Touch, Read, Sing, and Sync with Two New Missing Manuals

Greetings,

"Apple may not have made huge changes in its hardware for the iPad and iPod line this year, but they really did a lot with the new iOS 5 software," says J.D. Biersdorfer, New York Times tech columnist and veteran Missing Manuals author. "These new Missing Manuals cover all the exciting things that iOS 5 brings to the table, including new apps like Reminders, iMessage, and Newsstand, and new features like the ability to edit photos and post Twitter updates right from the Camera app."

Please email me if you wish to review iPod: The Missing Manual, Tenth Edition or iPad 2: The Missing Manual, Third Edition.
