The iPad is cute, lovable, fun to play with, and a bit mysterious. This second edition of the best-selling My New iPad removes the mystery, showing every user how to get more from their new iPad. This simple, patient, and complete guide to the iPad shows readers, step-by-step, how to do what they want to do right away, like surf the Internet, send email, listen to music, take notes, read ebooks, and play with photos. Wallace Wang, bestselling author of My New Mac and My New iPhone, walks readers through the iPad's many useful features, like using the Maps app and compass; shopping on iTunes and the iBook Store; customizing the iPad's appearance; setting parental controls and privacy; editing Office documents; and getting organized with the Notes, Calendar, and Contacts apps.

Pages:352 Print ISBN:978-1-4493-8976-5
How can you make your iPad or iPhone app stand out in the highly competitive App Store? While many books simply explore the technical aspects of iPad and iPhone app design and development, App Savvy also focuses on the business, product, and marketing elements critical to pursuing, completing, and selling your app. Whether you're a designer, developer, entrepreneur, or just someone with a unique idea, this book explains every step in the process, with guidelines for planning a solid concept, engaging customers early and often, developing your app, and launching it with a bang.
Title:Best iPad Apps
By:Peter MeyersPublisher:O'Reilly Media
Print Release:December 2010
Pages:240 Print ISBN:978-1-4493-9247-59248-2
With tens of thousands of apps available for your iPad, who knows what to download? You can try to sort through a gazillion customer reviews with a mix of 5- and 1-star ratings, but that’s a head-hurting time-waster. The stakes are getting higher, too: instead of freebies and 99-cent trinkets, the price of iPad apps is steadily creeping up and beyond their iPhone predecessors. Best iPad Apps guides you to the hidden treasures in the App Store's crowded aisles. Author Peter Meyers stress-tested thousands of options to put together this irresistible, page-turner of a catalog. Inside these pages, you'll find apps as magical as the iPad itself.

By Michael E. Cohen, Dennis Cohen, Lisa L. Spangenberg
Published Sep 9, 2010 by Peachpit Press.
Dimensions: 7 X 9
Bridging the gap between the palm-sized iPod touch and a full-sized computer, Apple's iPad offers enough screen area and horsepower to perform the day-to-day tasks most people want to do. Packed with practical knowledge, this book will walk readers through how to manage their most common projects, from the simple (setting up a calendar event) to the complex (planning a vacation) and everything in between. Readers will learn to use the iPad tools and applications by using them to create practical real-world projects and to master everyday tasks.
In this practical hands-on guide, you’ll learn how to
•Organize a party: Set up the calendar event, create invitations, invite attendees, and mail out the invites.
•Build a recipe scrapbook: Write up recipes in Pages (or find recipes via one of the useful recipe apps) and import pictures of the finished dish to go with the recipe in the book. Even learn iPad kitchen tips!
•Plan a vacation: Buy tickets, find destination activities, and map out directions.
•Watch videos: Stream videos with Air Video, convert high-quality movies from DVDs, and buy or rent videos from the iTunes Store.
•Get smart: Learn another language with one of the many translation apps available, and build an illustrated deck of flash cards with common words and phrases.
Plus many more useful projects—both big and small— to help you do stuff with your iPad.
