I bought my iPad2 the other day. I am wowed by it constantly. I am using it for:

  • fitness
  • an alarm clock
  • reading books
  • social networking
  • taking and editing video
  • weather forcasts
  • stocks
  • syncing and updating my calendar on the go
  • translating
  • so much more

Already, two teachers today mentioned they wanted one as well and then they asked me the question:

“What apps should I get for it?”

So, here’s my initial list:

  • Pages -$9.99 Mac Word Processing
  • Numbers -$9.99 Mac Spreadsheet
  • Keynote -$9.99 Mac PowerPoint
  • iMovie – $4.99 Mac Video Editing

If you own a computer…you must have | the list

In my last post I was talking about things that are great for neat tricks, great time saving devices, excellent linking and syncing software / applications and also good websites.  If I was to get a new computer, I would recommend getting the Microsoft Software and the Adobe Creative Suite put in first, but then I would be tweaking the computer out with the remaining products.  All of them are free and easily available online found at the links below.  Check them out for yourself and install them today:

I hope contributions will allow me to come back here to add more.  Thanks, in advance, for your help.
