Product Description:

You finally did it-you bought the gizmo that everyone's talking about. Maybe you've already figured out how to play music or make phone calls, but then what?

How does the voicemail work? And that keyboard? What about all of those cool apps-which ones do you need, and how do you get them? You need a book like My New iPhone to make everything easy.

This simple, project-oriented book will have you using the best features of your iPhone or iPod Touch in no time. Rather than drag you through some boring manual, My New iPhone focuses on individual, fun projects, like configuring multiple email accounts, transferring your music, and syncing your computer with your iPhone.

Wallace Wang, author of the best-selling My New Mac, will show you, step-by-step, how to:

  • View weather predictions, traffic patterns, flight information, and stocks
  • Take notes, text message your friends, and browse the web
  • Customize your iPhone by rearranging icons and changing its wallpaper and sound effects
  • Find and install the best new applications and games
  • Browse iTunes, listen to music, and watch YouTube videos
  • Use Skype to call your family for free
  • Create your own ringtones and get free podcasts and audiobooks

Sure, your iPhone makes calls, but that's just the tip of the iceberg. Find out what lies below the surface with My New iPhone.

Summary: iPhone Guide
Rating: 5

This is a "must have" for iPhone users. Should have been included with the iPhone. Easy to read and follow.

Summary: My New iPhone ... actually WORKS!
Rating: 5

Okay ... we usually concentrate on graphic design, Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, web design, typography, publishing and the visual communications fields. However, the iPhone is quickly becoming a highly useful tool for graphic designers and publishing professionals, so we took it for a spin.

Each week we receive hundreds of press releases about new iPhone products, books and applications. It's a jungle out there. So, we decided to see how well three of the leading iPhone books stack up.

After a road trip to the Florida Keys and back, testing and learning the iPhone, our unanimous pick was My New iPhone by Wallace Wang.

Wallace goes a long way to helping you discover not only the first questions, but very useful functions and features that are not evident to the new iPhone user. His method of task-based tutorials walk you through the process to a specific solution -- yet all along the way, he weaves in lots of other good, useful training.

Our test user was my wife, who normally is not handy with technology gizmos. (She needs help attaching an image to email!) But with this book, she's become the iPhone guru. (The other day I heard her giving advice and tips to another iPhone beginner!)

The full review and insights from the road trip are in the Design-[...], which you might find useful.

Thanks for reading,

Summary: The perfect gift for those trying to catch up with the technologically driven pack
Rating: 5

Any owner of the iPhone readily recognizes it holds great potential - and great mystery. From understanding how voice mail works to using applications and navigating menus and sub-menus, MY NEW IPHONE packs in details on usage for everything to using Skype to call for free to browsing iTunes, YouTube videos, creating custom ringtones and more. A top pick for iPhone owners and any library catering to them.

Summary: A Well Written Users Manual with Projects
Rating: 3

The iPhone has generated more buzz than any other smart phone. It has a devoted, cult-like following. This book is essentially a replacement for the owner's manual. It gives a number (52) of simple projects to people who wish to expand their repertoire of tricks in iPhone usage. Beyond those projects, it is essentially an owner's manual. The assignments include:

Identify music with your iPhone
Find your favorite NPR stations
Use your iPhone to search Google with voice commands
Convert your money into local currency with your iPhone
Lose weight with your iPhone
Use your iPhone to check your spelling
Run multiple timers on your iPhone
Use your iPhone to sketch your ideas
Use your iphone to get more from your calendar
Use your iPhone to find a restaurant.

If you're a compulsive person and wish to know as much as possible about your new iPhone, but don't like reading user's manuals, this would be a good book for you. If you'd just like to use your new phone and learn "as you go," you may find it somewhat disappointing. It is well written, has a 14 page index, and covers 438 pages. The user manual on the other hand, is more tersely written, has a 9 page index, and covers 213 pages. The basic information covered is very similar between the two. I think the presentation is clearer in this book than in the manual for most. The book does cover the newest version of the iPhone operating system, 3.0
