[Unity iOS Essentials] There are a lot of books on Unity and lot of books in iOS development. This book does a nice job of tying the two together in a single volume. This book focuses on creating Unity applications for the iOS platform. Since Unity is primarily a 3D engine, the focus of the book is also in 3D. This book does a great job of not only covering the Unity game engine, but also covering specifics that are related to applications targeted at the iPhone and iPad. – Robert Madsen
[Unity iOS Essentials] I liked the book as an in-depth exploration of the quirks of Unity programming on the iOS! I look forward to the time when I’ll be ready to do an iOS game, and I can put all the information in Unity iOS Essentials to good use. – B. Figgins
[Unity iOS Essentials] Overall, I’d recommend this book to someone who already has Unity experience, and for others like me, to learn about Unity first, and then how to apply it to an iOS device. – Ryan
