Apple iPad
 By: Jessica Clark, APR

This year I purchased an Apple iPad, and I am so glad that I did.  I have had an iPhone for a few years now, and rely on it for so many things regarding my personal and professional schedule.  So I knew that I loved the platforms, apps, and programs that were part of the Apple products.  

One of the main reasons I purchased the iPad was to use as a mini-computer in meetings.  I was always carrying my large laptop to every meeting to take notes and to access the internet, and it was such a cumbersome thing to have.  Now with my iPad, I can carry it in my purse, and I have a cover that contains a keyboard, so I can use it as a computer in meetings.   I purchased a few special programs that assist in my needs with the creation of and storage of documents, and those help with my record keeping.  The keyboard operates as a blue tooth, so I can have the keyboard out of the cover and on the desk closer to me without wires or worrying about connections.  And being able to access the internet in meeting areas and hotels has been great as well.  
I guess you could say I love Apple, as I use both my phone and my iPad to email, keep my calendar, store and take photos, keep up on social media, and more.  Plus, the entertainment and game apps are always handy when you are in a waiting room or have down time.
