A quick note about what I’ve been up to lately…

I promised I’d tell you a bit more about what I’m working on – it’s a book about Smartphones.

Actually, it’s more than one book – separate versions for the iPhone and smartphones based on Android.

We’re always being asked if we do something on phones, so I finally got down to it. It’s been hard work, especially making sure I covered how it worked on the different types (they’re not all quite the same!), but I’m nearly there.

I find my phone really useful, now I know how to use it – things I hadn’t even thought of that I use it for now.

Anyway, there’s lots to say about the books – what they cover, who they’re suitable for and so on. But for now, I just wanted to say that full information will be available next week – on Monday at 11am.

That’s when it’ll be possible to order a copy, too.

So if you have a smartphone (or are thinking of getting one) watch this space for an email at 11am on Monday with a link to the full information…


The books cover how to use the phone, so it’s less frustrating – but also other ways you can use it that you might not know about. But full info on that on Monday.

    Hello all,
    Just to let you know I shall be interested in th forthcoming iPhone book. I am at present in Australia visiting my Son and Daughter, plus grandchildren of course. I return on 22nd November. Communication via phone across the seas can be expensive, we use Whatsapp, which is free or Facebook.
    Regards ,

      Good to know you’re interested!
      Hope you’re having a great time in Australia – it should be a bit warmer than we’re having here!

    Looking forward to your new book on Smart phones. It has been trial and error, and a few phone calls to my
    daughter for help. At one point I spent £18 from my credit and had not made one phone call or sent a text.
    Have you information on WhatsApp in the new book?

      Ouch – £18 without making a call or sending a text! It’s easy to do, though and you’re certainly not the only one who’s done something like that!
      Yes, it covers WhatsApp, along with a few other ways you can stay in touch (which one you want to use will depend on what your friends and family tend to use!)

      The un-helpful answer is “it depends” – for most of them, technically they aren’t. The older ones with keyboards are something slightly different.
      Having said that Blackberry have fairly recently brought out a new range that are technically smartphones, but at the moment hardly anyone has them.
      So the slightly more helpful answer is probably not, unless you have a new one.
      In practice they work in a very different way anyway, so the smartphones books about iPhones and Android phones are unlikley to be much help.

    Are the books published as e-books, rather than having to get a physical copy?
