You wanna know what’s more embarrassing other than being a newbie iPad user? The fact that I’ve had an iPad for a YEAR but I’ve started using it just recently. I haven’t found a use for it last year, and it just became paperweight most of the time.
See, I’m not really an iPad person. I prefer iPhones or the iPod Touch because it’s smaller, and easier to bring on the go. Plus more apps are compatible with it.. exhibit a: Have you seen how ridiculous Instagram looks in iPad? They’ve undergone so many upgrades and updates but they still cannot manage to develop an iPad version. Ridiculous!!
A little bit of background: The iPad was bought together with my laptop last year. Originally my dad’s but I guess he likes his phone too much to give this gigantic tablet a chance.
Until recently.. when I decided out of the blue to crack its insides open. Suddenly my iPad went from something IDGAF-about to I-have-to-have-this-with-me-at-all-times kind of item. I wish I have done this sooner to save money on the actual books that I’ve bought.
So yeah, for the past couple of days I’ve been exploring Cydia and Installous nonstop and since then I’ve filled my iPad with
junk games. The first thing I did as soon as I got Cydia was to find the fix to hide that pesky Newsstand app. Bye bye, worthless iOS feature! Good riddance!
This is how my iPad looks right now. Lol I feel like I’ve lived under a rock for the past two years. Everything about it just looks cool to me right now.
Very neat and organized, just the way I like it. What are your current must-have apps on your iOS device? Preferably games. 🙂
Prior to discovering that I can actually just throw in PDFs (well, epub files really) in iBooks, I had a hard time organizing and fixing files on Stanza. Twas only yesterday that I found out you can also put files on iBooks, and not just the ones you bought from the Appstore. How silly of me lol.
For the games I am loving Words With Friends, Lara Croft (Tomb Raider), Mortal Kombat, Marvel vs. Capcom.. Cut The Buttons is the new “in” game, I’m guessing. It’s cute, the graphics are very sharp and nice.
My only complaint is that Instagram needs to develop an iPad version of their app because this is not okay to look at.
A million downloads and thousands of users and not one of them has complained about how ugly the app looks in a big iOS device??
That and I wish I waited a couple more years so we could’ve bought the newer iPad with a better camera and richer/crisper display. Mine is the fist gen and it doesn’t have a camera. Only good thing about it is that it’s a 64gb, so I can put a loooot of apps in it. 🙂
