Like many people, Judy Dixon believes that the iPhone is a magical device — she can't believe the profound effect the little slab of glass has had on the ways she does things. In this book, Judy explores apps that are practical, and many that are just plain fun! She covers a wide variety of activities, from tuning a guitar to counting your steps, depositing checks to measuring an angle, from writing in braille on your iPhone to finding a screw you dropped in the grass! These apps are selected for their accessibility and ease of use.
