Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

My iPad is a task-based tutorial that provides users with step by step instructions punctuated with clear visual cues on full-color images. As noted by a reviewer of a previous edition on Amazon: "What caught my interest initially in this manual was that it was filled with labeled, colored pictures referred to as 'callouts.' Maybe I'm just simple minded, but I believe in the old adage, 'A picture is worth a thousand words.' The instructions are numbered and refer to an adjacent photo that is also numbered. This makes it so much easier to follow the instructions."

 

My iPad offers readers a full-color, fully illustrated, four-color step by step resource to using their iPad. Each task is stepped through with corresponding visuals that are numbered to match the step they are referred by. Notes and sidebars give additional insight into using the iPad without requiring the reader to sort through paragraphs of text to find the information they want. Tasks are clearly titled to help the reader quickly and easily find things they want to accomplish on their iPad. Everything from setup and configuration to using apps like Pages and Maps is clearly illustrated and easy to follow. Learn how to use the iPad's two cameras to take pictures and video and share them with friends or chat with them live.

  • Use Siri to dictate email, messages, notes and more
  • Take video with the front and rear camera
  • Video chat with your friends using FaceTime over Wi-Fi or cellular
  • Stream audio and video to Apple TV and other devices
  • Connect your iPad to your Wi-Fi network and cellular networks
  • Synchronize data between your computer and iPad
  • Share photos using Shared Photo Stream

  • Watch movies, TV shows, YouTube, or home videos
  • Quickly and easily keep up with your social networks using integrated FaceBook and Twitter features
