Warning: Long rant from a disappointed machead. I admit that I was really excited about the iPad when I first got it and it was something new and fun. But for me it seems like the interest has completely vanished recently. My main problem is the lack of good or interesting apps. The majority of good apps that I have on my iPad are simply ports of successful apps from the iPhone (Plants vs Zombie, Reeder, Epicurious). The majority of these apps don't give any functionality beyond what the iPhone provides. -Plants vs Zombies is just an expensive version of the game. -NY Times actually provides LESS content on the iPad than iPhone -Things is not different at all from the iPhone app. -ESPN SportsCenter is a PAYED app and the UI is awful. -Netflix is just a slow version of the website. Not exactly finger friendly. -Office^2 has a nightmarish UI. Too many apps using the Mail landscape layout. -Magazine apps (I'm looking at you Wired) are interesting, but too damn expensive. The vast majority of apps on my iPad are launch day apps. The only thing I downloaded in the past month was Reeder. I was willing to be patient, considering it takes time to develop and market apps, but it's already been exactly 3 months, we breached 10,000 native apps in the store, and there's still nothing too interesting. If anything, I actually started using my iPhone more than ever, since it's way more mobile and convenient than carrying around my iPad. Not to mention that things like facebook and twitter work way better on the iPhone than the iPad. The media seems to be immune to this sentiment. Every day I keep hearing tech/mac media talking about how the iPad is a massive success and the best thing on earth since porn. In the middle of this, having difficulty finding interest in this thing, I have to question whether people aren't criticizing the iPad because it's really so good and i'm missing something crucial, or because it's an apple product and it's become flavor of the month for the media to lick apple's boots? Thoughts? Anybody else almost never using their iPad recently? I know I'm not the only one, since a recent retweet from First and 20 was along the same thought process, but I'm wondering how many of us are there. Sent from my Desktop. because writing this on the iPad would be stupid slow.
