Provides information on the features and functions of the iPad and offers instructions on a variety of projects, including wireless syncing, mail management, vacation planning, and converting video.

Bridging the gap between the palm-sized iPod touch and a full-sized computer, Apple's iPad offers enough screen area and horsepower to perform the day-to-day tasks most people want to do. Packed with practical knowledge, this book will walk readers through how to manage their most common projects, from the simple (setting up a calendar event) to the complex (planning a vacation) and everything in between. Readers will learn to use the iPad tools and applications by using them to create practical real-world projects and to master everyday tasks.

In this practical hands-on guide, you’ll learn how to
  • Organize a party: Set up the calendar event, create invitations, invite attendees, and mail out the invites.
  • Build a recipe scrapbook: Write up recipes in Pages (or find recipes via one of the useful recipe apps) and import pictures of the finished dish to go with the recipe in the book. Even learn iPad kitchen tips!
  • Plan a vacation: Buy tickets, find destination activities, and map out directions.
  • Watch videos: Stream videos with Air Video, convert high-quality movies from DVDs, and buy or rent videos from the iTunes Store.
  • Get smart: Learn another language with one of the many translation apps available, and build an illustrated deck of flash cards with common words and phrases.
Plus many more useful projects—both big and small— to help you do stuff with your iPad.
