Hi, been meaning to weigh in on this thread for some time, I use an iPad 2 and use a Mivizu case (smelt horrible when I first got it but feels great) as I like covers that have 4 sections so they fold easily for hand holding and stand nicely.
I am in Church of England, a reader and the director of music so
Morning service are data projection and I prepare them in word and PDF them and move pages with a Kensington presentation pointer (we use two which don't interfere so someone can zap while I'm playing) for those, I lead from the music stand but preach from the lecturn ( we have a 50's church) and while I use accordance to prepare, I paste my material into the standard notes app that comes on iOS as I can work on it on my phone or MBP. (Rant, ages ago I asked for a more generic notes app in accordance for collecting material rather than the specific verse notes). I then put highlights, images and verses into what I am projecting so use that to prompt while preaching and congregation see it.
Evening service is more informal and purely paper based for congregation so I have my liturgy and collects downloaded from CoE site and I just use adobe but have them in the correct page in my recents. I have my set list in forScore of the songs and hymns with the excellent AirTurn and I have my notes in notes. And I do have accordance open so I can do a quick search in case someone raises an awkward question but most of my notes have been compiled. And so lead the service from a make shift stall with a lowered music stand. Again all the preparation done from accordance into notes. (Rant 2 though get fed up that you can't copy instant details in iOS as it copies the underlying article). I also have resources in Kindle and as PDF and still use some paper resources as well, so notes is a good area to compile things. ( I have used Evernote and Upad in the past but came back to notes).
So in the docking station of my iPad, I have notes, adobe, accordance Safari iTunes and forScore so all my key apps are easy to get to.
Ps. I use my MBP twice a week to prepare my scores and the service and send a draft to whoever is preaching. I use my iPad morning, evening and night and really is my primary tool. ;o)
Pps, I have tried AirDisplay to mirror what is projected onto my iPad but so far run into issues when I try to change apps on my iPad.
