Editorial Reviews

Apple's iPhone just might be the holy grail: the single device that can really do everything. But only if you stretch it to its limits -- and then a little further. That's what you can do with Andy Ihnatko's iPhone Fully Loaded.

Ihnatko starts with music -- and, since the iPhone doesn't have a hard drive, you'll really appreciate his techniques for making its 4 gigs seem like 40, and automatically freshening your music every time you dock it.

Of course, music's not all you can play through iTunes. Ihnatko covers it all: TV, radio, even (get this) your own DVDs. There's a full chapter on ripping your own DVD library to iPhone-compatible Quicktime files, using CloneDVD on the PC, and Instant HandBrake on the Mac.

Steve Jobs wants you to use his music store, his software, his formats. But, as you've already seen, Ihnatko is out to liberate you. So there's a full chapter on listening to streaming audio that doesn't work through iTunes; and another on finding podcasts that aren't listened in Apple's directory.

Of course, the iPhone's not all "play": this book offers extensive coverage of its productivity tools: calendars, contacts, email (did you know you could listen to all of your current messages as a podcast?). The iPhone doesn't offer spreadsheet or database support, but Ihnatko points you to some nifty web-accessible workarounds. Ihnatko also covers iPhone maps, guides, and translators: everything you need to keep from getting lost, dazed, or confused anywhere on Earth.

Ikhnato, currently a Chicago Sun-Times columnist, has been one of the world's top Apple, Macintosh, and iPod writers for, basically, all of recorded history. He really gets Apple. He clearly gets the iPhone. But most of all, he gets you. Bill Camarda, from the December 2007 Read Only

Hoping to find new uses and work arounds for certain limitations. Nothing found that wasn't available on Apple's online manual or discussion groups. Not worth the money.
