iPad = Possibilities

The iPad: Seemingly Limitless

I recently have had the incredible opportunity to purchase and own an iPad.  Everyone that I have spoken to, who owns and uses an iPad has nothing but good things to say about it.  I always thought that an iPad was just an overly large iPod touch and nothing more. The little I knew about it is incredible.  I have been amazed by its possibilities.  This blog is going to be dedicated to the knew things I learn about the iPad, week by week, and some things I have recently learned.  I want to share the amazing things I learn.  I am excited about this blog because it will force me to investigate and learn more about this machine.  I will be focusing primarily on the apps that you can download to operate it.

App of the week: Angry Birds

Angry Birds is not an app only used on the iPad, it can be used on the iPod or iPhone, but it is such a fun game that it has to be the first app on my list.  This is a strategic game where you hurl birds at green pigs to try and destroy them.  The pigs have stolen your eggs and you have to rescue them.  There are many levels and you have to strategically aim your birds to destroy everything around the pigs so you can reach them.  There are boards, bricks, metal objects, and other obstacles that you have to get around, or through, in order to get to the pigs.  Each level you beat you receive stars dependent on how well you did; 3 stars indicates a high score, 2 stars an average score and 1 star just for beating the level but with a very low score.  Angry Birds is a very simple game, but it is entertaining.  I grew up playing very basic video games and so it suites me.  I enjoy a simple but challenging game way more than the complex games out there today.  If you are looking for fun but don't want to pay 50 dollars for one game, Angry Birds is the game for you!!


  1. I'm loving your blog because I want an ipad so bad. I'm going to keep reading so I can gain more knowledge on them before I buy my own!

  2. Angry birds is the best game ever! I have been playing it for months and still haven't gotten tired of it.

  3. I also own an i pad and love it. You should keep posting on it!! Also, feel free to check out my blog if you are interesting in Tiger Woods.

  4. I have an iPad as well, beat the whole app of Angry Birds HD- very addicting game. The only thing I wish it had was actual software i.e. Word, Excel, etc. It does have other versions, but to transfer it to an iMac or PC, it does not transfer formatting changes done; although it is very convenient for school with internet, iTunesU, and other options to view and listen to lectures whenever you like.

  5. I love and hate Angry Birds. It is such a great game but you can be doing great and flying through the levels and then when you get stuck on a level it really sucks that you can't skip it and get to any of the next levels, but the satisfaction of finally getting past the level is sweet.
