iLounge Unveils New iPad Buyers’ Guide, Incredible Sequel In Multi-Million Series
IRVINE, Calif., May 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Leading independent Apple authority iLounge today released The New iPad Buyers’ Guide, the eighteenth book in its multi-million-downloaded series of iPad, iPhone, and iPod publications. Impressively designed from cover to cover, The New iPad Buyers’ Guide delivers a smart, comprehensive look at the growing world of iPad tablets, accessories, and apps, featuring products from nearly 200 companies. There’s something for everyone inside: shopping tips, beautiful photography, interviews with top developers, and even insights on the next generation of Apple devices.
“Our New iPad Buyers’ Guide arrives at an ideal time,” said Jeremy Horwitz, iLounge’s editor-in-chief. “Over 50 million iPads were purchased in the last year alone, and every month, millions more are being sold to people who need objective, honest help with everything from initially choosing an iPad to finding great add-ons and software. This Guide is a turnkey solution — one easy download with all the ‘what should I buy and why?’ answers people want, assembled by experts who have actually tested thousands of new Apple products.”
Weighing in at 156 pages, The New iPad Buyers’ Guide is iLounge’s biggest and best iPad-focused publication yet. In addition to helping users though every step of purchasing one of the 24 different iPad models available today, the Guide includes a massive collection of top iPad accessories, a look at today’s most essential 100 iPad apps, and a special section on the just-released third-generation Apple TV. Feature articles include insightful interviews with leading Apple developers, brief looks at new iPhone, iPod, and Mac gear, and discussion of upcoming Apple products: the “iTV,” next-generation iPhone, and the potential for a revolutionary new digital camera.
iLounge’s Guides are the world’s best-read publications devoted to Apple’s products, developed by the leading independent resource for iPod, iPhone, and iPad users. Readers have already downloaded 1.9 million copies of last year’s iPad 2 Buyers’ Guide alone, in addition to over 1.6 million copies of the 2012 iPhone + iPod Buyers’ Guide, which was released in November. All of iLounge’s publications are available from iLounge.com/library for free, and are published as a service to the Apple community without any editorial involvement from Apple or advertisers.
“The New iPad Buyers’ Guide is gorgeous, and designed to be read on any screen you prefer,” explained Dennis Lloyd, publisher of iLounge. “We continue to distribute it in the popular PDF format, which works with PCs, Macs, and all iOS devices, and create formats optimized for large and small displays. It looks particularly stunning with iBooks on Apple’s latest Retina Displays, including the latest iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch.”
