Take Control of Apple Mail and Pages

Two new Ebooks reveal what you need to know

Take Control Ebook publishers TidBITS are finishing off the year with two books that belong on the virtual reference shelf of any Mac or iOS user: Take Control of Apple Mail, Second Edition and Take Control of Pages, available at 30% off for AMUG members.

Take Control of Apple Mail, Second EditionApple Mail. It’s hard to get by on a Mac or iOS device without it. But living with Mail can be a recipe for hair-pulling frustration, whether because of connection failures caused by Mail’s mysteriously unreliable automatic settings detection or trying to figure out the difference between long and short swipes in the iOS version. No one knows more about Mail than Joe Kissell, and he has distilled his most important advice into the second edition of Take Control of Apple Mail, now completely revised and updated to explain Mail in 10.10 Yosemite and iOS 8.

Author: Joe Kisssell | 183 pages | Version 2.0 | 2.5MB | US$15 | Published Dec 17, 2014

Take Control of PagesApple’s Pages word processor built a loyal following because it wasn’t Microsoft Word, but Apple threw us a curveball with the release of Pages 5 for the Mac and Pages 2 for iOS, removing numerous features and shuffling the interface around. Michael Cohen has spent the last year spelunking through the depths of Pages on the Mac, in iOS, and in iCloud to ferret out what has changed, how to accomplish both everyday and complex word processing and layout tasks, and the best ways to work back and forth in all three versions of Pages via iCloud Drive in Yosemite and iOS 8. Take Control of Pages comprehensively documents what Apple users want to do with word processing and page layout.
