There are so many things you can experience, watch, and even create using Apple’s iPad that it’s hard to know where to start. Thankfully, Macworld’s team of expert editors has created this straightforward guide to the iPad 2.
Inside this book, you’ll find a complete rundown of the best ways you can use your iPad to communicate, be productive, and enjoy multimedia. First activate your iPad and fill it with your favorite music, movies, television shows, podcasts, apps, and files using iTunes. This book will show you how to convert media for easy iPad consumption; master multitouch gestures and tweak system settings; keep your Home screens organized with folders and multitasking; and conquer the secrets of its virtual keyboard. In case you run into any issues while using your device, this book also contains invaluable troubleshooting advice, including how to protect your iPad from would-be intruders.
It may not have the power of a full-fledged notebook computer, but the iPad is great at adapting to your needs. Organize your Contacts, Calendar, and Mail with built-in apps, or chat with your friends using FaceTime. Turn your iPad into a work machine by creating documents, spreadsheets, and presentations, or share your files like a pro. Turn your iPad into an e-book reader with Apple’s iBook app, or into a picture frame with the instant slideshow button. Finally, create music, paint masterpieces, edit photos, or perform any number of other tasks with the great third-party apps available in the App Store.
Whether you’re brand-new to the iPad or a seasoned expert, this book will show you how to get the most out of your device.
