Many saw this as a huge step for the long time PC User. I am the one that has said “Don’t rely on fruit, when what you need is a computer.” But I am not to big to say – this iPad thing it is a winner. It also is a great tool for ministry.
I loooked at the new iPad 2 and my budget and decided on a iPad 1 via Craig’s List. I got a good deal and must admit I’m not sure what all the fuss is about the iPad 2, since the Camera is not that great and I would not exactly say that the iPad one is to heavy to carry around.
I must admit I am a gadget guy, I carried a palm device, when they first came out, I went to a pocket PC and even to a Google smart phone. I have a 2nd generation iPod and a iTouch that I use all the time.
So the real question now is… What apps are you running and is it useful or just a toy.
The first app that I put on my new iPad was YapTap from Madgravity.
I have been a YapTap user since the very beginning, and it is a great tool to stay connected with youth or any group.
There is also a version for the iTouch/iPhone called MyYapTap.
The second app installed was one I have enjoyed for years on my iTouch – CalenGoo.
This Google Calendar program is a life saver be tween my iTouch, my Android phone, my Outlook on my desktop, google Calendar on my laptop, and my new iPad.
Google Calendar is a great way to keep it all together.
Dropbox – don’t leave work without it!
After this the apps came fast and furious and I will share more favorites in the days to come.
