Hello,

I have an a iPad and like it very much. I also like various apps for iOS. I am even trying to develop one. During the development process I found a page that provided relevant information about app development for iDevices with code snippets. I made good use of the code snippets (If you are interested: http://www.voip-sip-...ation-voip.html). In my opinion it is a good place to start if someone want to develop an own app for iOS.

Buy the iPad 3 now. There's just a slight difference with the specs but you could get it cheaper. Just upgrade the OS.

You can say the exact same thing about any, and I mean ANY, product. The newer one will always be better, but it might not be much better. However, some people still need to break into the market, or upgrade a failing Ipad v1.

As for the relevant discussion on the previous pages....


The thing that I use my iPad the most for is taking to class to look at and take notes, read online textbooks, check my e-mail, and browse the internet. Sure, I could do all of these things on a laptop, but I'd rather not carry around a heavy machine in my backpack. It would take my x3 longer to send an email with my laptop during a class than it would be to use my iPad due to booting up, shutting down, and all of that fun jazz. Funny thing is, I bet all of you guys who are knocking tablets all have smartphones. A smartphone is the exact same thing as a tablet, and a computer can do everything a smartphone can do but better.


I have never seen the pre-iPad tablets, but I bet you that the iPad was a hell of a lot easier to use and user friendly than any of its competitors. The iPad is just what made people actually interested in tablets.

In regards to iPad, there's a "iPad mini" being released this December. Dunno if that's already been covered.

Already out here in the U.S. I spent quite a bit of time with ones in the store over the last few days and decided that I like it better than the full-size iPad. It's unbelievably light, comfortable to hold with one hand, and the screen doesn't seem too small. Needs a retina screen, though clearly they left that out for this initial release to get people to buy the second version.

I just bought me the iPad mini. It is incredibly light, I have to say. The weight is the main reason why I bought it over a Nexus 7 or any other Android tab. Or the Retina iPad, for that matter.
I still can't write any long-term evaluation, since I've only had it for half a day by now, but I will comment on it soon enough.

Double-post, as I want to bump it with my evaluation of the mini.
First things first, that thing is light as a feather! Absolutely everyone has mentioned that it doesn't weigh anything.
I am a bit disappointed in the low ppi of the screen by now, though. My phone, a Galaxy Nexus has a larger amount of pixels in a much smaller screen (163 ppi vs. 316 ppi, 1024x764 vs. 720x1280).
The backside collects boatloads of fingerprints... Mine is that black slate coloured.
I have noticed some lag sometimes, specially when writing.
iOS feels archaic after 2 months of using Android. Some gestures and options and such are much better thought of in stock Android. For example, notification bar has practically no meaning on iOS and I seriously miss the warning light I have on my phone if I have any new notifications. Also, multi-tasking is much more convenient in Android as well as the open apps management. Swipe to erase and swipe down to refresh came only lately and still aren't as widespread as they are on Android. I was like seriously dragging down on screen on some apps, waiting for that refresh before realizing, that there won't be one.
THAT said, iOS is home to some freaking awesome and wonderful games you can't get on Android. For example, Bastion, Rayman Jungle Run and Sword and Sworcery. They are freaking amazing. Oh, The Walking Dead also wasn't available on Android, methinks.
And Keynote is awesome. And iPad apps in general feel quite freaking good.
