I am playing around with my new 32gig wi-fi iPad!  It is amazing reading the text - so clear.  My main reason for purchase was Logos, reading and note taking rather than in depth study.  It is perfect, better than I expected.  And the logos app is snappy on it too.

I just need to make sure my family don't steal it now.  We had great fun this afternoon creating a couple of movie trailers with the family and iMovie - maybe I should have not let them see they would enjoy it ;)

I just got my first iPad and I have to say that I think the layout for Logos for the iPad would be better if it lookedv more like the Mac version and less like the iPhone version. Plenty of screen space to have more there. The passage guide shoud at least include the Bible verse you are using

Thanks a lot,

This was a very interesting link. I like that the bookbook case has a zipper to enclose it and keep out the rain if we get caught in a shower.

All the other posts have been interesting. This is getting a lot of comments.

Does it not include the passage in the upper right hand corner?

Had my new 64gb verizon enabled iPad in hand friday morning around 9.  I actually called the fedex store and asked them to hold it rather than deliver so that i could get it sooner.  Upgraded from (and gave to wife) a 32 gb wifi only ipad 2.  I use a Yoobao executive leather case.  I love it because it is very thin and looks much like a padfolio.  It also has the ability to stand up in two directions.  Today my wife bought a Speck pixelskin case.  We were disappinted to find that it did not include the magnets to turn the ipad on and off.  If my Yoobao case is any indication, most ipad 2 cases will fit the new ipad as well.

I meant the actual text, not just the reference.

Gotcha. By the way… the "iPad app" is the same app as the "iPhone app." The app has UI differences for each platform, but its the same app.

I hadn't compared them, but I hope that Logos considers changing that, especially with the display on the new iPad. Plenty of room to add more info on the screen for the iPad.

I have the leather Incase for my iPad 1, and it's way too heavy.

Ron, since you have both, please convince me that saving 100-150 dollars to buy a refurbished ipad 2 will be a smart choice and that I won't think I need Retina display Wink .  . . I did get some birthday money for an ipad, which I was totally surprised and thrilled to hear.  My main question is whether to stay with the 16 GB or move up to 32.  Again, because of price, will probably go 16 GB.  I will mostly use it for Logos and some Kindle, some free games and perhaps an occasional movie (rent and/or my own HD movie capture).  I think 16 will be enough, but I am a little concerned, because I know I won't have all 16 gig available to me.

I have a BOOKBOOK case, http://twelvesouth.com/products/bookbook_ipad/ and while I haven,t used it yet it design suited me well the case is light and very sturdy. and should be very easily removable. 

 

-Dan

Dan, I'd seen these.  they look cool, for sure.  would be interested in your feedback when you start using it.  I think right off the back, I would like to be able to display it either portrait or landscape, which bookbook can't do (only landscape, it seems).  Curious about the weight, and the ease of using it to read when in bed. And perhaps removing it, as necessary.

I suggested years ago that we should have access to our Logos resources on Palm devices. I got an iPhone mainly for the Logos app. After two years I finally got an iPad on Friday — 64 GB 3rd generation. The screen is so beautiful I already can't stand looking at Logos on my laptop (for some reason Logos looks terrible on my laptop while other applications look fine.)

Anyway, I am going to love reading on this device. I believe in protecting equipment like this. Unfortunately the smart cover seemed too pricey as well as needing a separate back case. I'm a Zagg fan, but again — too pricey. Found these two items on Amazon and installed as soon as iPad arrived. Both seem great!

Case, $24.95: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B006R2OH4A/ref=oh_o01_s00_i00_details

Screen protectors (3 for $9.79 and looks better than the Zagg on my iPhone did. Can't tell that it hinders the awesome retina display in any way): http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004TRYENE/ref=oh_o00_s00_i00_details

Not worried about the family stealing the iPad. I am happily sharing this wonderful device!

wonder if you'd ever find the need to be in portrait mode?  It does look nice.  price is right.

Ron, First off when I got my Ipad 1 I only had the choice of 16 or 64 gig... I knew that I wanted the 64.   Normally with about 50 of my logos books downloaded, a few movies, several games and in general about 200 apps... I have about 16-18 gig free at any given time... If your logos is extensive and you plan on downloading all of your books, then the 16 gig will not be large enough.  A 16gig ipad has about 14 gig usable... just a thought.

The BookBook weighs about the same as a copy of macworld magazine. I will let you know more when i have my iPad tuesday at the latest.if you are talking about using it as a stand the leather strap secures it well for a stand in  either viewing positions. as for in bed i will let you know by wednesday...

Dan, i wish i could be more convincing.  Don't look at a retina display and you'll never miss it.  :). Is it worth $100?  I don't think so but combined with better graphics performance, faster processor, and voice recognition it is to me.  Also, i would never, ever encourage someone to go with a 16gb model.  The 32gb model actually has 28gb of available space.  With my 32gb i was constantly having to delete apps and pics to m ake sure i wouldnt fill it up.  A friend planned to buy a 16gb but because they were out of stock he got a 32 as well.  He is not a logos user but quickly filled it up with pics, songs, and video.  Most people who buy the ipad tend to use it much more than anticipated.  All that said, my 32gb ipad 2 that now belongs to my wife still packs plenty of punch for pure logos use.

Hi Dan. FWIW, I have trouble imagining buying smaller than the 32GB model. I don't know about Logos, but some apps are taking up a good bit more storage due to the requirements for the Retina display. I'm almost persuaded to buy the 64GB model, but I'm having enough trouble persuading myself to spend $600 (plus taxes plus cover) for the 32GB model. As inexpensive as memory is, it is unfortunate that Apple chose to stay with the 16/32/64 GB models instead of going with 32/64/128 GB models.

Also, again FWIW, I had been holding off buying an iPad since last summer because of the rumored Retina display for what was to be iPad 3. I do understand tight funds, but I think the Retina screen would keep me content longer with this tablet than with the lower resolution of the iPad 1 or 2. Then again, I'm really picky about such things. If you are not, count yourself blessed! Wink

The new iPad retina display is sharper; Apple has book screen shot comparison => http://www.apple.com/ipad/features/ (with movable magnifying glasses)

Another review mentions older iPad's displays are fuzzy in comparison => http://www.businessinsider.com/new-ipad-retina-display-2012-3

thanks, Dan.  I am noticing the price, about 3 times more than others I am looking at on amazon.  that may count me out right now.  but I would still be interested in your first hand report.

too late . . . Wink

Ron Cook:

all things being equal, I would agree with you.  but, after sitting on this a weekend, I realize any money to buy is only from birthday money, which limits my options.  funny, a few months back, was pining for a Fire . . . now, I'm trying to work the angle on a brand new 64 GB WiFi/4G . . . lol.

Ron Cook:
Also, i would never, ever encourage someone to go with a 16gb model.  The 32gb model actually has 28gb of available space.  With my 32gb i was constantly having to delete apps and pics to m ake sure i wouldnt fill it up.  A friend planned to buy a 16gb but because they were out of stock he got a 32 as well.  He is not a logos user but quickly filled it up with pics, songs, and video.  Most people who buy the ipad tend to use it much more than anticipated.

this input is tougher to ignore.  but the jump from 16 to 32 is $100, unless I go 1st gen refurb . . . Wink  I basically have $400 to work with.  I will probably go 16 GB with a cover for about 25-30 bucks.  BUT . . . I may go 32 refurb ipad2.

i've been following your saga, going back several months . . .  Wink  now that I have the possibility of getting one, your leanings toward bigger and better are providing quite a quandary for me in my own decision (reference above in this post . . . ) Stick out tongue

thanks, all, for your input.

I suppose, i could go with the cheap 16 GB for now, and when finances change, resell it for a decent amount and just spring a little more for a little more power/display/space.

I speak from the minority, as I have the 16 gb version of the new iPad. I have managed even with a good number of apps not to put a dent in the 13.3 gb which are available. I qualify it by saying that I did not buy a iPad for movies or music strorage. It was bought primarily for preaching, on the go study using logos, and keeping up wit prayer request etc.

After using the iPad 2 16 gb for a year and never dropping to less than 7 gb I personally couldn't justify for myself the extra 100 dollars. If you have the money I would certainly recommend a larger size storage as bigger means less have to manage space.

Logos is the app with the biggest file size on my iPad and I have about 800 mb of books downloaded, as many books in my library are deemed non essential to quick on the go study.

It is possible with less storage to still make due, if you don't have the funds available. You must budget what's important to you. If movies and music are important to carry around, then you probably want bigger. Pictures And personal movies can be managed by buying he camera addition that has a sd card reader.

That being said I've never heard of anyone complaining about having too much space, and i have heard of many who wished they had more.
