It's been a few days since launch. I've had some real life experiences with my iPad Pro 9.7", and it has been getting better and better. I am coming from an iPad Air 2 and had no problems with it at all, I enjoyed it a lot. I have also had most generation iPads and have mainly used them as consumption devices. To me, they have always given some kind of upgrade to each generation that made it worth it to upgrade. In this case it was the Apple Pencil capability for a high value for me. Launch day Thursday morning, I ordered it for in store pickup in Space Gray 256gb, Cellular, Applecare+, the dark gray silicon Case and Cover, the Apple Pencil, and a USB-C to lightning cable. I went in before work, showed my ID, unboxed everything in the car, and restored the initial content to get it running. I have a Waterfield Designs Slipcase I used for the Air 2, with the Case and Cover, it's a little snug, but works how I need it to. It has a front pocket perfect for the Apple Pencil. I also bought some utility pencils and used the clip from one on the Apple Pencil to keep it from sliding out. I am not an artist, I am in Sales. I take notes at all of my meetings, and too often go nuts trying to find something I wrote down like a phone number or dollar amount. By the end of the week I have these notes all over the place and it is very hard to organize. I could type them out on the iPad or iPhone, and tried it once, it was awkward, so I stuck with the pen and paper until now. I downloaded Goodnotes and PDF Expert and am synching them to iCloud and Dropbox. I got an email from HR the other day with some PDF's to sign. It was great, I opened them up, signed, saved, and sent in seconds. Goodnotes has notebooks I can create, so I have one specifically for work with lined paper style and have been using that this week. I also have another for photo editing, and look forward to creating notebooks for each active account I am working on to keep everything organized. I really like the feature of adding logos or artwork to these created notebooks. So day 1 that afternoon I had a sales meeting, took notes during the meeting followed by a sales presentation later in the day. I was able to show some before and after examples of my product, plus a video of our application. I could do this on my previous iPads too of course, but once again that pencil came out and the client started asking questions about it which added a little rapport during my presentation. The great thing is when filling out info for an evaluation I will be performing, I am able to write the info in the lines and spaces rather than hunting and pecking to type in the line or box or tabbing down or moving the cursor to the precise spot and hitting the spot above or below can be annoying. That night, I got home and utilized the 256 gb of space moving over my usual content, but now instead of swapping videos in and out, I can have them when I need them along with my entire music collection and all apps with plenty of space to spare. I loaded some content into the Photo Editing notebook I created and had a little fun editing some photos, and played around with some drawing. I was using it a lot, but it lasted me all day. Now I can plug the cable into the same brick I charge my Macbook with and fast charge it when I need to, if I need to. This week I will be creating some templates for my presentations that I can use for Q&A's to make it even easier to fill in content for my evals. 2 weekdays, and a weekend, and I feel like I have found paper and pen all over again. I am finding this to be precisely what Steve Jobs described it to be on the very 1st iPad announcement....a perfect in between device. I am thinking I may get the keyboard at some point, but right now the virtual keyboard works fine for me. I'm curious what other members are using, and plan to use theirs for. I always like threads like these, I always find new ideas on uses that I never thought of.
