With more than half of new Mac purchases going to those new to Apple, one app developer has taken the challenge of teaching the novices. Available now in the Mac App Store, Learning the Switch to Mac from "It's About Time Products" is a comprehensive overview of basic (and a few more-advanced) functions on the Mac.
Learning the Switch to Mac offers guided courses in performing many of the simple tasks that escape users coming over to Mac from the PC environment. You can learn how to utilize your Address Book, including printing labels; take advantage of the Dashboard, including how to download more widgets; as well as how to effectively use your Dock, including the Downloads folder.
Other topics include iCal, Keyboard Shortcuts, Spaces, Mail, Safari, Spotlight, System Preferences, and setting up your Network and Time Machine.
Each lesson is lead by a friendly looking dude who gives you several tasks to complete within each function. Completing these tasks will help novice users get the hang of their new Mac. Though the tutorials do not yet cover things like basic troubleshooting, many of the basic usability questions we receive here at MacFixIt are covered.
Learning the Switch to Mac is available for a limited-time launch price of $.99 in the Mac App Store.
