I got the Pro10 Tablet with keyboard. Letting it charge and finding some apps for it. I have already added a couple of diabetes apps. I want to add a carb counter app if I can find one. Got any suggestions.

Sorry I just saw you got the Pro10. I am going to look it up and see if I can find a good price on itl

Mine was $149 plus tax. They had some cheaper ones but the one I got has a 10" screen and a keyboard. It also came with a cover. Around here the covers alone can run from 25 to 50 dollars for the cheaper ones and can go higher for some.

Bre, I hope you got a good buy on it. I have been looking at them and am thinking of getting one when my tax refund comes in. Let me know what kind you got and if you like it, also could you post the apps you have downloaded please.

Congrats on the new toy and thanks.

Good Bre, you are going to love it. I have had an iPad for two years now and I love it. I also have a laptop and a touch computer, but since I finished school last year I use my iPad more often than either of them because I can carry it everywhere I go and there are an abundance of apps available for it. I hope you will enjoy your tablet as much as I enjoy mine.

Good for you Bre
Valentine lady just got me a fire phone. I have a masters degree and still that phone is smarter than me. I think it is malfunctioning anyway

Haha,,, I also got an android phone yesterday. It is the kind that as long as you are looking at it, it won't fade out. Also has the hand swipe feature. I don't have to touch it to wake it up. Not sure how I am going to like that.

I've still got a dumb flip phone. But I am looking to get a smart phone, the kind that has all the health apps: how many steps I take, what my BP is, what my BS is, and whatever else they dream up by the time I have the money to buy one for myself.

wow, cool, congrats. I love my kindle. I used to use it a lot more than i do now, i should start using it more again. I get stuck in front of the laptop and use that now more. I like myfitnesspal as well. you can use that on tablet or phone. it's got a lot of good info. Good luck, Heidi

LilleyHeidi: I too love my Kindle for reading books and have many yet to read that I buy from Amazon at 99 cents each. In fact, when the electricity went off in my neighborhood, I used my Kindle to "light the way."
I use every day to calculate food and exercise. Truth be told, MFP thinks I died since I try not to go over 1000 calories per day and it thinks it is not enough but that is what the doctor told me to do so that I lose weight. I was morbidly obese and now I am just obese after having lost 50 lbs.

I have been wanting a tablet. I keep asking my daughter questions about them. I am so NOT into technology. My daughter keeps referring to my phone as a "dumb" phone. Let us know if you locate some good apps. I can use that as an excuse to finally go buy a tablet. :)

Boy am I jealous. The only tablet that I have is a yellow lined one that I write on in ink.

Doing my happy dance. LOL I may have to wait until my daughter or grandson is here to learn how to use it. I know a little but still need help with some of it.
