We will also review some of the benefits of geocoding services to translate coordinates to a location with its relevant information. Geocoding has become a prominent feature on the iPhone and iPads and then increasing focus in app development. I am exited to be presenting iOS SDK Building Apps with Mapkit and Core Location.
