Looking for data or what? I have dumped a bunch of my load data and charts into PDF for electronic access, in addition to which companies like Lee, Ramshot, etc provide their loading info in PDF format. I use DropBox as a simple way to sync data from my MacBook to my iPad, which if you've used it yet is a free service that is just awesome for this purpose.

Then on the iPad side, in addition to DropBox I also use GoodReader which is an exceptional way to read documents on the iPad. It even allows you to annotations on documents, which is great for load data because I can mark the charts and make notes to myself. I also use Evernote on both iPad and MacBook as a way to save load recommendations from places like this forum, and then I am using Noteshelf on the iPad right now to keep records for myself of what I've loaded and what components I have and/or need.

Hope that helps, but if you're looking for something else more specific let me know and I might have some other app recommendations.

I don't, but I sure wish "they" would make a version of QuickLoad for the iPad.

While Quickload for the ipad would be interesting. I would rather they put more powders in the database.

Just thinking out loud. Doesn't the Ipad have a windows emulator? I run quickload on my old laptop (now dedicated to the reloading bench) with a version of Ubuntu loaded up. The emulator works quite well with quickload.

No, no Windoze emulator. You can use the iPad to access windows that's running on a computer though. The problem is, if I had an iPad that could run Windoze, I wouldn't need another computer.... and I only need Windoze so I can run QuickLoad, so an iPad than ran QuickLoad would be the ultimate solution.
