    I love my iPad! Definately a learning curve for this PC user, but worth it! My favorite app is Overdrive, where with your library card you can check out digital books from your library. I also like being able to screen shot recipes, quilts, etc & file them in my photos. I still go to my daughter for help!

    Congratulations! You can take pictures with it and post them directly to QB using the little paper clip icon if you start a new thread. You can add a picture from your camera roll to an existing thread by using the little tree icon(third from the right in the reply box icons). I have the Missouri Star Quilt Co. Ap and it is great. You can use it for an alarm clock. You can take a picture of what is on your screen and add it to your camera roll by pressing the round side button and the side bottom at the same time. Have fun!

    DH kept saying he didn't need an Ipad, his laptop was fine. I bought him an Ipad. It stayed on his desk for a long time before he started to use it, now he doesn't use his laptop much at all anymore. He said the same thing about a Kindle and now he doesn't go anywhere without his Kindle. In fact he bought another one that can be read in the dark with out a light. I have to drag him out of old fuddy duddy land or he would never get out. LOL.
    Got fabric?

    I'd love one...but doesn't the Ipad replace the kindle?
    My DD got the Ipad mini and is having a great time with it.

    Thanks for the tip on uploading pictures. I tried it a year ago but I think they've changed buttons now so it really works. This sure makes my life easier!

    I bought my Ipad about four months ago and I love it. I use it on a daily basis.

    The iPad is how I do all my QB things, email, photos,maps for trips, and just about everything. There is an app (application) called "iPad tutorials." My nephew found it and installed it on my home screen. I think he Googled it...he programs computers, so he does all this quickly, but think you can find it. If not, go to the store where you purchased the iPad and they'll help.
