Includes coverage of iPad 2
Some see the iPad as an entertainment device meant for watching movies, looking at pictures, and playing games. It’s great for idle time on the couch but it has no place on a business person’s desk.
That is flat-out wrong.
Here, author Dave Caolo reveals why the iPad is the business machine you’ve always wanted. First task is to subdue unruly email. You say you’ve got multiple accounts, including Microsoft Exchange and Gmail, in addition to Apple’s own MobileMe? No problem. The iPad handles those and more. Stay on top of appointments with a powerful calendar application that isn’t limited to Apple’s own iCal. Most of us must give occasional slideshow presentations. Caolo shows you how to manage that entire process, from drawing the first slide to connecting to a TV or projector, with your iPad alone. Topics also covered include working with spreadsheet solutions from Apple and others, consider what happened to those missing apps (and discover fantastic alternatives for each), and finally explore the best tips and tricks you can find.
