    Hi everyone, I just received my Ipad for fathers day. yeah for me. I'm trying to learn how to do something but I'm not sure what i even need to do it. so i will explain. I am a wedding DJ. I have a sheet of paper we call our wedding information sheet which a bride fills out, which lists all the formalities of there day from beginning to end. I want to be able to .. for a lack of better words scan this sheet in to my Ipad and open it as a template. so i can edit it or move things with in the sheet around as she the bride or he the groom changes things. ...as they all do. heres an easy exp. i line up the bridal party to be introduced into the room. I'm reading the names off the list on my Ipad and the bride says no i changed that couple,,, now Mary is coming in with ed. so I'm thinking i put my finger on Mary's name and drag it to the new spot next to eds name and its done. can someone tell me how i do this and what i need to be able to do this. thanks so much every one.

    My suggestion would be to get the app Pages. they got a bunch of templates there and Im sure you'll find one that suites ur needs the best. The app is $9.99 but well worth it.

    Pages would be the best. To use a data base like FileMaker Pro would be over kill. Another thought would be to use Numbers and make a simple spread sheet

    It occurs to me this may be a job suited for a task manager. Enter the wedding guests/party as separate tasks in the task manager, then move them around as needed. There are a ton of task managers in iTunes App Store, including many free ones. Does anyone know of a task manager that allows simple reordering using gestures?

    GoodReader is the answer, as it so often is. Or at least a good answer, if not always the optimum.

    Go ahead and scan/print/whatever your template so that it is a PDF file. Import it into GoodReader using one of the many methods.

    Once in GoodReader you can open it to annotate. Just tap and hold on the pdf until the annotation menu pops up. When you make the fist annotation it will offer to make a copy (instead of adding to the original), so with care you can use the same file over and over.

    One of the annotation types is text. You can enter the text in several colors, sizes, and with or without boarders. This text can be edited and drug (repeatedly) to any part of the the PDF. When the time comes you can export the PDF back to the computer for printing, or even print straight from the iPad if you've got that set up.

    Other PDF annotation apps will probably work too, but I'm familiar with GoodReader. Besides, it has lots of import/export options and file organization that will probably come in handy.

    If you purchase an app that doesn't work or is unsuitable you can get a refund as a credit to your iTunes account by calling the Apple Support line with the transaction reference number that's on your iTunes invoice for these items.

    I would suggest mind maps apps, there are a few that are free in the app store. From your form, you can create quickly a mind map for the guests, and rearrange by dragging, adding or removing the nodes. Of course, if there are 300 people's, that could be a painful process.

    The way I see it, each node can have it's own color, meaning that your could categorized the guests using a few colors, giving you a visual clue about the relation with the bride and groom.

    If I'm not mistaken, often, a desktop version is available so you can prepare your templates and and files on the desktop, and import them into your iPad when the D day is there.

    Are you planning to use your iPad as your playlist selection for music? That you be quite handy as your new toy could do both.

    My 2 cents

    That was my first though. I like Popplets. It is about as simple as you can get for slapping down notes and dragging them here and there. It was the part about having a scanned template that stumped me.

    I almost always fall back on GoodReader when stumped for the perfect app.

    @Rjd137 - there is a lite version of Popplet if you wanted to play around with that as well.
