to making a triple-A quality iPhone game within 30 days–but what App can? What it will do is provide a ton of tutorials and videos and code samples that you can check out to help you out in your quest to learn more about iPhone development and hopefully become a better iPhone developer. And according to existing reviews of the App, it appears that the developer is very helpful and responsive to any questions regarding iPhone development. For $4.99 that alone seems like a pretty good deal. There is a Lite version available for free with a limited amount of content if you’d like to try it out first also.

Conveniently, you can email yourself the project files for the walkthrough you just went through

There can be no traditional Panappticon Verdict for sdk IQ that has any real meaning since again, I’m not a developer and am unqualified to truly review the content quality. However the App itself does what it says and performs well, and for that I can give it an unqualified 90/100. If you’re a developer and have used sdk IQ, or if you purchase it as a result of this review, please leave a comment and let me know how you enjoyed the App–your opinions regarding the quality of the content in sdk IQ are going to be more helpful to potential purchasers than mine can possibly be in this case.
