At some point I may have to finally break down and get a tablet or other updated technology for not just every day use, but also for trumpet, music, etc. I have been historically as long as they have been making 'smart' phones an android person, but more often I see people with iPads and/or iPhones for music related activities. e.g. downloading and putting all of the sheet music on an iPad or using a tuner which I have the freebie one on my phone. A guy I do lessons with had historically been an android person as well, but decided to get an iPad and then to make things consistent went from android to iPhone as well so that they both would sync up 'play-together' better.... No PUN intended. ok maybe a little bit. Also the other thought is whether you could have music on a mini-ipad and actually be able to read it or if you need to go with the full sized iPad or comparable android tablet? of course as you look into technology there are other things that I have seen before where you can connect your phone to a mixing station or microphone / recording studio, etc. etc. Those that have experimented or tried different set ups, let me know what you liked or disliked about your set up. Or what software you had to buy vs free play store apps.
