Modelry - A Random Walk through Internet Real Estate: William Johnson Announces a new Special Group- the iPad User Group

William Johnson Announces a new Special Group- the iPad User Group

I love my iPad too!  (not an iPad 2 though).  I too believe the iPad and other tablets will dramatically change how the real estate industry and business works.  I would love to hear about how others on ActiveRain are using their iPad or other tablets.


William JohnsonAnnounces a new Special Group- the iPad User Group

My New iPadI received my iPad 2 today and seems like I have been waiting so long. A few months ago knowing I would receive the new iPad 2 today on my Birthday, I set up and reserved the group name " iPad User Group". I have been using the iPads at the Apple store for a while now and already I have learned some of the ins and out so I started a group that is now active.

More and more of us in real estate and related industries are gravitating to the iPad so it seems fitting to start us all out right with a "User Group" where we share ideas, apps, and ways of using it to increase our business and the joy of doing it.

Mine is still in SYNC mode since opening up my gift a couple hours ago. So I will be back to share more and more but wanted to get the word out for those that already have an iPad as well as those of you that can benefit with lots of new  information about the iPad as we write our posts and tutorials.

The only ActiveRain member I am aware that is currently using the iPad is Pat Kennedy from Washington DC area.  She loves hers as I and many others of you will soon discover.

Hopefully you will find the need to join the new iPad User Group.

I have a Galaxy Tab with T-Mobile.  I am not sure I can type while in ActiveRain.  IT does not seem to be able to do that.  I'd love to have an iPad

Dear Niki,
Sorry, fellow AR members - I am a confirmed and devoted ANDROID platform (is 'platform' the right word?) user.  Guess I will join the iPad Users Group to read what you "apples" like best!

Have a happy day -

Hi Niki, First off I owe you a call and I will do that this week. Thank you so much for re-blogging this and bringing attention to this new group. And I know you are right that the iPad and other app based  tablets will change the way we do our trade. To have the CEO of AR re-blog my post gives me a real sense of pride! Thank you for that!

I'm a Blackberry girl (heck the RIM organization is a half hour from my house) so I purchased the Playbook. Love the camera on it for uploading videos to Youtube.  The iPad seems to be more popular though because of all the apps.  But I don't want mine for games but for business purposes.

Thank you for pointing this out to us Niki. I'm joining the group right now as I'm in the process of doing the research prior to taking the plunge into the iPad market.

Thanks for the Re-Blog, I missed it the 1st time. 

William, thanks for creating the group ... I have 1 and am not really liking it. I find it hard to do anything other than read or play in social media sites. I cant create docs or even post comments on AR :/ I'm off to join the group ... I'm sure I'll get answers, tips, & support better than Apple could ever give ~ It is, afterall full of ActiveRainers :)
