ipad but Tracy and I are celebrating our 28th anniversary and were feeling a little mischievous the other day. We went to the apple store for something else and ended up playing around with the ipads...which, btw, we both convinced ourselves that we didn't need or want. I started goofing around with the photo apps and it was all over for me. I wanted one. Meanwhile, Tracy was looking at some comic book apps among other things and getting that same twinkle in his eye that I had. We decided we would buy each other one for our anniversary (and just stay home and eat soup this year). We have been having fun with them ever since. SO...if you happen to have one, I thought I'd review a few cool apps. The top photo is my journal page...unaltered (for reference). #2 is photogene (highly recommended). #3 is Touch FX (highly recommended). #4 is Typedrawing (something I absolutely will use). #5 is TiltshiftGen (would look better on photos). #6 is Filterstorm (not so crazy about...not as intuitive).
Anyway...do you NEED an ipad. NO. Especially if you know photoshop and all those other great computer programs. For me, they always mystify me and leave me feeling more stupid than I did before. These apps are fun and super user friendly. btw...we bought the cheaper wi-fi version. I won't be using it while I am out and about, so no need for 3g. something to think about since you would have to sign up for 3g service (an extra expense).
By the way...I've been digging MyNetDiary for keeping track of weight, diet and exercise and I use Numbers for keeping track of my budget (which was being done on paper before). That's it. I'm not into games or watching tv or movies on it. But it will be well used.
