"Take Control of Your iPad" v1.1 updated for iPad 3 and iOS 5.1
SEE DISCOUNT INFO BELOW
With the third-generation iPad and iOS 5.1, Apple continues to enhance the iPad experience, and while it's easy to turn the iPad on and tap around, becoming fluent with its features and making the most of its capabilities can take time and practice, especially given how hard it can be to find the right setting (such as silencing notification sounds from particular apps). To help you optimize your iPad experience (or to help a friend or relative when you don't want to be on call for every question), we've just released the 1.1 version of Tonya Engst's "Take Control of Your iPad," completely updated for the third-generation iPad and all the changes in iOS 5.1. The 188-page ebook is available for only $10.50 after the 30% MUG discount:
"Take Control of Your iPad" is designed to work at two levels. The person just getting started will learn about the special hardware components in the iPad, take a tour of the parts and ports on the edge of the iPad, and find tips on key accessories. Tonya provides advice on how best to answer questions asked by the Setup Assistant - including Location Services, Wi-Fi and cellular data Internet connections, Apple ID, iCloud, and Voice Dictation - plus assistance with setting up services that the Setup Assistant doesn't handle, including the passcode lock, Bluetooth and tethered connections, notifications, and an effective custom iTunes sync. The book also has real-world advice on buying and managing third-party apps.
On the other hand, if you have your iPad up and running already, the rest of the book helps you master core iPad apps such as Contacts, Photos, iBooks, Music, and Safari. So, for instance, you'll learn how to change contact labels and add Birthday and Related People fields in Contacts, how to sync your Google calendars and contacts to your iPad, how to configure which categories appear in your Spotlight searches, how to work with Photo Stream, which formats and transfer methods work with the Videos app, and more.
Among much else, you'll find answers to these common questions:
* What is Location Services, and is it okay if I turn it on?
* Should I back up to iCloud or to iTunes?
* How do I set up a Wi-Fi iTunes sync?
* How do I quit an app?
* How can I use AirPlay to stream music and video around my house?
* How can I type more effectively on the virtual keyboard?
* How do I share my purchased apps with family members?
* How do I set up notifications and control the sounds they make?
* What are smart techniques for organizing my Home screen?
* How do I organize my ebook library in iBooks?
* How can I make a playlist in Music?
* Should I turn on AutoFill in Safari?
* What is iTunes in the Cloud?
As always, thank you for your support of the Take Control series!
cheers... -Adam & Tonya Engst, Take Control publishers
