Hi..My first post in this forum. We are thinking of a tablet to help my son with Autism - it seems that iPAD has the marjet wrt apps to help kids with Autism eg modelling, visual schedules etc.
I have next to no experience with tablets. It seems that iPAD is alocked down env. with apps and iTune and the reviews seem to point to dislkes to camera quality, no USD etc.
Having said that, the Android market does not seem tooo populated with apps for ASD kids.
Our home set up is Wifi, we have media streaming with WD One World White Book NAS/media server plus WD media adapter plus XBox 360 4GB plus desktop and laptop. We have movies in various formats and music on the NAS. We do not have any Apple products at home ie no iTunes
We have been to the local elec. shops...the iPAD 2 seems more intuiitive to use than say Acer Iconia A500.
So.........can iPAD 2 do
Capture video for modelling of son at school in clarrom ...easy to transfer / edit on PC systems
Capture behavious/ data gathering from school classroom..notes transfer to PC and email out
Receive media stream from WD gear
Stream to TV using home wifi via WD media adapter
Check emails - done using desktop/laptop.
I see on net that iPAD 3 is coming soon..so to speak.
We welcome any comments on iPAD vs others wrt use for ASD and home use.
Not looking at 3G - 16GHB should be fine.
Not sure how lack of USD and HDMI in iPAD goes down either. Must be a lot of happy iPAD users out tehre tho!!! 68% of ther market?
