I hope you all had a lovely weekend (and that it wasn’t as rainy in your neck of the woods as it has been here!) Travis came home after work on Friday with the best surprise ever: two new iPad 2’s, courtesy of his super-awesome boss!
Needless to say, I have been GLUED to my new toy all weekend, and I thought I’d compile a list of must-haves for you other iPad owners (or for those of you who are considering one). I’d also love any tips from those of you who are more familiar…
Here are the items at the top of my list:
-An awesome case. I have the cover from Apple, but it doesn’t protect the entire device (just the screen), so I’m definitely going to invest in a case that I can store my iPad in when I’m carrying it around town. I love the one above from Joe V Leather!
-A screen protector. These are great for keeping your screen scratch and smudge free. (Get ‘em here.)
-Flipbook. Travis’ boss turned us onto this app, and I can’t imagine reading blogs without it! You can load all of your favorite sites into one place and flip through them like your very own, customized online magazine!
-Instagram. This fun app allows you to upload, edit, and share photos with friends and strangers alike. It’s a super fun way to document your adventures (even the little ones).
-iBooks. This app comes on the device, but is totally worth using! I downloaded Tina Fey’s “Bossypants” right away, and I’ve been reading it all weekend. (I really recommend it, by the way— hilarious!)
What’s your favorite techy gadget? Do you own an iPad? Got any good recommendations for apps or accessories? Tried any of the ones I mentioned above? Tell me about it in the comments!
