Sprint iPad Mini - Thoughts, App suggestions, etc.

Recommended Posts

So my birthday passed two weeks ago, and the girlfriend surprised me with a Sprint iPad mini. So far I'm loving it for Kindle reading, Netflix, etc. but I want to know what more I can do with it?

 

Any app suggestions? Anything cool it does?

I'm going to get one (WiFi). I'm in school so I'm using it for textbooks.<br /><br />Edit: there are some awesome board games in the app store like yahtzee and risk.<br /><br />Sent from my SPH-L710 using Tapatalk 2<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />Tapatalk is getting a 2 star rating now.<br /><br />I've had enough of this crap!<br /><br />Edit: if you can't tell, tapatalk is getting ridiculous here.<br /><br />Garble garble<br /><br /><br /> garble<br />

It turns out I couldn't find a single wifi iPad mini in my area (Apple Store, Target, Walmart, Best Buy or anywhere else) but found a good local deal on craigslist for the iPad 3 so I'm getting that instead.

 

Same apps though. ;)

I went kind of crazy with apps on my new iPad. It's not a mini but I am sure most should work fine on the mini.

  • Paper by FiftyThree - Sketching/Drawing
  • Notability - Notetaking; Document Editing; will sync voice notes to text/handwritten notes
  • Penultimate - Notetaking, Writing
  • Dropbox
  • NFL Mobile
  • NBA Gametime
  • WatchESPN
  • Google Earth
  • Skype
  • iBooks
  • Anthill - Strategy Game
  • Amazon Instant Video

That's just a portion of the apps I got. Some are free, some are paid. I didn't list all the games because that is really subject to your interests.

Goodreader for managing documents, reading files, opening ZIPs, etc

 

AirVideo for live streaming video from your PC.

 

Angry Birds Space & Star Wars, Where's my Water, Where's my Perry, ERA and JellyDefense if you like TD games. Bastion is a kickass action game, Drawn: the Painted Tower and its two sequels are Myst-like puzzle adventure games, well worth the price.

 

Intellicast for weather.

 

Downcasts beats the built-in podcast app by a mile.

 

Notability was already mentioned.

 

 

And of course my app, Storm Sim :)

Sweet, thanks guy!

 

So which "guy" are you thanking cuz there were a lot of "guys" who contributed to this thread? If you're gonna single out just one "guy" out of the many "guys" the least you could do is identify said "guy". B)

 

I had to cut this rant short because the forum will only allow 10 quotation marks per post.

Box is far superior to Dropbox, IMHO. Most apps will upload to both but Box gives all iOS devices free 10gb of space. Another app well worth the price is UPad. It allows you to type or write on PDF's as well as create blank pages to draw, etc...

 

Box for LG Android users gave me 50GB of free storage, and when Box was giving iDevice users 50GB, I signed up for that too, so I have 100GB of free online storage space just thru Box. :)

You have a lot in your Box. Are you Pandora?

Nope. Both accounts are empty. Haven't started storing stuff on them yet.

 

Oh, Josh, you rain on my clever parade...

So what is the use of having 100gb when you use zero?

 

Haven't had time to start storing stuff on them. Not sure what I want to put on there. When I'm at home in Pahrump I wouldn't have access to stuff stored on there.

No, I need an extra 50GB to have Pandora's Box!

So, I hate to revive an old thread, but I just jumped on an iPad mini deal on Easy Pay, and now I need more app suggestions. And no, Office for iPad is out of the question because I'm not paying for Office 365. Microsoft sucks for that requirement.

What type of apps are you looking for?

    • Luckily, that hasn't arisen in my area where I am, aside from having B14 (well, ALL of AT&T signal) not work at all in Coosa county, Alabama. I wish there was a service for first responders that would go to ANY available carrier, provider, etc..and in the absolute worst case scenario, would give us service. I've been on an ambulance, trying to find an address, and my driver actually had to pull over and we pulled out a map book and tried to find the road using the "old fashioned way".. and that takes valuable time away that sometimes may be vital to someone surviving. BUT, I will say that I've only seen that in Coosa county... both my Tmo and AT&T phones had zero service and I couldn't get GPS, and neither could my driver (VZW service). Maybe satellite will help with that in those times where that occurs.. but that's an extreme example.     Edit to add: Let me add some context to this.. Coosa county isn't regular coverage area for my job.. so it's not a regular thing that we are dispatched to Coosa county.. and actually, there's been a change and that county now has it's own ambulance service that operates.. so the only time we might receive a request is if it's a multiple casualty scenario, or it's a transfer going home from our contracted hospital.  The way that reads above, it may seem like we are just out without some sort of GPS gadget to direct us on where to go, but for the most part, we know our coverage area pretty well. Dispatch can also give us cross streets for reference inside our coverage area (and our home county). Coosa just isn't a regular area for my job to run in. 
    • "Priority" doesn't mean "exclusivity."  When emergency services don't need B14, AT&T can use it for everyone else.  The trade-off is that when it is needed for emergency services, they not only get all of B14, but they have also arranged for priority on the rest of the AT&T network as well.  Beats having spectrum sitting unused most of the time and then not having enough when disaster strikes, as it could be without a partnership with a wireless company like AT&T. - Trip
    • I've wondered if being on the first responder plan has the priority over other 'regular' lines in the same way firstnet does (or, supposed to do with B14...I've seen normal customers on AT&T hit B14 so it's not {specifically} for Firstnet only)...  
    • T-Mobile prices people pay are all over the map. The free lines are key, so take them if ever offered again.  Your priority level would be a key factor for your price.  Only T-Mobile would know the average prices people pay.  Samsung has been offering very good deals at time of new model introductions so I have gone that route for factory unlocked, which allows me to also have a Verizon priority MVNO for when T-Mobile signal fails or I manually override.
    • I also wanted to post a speed test result.. I only do these once in a while from my home area because we are gonna be the last to see changes, like load balancing.  Right now they are digging all over the place for fiber installs, so I'm not sure what the hold-up is on making the upload speed a little more in-line with download speeds, but here is the most recent from my area:   https://www.speedtest.net/my-result/a/10133670525
