This app is basically recycled magazine content that a subscriber of any reasonable length will probably still have lying around. It is well organized and with a clean presentation so i can't say that it is a rip off at 6 bucks, but is it worth a third of the cost of one of several excellent books on the same subject that offer far more comprehensive coverage? I say no. Does it take full advantage of the unique features of an Ipad? Not really. Buy a book...or an ebook...or subscribe to the magazine...or subscribe to the magazine on your Ipad...just don't buy this.
Not what I expected from Fine Woodworking or Taunton press.
Not enough info for the money.
Not Worth The Money
Wish I had spent the 6 bucks on a good book on routers.
