Ever since the iPad was first announced I’ve wanted one, I can clearly remember having a conversation with a friend just after the first press conference. Two years have passed and I’ve seen more and more people using them in more and more ways and I’m still turning a distinct shade of green.
I’ve been thinking about them a lot in recent weeks (I do have a tendency to obsess a little over gadgets), I have attended two sessions run by Bev Humphrey and been wowed by some of the things that she’s demonstrated as part of these sessions. I’ve sat next to people at conferences and been impressed with how they’ve been using their iPads. They’re not cheap though so I definitely can’t justify buying one at the moment but I have a zero birthday coming at the end of the year so there are possibilities in the not too distant future. The question that I’m trying to answer at the moment though is whether I really want one for the right reasons and will use it lots, or whether actually I’m coveting one because I’m a bit of a gadget magpie. I have had my iPhone for 18 months now and I adore it and use it lots, so I think I can see ways that an iPad would be a useful addition to my life.
So I’m turning this over to you, I know lots of you have iPads and I’d love to know what you think of yours – How are you using it? What apps can’t you live without? Has the shine worn off after a while or do you still use it as much as always?
