Whether you're still considering becoming an iPad owner for the first time, have just broken the seal on your newest iDevice, or have had your new iPad for a few months and would consider yourself to be something of an apple genius, this book has something to offer you.I probably would have thrown myself in that third category (somewhere beyond basic competence), but then again I thought that about my iPhone proficiency before checking out its missing manual (iPhone: The Missing Manual) and ended up learning how to use features I didn't even know existed. So I assumed that I probably didn't know as much as I thought about the iPad and picked this guide up. That assumption turned out to be very right.This book is the most comprehensive guide for the new iPad that I've ever picked up. It covers virtually everything you'd need to know from the time you take the iPad out of the box through the day you restore its factory settings and sell it to the kid down the street. The Missing Manual is broken in 16 chapters which seem to flow logically from an overview of the iPad and how to interact with it (a nice beginner level introduction that makes the book approachable for even the most novice iPad user), to getting online (and everything that comes with it like messaging and email), to working with apps (both built in and selected third party apps), to music and iTunes, and finally to taking, editing, and sharing photos and videos. There's also a quick chapter on using iCloud to back up your data and two appendices that look at general settings and troubleshooting your iPad.
Apple has unbelievably sold more than one hundred million iPads, however, as the case with most computer products today, you won't find a printed comprehensive manual included with your purchase of this fantastic tablet, although you will find a little card that is difficult to read with little information. We all know how frustrating and time consuming it can be when we don't have a friendly manual to refer to and this is why O'Reilly Media has come to our rescue with J.D. Biersdorfer's iPad the missing manual (5th edition).Biersdorfer is a New York Times columnist and the bestselling author of previous editions of iPad The Missing Manual as well as other Missing Manuals.With this informative guidebook readers will now be able to easily find numerous fascinating iPad features which are conveniently organized by task and topic spread over seventeen chapters and 2 appendices which concern settings and troubleshooting.Topics covered include setting up and touring the iPad, interacting, getting online, surfing, keeping in touch with email and messaging, organizing apps, purchasing from the App store, reading iBooks and ePeriodicals, game playing, getting productive with iWork, syncing and sharing media files, mastering iTunes, managing and playing music and other audio, watching creating, and editing videos, view. Shooting, editing and managing photos, backing up and syncing with iCloud.Throughout the book the author employs a short hand system for part of her instructions keeping the manual user friendly and helping you get the most from the manual. There are also references to websites that offer additional information and resources.
