The VISUAL QUICKSTART GUIDE: GOOGLE NEXUS 7 TABLET is probably the only manual I'll ever need for my new Nexus 7 mobile device. What I want to know--as soon as possible--is where to find the various settings, and what the settings actually do. Because I'm already familiar with navigating tablets (a 1st Gen Kindle Fire and an iPad 2), settings and feature information is all I really need.This book tells you, in concise, simple language, how to do everything that the Nexus 7 is capable of doing (e.g., connect to a VPN, share with Android Beam, sync accounts and calendars, manage notifications, etc.). Photographs and screen shots ensure that you'll know when you've found the right button or screen for the operation you want. There are lots of tips (e.g., use "Airplane Mode" to quickly turn off all battery-draining wireless services), many useful chapter cross-references, and an excellent index. The book doesn't explain how to print from the Nexus 7--probably there's an app for that--but it does tell you how to transfer downloaded photos and files to a PC (which can print them).What makes this book so great is that the step-by-step instructions and accompanying explanations are always totally on point and blessedly brief. The print edition (which I bought because I wanted a reference to quickly flip through) has a really nice "extra"--there's a code that lets you download the book from the publisher's Peachpit web site, in your choice of digital formats (pdf, mobi, or epub), for easy transfer to an ereader, Kindle, tablet, or other mobile device.
I gave my wife a Nexus 7 "32" for Christmas and she did pretty will with some of the simple things, but since there is no guide with the Nexus, I looked around and bought two books. This one and the "Nexus 7 for Dummies" Of the two, I rate this one higher as it gives better explanations for everything one needs to turn the Nexus from an "Oh Okay" tablet to one that is really an effective tool.
This has been such a great help; love being able to read the book while looking at the N7 screen. Very easy to understand & follow. Table of contents & index make it easy to find your problem areas.
Frankly I could not figure the d#$% thing out. I felt as if my droid had ADHD. It implusively misbehaved unable to sit still. It'd flip/flop between portrait and landscape and whenever I followed it went another way.Read the book, an easy read, and never guess what? The d#$% Droid is easy as pi. Just got to know when to pinch it, or poke it, or flick it to get it to do "the right thing."I am embarrassed to tell the years of professional computer experience under my 62 yo belt. I am once again the wiz.
It really helps to set up and understand more about the tablet. Happy it has kindle edition, just great. Thanks
Of the 7 or 8 starter guides I've read this is the clearest, most detailed and thoroughly helpful in getting me up to speed in using my new Nexus. I still refer to it most for fine tuning. Others had more info on non-native apps, but for overall use, this is the best so far.
Step by step easy to follow user guide. It has become my reference bible for Nexus 7. I saw that Nexus has one in their softwares, but I found it always good tohave a user manual on your side to eliminate the hassle of flipping the screen back & forth. Great book for entry level into the world of rapidly advancing high tech.
Having this manual along with my nexus 7 makes it so much easier to learn all about this tablet as you work on it. Easy to read and understand.
