Apress acquires rights to best-selling SpiderWorks books

IT Professional book publisher Apress, Inc., has acquired the rights to best-selling titles Learn C on the Macintosh and Learn Objective-C on the Macintosh from SpiderWorks, LLC. The deal will see author and SpiderWorks CEO Dave Mark reshaping the acquired titles to become part of a fresh, new-look Mac development book series for Apress.

As well as the two SpiderWorks best-sellers, Apress has also acquired a currently-in-development title that will publish as Beginning iPhone Development: Exploring the iPhone SDK.
These books, together with other forthcoming titles, will allow developers to quickly and efficiently learn how to create both native desktop Mac applications and native iPhone applications using the latest Xcode tools and Apple SDKs.
