iPad Apps for Parents & Older Children

Let's face it, the iPad is REALLY cool.  It's the way technology SHOULD be.  No more windows floating around the screen... just swipe to switch applications.  Want to do something NOW... download an App for it and a few moments later you're DOING IT. We knew the iPad was going to make a difference to our personal and professional lives, but as we continue to utilise the features and new apps for the iPad we are STILL finding ways to make our everyday tasks quicker, easier, more efficient.
