HASH(0xa3d544c8) out of 5 stars very helpful considering you can't find all this info on your own July 10 2011

Someday when Apple gets it together and puts out a manual you can actually buy, instead of printing out their on-line manual and wasting your ink and paper, this will still be useful because a collection of apps and their sites is always useful information.

HASH(0xa3d548f4) out of 5 stars Rather disappointing Feb. 23 2012

I thought this would be a really helpful book to have in sorting thru all the different apps for my new iPad, but I was really disappointed with the overall content. For me, there were only a few apps that sounded interesting, but overall I could have found the same info in the Apps Store and saved myself $13

HASH(0xa3d54b1c) out of 5 stars Great Info for the iPad User Dec 17 2012
By Janice T. Temple - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I just got an iPad 3. iPad apps were new to me. This book explains apps In a way that one can easily understand. It suggests a variety of apps for whatever interests the user. There are so many apps. One can see from this book which ones they can try or delete. All new computing devices come with so many items on the desktop or start menu, which is confusing and not useful to a user. This book talks about the apps that one might find very useful, both free or fee based, what is most popular, relevant, and even ones that aren't needed. All genres are there from which to choose, be it shows, music, cooking, places, homemaking, shopping, Yellow Pages, reference, books to download, finances, news, mail, organizers for contacts' info, etc., etc. It is a book that's fun to read. I think this is an important book for all iPad users, experts and novice.

HASH(0xa3d54c0c) out of 5 stars Please, please, please update! Oct. 7 2013

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This would have been a five star book for me if I had read it three years ago. The two authors did a comprehensive job of going through many iPad apps and choosing the cream of the crop. They offer up the pros and cons to help the reader choose the one that is right for the task s/he wants to accomplish. The chapter on accessories would have been especially helpful. I loved the tip about going to a craft store, and buying a cheap wooden plate rack for under $10 instead of an expensive stand. Unfortunately, this book was written in 2010, so it is hopelessly outdated. Oh, I still got some ideas for types of apps I might want to try, but the recommendations of specific apps are too old to help very much. I really, really, really wish they would update this book.
