Book: iPod touch Made Simple


Still a good find. I need one for the iPad for my parents which are getting older and forget how to use some of the options within the app itself like attaching files in email and such.

I find iOS extremely simple but compared to everyone around here I'm considered an iPhone guru. Not that I know a whole bunch, I guess most people don't try to use things to it's fullest potential. When I first got my 3G all I did was yearn for knowledge. Guess it's just a different breed of people...

If the "finger tips" combined with common sense doesn't cover it, you might wanna reconsider having an iPod Touch/iPhone/iPad.

Really? I probably could have written that book! Why do you find out about great things you should have done, after someone else does them?
