    "I have been a loyal Apple fan since the release of the iPhone 3. Yeah, I know, I am pretty old. LOL Anyway, Apple's sophisticated way of developing games and applications inspired me to learn Objective C language. Interestingly, I thought this book would focus only on Objective C but upon reading it, it also touches the very basics and fundamentals of programming--from variables, structures, and file systems. I guess I have to re-read my book about Algorithms again to refresh the concepts in my mind. I hope to have a license to develop an iOS app next time :D"

    "The best part of this course site is that they go beyond teaching you how to program using objective c language. Well, if you are into the basics, they offer intensive courses for that but what I really appreciate is that they will help you find your perfect job suited for your skill or even venture into your own business."

    "Easy to follow instructions are part of the tutorials in this book which I really like. I have learned how to port exisiting objective c apps into Swift (well this is for iOS), and develop it further. You'll also learn how to set up xCOde for swift apps, and all. For its price, it is pretty decent I must say (although I would still consider free online courses)"

    "Just a little info, I think Pluralsight and Code School already merged because when I visited their site, they are merged already. Anyway, web development and hard programming are the main specialization of this platform website. I was once a student of an online course from here and I think our edge is that we are directly linked to Pluralsight which is an actual training and a consulting firm. There are free learning modules for object c if you really interested. You just have to sign up to avail them,."

    "Planning to avail the ebook version of this book so I can carry it wherever I go. I already have the hard copy and read several pages of the introductory part to the basics of objective c and I can honestly say that it is step by step and really helpful for newbies like me. I dont even have background for C language but this book took me by surprise as it touches all the basics of object-oriented programming."

    "They still have a discount when you enroll to this crash course but I think it is too pricey for working students. I just thought my parents about this because my older brother's batchmates took this course and they already know in-depth information about programming apps for iOS. I wanna learn how to convert objective C iOS apps into Swift I hope I get to learn it after taking this crash course. "

    "Tip: You will need a MAC computer and the developer software Xcode 8. I don;t think this course is for beginners as it barely touches the basics. The lecture assumes at least a prior knowledge about Objective C at least. Anyway, I am now on my way to creating featured games. Althought I think the price of this course is a bit high than I what I expect. Still, worth it"
