I bought my iPad just over six months ago. After the initial excitement of exploring it's capabilities I decided to explore the apps market. Many magazines published details of apps, some just a few, and others over a thousand.
At £8+ for each magazine it was an expensive and somewhat disappointing exercise. Only a small proportion of the apps were useful, and I then discovered there were said to be 75 thousand available on the market.
Luckily, I came across The Rough Guide to the Best IPhone & IPad Apps by Peter Buckley. For only half the price of many magazines it contains details of 500 quality apps organised into groups, instructions on how to organise and manage apps on the iPad, an excellent contents page and a well organised index. All the apps turned out to be pretty good too. Had I known about this guide it would have saved me a lot of time and money. Definitely worth a look .

We bought this book along with one explaining the wonders of our sparkly new iPad. I suppose it's quite useful for seeing what kind of stuff is available in the App Store but many of the apps recommended are no longer around. Not really worth buying as it's actually easier just to peruse the app store directly.

I am avid reader, I like books. When I feel an author put little effort into the book, I hate it. I could write a book like this in a few hours. very little effort from the author, just like coping from apps description from apps store. you would be better off go to app store and look for apps yourself. you get next to nothing from this book. this book does not come from author's experience of using the apps he recommends, just copying from the descriptions of apps that he probably got it from apps store - do not buy this book
