Overview

It can be a concierge, camera, flashlight, game console, magazine, photo editor, panorama maker, note taker, travel planner, radio, bookstore, night-sky guide, GPS, music player, music maker, and plenty more…if only you could figure out which of the 250,000 (and counting) apps to put on your iPhone or iPad or iPod touch.

Author Glenn Fleishman set out to discover how to use your device to find a movie, read a book, retrieve a distant file, make a phone call, play a strategy game—to accomplish a host of useful, and sometimes completely unuseful, tasks. Glenn sifted through and road tested thousands of apps to find the nearly 200 programs that fit his criteria for interesting, entertaining, useful—and essential—five-star apps. His clear-eyed selections will surprise and charm you and help you complete tasks, have fun, be creative, and learn something.
