From Idea to App: Creating iOS UI, Animations, and Gestures
Shawn Welch (the guy who designs and develops all of our iOS apps at Kelby Media Group), just published a new book with Peachpit called, From Idea to App: Creating iOS UI, Animations and Gestures, and teaches you what you need to know about iOS to design and/or develop apps for the iPhone and iPad.

Shawn wrote this book for designers who are interested in iOS, not just for a technical audience.  One of the reasons website designers in a non-technical role are able to work the way they do is because of an inherent knowledge of what is possible in web design — they know how websites should behave and how developers work. While From Idea to App teaches developers how to write better code, it also teaches designers what they need to know in order to design and communicate a user experience in iOS back to a developer.

You can pick up your copy from Amazon and Barnes &Noble.
