I love tech toys, I am not going to lie, so when the Ipad came out I was pretty stoked about getting one for no real reason at all. Then Greg Surratt started using it for preaching and an elegant solution in search of a problem found a reason to exist. I currently use my Ipad for most of my consumption (including reading on the Kindle app) but I know with technology changes that too could change. I am a fickle user of gadgets. But for preaching I have found the best solution to several problems:
1. Ready to preach in season and out. With the combination of wifi (or 3G) + Google docs + Ipad I am ready to preach one of dozens of sermons at any point.
2. I can read my changes. In the past I have preached from printed notes and then made lots and lots of hand-written changes on the notes through the course of the sermon. Now when I make those changes they are immediately updated to my document. No illegible notes or scribbles.
3. Access to the Bible in multiple translations. Ever thought of a verse on the fly that you would like to read but are pretty sure that your reciting of the verse by memory may have broken Revelation 22:18 in the process. Now you have the Bible, quickly searchable in multiple translations with you notes thanks to the youversion app.
