It's here, it's in your hands, and if you're even more hardcore, you're probably surfing our website in mobile Safari on your iPad 2 right now. Doesn't it feel wonderful in your hands? Whether you're a second-generation adopter or this is the second iPad to join your family, there are still a few free apps out there you may not have considered. In this special edition of Free App Friday, we're got a couple of free apps you want to ensure are installed on your new toy.
Working and playing with an iPad is an immersive, singular experience. Designed to be held in two hands, cradled in a lap or propped up against a knee, the tablet is perfect for a bit of alone time: just you, your digital media and a few well-chosen apps.
But once you put your tablet down, it’s fair game for anyone else that you live with to it pick up and use. To keep what you do with your iPad private, you could password protect it, but that sort of thing just breeds mistrust and tablet envy. You might consider giving all comers free reign to tap and swipe to their heart’s content, but will they laugh or blush at your email or browser history as a result?
No one needs that kind of stress in their life. Let Mac|Life show you how to make sharing an iPad a little easier and more pleasurable for everyone with these six multi-user wonder apps.
