I've never exactly been a fan of the I-pad but after having a play on one this weekend I have thoroughly changed my mind...
I always thought I-padders looked complete and utter fools trying to take photo's about town with something roughly the same size as a small TV. The mini however is about half the size, and much lighter than you'd expect, especially compared to the original. And best bit... I spent half a day taking snaps at my boyfriends graduation and didn't feel at all like an idiot!
The newer iOS7 was custom built for the new sized tablet and you can definitely tell. To be honest I was always a fan of the update but I know others, (Nick included), who hated it and refuse to download it until last minute. Although some bits of the design are a little confusing - (to switch between camera and video you swipe, not touch. Believe me, it took about half an hour for me to work it out) - I think overall the redesign was needed. It's been the same set up since the I-pod touch was released six years ago.
I was against Apple for so long - yes I owned an I-pod like every other sane teenager in this world but I refused to jump on the I-phone band wagon... until three months ago.
It's a slippery slope I tell you!
