Got a new iPad mini? Hoping to see one under the Christmas tree on Tuesday? Then we have some terrific news for you! For the holidays, our AppStart guides for iPhone and iPad are available for free.

AppStart is meant to help you get the most out of your iOS device by not only filtering through the apps that are out there, but by also providing you with step-by-step instructions on how to fully utilize the apps themselves.

Our individual apps consist of scrolling pages packed with tons of content to help non-techies get the most out of their device. Each starts off with the basics, offering up the top 10 apps you absolutely have to download before doing anything else, and then progresses into more advanced topics.

Articles feature tons of screenshots so you know exactly what to look for, detailed instructions, fun tips, and app icons and direct links to mentioned apps so you can easily find and download them from the App Store.

We also designed the app’s interface to be dead simple and as clear as possible to anyone using it, allowing you to go at your own pace and read only what applies to you.

AppStart for iPad (2012 Edition) and AppStart for iPhone are available now in the App Store.
