Have you taken the plunge and got yourself an iPad yet? Are you sitting on the fence, because you’re not sure what the benefits are?
Here’s what I’ve got on my iPad and I’d love to hear what’s on yours…
I upgraded my iPad 1 to the new version and opted for the basic WiFi model.
I don’t store movies or videos and only keep a small selection of my music, as I can access my Sirius satellite radio via their app.
In no particular order, here are my favorite apps, and why:
Flipboard – This widely popular app aggregates social media, magazine and news channels. I love it because the information is displayed in a very user-friendly format, it’s easy to navigate and read a variety of feeds in one shell. Bonus Trick…when I attend a show or event, I can pre-load the event’s Twitter hashtag as a channel to read/follow, so I don’t have to search for it every time! Cost: Free
Keynote – This is the ‘PowerPoint’ for iPad. I can build presentations and promotions quickly and professionally, all using my iPad. It took a couple of hours of playing around to get proficient at it, but now that I am, I couldn’t live without it. Cost: $10
Pages – This is ‘Word’ for iPad. It’s easy to use and gives me total flexibility to create, edit and share Word docs. Cost: $10
