KINDLE APP – Whether you have a kindle, iPad, Smart Tablet or phone, on most you can download the Kindle app for your purchases. You will have to buy your books on Amazon and then Amazon will let you download to your Kindle App on any device.
BOOKS – On all of your electronics with the Kindle app you will be able to download your book selection and use it without wifi. So make sure you load up on your favorite author! Or maybe you have purchased some e-travel books! Whatever you have, make sure that you have opened them once while connected to wifi, before you leave. That is how they actually download to your Kindle app.
READ LATER – You can actually save articles to read later on your Kindle App.
MOVIES – Most of the smart tablets now let you download movies to watch later. You don’t have to have a wifi connection. Great for the airplane, or late night in your cabin!
MUSIC- We talked about music on Day 24 with electronics. Music! Bring with a travel speaker and you can listen to all of the music on your tablet or phone! And make your own playlists for the trip. We make a playlist for every port we go to, with music from that country! Nothing like waking up and getting a feel for the culture before you even step off the ship. We have a sunset playlist, a really upbeat playlist, and a romantic evening playlist.
CONFIRMATIONS AND DOCUMENTS- We love to have all of our confirmation’s or documents in a folder on our tablets. Depending on which tablet you are using will depend on where it is kept on the device. For instance, on your iPad it is saved in Ibooks. On a kindle you can email your docs to your Fire and download into DOCS.
WRITING- The other reason we love to have our kindle, iPad or tablet along is to let our creative minds go crazy! We love to write. We love to brainstorm new ideas. We have found that when we are out to sea, away from the chaos and stress of home, business and more, our most creative ideas come to life! You just have to research today what is the app that your tablet needs to scribe your most amazing future dreams!
