iPad - Why It's Great

The iPad, first of all, has a touch screen. It can register swipes, taps, and has the ability to sense when two fingers are on the screen at once. It also has internet connection, although no Flash player. It can play YouTube videos (see photo). The iPad can record sound. And, using SD cards, it can store photos.

There are applications (apps) that allow you to edit photos. You can do email, and paste photos on email too! The iPad has games also. It has many simulations--there's one about pottery, for instance, and one where you can design a music box. It has apps for TV channels, like the Weather Channel, the ABC channel, and many others. It has maps, and also has this cool app called Google Earth (see video) which allows you to type in an address, and you can see it from above.

The App Store, though, is what makes it all possible. You can buy stuff online, and it automatically takes the money from your account. You can choose from different categories, or just mess around until you find something you like. And also, if you want to buy something, you have to enter your private password (you have to enter it to change the settings too), so nobody can buy stuff behind your back. There are also apps that are completely FREE!

Well, there you are --that's my description of the iPad!

P.S. I wrote this report on the iPad, and I'm going to send it using the iPad, and I'm going to look at it online with the iPad! (that's how I knew all that stuff).

[Editor P.S: Youngzine looks quite good on the iPad, but some of the Flash games and videos don't work yet]


If you had (or have) an iPad, what would your favorite activity be?

My family shares an iPad mini, and I love it! I want to look into getting an ipod touch. I like the iphone 5c better though, I'm just not up to paying the phone bill. So I'm trying to see if there's a way to turn off the phone portion, or just not activate it so theres no fee. I've looked online for things like that, but I can't find anything. I'm not quite sure that's possible though. So if anyone knows about this, I'd appreciate it if you'd let me know. :)

That is the big deal I think. Them being way to expensive! I don't see how iPad is better then itouch. If someone explains that, then I would be happy! I'm going to do research!

My friend has an iPad and we both have iPod touches. We both agree the iPod touch is in fact better because it is portable! And cheaper! The screen is bigger, but for a couple extra inches, you have to add a couple extra hundred dollars! So me and my friend think the iTouch is better. Hope this helps!

The iPad is larger than the iTouch, which makes it more suitable for e-reading, web browsing, and similar activities. The iPad is also more powerful than the iTouch.

Exactly and they have the prices too high I don't think anyone can aford them due to gas prices and everthing going up.
