The Nexus 7 is my first tablet and I wanted to learn how to use a number of (to me) essential functions:
(i) Basic concepts - how the thing works, how to use apps, how to use it as a communicator, how to use it as a personal organiser, how to surf etc. It does all that stuff quite well. Generally I was happy with the book so far.
Concerning my other main functionality requirements, these revolve around integrating my Nexus with my PC. Now although the writer says (pg. 3) "I assume you have a computer (i.e. to use in conjunction with your Nexus 7)" he fails to make any constructive use of that in the next 270 pages.
(ii) How to use it to play my music. This section is dreadful. It actually says (pg. 143) "Can I copy music from my PC to the Nexus 7?" .... "I suggest that you not even try.". That is potentially disastrous for me. Only by googling did I find that that answer is "yes, it is easy, you can upload your itunes library, and the programme you use is called Google Music Manager." This service was launched in the USA in Nov. 2011 and the UK in Nov 2012. Now this book has a copyright date of 2013 - wouldn't you expect it to be up to date?
(iii) How to use it to view and to edit documents, particularly those that come as email attachments - not one single word on this in the entire book.
(iv) How to integrate and to synch to Microsoft Outlook contacts and calendar. Not a single word about this either.
Generally a poorly thought-through book that rests on the laurels of the well-proven 'Dummies' brand in terms of language and design. I want my money back!
