4 Tips to Make iPad More Useful
With many default apps already present on the iPad, how can you make it even better? Here are 4 easy ways to add productivity to your iPad:

Or you can try QuickVoice to record audio clips and email them. QuickVoice Pro is available for $2.99 and can handle larger loads. For even more features, use GarageBand for $4.99. Though it is famous for instruments, you can podcast from it as well.
