Considering an Ipad - some questions
I'm considering either Ipad or a tablet laptop, but the cost of the latter may be too prohibitive. So I have some questions i hope someone can answer for me. Will I be able on an Ipad to:
-Mark up pdf files (underline passages, make little notes in the margins) and then transfer the file to a Windows PC with all the markups preserved?
-Be able to read Word, Excel, PDF documents. Can I edit them or mark them up?
-Use some sort of VNC client to access my Windows computer?
-Access my files stored on dropbox?
Bought it - some more questions
So I bought the Ipad. I've installed the dropbox app and iannotate. I have some questions:
-How exactly do I get pdf files onto the device, and how do I save them after using Iannotate? I'm able to open a file from dropbox, but there seems to be no way to save it afterwards. Ideally I'd like to be able to store the edited pdfs locally and then transfer them off. Can I transfer them to/from via Itunes?
-Does the device shut off automatically after a certain amount of time after turning the screen off?
-How do I get the keyboard to pop up in a particular app (let's say the notes).
-Can I sync the device with my gmail calendar and contacts?
