I was just reflecting on a few apps that I recently installed. When I first got my iPad, we had a tornado nearby shortly after. While parked in a underground garage, I amazed people by keeping an eye on the weather with my iPad. While it gave me a lot of information, I could not watch the weather radar because of Flash.
Now I have iPad apps from all the major area TV stations. Even those I cannot get with my antenna. And because of the popularity of the iPad, now I can get news and weather anywhere. While the iPhone has beeen around much longer, and never supported Flash. It was the iPad that turned the tide for many organizations and media outlets. Even though the iPhone is more useful as a portable device, and many more have been sold, it was the iPad that made the difference.
So, in some small way, I can say that the iPad has made my family's life a little safer. In what ways has the iPad made your lives better?
