Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Designed for novice to intermediate users, My Samsung Galaxy S I V will combine step lists, tips, and full-color illustrative screen captures to familiarize the reader with the important capabilities of the device and how they’re used. As much as possible, each chapter will be self-contained; that is, with few exceptions, the topics in a given chapter will be covered entirely in that chapter. In addition, the book will attempt to present the material in a logical order that will anticipate when in the learning process the reader can be expected to need it.

 

In 500 pages, users will learn to configure the phone for initial use and later customize it, place and receive calls, manage their contacts, send/receive email from multiple accounts, browse the Web, take photos and shoot HD videos, transfer material to and from the phone, sync certain types of data, share material with friends, access their favorite social networking sites and chat programs, and resolve common problems.

 

• Harness the dazzling power of the new Samsung Galaxy S IV by following step-by-step instructions.

• Master TouchWiz, Samsung’s user interface for the Android operating system.

• Learn how to use the built-in cameras to shoot photos and self-portraits, create HD (High definition) movies, and share them with all friends and social networking sites.

About the Author

Steve Schwartz got an early start as a computer industry writer and author. Immediately after buying an Apple II+ in 1978, he began writing regularly for the computer magazines of the day. Since then, he has written hundreds of articles for major publications, including Macworld, PC World, InfoWorld, and Computerworld. He is also the author of more than 60 books on technology, game and computer topics, including guides to business/productivity software (Microsoft Office, Access, and FileMaker Pro), Internet software (Internet Explorer, Outlook Express, Entourage, and Gmail), and graphics/image-editing software (Picasa, Picture It!, Digital Image Suite, and CorelDRAW). Following his best-selling My Samsung Galaxy S III, this is Steve’s second book in the My series.

Before becoming a full-time writer in 1990, Steve served as editor-in-chief for Software Digest and technical services director for Funk Software. He also authored the first trade paperback on the then-new Nintendo phenomenon: Compute!’s Guide to Nintendo Games.

Steve has a Ph.D. in psychology, consults on game design, database design, and technology issues, and lives in the fictional town of Lizard Spit, Arizona. You can see the complete list of his published books at http://www.siliconwasteland.com/misc.htm.
