hi all - i am a neophyte into ipad programming, but not programming itself. Been reading through the book and doing the exercises but i'm not finding the areas i think i need to complete a project i have to do. Simply, i have 28 png images i need to display (It's a children's book a client wants to have available on the ipad/iphone). when the user touches the screen the next image appears. As they may need to go back to a previous page, i figure i need a button to allow that. My thinking is that i need two tables, one for horizontal view and one for vertical view. I also need a global index that can be used between the two tables to insure I get the right page regardless of the orientation of the ipad. I'm concentrating on chapters 3 and 7 as the guide to accomplish this feat. Question is, is this the right design for what i want to do? or is there some canned code out there that already does this that i can either review or modify (no sense re-inventing the wheel). If anyone has any suggestions or knows of a place i can go to review established code, I would greatly appreciate it ... thanks, d

Chapter 12 is probably of more use to you.There are some implementations that accomplish what it appears you want to do. You can choose to have page turns with swipes, or allocate an area of the screen (e.g. on the right to advance, left to go back) to interpret taps as page turns. You also could implement the same methods with forward and back buttons.
Refer to Chapter 6 for information on screen orientations.
Let me know if this helps, or if there are further questions.
