The Official iPad Owner's Club


Welcome to The [un]Now Completely Official iPad Owner's Club! This little cranny of OCN is meant to be a place where any iPad owners - past, present, or even future - can come and discuss all things iPad. (If you want your name on the members list, though, you would need to be an actual owner, heh.)

I'm at a point where other things have most of my attention but I'm still here tending the thread. I monitor all the posts and such, even if I don't have time to reply every time.

Please let me know via a post ITT if you have any information you would like to see added here. thumb.gif Again, thank you to RJacobs28 for the artwork crowning our thread. Very nice job!

Welcome folks! I'm working on updating the OP so it's much better but currently researching the best ways to do that. Glad to see a few people around.

Everybody's lovin their iPad3's, right? Has anyone who has actually used one got any real complaints? I can't find any but I'm not an Apple hater anymore, and never really was, with all my heart. smile.gif

Well, if you plan to use it on the go a lot, AND you don't mind paying the big monthly fee for LTE service, get the 4g. Otherwise, the wifi model is great - but there's really a lot of apps that are a no-go without internet connectivity. So really do take that into consideration. I went with the wifi model and I'm very happy with that decision since I'm basically always at home. Plus, if I wanted to pay a monthly fee for mobile 4g lte, I'd get the verizon mifi hotspot so it isn't tethered to my iPad. Although, grabbing that link I noticed the thing doesn't seem to have great reviews. Hmmm. headscratch.gif

Anyway, the other thing I'd point out is that if you plan to keep a lot of content or are really app-happy, retina-ready apps do take up quite a bit of space. The 16GB model seems like it's gonna be okay for me, but be aware that 3GB of those 16 are system reserved. You are allotted 13GB for your own apps, music, video, etc. I've used up about half installing 27 apps, including iMovie, iPhoto and Garage Band, which all take up a lot. Also about 60 podcasts are in.

Welcome, Ben! I had the iPod Touch 4G before this, which I got for free for opening up a new checking account at Key Bank shortly after the 4G was released. I understood, after that first iOS experience, why Apple devices are just SO DAMN ALLURING and why hardware should not always be divorced from software. The Android fanboys are always quick to point out that the smoothness, the crisp, fabulously instantly responsive user experience provided by iOS devices is more difficult to achieve on an Android device because those poor developers have to work to hard to optimize their code for such a wide array of hardware. Although this commentary is typically provided as a defense for Android's obviously sub-par performance, I find it to be equally, if not more-so, a defense for Apple's closed technologies, their refusal to license iOS for non-Apple devices, and their efforts to ensure that their devices only run their code. I can't believe I'm saying this, because I've been a real hater in the past because I believe in open-source projects, I believe in the availability of information, and I don't believe it's cool to limit what I can do with hardware I have purchased and own. These philosophical values, however, are very firmly now riding back-seat to the overriding value of a quality experience. For my money, I want a device that is just "a pleasure to use" and "a joy to look at." As much as I believe I should be able to do what I want with the device, if I have to give that up in order to get a far, far superior product and user experience, then by all means. Take it. Because I've rarely, if ever, been frustrated while using an iOS device. 99% of the time, my experience on the Touch as well as now the iPad 3 is almost hard to believe. I touch, it responds IMMEDIATELY and the device listens to what I tell it to do. I never have to wonder if the device received my fingerly message. When I used an Android device... suffice it to say, that kind of responsiveness was simply unavailable to me.

And we haven't even started talking about that screen yet. Someone in a review I read somewhere described it as being like looking at a high quality glossy photo. I couldn't agree more. It is so absolutely crystal clear that I find myself preferring to use it for anything I can - over my 26" Samsung LCD. Web surfing, email, reading blogs... all much better on the iPad than on my PC thanks to that screen. And although typing on it can be burdensome, the dictation feature is astoundingly accurate and lets me say a whoooole lot without demanding that I wait or pause.

Overall, this is just one wickedly cool device.

Congrats and welcome!

I'm in. I've got a black "new" 32GB iPad. I sold my white 16GB iPad 2 and the screen compared to the iPad 2 is fantastic. The iPad 2 screen was good compared too other screens but doesn't stack up to the new iPads screen.
