Well I went and did it – went out and bought an iPad. In this case an iPad 4 with wifi and 128Gb. (What would I do with cellular?)
So far it seems to work pretty good. I like the ’keyboard’ more than the android tablet. Seems easier to use than those tiny keys on the droid.
Loading the apps isn’t too much different. Loading data into the apps is different. For that you use itunes.
I will keep this space updated.
