©I Am In Love© with my iPad©.
I have pondered over in my head which I tool I need more, my Smartphone, my 19” laptop, 3 in 1 copier fax scanner or my iPad? I am now convinced the answer is my iPad.
I recently was on vacation and I was able to go on line and pull up documents from my paperless file RELAY, forward documents to others, signed a form I had forgotten to sign earlier, take notes, take pictures, keep my calendar updated and send emails when necessary.
The most important thing though, I had left my 3 puppies in the kennel and they post pictures of the dogs and cats daily so what fun it was to see my dogs on their beds, playing outside and looking fit and healthy.
It was such a joy every day to find the pictures and save them to look at later. It is so much easier to have a vacation when you can relax knowing your pets are well taken care of. While riding in the car, I could go on line and see them.
Also I used the Google Map app to guide us in unfamiliar areas especially when the car navigation was wrong. We traveled through 3 states back east and I was such a great navigator along with my iPad.
My last vacation this May, I had taken my 19” laptop as it was necessary to work while gone but what a hassle carrying it in a roller case and locking it in the hotel safes wherever we stayed. This time, the iPad went in my big Coach tote and was always at my side.
Also, at night while everyone was sleeping, I could watch my soap opera and other shows I had missed that week. Everyone wondered why I didn’t get enough sleep but I didn’t want to tell them I was up watching TV and playing Solitaire half the night. I am a big Solitaire nut and did this while I was bored on the airplane too as I was too cheap to pay the wifi fees on the plane.
I also like to cook and sometimes I find recipes on line and enlarge them on my iPad and put it in the kitchen so I do not have to print it off and waste paper and ink.
I had not used my iPad much before the trip and now I carry it with me everywhere. It is more compact than my 19” laptop and I recently bought a new case that has a slanted keyboard. Happy Day!
Since I have been back, I signed up for the docusign for my iPad so I can get documents signed while at my client’s home. Way Cool!
I read a statement recently that said “There is no best tool except the one you actually use”. I also use my Smartphone but everything is so much smaller to read and the wifi system is different so I prefer the iPad. I am hoping eventually I will be able to talk on the phone from it….perhaps this is in the Apple future and make Quicken software so I can balance my checkbook on vacation too?
There are so many other uses for my iPad that I have not even discovered but like I said before:
