My most recent book, iPad at Work, is now available on Amazon and the iBookstore. A Kindle version is due any day. Moreover, the book has wide distribution in brick and mortar booksellers, including Barnes and Noble. Indeed, this evening I stopped by a local Barnes and Noble and saw my book on the shelf. It was one of the most rewarding moments of my life.
iPad at Work is 344 pages of the how and (more importantly) why of getting work done on your iPad. The book includes 24 chapters of app recommendations, tutorials, workflows, and advice. I poured my heart into this nerd opus. Here is the chapter list:
- iPad Fundamentals
- Useful Utilities
- Cloud File Storage
- Video Conferencing
- Remote Access
- Task Management
- Calculators and Spreadsheets
- Graphics and Diagrams
- Project Management
- Time and Billing
There is also an appendix with specific app recommendations for education, law, medicine, construction, real estate, and information technology. I put a lot of time and effort into these 110,000 words and I’m very proud of this book. Merlin Mann wrote a very kind (and humbling) foreword.
I applied several lessons from Mac at Work to this new book. iPad at Work makes extensive use of QR codes so you can jump to App Store links and websites with little trouble. I’ve also included my own workflows in this book. If you want to read the book electronically, the iBookstore version includes tapable links to the App Store and websites. (The Kindle reader does not support this feature.)
I did a series of podcast interviews about the book. The first released this weekend on my friend Victor Cajiao’s Typical Mac User podcast.
My sincere thanks goes to everyone for supporting my efforts to write iPad at Work. I hope the book scratches your itch.
