I love this book. Terrific title and good resource for iPad owners
on May 19, 2012
I am not great at writing book reviews but I'm going to try with this book. I bought my first iPad two months ago (3rd generation) and I was reassured at the time that it was an "intuitive product" and very easy to learn all the details as I went along. What my Son, daughter-in-law and 3 grandsons didn't know was that for me "intuitive" was not good enough. Sure, I could turn my iPad on, adjust the volume on a video, make pages larger or smaller, search the net (Safari), buy some interesting apps and load up on some free ones.
But how do I lock the screen so it stays horizontal, not vertical? I bought a Brookstone keyboard and iPad cover (LOVE IT) to use for typing letters and documents so I want to decide where my screen stays. And now that I have 200 fun apps how do I organize them into folders on my home page so I don't have to spend 5 minutes figuring out what page to scroll to for "photography" apps or where all the "Blog" pages are (yes, I have them divided by politics (conservative, libertarian, liberal). And I have Blogs that are economic, house related, entertainment, games, medical, financial, etc. and they have their own sub-folders in the main folder. Organized for my convenience thanks to this book and one other "My iPad." And thanks to these two books I can actually learn at my pace what I want and need to know.
This book is well written, explains things easily and the author has a wonderful sense of humor. TY for writing this book!
