Customer Reviews

Disappointing for a David Sparks product

I’m a big fan of David Sparks and have purchased four other products of his. Frankly, this was a disappointing book and not up to his previous high standards. There are numerous typos, some empty references and a bit of clunky writing. While I know he spent a lot of time compiling this book it is poorly edited and not ready for release. If you are reasonably well read about the iPhone you’ll find too few nuggets here to justify purchase.

Great for everyone—regardless of experience using an iPhone

If you are a fan of David Sparks’ other impressive field guides, then this is a must buy and a no-brainer. This is the perfect companion to anyone that owns an iPhone and wants to get the most out of it regardless of whether they are a Power User or new to the iPhone altogether! Thanks David for all your great work on putting out a new field guide and the dedication to keeping it updated in the future :)

Outstanding Guide!

This is my 6th McSparky product; each one has been outstanding. I follow MacPower Users regularly and have owned an iPhone for about 7 years. I have learned so much from just these resources alone. I thought I had a good working knowledge of the iPhone. After reading David’s 455 page eBook, I found out just how much I have somehow missed! I picked up dozens of tips and, yes, even downloaded apps which I never knew existed (most were free).

I highly recommend this eBook. It is cheap at twice the price as are the other 6 products I have purchased. Very thorough and well organized. Thank you so much to what had to be a huge effort to produce!
