Day one of the iPad swap I found it challenging to say the least. Many moments of going for my laptop in automatic mode, then a quick slap of my hand quickly reminding myself NO LAPTOP! :)I thought it a good idea to post the apps I have installed on this journey. This list is in no particular order, essentially installing the App for the job as it presented itself. From the outset I want to say that I am a standard App user, I usually don’t use another app for Mail or the Calendar etc. I know that many people may find more interesting and better options of these types of Apps. For my use I generally use the standard App (unless it is an exceptional difference).
- Updated Pages, Numbers, Keynote etc
- Chrome – (Living in Japan – my banking etc are in Japenese so I need an automatic translation of websites)
- iCloud Drive
- Google Docs, Drive etc
- Penultimate (Seriously great note taking on the iPad pro with the Pencil!)
- PDF Expert
- iTunes U
I did install some other Apps, these are ones that are used in classes for teaching (using the iPads) so I really don’t consider them apart of this experiment as I would have used my iPad in that situation anyway.
Can I say, having a full sized keyboard on the iPad pro is GREAT!
