Document Overview

This document serves to walk Piglet owners through a quick start of using the device in pictorial format.  The perspective of this guide is from the point of view of a user who has just unpackaged the Piglet.  While this guide is from the perspective of Apple iOS on iPad, the concepts are the same for iOS and similar for Android/Mac OSX using HamLog.
