Resource for you iPastors

I love my iPad, and with Apple making a large fortune on the new iPad launch (nearly $2 billion in the first weekend), there are clearly a lot of other people who love the iPad as well. Some people love them too much.

If you’re a pastor who uses an iPad, drift on over to iPad in Ministry. They don’t post often, but when they do, it is usually interesting content.

Here are a list of things I do and don’t do with my iPad:

  • I carry my iPad around, but I don’t preach from it. I am too animated when I speak. I’d much rather lose my grip on a $25 Bible than on my $— iPad! (I don’t even want to think about how much I spent on the thing some days.)
  • I use only the Apple Smart Cover because that was how Apple designed the iPad to be used. I had a third party black leather case, but ultimately I decided the Zen of the unit without ornamentation was for me.
  • I spent the $80 to have the iPad encased in clear plastic – at the kiosk outside of the Apple store – and it is the best investment I made with the thing. I will never use an unprotected iPad again.
  • I use four apps more than anything else (Evernote, Logos, Netflix and Facebook) but I have more than 200 apps on the iPad. Why not, right?

I love my iPad, but won’t be upgrading to the new one any time soon.

  1. Thanks for the link to my site and your kind words.

    I’d like to hear more about how you had your iPad encased in clear plastic. I hadn’t heard of that before.

    1. Zagg has a system called “Invisible Shield”. You pay $75 for front and back coverage and it is phenomenal. We have a kiosk in front of our local Apple store. I have had all our touch products covered. If the cover is damaged or anything, it is $10 to replace the whole thing. I’ve had my iPad for a year and replaced it once only because the case I had the iPad in left nasty black stains everywhere. Without the invisible shied, I would have permanently damaged my iPad.

      1. No, not at all – as long as it is applied correctly. That’s why I pay the extra couple of dollars to have it applied rather than doing it myself.
