iPad 2

Today it has been exactly one month since I got my second apple device iPad 2 Wi-Fi + 3G 16 GB. First Apple Device was an iPod 5th Generation with 60 GB Space. Till now I am happy with the the iPad. I am not only blown away by the UI and Graphics but also the superior design and intuitiveness. I am definitely proud owner of the most desirable gadget of this time and the last product released by legendary Steve Jobs.

I love the following per-loaded feature in particular

  1. Safari , one of the best browser on earth.
  2. Google Maps at its best in iPad 2, made for each other.
  3. Front camera is super while using Skype.
  4. iBooks, PDFs looks awesome.
  5. Works as Picture frame even when locked.
  6. Facetime Quality .
  7. Keyboad Splits wonderfully for typing while holding in landscape mode with thumbs
  8. Push Notification , every news , calendar and Facebook post is right there at the top

Following are the things I did on iPad to suite my needs

  1. All the apps I usually use for desktop like Dropbox , Google Maps etc

  2. OPlayer HD lite for streaming movie files from computer using FileZilla FTP server and watching them in TV using a composite cable and adapter . Flex player is an ad free alternative but it can not stream or play in TV
  3. Bought Stellarium-XL for Sky watching , its like Google sky map plus all feature of the Stellarium desktop version.
  4. Installed the VPN setting for work, work seamlessly . I still have no solution for VPN in Android

I also bought a smart cover for iPad 2 , which beautifully sticks to the screen and useful as stand while typing and watching movies.
