The Rough Guide to the iPhone (5th Edition) – Book Review

Screen Shot 2014-11-27 at 12.57.17 PMiPhone is one of the most intuitive electronic gadgets ever created. The simple multitouch interface was revolutionary when it first appeared, and to this day it has been imitated countless times in various other electronic interfaces. iPhone also boasts an extremely straightforward graphical user interface (GUI), and most users are able to instantly start using it without having to invest almost any time in learning all of its features. This GUI has remained largely unchanged over four generations that the iPhone has gone through. This is quite remarkable considering that the power and functionality of iPhone havre increased tremendously over the years. Apple is so confident in the basic ease of use of iPhone that it doesn’t bother including any user guides with it. Nonetheless, it is useful to have an accessible and relatively comprehensive guide that will help users make the most out of their iPhone.

“The Rough Guide to the iPhone” is exactly the kind of guide that most users would enjoy having. It’s small, accessible and to the point in its descriptions. It will help you discover the features of the iPhone that you never knew existed, or make the most of the features that you were already familiar with. It will also help you with better integrating your iPhone with the rest of your digital life – be it though downloading music, sharing pictures with external sites, or downloading many of the wonderful apps that make iPhone such a versatile tool. The book is also quite amusing, and I especially appreciated the last chapter on “the iPhone weirdness.” This is a perfect small guide for what is arguably the best electronic product in the World.
