I have turned Photo Stream off. It's automatic saving uses local space without my control. It does not have a means to manage the images, I.e., no image delete. Images are kept for 30 days and then automatically deleted even if I want them there longer. Also, I have found it to be quite flaky - sometimes my Photo Stream on the iPad 2 has images, and sometimes it does not. Much easier to manage a photo directory on Dropbox.

I too am a heavy user of dropbox. I do, however, like that calendars, contacts, and reminders are automatically sync'd between my iPhone & iPad. Also, it allows me to share those items with my wife - we have access to each other's data. Also, I find the automatic syncing of my pages & numbers files between the iPad & iPhone useful. However, I still put a copy on Dropbox so I can get to them on my Mackbook Air - it should have the same sharing capability.

[QUOTE=hinke00;353729Is there a browsing app for iPad? Please somebody help me out of this, because nobody knows anything about the iPad where I live.[/QUOTE]
Regarding the Browser App question, yes, the iPad's inbuilt browser, "Safari", is quite good, and fast.
