    Great Mix of Beginner and Techie Content

    As an iPhone user since summer of last year and a current user of a 3G phone, this book presents a great resource for someone who is just starting with an iPhone to someone fairly savvy. The content that covers the general usage of the phone is a lot better than any documentation that comes with the phone and there is a lot of information that you pick up along the way.<BR/><BR/>At first, I thought some of the earlier chapters were a little basic. As I was reading, I was surprised at the number of things that I picked up which now seem painfully obvious that I never knew before. Things like unlocking the phone faster or better using the iPhone stereo headset. After those chapters was a lot of meaty content.<BR/><BR/>There are a couple chapters on better email handling and browsing on the phone. For email handling, there's a good overview of how to setup mail on the iPhone and through iTunes as well. In Safari, I learned a few things for moving around and managing pages.<BR/><BR/>The next section is about prepping media for use on the iPhone and about the iPod functionality. There is also a section for hacking the iPhone. While this is a section that requires keeping current outside of the book, it is a good base of knowledge to know what to look for.<BR/><BR/>My usage of photos and the camera had been pretty limited before reading the book. Two things I took out of this section was the idea to use the iPhone more as a slideshow player than a camera (since I generally don't like the phone's camera) and to use Flickr to upload the pictures that I do take. The end of that chapter includes a dozen of oddball uses of the camera and some of them are really oddballs.<BR/><BR/>The book itself has an attractive layout and is easy to go through. There is a good mix of content and call-out tips which provide plenty of information for getting the most out of the iPhone. This book covers both Windows and Mac. <BR/><BR/>All in all, it's a very practical book that gives plenty of overview and great nuggets that will enhance your experience on the iPhone.
