Although iOS devices are designed to “just work,” as Steve Jobs famously once said about his company's products, new users sometimes need a little push to get started. This is where the new e-book Hello iPhone comes in. Available for $0.99 in the iBookstore, Hello iPhone isn’t a boring instruction manual. Rather, it is an adrenaline-fueled learning tool that helps transform novices into pros. It does so by offering 50 easy-to-follow and practical iPhone tips. Best of all, each animated tip is presented in easy to understand, and at times, funny language. The end result makes it a must-have for anyone new to the iOS ecosystem. In this case, the book focuses on the iPhone 5 and iPhone 4S. If there is one drawback to Hello iPhone is that it is only viewable on an iPad. This limitation, which hopefully will be corrected in a future update, is unfortunate given the publication's target audience. Hello iPhone is created by It's About Time, which once offered the Life Web Browser for iPad. The company has also published Hello Mountain Lion Tips, Tricks & Secrets, and Hello iPhoto for iPad & iPhone. Hello iPhone is available now in the App Store. Note: If you are having difficulties click on the Hello iPhone link above, try to use this one or search from the title on your iPad in the App Store.
