This is my very first Ipad. I have had android tablets since I bought the original Asus Transformer. I liked most of the android tabs. But they were never real smooth. Always seemed to have little issues. I got the Ipad because everyone says that it simply just "works". I can say it does. No crashing, etc. But what I miss is having widgets and an easy way to switch from app to app that is running in the background. I found dashboard X, but there aren't very many widgets available. And I love having a status window where I can switch from app to app. Are these things something that I simply need to be patient with?
