Looking for help with your tablet?

diverse tabletsTablets are portable, practical and user-friendly, multimedia devices with a wide assortment of features that allow you to accomplish many day to day activities. With a tablet, there is no keyboard and no mouse. Instead, you tap the screen to make choices and enter text. The built-in programs on a tablet are known as apps.
The OS (operating system) is the basic software on your tablet. For the tablets available on the market right now, there are three options:

  • iOS: all iPads from Apple.
  • Android: the Samsung Galaxy Tab and Google Nexus (van Asus), as well as many other brands such as Sony or Acer.
  • Windows: diverse brands. At the moment there are not as many tablets available that run Windows.

The Android OS is available in several different versions. The latest version is 7 (called Nougat). There are still many tablets running an earlier version of Android, such as 6 (called Marshmallow), 5 (called Lollipop), 4.4 (called Kitkat), 4.3, 4.2 or 4.1 (called Jelly Bean) or 4.0 (called Ice Cream Sandwich). Each version has different functions and a different interface. Manufacturers can also implement their own branding (for example Samsung, Sony and Acer) on the tablets they offer. The start screen on a Samsung tablet can look very different from that of a Sony tablet. Usually however, basic functionality and the operations needed to use various apps are for the most part the same. Sending and receiving email, for instance, is done pretty much the same way on all Android tablets.

Visual Steps has published books for the iPad from Apple and the Samsung Galaxy Tab. All of these books will enable you to discover the full potential of your tablet in an easy, step by step manner and at your own pace!
