Format: Paperback
It is no exaggeration to claim that iPad has forever changed personal computing. In terms of its form factor, ease of use, and always-on accessibility, it has revolutionized how we consume digital information, interact with each other, and create unique content. With the introduction of iPad Mini and iPad Air Apple has again pushed the envelope of what tablet computing can achieve. These are, by far, the most powerful and intuitive personal computing platforms out there.

iPad's intuitive user interface is very easy to master, and yet there are few details and features under the hood that may require the use of a written resource. "The iPad Air and iPad mini PocketGuide" provides one such easy resource, and I'd recommend it to most owners of the latest iPad models.

This short pocket guide aims to take away the mystery behind the iPad and help you make the most of it. The guide is written in an extremely accessible and to-the-point style, and from the very outset it takes you straight to the actual demonstrations of how to achieve certain actions on your iPad. It helps you navigate the plethora of settings and adjustment options, and tries to make sense of them. This is in fact one of the book's greatest strengths - it is not just a bag of tricks, but also a clear and lucid explanation of the rationale behind every design option on your iPad (both hardware and software). Even seasoned iPad users will find many valuable tips and insights, and the book is a valuable reference for the long-term use.

I also enjoyed the format of the book. As the name suggests, it is rather small but I would still not attempt to put it in my pocket. The illustrations, although small, are very clear and help to illustrate all the relevant material.

I tutor dyslexic children and have used a wonderful Orton-Gillingham-influenced program for years now. Just recently the producer of this program released apps for the iPad that replicate the physical tiles used for instruction. I really wanted to be able to use these apps, but it meant purchasing my first Apple product about which I knew nothing. I'm a die-hard PC and android tablet user. Sooo...I needed some quick help to navigate my iPad Air. This little book has been a life-saver!
