Three years ago I spent a frustrating few months attempting to transition some of what I do on a Mac to an iPad.
Frustrating because every time I tried to do anything more than a few lines of text editing using a hardware keyboard, the resulting experience had me wanting to throw the iPad at the nearest wall.
It seemed impossible in all but a couple of apps to select or navigate by paragraph. Line navigation and selection was better, but still quite often unreliable.
These seem like basic use cases, and ones that work just fine on my Mac. It seemed crazy to find that I couldn't do something as simple as selecting a paragraph of text that I wanted to copy.
The new iPad Air has me tempted to give it another chance.
I occasionally see people mention on here how they are happily using an iPad with a hardware keyboard. Does this mean that things have improved over the past couple of years? Is it now possible to edit large text files in the same way as it is on Mac?
I would love to hear people's experiences before I potentially waste money again on an iPad.
I would be looking at using apps such as IA Writer, 1Writer, or Drafts.
Thanks for your experiences and thoughts ☺️
