    Great book if you're new to iPad

    We're new to iPads and their operating systems. Being familiar with an Apple desk top computer was no help when we bought our iPad Air. This is the book to get if you're new to the iPads and their operating systems. It clearly explains (and shows) everything we've needed to know so far and has the most up to date information. Other books we purchased claimed to have all the latest IOS7 information but didn't even cover "Facetime" which tells me they aren't really up to date. This book is up to date and covers all the latest information to enjoy your iPad.
