It would be cool if Numbers synced with Quickbooks.

Does anybody know anything about the xoom?

Seems like it would do the trick. Don't need anything fancy, just something to access one website.

It's a free app, but you have to subscribe for a 30 day free trail and then after that's up you've got to decide weather or not it benefits you to pay the subscription or pay for a year. Personally I will pay it for a year and be done. I am very very pleased with it and its stupid easy to use.



I have my iPad set up on 4G data plan with AT&T. I've been a customer of theirs sense 1997 with my personal phones. I set this iPad up on its very own plan as a business right off and it's so much easier to not have to figure out what's what compared to data. I have my business number and company number on my iPhone as the same. Reason being is because I have a older plan that is unlimited everything and its no longer offered so its cheaper to keep it that way.


The iPad is the only tablet I would have. I have never had one single issue with any of my Apple products. I have direction at all times to my customers or to a bid walk or something if i need it. I'm constantly on my phone and only average around 2 gigs of data a month. So I got a 3gig data plan for iPad. Should be plenty.

What are some of the ways you guys use tablets or iPads and what apps do you utilize the most. I like being able to use QB from the computer also.

I as well wouldn't mind seeing that. Thank you.

I also just noticed that I quoted myself an not whom I had clicked so I thought. That's what I get for not double checking that.

This is an old master copy. The idea is that we Insert our weekly mowing routes and just have the program automatically schedule the route every week on the same day for the while season. Then as appointments come in it jobs we plug them into a time slot. Once a job is complete we simply check the box. We can make notes if needed. It works well for us. When my office manager is back in ill snag some more screen shots if an old week from 2012.
