While I'm still running on iPad 1, do you think it's worth to get one of these latest gadgets?
Not specifically unless there is a really compelling reason and I don't see any features that the iPad3 doesn't have.
One thing I am confused about is the other iPad released at the same time... The specifications seem to be the same as an iPad3 but with the iPhone5 dock connector. The media called it an iPad4.. but what is the difference..?
I haven't seen anything in the documentation or developer site that tells me I have to code differently for the iPad mini as far as I have stumbled across so far...
I have one function that tells me the device from an ioctrl() or sysioctl() or something... iPhone3GS, iPhone 4S, iPad2 (Wifi), etc ... So that might want to be updated for the iPad mini but otherwise...
I bought an iPad2 because my end users said they had issues on the iPad2 that weren't evident on the iPad3. Turns out not to be the case and it was on special anyway...
Dr Wife is talking about learning Objective-C now
... but then I have lots and lots of things to code for already some help might be nice. If it was help.
If you are still running on an iPad1 then do you see the apps in the app store that end in (HD)... Those are retina specific and higher resolution so
Can you run iOS6 on an iPad1...? If not then no Siri...love it or loath it.... You'd get sharper clearer images on a Retina display than on an iPad1.
The only question I would ask myself is "am I feeling rich?"... Yes, then blow some money on a new toy... Otherwise I don't need it, unless its for work or something.
I'd consider an Android but I already have an Android tablet and I really really hate Java unless there is real money in it..
