It's an iPhone app, but runs just fine - though a bit small - on the iPad
Thanks! I didn't know that part so deleted it on my 64GB iPad. I'll reinstall.Originally Posted by Tim SPRACKLEN
The app runs nicely on my iPod Touch 4G although FaceTime is much better between the Apple devices. I now wonder if there is any way an iPad 1 can use FaceTime without the video portion. As much as a camera appeals to me, I'm not quite ready to upgrade.

I downloaded I swifter but everytime I went to use the browser it would pop up with some in app purchase. So I would hit cancel and every single time I typed in a web address it would pop back up...I almost throw my iPad across the room
Browsing internet, read news, videos, social networking, and games
This is actually the main reason why I like the iPad so much as well. It's so much more convenient than carrying a laptop around all the time in addition to the laptop charger as well. And for some reason, I find it a lot more fun surfing the Internet on the iPad than on a laptop too.Originally Posted by sandeep

My iPad is my college companion. I use it to replace notebooks and take handwritten notes digitally instead now. This is super convenient for sharing with a classmate that missed class that day because I don't have to photocopy anything or exchange physical notebooks, I just email them a copy. And the size is perfect. I found a purse that it fits in so I carry it with me everywhere. The mini netbook thing I had tried to use before just couldn't compare.
I also have been finding textbooks to use on my iPad and since I'm a science major, the textbooks are usually very thick and very heavy. Being able to get them on my iPad reduces a great deal of that heartache and back pain (which includes financial pain, they're so expensive to use for just a few months, but e-versions usually cost less).
Additionally, I use the email sync, calendar, todo lists, internet, and facebook the most. I have a few little games on it but I don't want to get too distracted from my school work (facebook does that enough as it is). I also download awesome apps and tinker with them fairly regularly, sometimes stumbling on really useful things, other times I just learn something new and neat.
I imagine that I would use it for movies and music once I start traveling again. Perhaps even put a few more games on it for that. But for now, it's been a pretty awesome investment.

Technology is intended to assist us, make things easier for us to do or even do things for us, that way we can do what we enjoy
I use my iPad for notetaking in meetings. May I ask what notetaking apps you like best. (I will check over on the thread about the "best notetaking apps", just to see if you have posted there, also.
