Bottom Line: This was a fabulously helpful book. Read it cover to cover, but I will keep it on my iPad as an electronic reference work on how to use tons of the apps I use the most.

Its a rare book that can both teach beginners and power users. This is one of those books. Many apps he covers I already use, but learned some new tricks for them along the way. What was most valuable to me as a power user was how to make everything work seamlessly. One example: Dropbox and iCloud were old hat, but D

Excellent book for new or experienced iPad users. I've been using iPads since they first came out but I still picked up a few things here and there. The real winner for me though is the fairly extensive descriptions of software. It took me forever to finish the book because I kept buying software to try out. I worked my way through Numbers and Bento and incorporated them into my workflow before I finished the book. The explanations of the programs in the book are extensive enough, especially wit

Some interesting app recommendations but I didn't really learn much else. Many of the recommendations appeared to be creating work for works sake and not really improving efficiency which is the reason I bought my iPad. I also felt that there were a lack of recommendations for managerial workflow, reviewing work from subordinates, and then sending it back to them with recommendations.

Boleh membaca dengan pantas buku ini jika anda memang biasa menggunakan ipad. Banyak aplikasi berbayar dan percuma yang dicadangkan bagi membantu tugas di pejabat. Hanya satu aplikasi yang menarik perhatian saya ketika mencari aplikasi pdf reader iaitu Perfect Reader. Kini boleh membaca file pdf sama seperti format epub menggunakan ibook.

Excellent, I found this very useful and have picked some tips and some new apps that I might well use at some point. I thought I was an iPad expert before reading, but now I think I can fully justify it. :)

This book, as is true of everything David Sparks writes, is clear, easy to understand, and full of great information about apps and device capabilities. I wish that his workflow examples were more detailed; this would make the book more useful, and useful longer.

I found out that I need Windows 8 or Vista to get the business apps. I have Windows 7. I may update. Our daughter is trying out the business apps. so I will wait for her take on them after she uses them a while.

Sparks recommends very useful practical applications to help the user get a jump start on selecting a productive toolset. A MUST read for new iPad users.

Great resource! Clear description of tools and apps. Enjoyed the qr codes as it made the work accessible and engaging.

A great, general overview of using the iPad at work or on the go. The emphasis, obviously, is using to get things done. It's an easy read and very informed.
