iPad Made Simple eBook - 50% off

iPad Made Simple

I had the pleasure a few months ago of doing some technical editing for Martin Trautschold and Gary Mazo's new book, iPad Made Simple. It's now available and here are the details:

iPad Made Simple explains all of the key features of the iPad, introduces what's new, and reveals dozens of time-saving shortcuts and techniques. The book has over 1,000 screen shots that are carefully annotated with step-by-step instructions. This book will teach you everything you need to know to get the most out of your new iPad. iPad Made Simple provides clear instructions on how to set up and use the iPad, illustrated explanations of all the key features, and hundreds of tips and tricks.

iPad Made Simple teaches readers how to master the new multi-touch display, buy books with iBooks, surf the web, organize and share photos and albums, and how to discover and download great Apps from the App Store. The book also tells users how to squeeze every ounce of power from Email, Calendar, Contacts, and iTunes as well as how to synchronize the iPad with an iPod touch, Windows, or Mac environment.

For any TiPb readers who might be interested in getting a copy of the eBook, perhaps for a friend or loved one so they stop bothering you for tech support, here's a handy link with a hefty built in 50% discount code:

iPad Made Simple eBook - 50% off


I purchased and downloaded this book 2 weeks before the printed version hit the shelves. It is a GREAT resource.
HOWEVER, the downloaded version requires a password each time you open it, and the original password I chose was changed by the download site when I purchased it to something I have a hard time remembering, and my roboform program will not work with it.
Had I known it would be such a hassel to use each time I would have waited for the printed version.
Not happy

This book intrigues me, however the price seems steep. I would also like to know if it is worth it. For example, name 3-5 things that made you say "Wow I am so glad I purchased this book".

Nowhere does it say what ebook format it is in or which devices it is compatible with or if it is portable between devices.

Its not portable, it only can reside on a PC or Mac and it can not be copied or carried on your Iphone or Ipad.
Its a pasword protected PDF file that can only be viewed on a computes and requires a password everytime you open it.
I paid full price and am not happy

There is certainly noticeably your bunch to help you realize about this. I suppose you've made certain pleasant ideas during includes as well.
