I'm not overly techie so was worried that the book would be above my understanding. Instead, it was very clear and felt like one of my tech buddies was showing me step by step why I would want this app and how to use it. You feel like the author is talking to you like a friend. I like that Beth says, "This is what I use...all the time...and this is why. Here are the pros and cons." A couple of times I had an "aha" moment where I went I already have this app but had never thought of using it the way Beth describes. This weekend, I'm planning some time to have it right next to my computer and my smart phone to actually implement her tips. Great job. Thanks!

If you value your time at all, read on. This book is packed full of goodies, it's well organized, and I even had some aha! moments myself (an awesome surprise given I'm in the communicate-with-technology business! BUT that's not the big deal here.

I am utterly convinced that the amount of time and money you'll save 1) finding the right apps for YOU (and NOT wasting time/money wading through an overwhelming amount other stuff), 2) knowing how to approach them, and 3) totally decreasing your learning ramp time is MONEY.

A few bucks for the book? It'll be the fastest, most painless productivity investment you've made this year. You'll look pretty cool, too, when you start making those fancy, shareable graphics...

First, there are WAY more than 27 apps profiled here.
Second, this book reads like it is your best friend telling you what apps to use.
Third, I consider myself tech savvy and I learned a ton.
I read it once, then read it again, then got it on Kindle so I could take it with me when I travel.
I use these resources ALL the time to increase my productivity.
Another GREAT book from Your Nerdy Best Friend.
Awesome!

This is the book I didn't know I needed. I am not tech savvy, but after reading through this book I feel confident I can pick and choose the Apps I need for business and fun. Each App is clearly explained, and many have additional tips or pictures to help the reader choose what is best for them. The author writes in an easy, conversational voice, and her book will be added to my permanent collection for continued reference.

This eBook is just as the title suggests, it is possibly a OK book for nerds. I am a techie type more than a nerd, yet, I decided to give this book a try. I find it OK, and so so, yet a little too out there for me.

What I did find helpful, and beginners will find helpful is the sections CLOUD APPS and the section on GOOGLE APPS.

I rate this 3.6 stars, rounded off to 4 stars.

The reason I rate this 3.6 stars is that in my opinion, some of these apps I did not find useful. However, this is a fun to read book and I will be trying out the different and special calendar apps that will sync with Gmail.

Lots of great tips in here. The author has actually put some effort into writing this book, unlike many e-books nowadays. It has been well edited and there were many apps that I hadn't heard of I will be trying. I had initially thought this book was going to be a brief summary of various apps and downloaded it for a quick skim it to see if there was anything useful that I hadn't heard of. Well I ended up reading the whole thing front to back because I really liked the author's humorous and clear writing style. Very easy to understand for us non-techy people.

Excellent overview and introduction to many task based apps. Some familiar, well known applications, others might be new to most people. I even found new uses for applications I have already been using, some of them for years. I think productivity and efficiency will be greatly enhanced through the review and use of these programs. Highly recommend.
