First Review on My iPad
I started using an iPad instead of a second laptop for more effective use. Although it is excellent for reading things, answering emails, checking tasks, it is still not possible to use as a laptop with these devices.
So I tried to connect to my primary PC remotely. But this was not satisfactory for me either. I took some notes to compare when iOS 13 and some updates came.
- In tablet mode, all screens are full-sized automatically.
- The density of UI components is more comfortable to manage cursor with touching.
- Firefox has a tablet mode; it supports touch scrolling, easy to click bookmarks.
- The virtual keyboard is great! I didn’t need to use the iPad’s native on-screen keyboard.
- We can’t see the running apps in the taskbar in tablet mode, but it’s possible to use the gestures to show all running apps.
- You need a remote desktop or a server. It’s impossible to work offline.
- If you decide to use a remote desktop and you are obsessed about fonts, there’s no way to fix screen quality.
- I’m not sure that I can code with iPad for hours even I have a good physical keyboard.
- With the new updates in macOS and iOS 13, it will be possible to run iPad applications on macOS. So iPadOS may affect the quality and variety of applications.
- I’m still waiting for a new version of Microsoft Surface or Surface Go that using ARM CPU, has Thunderbolt 3 and USB-C ports.
- I still didn’t investigate how Google Pixelbook is but seems a good alternative.
