22 useful iPad tips; Plus, an update on iPad Wi-Fi problems

image

TidBITS has a great article titled "22 Useful iPad Tips." It points out, for example, that although the iPad ships with four app icons in the dock, there's actually space there for two more. And it notes that while you might have a tendency to make large swipes, such as when scrolling through photos, you can actually just make a small swipe of half an inch.



iBook

This is what the iBook app looks like! See how the page curls as you turn it. You can even read the back side as it rolls over. How cool is that?

I'm going to examine this app more closely in the next week and give you a report. 

 



Pacific Defense

I saw a video of this game being played on the iPad the other day and I wanted to try it out. For $1.99, I bought it for my iPad.  I have only played it a few times but I did want to share this information with you.



My Initial iPad To Do's & Thoughts

My iPad survived it’s three day journey from China and arrived safety last week. I have had it for about five days now. My wife has actually logged more time on it than I have. But from my use so far, I can honestly say I love this device for the purposes I bought it for. As I said before, I have a clunky old desktop that I use for data backup/syncing purposes only. My employer provided me a laptop for work, but that is exactly what that is for, work. But I can check my work email from the iPad, which will come in handy when I am on vacation. I love the screen and the responsiveness of this device. I also like the portability. And It’s plain fun to use. It does my eyes justice!  I know it’s not a full laptop but I very am satisfied on what I will be using this for.



Kim Komando's video review of the iPad

Kim Komando, whose radio and TV broadcasts about computers are heard and seen nationally, has put together a video review of the iPad in two 5-minute segments.



1st Week with the iPad

image
I’ve had my iPad for one week now, so here’s what I spent my time doing:
  1. When I was home or had access to the Internet, I checked my email, sent text messages with Ping!, updated my Facebook page (love using Fun Box to add graphics) and kept track of my Weightwatcher points.
     
  2. Surprisingly, I didn’t read one book. Just didn’t have time!


Notes to Store v. Pages

When comparing Notes to Store with Pages on the iPad, Notes to Store is a viable alternative for some users.



Color & Draw for the iPad

Tipitap Apps just released their Color & Draw app for the iPad. Now, there is lots more room to work. Even I managed to color a page!

 

App Features:

 



Amazing App Solar Walk allows you to explore the planets in detail!

 Just when I start to get bored with my iPod touch, a new app comes along that makes it like new again. The app in this case is Solar Walk from VITO. I have reviewed the amazing Star Walk previously here (a celestial viewing app), but was wondering when they would get round to adding 3-D planet exploration to the mix. There's a great (and free) PC app out there that does this called Celestia, and Google Earth also has some pretty awesome planet/star-gazing features.



Paints vs Adobe Ideas

I’m reviewing two apps for the iPod here because they are so close in terms of what they do they make for a good side by side comparison.
