    Having been a long time HATER (or ignoramus, I now realize) of Apple products, I now realize I was just swimming in the dark with my Nokia, Sony Ericsson and iRiver products.

    Having travelled and lived in several countries throughout my life, gadgets have always been by my side. I have no siblings and hence, they have been my crutch, my companions and my prime sources of entertainment and relieving boredom (till last year, when I got married of course! Honey, I love you... in case you're reading this, lol).

    I bought a 3G iPod Touch (8G) 2 years ago - my first Apple purchase since the traditional 20GB click-wheel iPods. I fell in love... LOVE... and soon after the iPhone 4 came out, I had arranged for it to be delivered to me from Singapore - factory unlocked.

    Which brings us to now! Being a proud owner of an iPad 2, i'm striving to discover the numerous amazing features it offers which I could never experience or discover using the iPhone 4. Two apps which have amazed me are Notes Plus and Flipboard! I did quite a bit of research on Notes Plus and its various other competing products, include Note Taker HD and others - and in the end, am happy with my purchase (not to mention it's on sale for 1.99 right now - that sweetened the deal a bit) after having used it for 15 mins or so. Flipboard flat-out impressed me by its visual layout when I first opened it out - it's just too good to be FREE, and is one of my daily 'on-the-pot' apps... figure it out yourself :D

    I'm big into gaming and have been since I got my iPhone 4 - I post regularly on TouchArcade and have downloaded a few iPad games already... still waiting for sales to come around for a lot of apps though, they're EXPENSIVE... but oh well.

    Not sure what else to say other than the fact that i'm glad I have an iPad 2 now, and I look forward to visiting these forums often. If anyone out there has suggestions for ways to track app sales, price drops and so forth for iPad Apps (better than AppShopper or the AppShopper app), do let me know.

    Cheers!

    Welcome from Scotland too. Yes - that deal on Notes Plus is certainly great. I missed it and paid the normal price...:(

    Thanks Tim.

    You can't imagine how hard it was to choose between Notes Plus and other similar apps. After reading reviews online, watching videos on youtube and trying to sift through iStore reviews - I was at a dead-lock between this, Note Taker HD and Noteshelf. The price is what bowled me over at the end :eek: (and probably for the better - I LOVE this app so far!)

    The Notes Plus developer is totally committed to the app too. If you email him - guess what - he actually answers your email and you'll see from his website that he's in constant contact with his customers and takes their suggestions for new features very seriously.

    I have a question - what does it mean when a user posts on these forums "using iPF"? I've seen it on a lot of users' posts yet, when I do an app search for iPF, I only get 3 iPad results:

    iPflanzen
    Edhouse Prototype (ermm)
    iPFaces Client


    What is this?

    iPF is an app to read and post on ipadforums.net, it is essentially an alternative to browsing the forum from a browser.

    iPF is actually short for 'Discussions Forum for iPad Users'

    Nvm. you were too fast :D

    Hello from UK! Yes, you are definitely developing app addiction. Wait until you have 275 apps, and yes I do use all of them!
