So I upgraded to the 12.9 iPad Pro two months ago and purchased the Apple Pencil as well. This combination of devices has made it a pretty great replacement for 90% of what I do the other 10% is why I’m keeping my 11inch Macbook Air around.
But let me tell you the Pro has a much better screen and can do somethings faster then my Air ever could. I’m mainly using this device for school so lots of Word and Web browsing usage and PowerPoint/Keynote for my courses. But I do use this for work as well which means even more Word and Web browsing but also Excel.
This device is great for fun as well which it’s great screen and speakers make great for video watching and photo editing and even 4k video editing.
Well I’ve had the iPad 1 for awhile now and all I have to say is that it is amazing.
What I mainly do with it is media consumption such as watch Netflix, read things from Flipboard, and the NyTimes App. As while I do lots of web surfing and watching of podcasts from live.twit.tv and Revision3. But what I mainly do is read lots of books through the kindle app.
Right now I’m reading the song of ice and fire series and it is amazing and really good on the iPad. What makes it amazing is Amazon prices of kindle books but also their wide selection and avaiabltity of books. Also the fact that they more often than not have the entire series of books in a series. For example I’m on book two of the series and all I a have to do is going to the kindle store through the app and buy the next book. But not only that the kindle app is on almost every device to your entire book collection is there for you to read but is also synced to were you left off on other devices. Finally you can also pre order books so that they day they come out it just gets download to your kindle app.
So overall this is a great consumption device and is an amazing piece of technology.
I can not wait for the iPad to launch here in Canada it looks so amazing and cool. Lots of good look iPad apps available now. It well be so cool when and if Apple and various publishers can work out subscriptions to them and then I would be set. Also I can not wait for the iBook store to launch as well.
