I am not calling my iPad a “little thing” because it is kind of pricey, but definitely worth every penny for me. I have had it for two weeks now and I can’t remember what I did without it! Isn’t that sad! But seriously, this is such a fun and useful gadget. I use it for email, checking etsy, twitter, facebook, whatever. BUT the app I love most is Flipboard. I don’t know how to pull screen shots yet from my iPad, so I’m just going to tell you about it. It allows you to customize your page to feed in your favorite sites. Mine include facebook & twitter of course. BUT I also know know the latest on all of my favorite blogs that I’m just usually too lazy to visit. design*sponge, Swiss Miss, HOW Magazine, Print Magazine, etc. But my favorite discovery is Quipsologies that the amazing Under Consideration run. I LOVE the stuff they post on here! They are posting cool new things that no one else! I love it!!!! Allow me to get on a soapbox for a moment - I’m just going to say it. If you are a graphic designer, you just should know who they are. You just should.
I also am addicted to Font Shop’s amazing app! Oh my word it’s just everything. The first night I opened it, I played on it for over two hours. And the only reason I put it down is because it was 2 in the morning and I had to be up for work the next day! AND best of all – the color palette is black, white and YELLOW!!!
Of course I bought Apple’s smart cover they made for the ipad. It’s brilliant. I bought the cream leather cover. I couldn’t resist.
BUT then I bought the cutest iPad cover from Rogue Theory on etsy for $36. It just made me happy
But I think you could probably guess what’s my favorite thing about my iPad. The video so I can record Weezie. I mean, who doesn’t want to watch my cat go crazy on a piece of French paper!
