The ability to use something like Evernote and share notebooks with others is huge. I do not utilize it to its fullest yet, but it is very helpful if you run multiple crews, to save job info so it is easy to find later, etc.

But, I have typical (or worse) left handed handwriting. Sometimes I cannot read my own handwriting.

I do not use a Mac. I want to, but do not. Between Dropbox, Evernote, and an
Office app that can handle Microsoft conversions, it is not an issue. I have never synced an iOS device to a computer directly

You can either run a windows simulation program like VMware or Parallels or you can install a partition in the hard drive and install a real copy of windows but then you need to restart the computer to switch between mac and windows. That's what I do currently as I run quickbooks on the windows side and most everything else on the mac. Actually I rarely use the mac anymore as I use my iPad for a lot of stuff. Writing up proposals, PaintTalk, emails, PaintTalk, surf the web, PaintTalk, Evernote, PaintTalk. I guess that about covers it.

I am the same way now. The computer gets used for quickbooks, setting up larger spreadsheets, and to put blueprints on a larger second monitor for estimating new construction. iPad is most of everything else.

This is on my business wish list


I've never watched this video though, so hopefully it isn't stupid.

I got my iPad as an add on to my existing AT&T plan for $10/month for shared cellular data. Wifi only models have no monthly fee and cost less. I thought the cellular data would come in handy out in the field. The iPad itself was around $500 I think. PaintTalk is awesome on the iPad!
