    I really dislike Apple products, so I'm probably biased, lol.

    I will note that there are grants, etc that provide iPads to schools and, I'm sure, therapy organizations. So that might be why she's using one.

    My husband has an Android tablet. We have apps with flashcards, etc for Clive as well as little kid games for him. I don't use it that often, but find it easy to use. (about the same as my phone, which is also Android, lol)

    I know people with iPads, and they seem to have the same apps I'm able to get.

    So, I'd probably go by cost factor.

    I am posting from a rooted Nook tablet. It's quite powerful for the price. Since it's rooted I'm not stuck with just the limited B&N apps, as I also loaded both Google Play and the Amazon All Store. I read Kindle books on my Nook. All I'm missing is a camera!

    Yep. And Netflix on mine as well. Depending on the wifi connection, the video is smooth and fast. If the wifi sucks though, there's no 3G to fall back on.

    I am absolutely biased against iOS and Win. I have been Win free at home for more then 3 years now.

    I will never pay the dumb tax to Apple for an inferior product.
