There is the rather popular saying that goes something like, “If it wasn’t awfully difficult, you did it wrong”, but that is not always true. Experts in different fields can help and guide people to make stuff seem easier than you first perceived. That’s why books and the internet is full of how-to guides and tutorials, explaining even the most complicated tasks in an easy to understand fashion. A step-by-step guide is designed to untangle the mysteries of things which ordinary people might find difficult otherwise. If you want to find a guide on any subject, you will most likely have to scour the web for a considerable amount of time before you find something useful; well, not any more ,if you are an iOS user.
