Tired of trying to find an iPad 2 six weeks after its launch? Now, a new iPhone/iPod touch app makes finding a second-generation tablet as easy as typing a few numbers into your iDevice. Created by D.L. Orton, the FindOne app has one purpose in mind: to help you find a place to buy an iPad 2. Limited to checking current inventories at Target and Walmart stores, the app looks for iPad 2 models according to zip codes. Searches are narrowed by Wi-Fi or 3G (AT&T or Verizon), color, and storage capacity. Once a criteria is selected, the app presents links only to those locations that currently have the model of your choosing, along with the distance to the store from your location. Best of all, each listing includes address, phone, and hours of operation information for each store. The app is a great way to find an iPad 2 and hopefully, it will soon include inventory from other vendors such as Best Buy and Toys “R” Us. The FindOne app is available in the App Store. What to you think? Leave your comments below.
