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!
