Abstract

From a technical standpoint, programming for the iPad is pretty much the same as programming for any other iOS platform. Apart from the screen size, there’s very little that differentiates a 3G iPad from an iPhone, or a Wi-Fi iPad from an iPod touch. But in spite of the fundamental similarities between iPhone and iPad, from the user’s point of view these devices are really quite different. Fortunately, Apple had the good sense to recognize this fact from the outset and equip the iPad with additional UIKit components that help create applications that better utilize the iPad’s screen size and usage patterns. In this chapter, you’ll learn how to use these components. Let’s get started!
