March 31, 2010 | The iPad Is Perfect for Sheet Music
Despite what the techno-elitist naysayers say, we've got an iPad enroute and simply can't wait. We chuckle every time we read a fiery negative reaction to this technological wonder. Sure, it has the tune storage capability of Apple's popular iPhone and iPod Touch, along with their signature touch screen space expanded four times. What we get excited about: page turns.
Think about having your music set in front of you, accessible with a literal swipe of the screen. There are already gadgets out there currently in use by professionals on stage that only serve as a music reader, and won't even allow you to surf the net like this will. Plus, those cost, $1000. Our 32 gig iPad was less than $600. Reading a Real Book off this, or a set list of 12 single sheets, with no paper fuss! Priceless...
We'll also enjoy viewing the videos we like to rent on an iPod Touch, but with a significantly larger viewing area. We're even hoping we can get Mel Bay to put some of their popular books in this format, WITH immediate access to accompanying materials.
Can't be that far away!
