gr_home1.pngOops. I forgot to create this folder on the iPad but the apps are still there!
There are many Camera apps and most have some special options. Below is what we have on our iPads and how you could use them. Keep in mind there are some other APPS that allow you to use the camera but it is NOT their main function. Use these camera apps and put the photos into other applications such as Splice, Comic Book... There are A LOT of camera apps out there. Most are much better than these basic few but many are not free. See also... Productivity A V

If you take a bunch of photos please be sure to DELETE THEM!
