Using an Apple iPad with a Synology NAS – 12 suggested Apps

As the Apple iPad has evolved, it has become something nearly as powerful as a traditional laptop. So in this new series of videos, we are going to see how feasible it is to use an Apple iPad with a Synology NAS.

While the experience of using an iPad, will not be exactly the same as that of a full computer. We think that where needed we should at least be able to come up with viable workaround. So for our first video, we are going to run through 12 applications (or suite of applications) that we think will be most useful when trying to use an iPad on your home network and a fully configured Synology NAS.
