2.0 out of 5 stars Too simplistic Jan. 16 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is very basic and probably most appropriate for someone who is not familiar with apple technology at all. This is my first ipad, but I still found this book too simplistic despite my limited technical knowledge.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for iPad / iOS 7 newbies (like me) Dec 27 2013
By Hal Lancer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I got my first iPad a few weeks ago and found it fairly intuitive to use but had a strong urge to learn more about how to get some things done. I bought this book from Amazon in Kindle format which runs on the iPad using an app; this was also my first e-book. (It can also be purchased at the Apple Store but is cheaper on Amazon at this writing; the Kindle App for iPad works well.) I always learn better by trying things out after reading about them in a manual, and going through this e-book and experimenting, I realized the iPad can do very many things well I was not aware of.

This book does not assume the reader has any prior experience with iPads or iOS. The labeled screenshots--numbered dots corresponding to numbered points in the text descriptions--are very helpful in showing the reader where to find certain settings.

If you have a new iPad in late 2013/early 2014, you will be using iOS7, so be sure to get a book like this one that was written for iOS7.

Is it better to get this in e-book or hard copy format? This question cuts both ways. It is very helpful to always have it with you on the iPad. But on the other hand, tablet computers don't multitask as well as laptop computers; if you have this on the tablet in e-book format, when you want to try something out such as change a setting, you will have to temporarily exit the e-book app and go hunting on the iPad for the feature with which you want to experiment, then return to the e-book app. On the other hand, you will get good at iPad navigation doing this! Still if I had it to do over again, I think might have learned faster if I'd bought this in published book format rather than e-book, because there were many times when I had to keep referring back to the e-book app, sometimes several times on a page. (Maybe I need both formats!)

All in all, an excellent value and highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Reference and User Guide for Your iPad Dec 8 2013
By Dr. Bojan Tunguz - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
It has been said many times already, but it's worth repeating: iPad is one of the most revolutionary devices that have come around in years. iPad is truly revolutionizing how we approach the use of computers, and it is bound to have an impact on all of the other computing devices. Since iPad's initial debut other computing platforms (Android, Windows, etc.) have launched their versions of a tablet computer, but so far they have not had nearly as much success as iPad. iPad is an always-on, easily accessible and intuitive computing platform. It is fully integrated and takes advantage of Apple's ecosystem of apps and service. Even though the ease of use is one of its hallmarks, if you have never used an iPod or an iPhone you may have some initial difficulties with using it.

iPad Air has been the biggest improvement on the original iPad concept yo date. This device is thinner, lighter, faster, and it's equipped with two cameras, one on each face of the device. It is even more fun to use, and you almost start to feel that you could almost entirely ditch your computer.

"My iPad" aims to take away the mystery behind iPad and help you make the most of it. The book 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). The book also covers some of the most important and useful general iPad apps, such as maps, Keynote, Numbers and Pages, Keynote, iMovie, etc. It also gives a short list of some other cool apps with a brief description of each. Even seasoned iPhone, iPad, iPad Mini or iPad Air 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. The book is large, well presented, and easily navigable. The illustrations and screenshots are fairly large and very clear and they help to illustrate all the relevant material. It is a very intuitive guide for a very intuitive device.

As a side note, I have written this entire review on my iPad. I still don't use it as a full-fledged laptop replacement (nor was it meant to be used that way), but with addition of an external keyboard it can go a long way of meeting most of your daily productivity needs.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good information, well presented Jan. 13 2014
By Mike Holmes - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I bought my iPad to use for remote work on my website and writing projects. Most "guides" to using them seem to focus on playing games and taking pictures. Even when Apple tries to pint out business uses, they seem to think charts and pie graphs are all that are needed. This "book" taught me a whole lot about using my iPad for writing and managing photos very quickly, and I expect to learn a lot more from it about the sort of uses I want to put my tablet to.

Being an iOS instructor at a local senior computer club, I need to keep up with all the latest technology. I find manuals by Gary Rosenzweig to be informative and very easy to follow. I like that Amazon lets me preorder these books.
