Essential for every iPad owner
A must-have book for every iPad owner. As a new starter I found the explanations really easy to digest, and the expanding HD images perfectly illustrate each example. Very comprehensive tips range from the obvious to the more advanced.
I learnt that in the Contacts app you can tap on the address of a friend and Maps opens up to show you exactly where they live!
The presentation is fantastic, the writing is to the point, and the breadth of knowledge is second-to-none. I’m likely to keep the Handy Tips Guide permanently installed so that I can dip into it whenever I need it.
Excellent guide. Very detailed yet very simple to understand. I've learnt a lot of new things that I never knew my iPhone could do! Having owned an iPhone for a year, I wish someone had created a guide as good as this sooner! I would recommend this to all iPhone users. If you want to improve the experience of using the iPhone and utilise its full potential then this guide is a must.
Some good tips within this book, I recommend it.
