While strolling through the book and magazine section of our local Target store yesterday, a magazine sporting an iPhone on the cover caught my attention. My initial thought was "Okay, someone else jumping on the bandwagon." This looked a bit different from the usual 'best of" mags, so I took a closer look. Glad I did. It has apparently been out for a couple of months, but it still has a bunch of valuable information. 

Most of it is top 10 games, travel, productivity, yadda-yadda apps for Android, iPhone, iPad, with 3 pages for Windows Phone 7 and Top 10 Blackberry apps, but there is a very nice iPad 101 section written by Kristi Ross. It covers basic setup points for new users, and is one of the best I've seen. She also has a section on iPad tips & tricks and it appears it will be an ongoing column in future issues. 

If you are new to iPads or are contemplating one (or an iPhone, for that matter), keep your eyes open for the Beckett Guide to Phone Apps. At $9.99 it's not cheap, but nothing is these days. 

Since Easter will be here in a few days, I couldn't resist another visit from the MacGroup 5, hoppin' your way.
