TecnhnoBuffalo took up a challenge. One of their writers went on a week’s trip to Europe with just the iPad Pro and Apple Keyboard, instead of a laptop. I will share my opinions of their experience after the video.
Size matters. One of the difficulties of using the iPad whilst travelling was its size. On the plane it was so big it got in the way. Relaxing in bed it was too heavy to hold like you would the iPad Air or Mini. Both these situations affected me.
The flip side was the large screen is superb for media consumption along with the strong battery life. However, more work related stuff does get compromised.
I thought the criticism of the Apple Keyboard was unfair. I found it really fast and operations like going to the home screen can be achieved with simply command key operations. In fact, holding down the command key for a few seconds in every app reveals all the shortcuts. Tweetbot has loads of shortcuts!
As I have said before, the Apple Pro is an excellent piece of hardware, if it fits what you need it to do. One of my favourite iOS app, Reeder, just received a big update, most importantly it now supports the iPad Pro properly. However, this is only the 3rd app I have seen updated since the iPad Pro’s launch that I use that has been specifically updated for the iPad Pro.
