    Ipad world

    I just wanted to share my experience about my ipad. I got an ipad for christmas. But until now, i was not doing anything else with it but what i was doing in my computer. That is checking my sites,emails and googling.
    Lately, i ventured to the world of the App store. Amazingly, found lot of educational things FOR FREE. (But still need be aware of those who sneak in for you to purchase.)
    the app i am enjoying with while quilting is the (free ) pandora. Selective favorite musics.
    favorite vocabulary learning is LSATSKY.

    Does anyone else have a favorite they like to share.? I am dilettante to the ipad world.

    I LOVE Pandora! I use it a lot. I also play games on Pogo. Lots of time wasters there. lol Then I browse on Etsy to see what crafty things are going for and Pinterest for recipes and DIY ideas and of course facebook. There are a lot of free apps everywhere!

    (hope I didn't break any rules for naming a few sites)

    I have the Missouri Star Quilt Ap on my iPad. It lets me watch Jenny's videos faster and I love it. I play Words with friends and of course use it for QB. I can take pictures of my sewing with my iPad and easily post them on QB too (something I could not do on my regular computer)

    I have an app for my bank, the local library, games for my grandkids to play. I use Twitter, actually get a lot of news from there. If you have a Kindle there are apps for the iPad and iPhone both. There are free apps for logging food and exercise if you do that.

    One of my favorite apps is "Overdrive". You can check out digital books from your library & download them to your IPad for the lending period. You need a library card to use it. I also take screen shots of recipes & quilts & make albums out of them in the photos section. This way when you want to see them you don't need Internet access like you do with different recipe sites & Pinterest.

    since the pics posted with phones or Ipads show up here on their sides, would it change things if you took the photo sideways so it would show right side up in here? Just wondering. they should fix that some day.

    For pictures to show up on QB the right way, you take the picture with the iPad horizontal not vertical. It puts the picture in your camera roll. You open a new thread, type in your text and click on the tiny paper clip to manage attachments. The little box will come up and you choose from existing, click on the picture from your camera roll, click upload, click submit and voila!

    my favorite thing is to have my Kindle books sent to my Ipad. The screen is so much larger on the Ipad that I prefer reading on it more than on my Ipad. I also like watch Netflix on it when sports is on the TVs in the house.

    Tartan, how did you find the Missouri Star Quilt app? It's not available on my iPad apps.

    Download the "Apps for Free" app. It offers 7 -10 apps for free every day. Also search the app store for quilting apps. Amazing stuff. Check the library for free audio books to listen to while quilting. Anything on your Kindle can be seen on your Ipad with ICloud. Experiment and have fun.

    I watch Sewing With Nancy episodes on PBS and I listen to podcasts of my nephew's online radio show, Life at 12.

    HOW does it broadcast it faster? Are the words and video running at a faster rate?

    ​When I try to watch YouTube videos on my iPad it takes quite a while to load. I don't know why it is faster with the App, it just is. As for finding the App, I will ask my tech person later today.

    I love "One Place". I listen to wonderful teachings while I knit or quilt.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    How did you find the Missouri Star App for the IPad? I searched and came up with no results. By the way, I love my IPad...

    Yes, I understand about the free apps. But my kids said "Really, Mom, most of those things are less than $5 -NOT $50! These apps are what make your iPad so functional!" So, I'm trying to ease up and spend a couple of bucks now and again for cool apps. Just sayin'!

    I gave my IPad to my granddaughter and use my Kindle Fire. It does everything I want. Movies, tv, music, all the apps I want, books, pdf files, and quilt videos. It cost nothing per month as it connects to my home wi fi. I love the new technology. I try to keep up with the basic. Pixel of Ink has free Kindle books every day, Amazon has a paid app once a day for free. Every channel on our cable tv will play on the Kindle with the app from the cable company. Sometimes I stop and think imagine this!

    I'm saving my money for one myself! My dd got one for her graduation from college from her dad (we're divorced) and at work several of my coworkers have them. I could use one of those....but great ideas of the apps! Thanks for the info!
