Now that multicore processors are coming to devices, wouldn't it be great to take advantage of all those cores without having to manage threads? This concise book shows you how to use Apple's Grand Central Dispatch (GCD) to simplify on multicore devices and OS X. Managing your application’s resources on more than one core isn't easy, but it's vital. Apps that use only one core in a multicore environment will slow to a crawl. If you know how to program with or Cocoa Touch, this guide will get you started with GCD right away, with many examples to help you write high-performing multithreaded apps.
