Things you need to know before buying an iPad [ep 24]

with No Comments

Whenever I mention using iPad for reading music, I always get a lot of questions about the apps that I use, the best screen size, memory needed, and any of the accessories that one could get (or not).

In today’s video I’m answering all these questions (and more)!

I am also going to to share some advice on how to make this big purchase more affordable, so if you’re on a tight budget but are really tempted to get an iPad – this is the video for you!

I will certainly not tell you to get the biggest and most expensive model. And neither I will try to convince you that all the accessories available out there are “absolutely essential”. Instead, I will help you find out what are your priorities and decide what to look for!

If you’re curious about the apps that I use for reading music, check out the previous episode where I show you how to use ForScore for marking music on an iPad.
