Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It can be a concierge, camera, flashlight, game console, magazine, photo editor, panorama maker, note taker, travel planner, radio, bookstore, night-sky guide, GPS, music player, music maker, and plenty more…if only you could figure out which of the 250,000 (and counting) apps to put on your iPhone or iPad or iPod touch.

Author Glenn Fleishman set out to discover how to use your device to find a movie, read a book, retrieve a distant file, make a phone call, play a strategy game—to accomplish a host of useful, and sometimes completely unuseful, tasks. Glenn sifted through and road tested thousands of apps to find the nearly 200 programs that fit his criteria for interesting, entertaining, useful—and essential—five-star apps. His clear-eyed selections will surprise and charm you and help you complete tasks, have fun, be creative, and learn something.

Want to read a book or PDF or follow your Twitter, RSS , or Facebook feeds? You’ll find the perfect app for the job.

Ready to find the best action, word, and strategy games—so good, you may never put down your iPhone? We know the ones.

Yearning for Thai food in an unfamiliar neighborhood or looking to reserve a table at a local restaurant? This book points you to the perfect apps.

Need to track the delivery status of a package or turn your device into a barcode reader? Start reading and start scanning.

Want to watch a movie—either from the studios or of your own creation? Glenn can direct you to the perfect app. Plus essential apps that will stream music, make you more productive, keep track of files, and much, much more.

Synopsis:

A Useful Directory to the Best iPhone and iPad Apps offers reviews and recommendations for over 200 apps for the iPhone and iPad. Apple's handheld devices have many strengths, but the App Store is unfortunately not one of them. Sorting through and making sense of the more than 225,000 apps is bewildering, and this book takes on the task of finding the best. App categories will range from games to productivity, photography to utilities, health to finance.  Each app will get its own page, with a image or two highlighting the app's cool features and a write-up explaining why the app is an essential addition.
