    Hi there i am kavin, its my first occasion to commenting anywhere, when i read this paragraph i thought i could also make comment due to this good paragraph.

    • there are always first times. thanks for leaving your first comment here.

  • Your “like” brought me to your web site. Thanks! Love the cleaning tip. I’m also going to be using your game recommendations when I take a 20 hour flight with my toddler and four-year-old. The iPad might prove to be my salvation on that journey.

      Thanks Anjali! Good luck with your flight. We are going to have a long flight too. I am preparing my iPAD for the trip right now. I am so happy we have the iPAD now, it will save so much space in the carry-on backpack, now that everything is on one device.

  • This is a great post. Every evening when the 3 year old has to surrender the iPad back to Grandma, I look at it and groan. I really do want my own … oh, ya, this one is mine. Off to find a soft damp cloth!

    • Good luck! If it still does not clean, consider a screen protector. 😉

  • Thank you, I really needed these tips. I’m the guilty one of not keeping it clean 😉

    • It is easier to tell others what to do. 🙂 I wrote it as a reminder for myself too.
