A clear, well-written manual for this app phone that covers all important basic functions with good use of illustrations. I recommend it to all.

Author Info
Dan Gookin
Dan Gookin got started with computers back in the post-vacuum-tube age ofcomputing: 1982. His first intention was to buy a computer to replace his aged and constantly breaking typewriter. As a restaurant worker, however, Gookin was unable to afford the full word processor setup, and settled on a computer that had a monitor, keyboard, and little else. Soon his writing career was underway with several submissions to fiction magazines and lots of rejections. The big break came in 1984 when he began writing about computers. Applying his flair for fiction with a self-taught knowledge of computers, Gookin was able to demystify the subject and explain technology in a relaxed and understandable voice. He even dared to add humor, which eventually won him a column in a local computer magazine. Eventually Gookin's talents came to roost as a ghostwriter at a computer book publishing house. That was followed by an editing position at a San Diego computer magazine. During this time, he also regularly participated on a radio talk show about computers. In addition, Gookin kept writing books about computers, some of which became minor bestsellers. His favorite quote is "Computers are a notoriously dull subject, but that doesn't mean I have to write about them that way."
