2012 ASHA Convention

blogEntryThumbnailI will be participating in the ASHA Convention scheduled for November 15-17, 2012 in Atlanta, Georgia. If you’re attending the conference, come see me at booth #1319 to learn about the latest (and upcoming) features in my apps (StoryPals, ArtikPix, PhonoPix, and Percentally) and enter to win prizes.

At the booth, you will be able to get StoryPals and ArtikPix stickers for the chance to win iTunes cards. You’ll just need to put on the stickers, then my staff or I will give out $10 iTunes cards to three people wearing the stickers each day during the convention.

You will also want to visit the booth because you can enter to win an iPad mini (16 GB) and iTunes codes. You will need to make sure that you enter before the giveaway is announced on Saturday, November 17 at 1 PM, and you must be present at the giveaway to be eligible to win.

Aside from the booth, you can attend my session titled Triple A for iPad: Apps, Accessibility, and Accessories, which is being held on Saturday, November 17 from 9:30 am – 10:30 am in Omni/Omni Ballroom F. I hope to see you there!

iPad mini vs. 3rd generation iPad

Yesterday, my pre-ordered iPad Mini was delivered to our house. I wasn’t sure how much I would like it and immediately wanted to compare it to my existing 3rd generation iPad. I was pleasantly surprised with how well the iPad mini stacked up to its bigger counterpart, particularly in terms of speed and performance. See below for a video of side-by-side tests with the two devices.
