I'm new to iPad, and I'm fixing to buy the Air 3. I have several use scenarios for it, and one of them is for writing long form - a novel (using Apple Smart Keyboard, unless there's a better alternative?). So now comes the issue of apps. The first, most obvious one - why not just use Apple Pages, since it's free and fully supported? Can you write a novel in Pages, or is it not optimal? If there are better app options for longform writing on the ipad, I'm interested - as long as it's not a subscription model (which is a hard "NO" for me, so definitely not f.ex. Ulysses). I've looked over several - including Scrivener for iOS (and sorry, but I'm just not a fan of Scrivener, and can't get over it - too complicated for me). Of the options, I've seen, I'm kind of interested in iA Writer which is quite cheap. But of course, I have no experience with any of these apps, hence my question. So what's your recommendation? Hardware: Smart Keyboard? Apps: Pages? iA Writer? X? TIA!
