iPad Musings - part 2

A few weeks back I mentioned how pleased I was with the iPad and I’m happy to say the sentiment remains the same.  They are very versatile and for those who haven’t had a good look at one, or not had a chance to look at the kinds of “apps” (programs or software) you can purchase or download free, I’m going to give you just a sniff of the kinds of stuff that is available that I’m using.

Flipboard – turns twitter, Facebook, news websites and a range of other online media (which you select) into a magazine style format for simple and beautiful browsing with your finger.  The only place I go for news now.

Evernote – type notes, sync with your PC, phone and the web, email notes and web pages direct to Evernote.  Sounds simple but its very powerful and the app I use most.

Air video – stream all of your videos stored on your PC to your iPad via WIFI in your home.  Combined with the HDMI connector plug it into your TV and you have full access to your video library on your PC.  Support video formats like DivX/xVid which the iPad player doesn’t.

FlyToMap GPS HD – a GPS mapping/tracking program which uses Google maps as well as downloadable terrain and marine maps.  I’m using it to record GPS markers when fishing offshore then using the waypoint feature to find my way back there again.

Discover & Music Hunter – two apps that help you find music you might like based on other music.  Very clever and intuitive, you can get lost for hours finding new music.

So much more to come!
