In March I posted about Apple’s iPad and what it could mean for us gamers. Even back then there were several apps that make a gamer’s life easier. But recently I learned about Dicebook. Dicebook is not just another PDF viewer but allows you to roll the dice while viewing PDFs. Since the iPad’s multitasking abilities are pretty limited, this could be quite handy.

Well I do not own an Ipad but one of my players does. When I'm running my Dresden Files game I use the I pad to access obsidian portal. There i have all my encounters laid out in the wiki and can quickly add notes about the npcs or other events. having the ipad allows me more room at the table and i have completely ditched the lap top.
I use the iPad mainly for research. It handles WotC's compendium well and I view all my D&D news feeds on it too. In fact, I'm writing this comment on it right now!
The contest is closed now, but you may still comment. 🙂
I didn’t comment when the contest was open since I (sadly) do not own an iPad (YET!), but this looks great. I find myself using a combination of my iPod and my laptop to run my games. I may yet go semi-paperless soon!
