Overview

My iPad for Seniors offers readers a full-color, fully illustrated, step-by-step resource to using their iPad to do everyday tasks such as web surfing and email. It covers apps to help with managing finances, planning travel, finding a restaurant, communicating with friends and family (using apps like Skype and FaceTime), organizing and editing photos, and much more. Each task has corresponding visuals that are numbered to match the step in the text. Notes and sidebars give additional insight into using the iPad without requiring readers to sort through paragraphs of text to find the information they want. Tasks are clearly titled to help readers quickly and easily find things they want to accomplish. Everything—from initial setup and network configuration to using apps such as Mail, Messages, and Maps—is clearly illustrated and easy to follow.

Learn how to use the iPad's two cameras to take pictures and video and share them with friends, and learn how to chat with them live. Chapters 10-16 are dedicated to apps of most interest to seniors, including travel, health, communicating with family, games, and more. These chapters were written by a senior for seniors!
