I may have bitten off more technology than I can chew here. It looks awesome but what do I do now?!
Go to a Starbucks and play with it where everyone can see you.
But doesn't everyone at Starbucks have an iPad?
I got my email set up and Tapatalk but I don't want to use it for just games and such.
Google earth is pretty cool.
I have a Kindle Fire. I read articles on IGN.com, look at Facebook and maybe Twitter but only when I'm on the toilet. Other than that, I don't use it.
that app where you point it at the sky and it shows you constellations.
And you don't use it for less than half the price of an iPad!
I liked your post better before you edited it , Kate
What did you buy it for?
You should probably just start doing that!
Well, I got it through work and I'm sure I'll use it for my calendar, appointments and such. But the clouds didn't part with angelic voices when I took it out of the box so I'm wondering if I'm missing something.
So, dad, how's it going with that new iPad we bought you for your birthday?
They have an app for that.
We use ours for placing orders.
@DarthBoba loves his; he might be good for some suggestions.
If you like to read a lot, download the Kindle app.
Also if you like the eye strain caused by an LCD.
I use it to read PDF's from my medical school lectures.
Start lining up for the next iPad.
I've gotten hooked reading on it (mainly kindle, but iBooks as well), all the Sherlock Holmes books, for example, are available for free.
You can use Handbrake on your computer to convert videos from DVDs to the appropriate format, I'll leave it to you to figure out how to get around the copy protection. I watch BSG when I'm traveling, have to convert my Seinfeld library at some point. Also put videos for the kids on to keep them happy -- was a lifesaver when we flew to NYC last spring.
If you take pictures on your iphone and enable Photostream on both devices, it will synch the iPhone pictures onto your iPad, which makes far better viewing.
And of course there are tons of games.
EDIT: If you're really going to use it for work, get DocsToGo, which lets you open and edit Word, Excel and PPT documents.
Copyrights eventually expire, but don't let the company that owns "Happy Birthday to You" know that.
LucasArts Special Editions of Monkey Island 1 & 2. Now.
Telltale Games' Sam & Max.
Do you like Walking Dead?
If you have even the remotest interest in astronomy, StarWalk (unfortunately separate versions for the iPhone and the iPad) is absolutely awesome.
