iPad Portable Genius is an easy-to-use, easy-to-understand guide for quickly getting the most out of Apple’s new iPad.
Mac users are passionate and loyal and these books capture that same feeling in pedagogy and series style. Titles in the Portable Genius series are not comprehensive; instead they aim to provide readers with the most accessible, useful information possible by giving readers tips and techniques for the most used features in a product or software. These books tell readers what they may not find out by just working with a product or software. Genius icons present smart or innovative ways to do something; in many cases, this will be a way that readers can save time or hassle. A smaller trim size makes it handy, but also easy for readers to find essential information and tips for their iPad.
The Genius is in.
