So here it is, April 5th, and I have no iPad. That's because I want one with 3G. So my 32GB iPad 3G is on order, but I won't have it for a few more weeks. That really bites.
Wow, this is a perfect fit for iPad, and in all my previous grousing about the new device, I did not think at all about this app, but have to admit that it is right in the iPad wheelhouse! A bigger screen for viewing the cosmos almost makes me want to go out and get an iPad now! Anyway, VITO is pretty happy that Apple Stores are pre-installing a demo version of the app, but you can get the full app here...
Well after having my iPad for a solid day now, and the hype is wearing off, let me tell you, it is definitely not just a big iPod Touch or iPhone.
Where to start?
I just downloaded my first Vook - Sherlock Holmes. A Vook is an electronic, interactive book. As you begin each chapter, you can play the video to learn something more about the characters, setting, and places. Then, as you read the chapter, you can view illustrations and click on web links to access the Internet for word definitions. This all works seamlessly and provides a unique reading experience, one which I believe is the future of all E-books and magazines.
The Color&Draw website says it's an app for kids, but I'm here to tell you that it's for adults, too!
My husband and I were going to have joint custody of the iPad we bought yesterday, but that lasted 13 hours.
After playing with it all day and having "discussions" over who was going to get custody when, we decided to save our marriage and buy a 2nd one!
As I said in an earlier post, I ran out of memory rather quickly with the 16 GB, so I upgraded to the 32 GB. MUCH BETTER! After uploading all my apps, photos, songs, and videos, I still have 19.69 GB left.
I love match 3 games. The problem is that so many developers start with the “tiles in a box” approach and try to figure out how they can improve on it. These days, however, so many match 3 games exist that developers really need to start thinking outside of the box (didn’t see that one coming, did you?) Thankfully, that’s exactly what Dan Russell-Pinson did when he designed Furballs (in space) for the iPhone. The playing field is 360 degrees and constantly moving, and the path drawing technique adds a new perspective to the mechanics. Oh, and did I mention there are things like comets and satellites to contend with?
The iLounge website has posted an iPad case gallery. At a glance you can see all the different options, with links to the vendors. When I get my iPad (I'm intending to get the 3G model), I think I'll opt for a satchel-type case — something I can put over my shoulder.
I can only say, WOW! Although I haven't had a chance to do everything yet, my first impressions with the iPad are AWESOME! And it can only get better.
The user interface is beautiful; the graphics are crisp and COLORFUL! I love the color. My husband has a Kindle and the iBooks reader on this iPad is going to blow Kindle out of the water! Color illustrations, adjustable font sizes and the slickest page turner I've ever seen.
