When iPadFamily began (the first day iPad was released in Australia) we had just one iPad (1), but now we've each got one! We're a real multiple-iPad family. Grandparents have one, great-grandma has one... from age 3 to age 97, everyone in our family has found the iPad to make a HUGE difference to our life.  Our girl is learning penmanship with her stylus, our  youngest boy is a documentary film master, and our eldest trains adults how to use their iPad! We love iPad and we know you will too!
