iPad Family: Best Children's Educational Apps & Family Friendly iPad Apps Reviewed iPad Family on Twitter iPad Family on Facebook iPad Family on Pinterest


iPad Dad

Welcome to my page! Here you'll find my favourite apps, reviews and insights and a little bit about what I enjoy most about the iPad. In fact, I'll start there: What I love MOST about the iPad is that it's like a digital swiss-army knife (as in it can do SO MUCH and yet is so thin and light and beautiful!)  I've found uses for the iPad I never thought imaginable before I had one... and even after I had one. 

It's the instant availability of the iPad that makes SO many things possible that before would have taken a backpack of single-function devices to achieve the same thing.  (ie: compass, GPS, music player, camera).iPad opens up opportunities that would have been labeled "To Do, Someday!" and allows them happen TODAY.  

For instance; I called up my grandfather (age 98) and had him hold the speaker phone up to his cuckoo clock as it struck 'ten'.  I recorded it on my iPad, eMailed it to myself and then forwarded it on to others in the family. That cuckoo clock has been running non-stop for over 60 years... almost three full generations have heard that cuckoo... and now a few more generations can enjoy it... on their iPad.  All because the ability to record, edit and SHARE happens all in one place, it is now POSSIBLE.  That's what I like - this is the type of thing the iPad makes possible!
