iPhone 4 Made Simple helped me get so much more out of my iPhone 3Gs than I ever thought possible.
The extensive iTunes guide in the back of the book has shown me a bunch of cool new things - My wife and I both use iTunes so we can now share our music and save money with the iTunes Home Sharing feature. I created a few new Genius mixes - a whole new way to enjoy my music library. I also learned how to get PDF files into iTunes and onto my iPhone so I can read them anywhere. I'm in the advertising business and have lots of things to read that are in PDF format - so reading them on my iPhone in iBooks makes it so much more enjoyable.
Also, I loved the tip of how to download free e-books from the iBooks store by searching for `project Gutenberg.'
One thing that sets this book apart from any other tech book I've read are the abundance of large pictures and clear steps. This book was so easy to read. I was able to learn many of the tasks by just looking at the pictures.
I was amazed to learn that I could now schedule a meeting from underlined text in an email just by tapping it and scheduling a new event - that is really great.
I never knew about the free Evernote app described in the Notes chapter. This app allows me to store text notes, voice notes, and even picture notes. The app is amazing because I can snap a picture of a page of text and then actually search Evernote for the text within the image.
I signed up for the free email tips from the author's website which are great - I get bite-sized chunks of useful information every week or so.
For anyone with an iPhone running iOS version 4, I highly recommend this book. It will definitely help you get so much more out of your iPhone than you imagined possible.
