Some say, avtually quite a lot of people 🙂 that the iPad is only for reading and consuming on-line data. I agree, its a great tool for all of that, not to mention all graphical interfaces for location-based services,
But – I think it’s great tool for prodiåutivity as well! As a writer I regularly get into writers blocking. Procrastinating, low on energy are common states when this occurs. Part of the blocking being expectations and demands, the iPad comes in handy.
To my brain, it speaks another language in creating: while the Mac says “come on, be productive! These are office hours! The iPad’s like that kid screaming “come play!”
And that’s exactly what I do to release my blockings.
Write: either a plan email that I addreas to my Evernote folder.
Sketches: simpler ones – Drawing Pad – finer in details- Paper
Video: built in camera – or Movie360 – preferably using the Sketch filter
