    Joined today....

    Just joined today, and i have about 2 days with my ipad mini. I love it! Being a huge fan of apple products, and ill confess i wasnt before until the iphone was born, i procrastinated into going to get my mini or retina. Im glad i brought home the mini. I mostly surf and read books or see training videos on it. I have never been able to maximize my apple products in my field (civil engineering) as i used to own an imac in 2009, but i love their stability and experience. My only pain in spending my money on the ipad is that i really cant use it to write notes. I just cant get any good at it. But thats not why i bought it. Im inexperienced with my new toy as i use the Video, iBooks, and Safari applications 98% of the time. Aside from gaming if you all have any cool apps and 'must try' experiences to share its much appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Oh ok. :-). EIT= Engineer In Training
    Its the first step to start logging developing hours to get a Professional License 4 yrs later. Once licensed you get a seal to design and have your own firm to offer services. Im in Texas and its the second time i take it :/ but i was very close the first time and ive put a lot of study time so i should be fine. How long u been in Civil Engineering? Any cool apps for the ipad that u found? I bought Bluebeam Pdf Revu and it really helps in marking up drawings.

    Ah there you go, I'm really old school, I started in Civils back in 1980, six years working for design consultancies then I saw the light and moved across to work for contractors, I've been up to my ears in muck and bullets ever since!

    I don't really use any specialist apps, just the odd one or two but I use all the office apps and PDF apps, etc.
