Conflict of interest disclosure: O’Reilly  provided a free copy of iPhone Missing Manual, 9th Edition  for the purposes of the review.

When i pick up a book, I wonder if it’ll be good, really good, or boring, and since I’m writing a review, I hope it speaks to me in clear, language, not tech speak.  Well, David Pogue, and his staff, have another hit on their hands,  iPhone Missing Manual 9th Edition is at once a resource I use on my iPhone, my iPad, and Mac, it’s versatile as an eBook or in printed editions.  Well written, and very funny, not dry at all.  Get it!

The book is well organized, and taught me many tips, tricks, insights, and I’ve had every version of the iPhone since the beginning, yet, I’m thank goodness  not  too old to learn.   well done.

About This Book from the Publisher…
You don’t get a printed manual when you buy an iPhone. Online, you can find an electronic PDF manual that covers the basics well, but it’s largely free of details, hacks, workarounds, tutorials, humor, and any acknowledgment of the iPhone’s flaws. You can’t easily mark your place, underline, or read it in the bathroom.

The purpose of this book, then, is to serve as the manual that should have accompanied the iPhone. (If you have an original iPhone, iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, or iPhone 4, you really need one of this book’s earlier editions. If you have an iPhone 4s, 5, 5c, 5s, 6, 6 Plus, 6s, or 6s Plus, this book assumes that you’ve installed iOS 9.

iPhone: The Missing Manual is divided into five parts, each containing several chapters:

Part 1: The iPhone as Phone, covers everything related to phone calls: dialing, answering, voice control, voicemail, conference calling, text messaging, iMessages, MMS, the Contacts (address book) program an more.

Part 2: Pix, Flix and Apps, is dedicated to the iPhone’s built-in software, with a special emphasis on its multimedia abilities: playing music, podcasts, movies, TV shows, and photos; capturing photos and videos; using the Maps app; reading ebooks; and so on.

Part 3: The iPhone Online, is a detailed exploration of the iPhone’s third talent: its ability to get you onto the Internet, either over a Wi?Fi hotspot connection or via the cellular network.

Part 4: Connections, describes the world beyond the iPhone itself— like the copy of iTunes on your Mac or PC that can fill up the iPhone with music, videos, and photos; and syncing the calendar, address book, and mail settings.

Part 5: Appendixes, contains two reference chapters. Appendix A walks you through the setup process; Appendix B is a master compendium of troubleshooting, maintenance, and battery information.

Conflict of interest disclosure: TechSmith provided a free copy of Snagit v4  for the purposes of the review.

You know when you have your ways of accomplishing a task, you get set in them, and then along comes a newer, better, easier way of doing it, and you smile…. TechSmith’s new version 4 of Snagit, is that golden egg.

Many of us use basic screen capture, you know, cmd-shift 3 or 4, but it’s only a start to making it really buzz like Snagit can and does like screen recording, making animated gif’s, panoramic screen capture that automatically stitches together…  So you see this is a premium product at a fair price.  I liked the ease of collaborating with others, since I could mark it up, put arrows, on either screen capture or video, and turn it around pronto.  I loved being able to scroll down a website that goes below my screen and capture what i wanted, can’t do that before, just be frustrated without Snagit.  Now we can!

Did I mention the tool bar and how easy it is to drag/drop tools you use the most, how easy it is to save to drop box or other cloud services.  The editing tools are easy to understand and grasp, and TechSmith has training videos for all the processes you’ll use, so you won’t forget a step or be inspired by a new way of doing work flow.  And to ease your sending images to Snagit, you can use Fuse, a free companion product for your iPhone or Android phone to import images you’ve taken on your phone.  Great tool I enjoy using.

I worked with their tech support ( you can too), and learned much.  Like recording a video, and trimming it, using it to send along with comments to someone you are working on a project with.   Get it, you’ll really like it and use it!

You can try out Snagit new version 4 for 15 days free too.  or buy it for $49.95.

Existing users of older Snagit will love the NEW features in V 4:

*new Editor
*new capture window
*new stamps and callouts
*video capture with Webcam
*animated GIF
*panoramic image capture
