    My selection, after being an avid iPhoner for 2+ years

    So, this book is basically a nice round up of iPhone apps. I just flicked through it for fun and was pleasantly surprised to find that this collection is 99% the same as mine after 2 years of sifting through thousands of apps in the store.

    Some of the info is a bit dated... e.g. Awesome note has got a lot more awesome off late. Also "Use Your Handwriting" (a MUST-HAVE) now has a 'GOLD' version that's * amazing.

    Not what I wanted

    Truthfully I could not find what I was looking for. I am looking for an app with Nutrion Facts for my Iphone5. I want it to list the sugar content, triglycerides, and cholesteral. Most all apps show calorie count and thats all they show,. I could not find what I was looking for in your book, Incredible IPhone Apps for dummies.
