Hi Zachary

That is kind of what I do too.  What my U2 Mini doesn't allow me to do
efficiently, my iPhone does.

Kind Regards,

Jackie Brown

Yes, it would be a great idea, but for music, I do not want to buy music
using Itunes.  I have a huge collection of music on my Apex and on my Sd
card, so, I don't want to lose all of that just for getting an Ipad and a
VarioUltra; that's why I would get the Braille Sense, for music, YouTube,
and notetaking functions like that.  The Ipad would be used and mweb
browsing, the stuff I can't do on the Braille Sense.

Also I'd save money and not buy a Braille Sense.  The Vario Ultra from Baum
would be cheaper.  It could be used as a note taker in meetings yet it
could be paired with a smartphone.  Only disadvantage is you don't get
speech while taking notes.  The keyboard on the Vario Ultra is odd but
feedback seems to be that people get used to it.

Cheers

They will each deliver somewhat  different experiences.  I?™m slightly
cautious in what I say because I?™m still getting to 
know the BN Touch.    And I haven?™t yet got to the point where 
I?™m trying apps such as Facebook and Twitter on it.  You wouldn?™t be able
to send texts from the Touch.  However, I?™ve been surprised at the
accuracy of Braille I?™m able to produce on the touch screen.  It will also
depend a bit on how familiar and happy you are with keysoft.  Sorry this is
rather inconclusive and a bit all over the place.

 Hello.  I am thinking about buying a notetaker, and I am still stuck
between the Braille Sense U2 Mini plus an Ipad, or the BrailleNote Touch.
Any opinions and comments are appreciated.
 Thanks,
 Zachary Morris
