Attention all iPad users out there! Here is a question for you: Are you using your iPad as a ‘work’ machine? Do you do actual work with apps? For instance: There is a Word Press app for bloggers. Are you using it? What about writing in general… do you use an app like Pages? There are apps for creating illustrations, and apps for making music. Suffice it to say that there are apps for doing whatever ‘work’ it is you do.
Perhaps you use your iPad solely for entertainment purposes or online socializing. Do you watch movies on it? What about social? Do you use Facebook or Twitter on your iPad? Are you a reader? Obviously you are or you would not be reading this blog. Do you use your iPad as an e-reader? I use Kobo for reading. (However, I love my Kindle so it trumps the iPad for reading books.)
I use my iPad for almost everything. I can use Pages for writing and then export in a Word document format. I can create artwork / illustrations and email them to myself so I can edit them in apps I have on my MacBook Air. Between my iPad and my Air I have all the apps I need to do everything I want / need to do. My iPad definitely plays a major ‘work’ role for me.
I will have to say that with the exception of when first received my iPad I have never used the onboard camera. It’s not a convenient form factor. I have my phone with me everywhere I go so I use that camera. Is it as nice as my iPad camera? Most definitely not. But it is as close as reaching in to my pocket and that’s what counts. Photos on demand… Yes. I have a Droid currently. That may change when the new iPhone comes out later this year. That would save me a lot of work with photos. Having all my devices playing well together… priceless!
So what do you use for iPad for? Is it just a ‘luxury’ that you use occasionally? Do you use yours for something else I have not mentioned?
