The book starts off with a wonderful prefatory comment: "Consider this eBook as a good starting point in your own productivity experiment. Try the suggestions I make here and then branch out on your own with new apps and processes. I only hope that this book provides you enough confidence to strike out on your own iPad-guided journey!" Chris' straightforward layman's approach to using the iPad was refreshing. He offers up real world advice and stories as to how he has used certain apps, keyboards, and styli on the iPad to get things done. In the book, he talks about apps such as Evernote and apps that follow David Allen's Getting Things Done's (GTD) 5 stages of productivity. I definitely learned a couple of things here myself such as how to write blog posts on the iPad with either Blogsy or QuickOffice Pro HD. I didn't know about the integration between it and Evernote. "QuickOffice can access your Evernote Notebooks as individual folders. This means that if you store your files in Evernote, you can access and edit them directly from QuickOffice without detaching/re-attaching or "opening-in" from your iPad. This is an amazing bit of integration that could have dramatic consequences on your productivity. I definitely recommend Chris' book as you'll get some really good advice on how to get going on the iPad quickly! Plus, I can't thank him enough for the honorable mentions of my own book Evernote: The unofficial guide to capturing everything and getting things done (2nd Edition) (Kindle Edition) throughout his own!
