The book covers all of the settings that can be applied and explains how to best use the virtual keyboard on the iPad.
iPad for Seniors in easy steps details all of the main functions of the iPad, including working with the built-in apps and navigating around with Multi-Touch Gestures. It also looks at a variety of tasks that can be undertaken on the iPad, from staying organized to keeping in touch and getting the most out of your music, photos, videos and books.
iPad for Seniors in easy steps also looks at areas of interest in which the iPad can be used to make life more fulfilling, such as when traveling, dealing with finances and viewing artwork. The book details the flexibility and power of the iPad and shows why it should always be your constant companion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Choice for Silver Surfers 9 Nov 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Bought this for my Dad who's in his 80s and it fits the bill perfectly. He's been using his iPad for a while, and managed to upgrade it to iOS 7 without my help! However, his generation does like a physical reference manual which is clear without being patronising, and which uses analogies such as 'typewriters' which increase the clarity in a context that can be understood from his experience. As Dad can now look stuff up when stuck rather than wait until I am next visiting or on the telephone he can make quicker progress now. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Over 60's helpline 14 Dec 2013
By barbara
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Very easy to follow and does not take things fro granted. Simple terminology , well presented with clear graphics. Excellent value for money. It has saved me lots of frustration when trying to discover how to use my ipad especially as I from the 'old school' and feel lost without some kind of manual. I would strongly recommend this to anyone who knows almost nothing about iPads and is worried that they may not be able to 'use'one. Still have lots to explore and try out but you can dip into the appropriate section of the book to give self contained explanations of what you want to do and how to do it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 6 April 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought my IOS7 ipad a month before the IOS7 edition of this guide was out, so read an IOS6 version of this guide "for Parents" in the interim. When my "for Seniors" guide arrived, I was disappointed to find that much of it was similar. I had expected basic content to cater for seniors not necessarily being au fait with iphones etc, just a basic computer at the most, and it doesn't.

For instance, it is very easy to highlight text inadvertently and be offered the option of copying it, but actually finding in the book how one might do this intentionally is another matter. There is a similar paucity of useful information in the section on the camera, with no information on:
- how to zoom when taking a picture (spread two fingers as in zooming on the ipad screen for any other application, which then brings up a zoom bar at the bottom -- the zoom is digital only, not optical, so loses resolution, producing a similar effect to cropping unzoomed picture)
- how to review a photo as soon as taken (a thumbnail appears bottom right once photo taken; tap on this to enlarge)

whilst it was inaccurate on selection of camera mode (swipe video/photo/square till setting of choice opposite yellow dot, no tapping needed or effective).

It did make me wonder if I should have bought the rival product instead.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lots of Pictures and Clear Instructions 25 Nov 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My dad recently splashed out and got himself an Ipad Air, so I persuaded him to also get a book that would tell him how to use the thing, hence this purchase!

Have to say I am quite impressed with this book. It has a ton of nice pictures and the instructions are very clear. It doesa a good job of covering all of the basic functions of the Ipad, and gives a good guiding hand to show you how to use it effectively.

I honestly wouldn't recommend anyone buying the kindle version of this though. I can't see how the images and step by step instructions would translate well to that format. But as a paperback book it works great.

Covers IOS7 well. Recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensible to non technobabble readers 12 Dec 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
At last a guide for those, like me who were not brought up from Babes with an i phone grafted to my ear, for which I am eternally grateful, AND accordingly does'nt assume that the reader is already well versed in iphone technology. With many others I can't even understand the wording of the so-called instructions which tend to be in a technobabble alien to me - I speak a number of earth-bound languages so am not exactly illiterate. Well done.
