iPad productivity apps - MagicalPad | No Stylus - iPhone - iPad - iPod

iPad productivity apps - MagicalPad | No Stylus - iPhone - iPad - iPod | Using the Amazing iPad | Scoop.it
Magical pad has to be one of the best productivity apps for iPad.

 

I'm really very impressed with the MagicalPad application it is somewhere in between a note taking application and a mind map. It is totally free-form in that you can throw your ideas into a single page wherever you want. It is a very good way to organise your thoughts and you can export out to the OPML format. You can bring it into a mind mapping application or an outline application such as OmniOutliner. There are future versions planned which will add extra functionality, but it is already a useful iPad productivity application.

iPad office Apps – Keynote for iPad | No Stylus - iPhone - iPad - iPod

iPad office Apps – Keynote for iPad | No Stylus - iPhone - iPad - iPod | Using the Amazing iPad | Scoop.it
And if you are going to create the presentation on your iPad then for my money there is only one choice and that is the excellent Keynote for iPad. There are a whole bunch of Keynote themes or template that you can use to get started with and there are a surprisingly large number of transitions available within the Keynote iPad app.

 

If you are using iCloud then the presentation will be synchronised to iCloud and then pushed down to your other eye devices. It is also a useful feature of iCloud that if you go to the web page for your iCloud account and go to your Keynote page you will have the opportunity of downloading your Keynote presentation. You have a possibility there to download your presentation either as Keynote, PDF or a PowerPoint slide format.

 

This is very handy if you are someplace where you want to show one of your presentations and you don't have either your Mac or your iPad with you. If you are forced to use a Windows computer at least you will be able to show one of your lovely Keynote presentations.

Andy Ihnatko Review: iPad 2 is not revolutionary, but it is great

Get Your iPad 2 here http://amzn.to/rPM0CQ  

 

Full Article link: http://www.suntimes.com/business/4396870-420/review-ipad-2-is-not-revolutionary---but-it-is-great.html 

 

The iPad 2 is a solid, highly-progressive update and it’s only going to disappoint one kind of consumer: someone who was hoping that Apple would somehow completely redefine the greatest new tech product of 2010 in its second incarnation.

Naw. All of the 2011 iPad’s improvements and new features are answers to the question “What would the first iPad have been like if its engineers had been given another year to work on it?” They’d certainly have tried to make it faster and sleeker, and they’d have figured out how to stick a camera or two in there. Done, done, and done.

 

(Their in-house case also wouldn’t have been a chintzy-looking plastic sleeve, either. Done.)

 

The iPad 2 is the same iPad. It’s just better in every conceivable way.

 

After a week with the iPad 2, I’ve come to realize that Apple’s true revolutionary change has been conceptual. The first iPad wasn’t just a new product ... it was a whole new category of computer. I think in 2010, Apple instinctively understood that with something this different on their hands, they couldn’t go for broke. They could only lay out their cards and imply the iPad’s many strengths and then they’d have to stand back and watch what happened. After all of their efforts, they could only hope that consumers and developers figured out what the iPad was on their own. Only then could Apple make their next move, based on those reactions.

 

It all could have gone very badly. If Apple had sold the iPad explicitly as an ebook reader, the first complaint would have been “Why does this cost twice as much as a Kindle?” If they had gone the other way and suggested that the iPad was a substitute for your notebook, then any sensible consumer would have pointed out that while the iPad 1 was far more affordable than the cheapest MacBook, $500-$875 could buy any of a number of powerful, name-brand Windows notebooks.

 

Selling 15,000,000 iPads in nine months must have filled Apple with a certain degree of confidence that the world had truly gotten the point.

 

The public got it: the iPad was no mere accessory to a desktop and while it certainly earned best-in-class honors as a reader, media player, and document-viewer, there was no need to limit one’s perceptions of the device. The iPad was, and is, truly an entire new class of computer. Many of you were around for the transition from text to graphical user interfaces. Some of you were even around when the world shifted from mainframes to personal computers. Well, congratulations: you’ve lived to see your third revolution in computing.

 

The original iPad was the lap that the race cars take around the track just to heat up the tires. The iPad 2 is where Apple starts driving aggressively. Last year, Apple implied that the iPad might be able to replace your notebook. This year, Apple seems to be saying that the iPad 2 could replace ... notebooks.

MiFi, iPhone 4 tethering to give you 3G internet for your iPad. Did you know you can tether using bluetooth. WiFi teethering is faster but there are advantages to using Bluetooth.

I like to use my MiFi to connect up but it will be nice when I buy the iPad 3 on the iPad 3 release date with a 3G connection built in. It will be much more useful and save me having to carry an extra device around.
