iPad Advice

I'm about to pull the trigger on a Apple iPad Air 2 MGTY2LL/A 9.7-Inch 128GB. I saw some iPad vs. Android
older threads here but I'm dumping my Android to try the iPad. With over 5,000 (mostly 5*) reviews on Amazon
I'm assuming it's a no-brainer.

Advice? Opinions?

I use my iPad constantly - currently on my third one, and iPad Pro (smaller screen). My second one died a premature death (trouble charging battery), which was pretty outrageous but I like my iPad so much I decided to splurge and trade it in (they actually gave me a trade-in allowance) and bought the most heavily loaded smaller iPad Pro and paid for Apple care, which I pretty much never do, because if anything goes wrong they will replace it. They don't fix these things anymore, they just replace them. It's crazy but I use it so much (at home, in bed mostly) that I can't live without it.

I used to have Samsung (i.e. Android) phones and absolutely hated them. I had a cheap DELL tablet thing that I got for free for review purposes that was just horrible. I do think about getting another Android tablet, but now with the Apple cloud it's just better to have Apple phone, tablet, Macbook - I am actually not that loyal to Apple products but I just feel like why bother with other crap.

Apple house here. Just be careful switching to Apple because leaving the eco-system is not easy. iMac, iPhone, MBP all play so well together.

I'm assuming it's a no-brainer.

Advice? Opinions?
One question.

How many Android apps have you purchased?

You'll have to buy them again when you switch to iOS.

Also, it's better to keep your phone and tablet the same OS so you can share apps, data, etc.

I have an iPad and iPhone and they work seamlessly together. I've never used an Android product so I don't know how well they do that.

I've had my iPad for years and it's one of those things that once you get it, you wonder how you ever got along without it.

I don't think the TV in the bedroom has been turned on since I got it.

I haven't jumped to The Weather Channel to get the forecast since I got it ( I use an app called Storm).

I haven't read a paper book since I got it.

I have Window's PC's at home and I have no issues using iTunes to sync my devices to copy music, books, movies, etc. on and off the devices.

Of course I rely on Plex for most of my movies.

Not sure what you're going to be using it for, but you may not need the 128 GB model.

I have a 32 GB and it's plenty big enough for me.

As I said, I typically don't keep movies on the device and I use my phone for music.

Something else to consider is to only get the Wi-Fi and not get the 3G.

I can make my iPhone a hot spot and connect that way, if I can't find free Wi-Fi.

Since I have Comcast for my home, I can connect to any Xfinity Wi-Fi spot and since anyone's Comcast cable modem that includes Wi-Fi, has this enabled by default, there are a boatload of them around.

Theres a google app to help transfer the apps from your account into the OSI format.

Not sure how well it works and it only works on apple products right out of the box..... but it may be worth a try if you have a ton of paid apps.

My whole family is on apple so that ecosystem works well for us with face time and iMessage, we can all communicate pretty seamlessly.
This when I lost my iPhone recently I could still keep in touch through my Ipad iMessage.

I don't need to sync phone with tablet.

Family members and other relatives are Apple users and it would be nice to use some of the apps to communicate with them.

I haven't bought any apps so that's a non-issue.

It's a $35 difference to go from 32 GB to 128 GB.

OK, so here are some, IMHO, must have apps.

As I said before, Storm is the best weather app out there.

Their radar map can also display the winds (surface or jet stream) and the old fashion frontal boundaries from TV weather in the before time.

It's from Weather Underground so it will find someone's weather station that's closest to you to give you the present conditions. It does a pretty accurate job of predicting rain/snow accumulations for your location as well.

I'd also get one called "Apps gone free". Every day it lists apps that are free that for that day.

If you think you're only slightly interested in the app, or might some day become interested, get it. You can always delete it as soon as you install it.

However, the way the App store works with Apple, you would now be on record as having "bought" it, so should you want to install it later, you won't have to pay for it.

Most of them are silly, but I've gotten some good apps for free that way.

You can get Word and Excel for free, so it's worth getting them.

If you plan on using your iPad to listen to music, I would strongly consider Audyssey.

These are the guys who developed the software that many Home Theater AV surround sound units use to set up the time delays and flatten the frequency response of the speakers.

What they did here was to apply the same frequency response concept to headphones used with a mobile device.

The effect is phenomenal.

Fair warning, the app is free but you'll have to pay a couple bucks to enable your specific headphones in the app. They give you a trial period to judge for yourself if it's worth the money.

If you have any media on your PC (movies or music), you must get Plex.

Put the server on your PC, tell it what folders you have the media in, and you can access all of that remotely on your iPad.

Even if you don't have media on your PC, it's worth doing for the hidden channels they have


Radio Paradise is a nice free streaming music source.

Edit:

Oh and don't forget a case.

I intentionally got a leather case from Snugg because it makes my iPad look like a notebook and not a tablet. I've had more than one person be surprised when they realize that I have an iPad and not a notebook in my hand. It just might make it less likely to be stolen if someone sees it sitting somewhere.

What took me so long? This thing is incredible and I've only scratched the surface. I don't use it for anything fancy or too complicated, but what a great piece of technology. It didn't take me long to navigate and figure things out. It's so incredibly user-friendly and lightning fast.

I love iMessage (with a gazillion emojis ) and FaceTime with family members. The awesome display; Touch ID; Pages; Photos; Calendar; the apps; and the list goes on.

I did return the expensive leather Apple case I purchased because even though it looked cool it lacked protection. I went with this $12.99 case and it serves my needs right now. Down the road I'll get the Snugg leather case.

OT: About the same time I purchased the iPad, my old Dell laptop running Vista itshay the edbay and I really missed Windows. I had tons of stuff backed up on a flash drive and wanted to reinstall on a Windows laptop. I purchased a Lenovo ThinkPad 2-in-1 Yoga with Windows 10 and now I have the best of both worlds.
