This app is just a great idea, and a very nice implementation allowing you to view the iOS documentation on your iOS device.  Especially on the iPad.

The app is from Ole Zorn and is very easy to set up.  Build it in Xcode to your device, and all the downloading of either iOS SDK or Mac OS X documentation is done right in the app.

Since it’s open source if you’re looking to create a similar app for viewing other documentation you can see how it’s done.

The app makes great use of iOS UI components on the iPad and even allows for bookmarking and opening in the browser if needed. Definitely a step above how Apple’s documentation reads online on the iPad, and you don’t have to connect to the internet after you’ve downloaded the doumentation.

Here’s a quick preview of the app in this video:

You can download the app from Github here.

If you want to view the iOS documentation on your Kindle Ole has a Python script converting the Apple developer documentation to the mobipocket format that can be found here.

Very handy for viewing documentation on the road.
