Our weekly poll is back, and this week we’re asking the important question: how exactly do you use iCloud on your iPad?

Ever since it was released back with iOS 5 in October 2011, the service has attracted around 300 million users as of April 2013 and with its tight integration with OS X, Apple have made it so much easier to keep data across all your devices in constant sync with each other. So go ahead and vote in this week’s poll (multiple answers are possible, of course) — we’d love to be able to build a picture of our readers’ iCloud habits!

We’re all trying to manage various pieces of information on a daily basis. How much do I have on my travel card? Am I nearing my data usage limit on my phone? Has that package I sent yesterday been delivered? To answer these questions we’d normally have to log in to each site and find the information we need.

Trouble is, this can get quite tedious if you’re wanting to quickly a number of different sources. Bjango’s Consume attempts to provide a single, unified place to view all these small bits of usage information and keep them just a tap away.


When I bought my first iPad, I wasn’t really sure what I was going to do with it. Over time, I learned that it was great for pretty much everything — games, writing, watching movies — but for the most part, I read and play games on my iPad.

My wife, on the other hand, she’s all about productivity on her iPad. She’s always getting things done and working on some new to-do list — she even uses it for her grocery lists.

What about you? What do you use your iPad for the most? Let us know in the poll to the right!

Many people wonder how they could justify the purpose of an iPad, not only to themselves but also to others (I’m sure there’s been many-a-spouse that was upset by the half-grand their significant other dropped on an iPad). Many reviews focus on the technical aspects of Apple’s game-changing tablet, but very few discuss how someone can work the iPad into an existing workflow.

That’s where I come in.
