While I am a fan of my iPad, I suppose I should have said that the tablet
is the single greatest advancement, etc....... I do give Apple the credit for mainstreaming this new world, although, there are many follow on competitors.
That said, I really like the integration between my iPad and iPhone. The later is often in my pocket aboard and I've often used it to peek at Charts and Tides, rather walk over to the chartplotter. I'll tell you a secret. I go below to use the head and my wife takes the helm in tight quarters and my iPhone sits on the counter showing me where she is going.
Its nice that almost all apps I buy for the iPad are free to install on my iPhone.
I also like the reverse integration of my iPhone text messages being delivered to my iPad. I've often been reading at night and see a text pop up from the kids. This stuff just happens, no effort to synch.
