I’ve been keeping a secret. And it’s blue 🙂
Today is my birthday! A big one… Usually we just go out to a nice steak dinner, but this year was different, probably because it is the big one.
This year my sweet hubby gave me an iPad 2 for my birthday, and the secret is that he gave it to me last month! I’ve spent a good amount of time getting to know it. Okay, truthfully I’ve spent a lot of time playing Moonlight Lite mahjong and reading my blogs. I’ve downloaded lots of interesting apps, but haven’t explored them too much because I’m having too much fun playing mahjong.
Twice now I’ve had the chance to hook it up to my digital projector to show a Powerpoint presentation to other quilters. I really like how that works and, it’s so nice carrying around something this small. Should be great on airplane and road trips.
So far I’ve downloaded BlockFab-HD, QuiltCalc, and Quilt Shops. For the art apps, I’ve downloaded AutoCAD WS (I used to do AutoCAD for my job), Draw, DrawCast, Finger Sketch, FingerPaint, PhotoPad, and PS Express. I probably should try some of those out to see what I like best.
I also got Keynote, Evernote, iBooks and Kindle, and a few others. I’d love to hear what are your favorite apps to use, especially if they’re art or quilt related or would be useful for a traveling teacher.
