Overview

This video guides you through developing applications for the iPhone and iPad platforms that make use of the onboard sensors: the three-axis accelerometer, the magnetometer (digital compass), the gyroscope, the camera and the global positioning system. You'll learn how to make use of these onboard sensors and combine them to build augmented reality applications. This will give you the background to building your own applications independently using the hottest location-aware technology yet for any mobile platforms.

Mr Allan, goes into more depth than the other two video courses I have watched.  He walks you through a project, warts and all, to completion.  I have watched the section on 'The Basic Sensors- The Accelerometer' about 5 times now and still learnt something new.

I highly recommend this course.
