I have not read one single direction and, frankly, do not plan to. So far I think I'm ok with using email, Facebook, reading blogs, Googling, and normal basic computer stuff. As of now, the only "apps" I have are Facebook, Words With Friends, The Weather Channel, Textfree, Angry Birds, and Bejeweled Blitz. I believe that makes me a complete Apple loser!! With soooo many apps out there, I am hoping some of you can recommend the best of the best. I love to read magazines and newspapers. I mean, I guess there's an app for everything so tell me the neat ones you have discovered. Now don't laugh, but do people actually blog from their iPads and iPhones?? Seems difficult. Is there a blogger app??? I'm so impatient sometimes, I don't want to research everything and read a bunch of mumbo jumbo...
Also, as a former Executive Assistant, I personally can type waaaaaay faster on a traditional computer keyboard, and I don't think I want one of those funky keyboards that you can get for the iPad.
Oh, and here's a funny one. Even though I did know about Angry Birds being all the rage with the kids, etc..., I never actually played it. So, one night when I was bored I downloaded the app and played it. Not very successfully. Several days later my kids saw me playing it and laughed as they showed me how you click on the birds to make them separate, etc... I had noooo clue! The only button I read on the screen is the word "PLAY"...again, I didn't read directions. You would laugh if you knew how many tries it took me to get past level III-1 or whatever that was! I'm pretty sure I have a three year old cousin who could easily beat me!!
So, even though iAm extremely grateful for my nice gift, iRealize iMay not deserve it! Oh, did I mention I got a pretty case for it?? (While I'm waiting to use my iPad to its' fullest potential, at least it will look cute.) I will take any help or advice you can give this girl!!
