    Hello forum!

    I just registered on this forum to learn more about the iPad concept. I am a systems engineer living in the Netherlands. I'm a Mac user (2 macbooks and a Mac Pro) and I am exploring possibilities to use the iPad for my work. I'll post my first questions in the "iPad at work" sub forum.

    Hi Peter,

    Welcome to the forums. I've just been reading your interesting discussion about requirements for a paperless office.

    I'm not a tech wizard by any means, more of an enthusiast who is not afraid of IT and gadgets :)

    You were looking for apps to combine pictures text and hand written or drawn elements. I haven't found anything which performs all 3 on an iPad. I have used whiteboards etc at work for presentations. Anyway, you may wish to check out certain programmes in the store....
    . Pages is a good word processor and you can I sent and overlap images, screen shots and shapes from the inbuilt library.
    . A+signature is good for adding text, shapes and hand drawn lines, wording etc to images. You can tinker with a free version of the programme. On a try before you buy basis.

    HTH

    Hi Richard,
    Thanks for your welcome and I'll check out the apps you mentioned. I've heard good things about notesplus. I'll go and check that out too. Finally, some say the next gen iPad might come as a stylused version. So maybe I should at least wait until it is announced in march.

    cheers,

    Peter

    Hi Peter,

    The new generation of iPad will need some special features to help keep the brand ahead of the game. Other manufacturers' tablets are becoming more competitive and one, in particular, has some interesting accessories.

    I'll be interested in seeing how you get on with notesplus.

    Cheers

    Richard
