If you follow me on Facebook, you've probably already heard the news, but I can't contain my excitement over this weekend's purchase...an iPad, eeek! Matt and I have been thinking about getting one, but I didn't quite see the point or need for either of us at the time. (Ok, let me reframe that...an iPad is never a need; it's a luxury. I work hard not to use "need" and "want" interchangeably; it gets me trouble.) Anyway, after some discussions and some star aligning (a successful garage sale + an early graduation gift from Matt), this little dude was mine. I'm pretty excited about it, particularly given my legit Chicago commute next year. I'm really pushing myself to learn how to really use it, rather than just poke around on a few apps. So I need some help from all you iPad users...what are you favorite apps, tips, and tricks for the iPad? So far, my favorite apps include Pulse, FeeddlerRSS, Instagram (duh), the Kindle app (which allows Matt and I to share books), iJewels, Lose It, and the AT&T U-verse app (which lets me tap into most of our cable plan from almost anywhere).
Also, for those that are curious about our garage sale, I am finishing up internship this week and moving back to Chicago. Which means I had a ton of stuff to sell. So rather than take the simple route and donate it all, I put in a bit of extra work and had a garage sale. And I covered 3/4 of my iPad purchase with the profits. Not bad, right? Proof that a little junk can go a long way!
Ok, so spill your iPad secrets and then go plan a garage sale :)
