This is NOT another iPad as laptop replacement thread! I never want to read another of those threads. To me, desktops/laptops and iPads are different tools and can't replace each other anyway. I still use a laptop but as technology and the software relevant to my work improve I am using iPads more and laptop less. This thread is about using iPads for more than basic consumption. I'm interested in learning from others who are using iPads for their job or business, for creative work, or even if not for work but to run their lives ... how you use it, how you overcome limitations of IOS or iPad versions of Mac software, how it has improved your workflow. My intention here is positive, to share constructive information/experience as well as questions. I hope that people who dismiss the iPad as a toy because it isn't a laptop will stay away in droves or at least will refrain from explaining endlessly that until an iPad has everything a laptop has it can't be used for real work. I am a writer and musician, though mostly writing now. I use 2 iPads for almost everything - a wifi 12.9 for most of my work and play, though also with Duet as second screen on MBPr sometimes, also with IPad AIR2, which is cellular and goes almost everywhere with me. I use Apple Pencil with Notability for handwriting notes, IA Writer for typing, Dropbox and iCloud for storage. I did get Scrivener for iPad as I use that on laptop, but haven't yet been able to sort out file storage issue with Dropbox and so haven't used it yet, and I love the simplicity of IA Writer and its excellent Dropbox connection, and can open these files in Scrivener on laptop when I need to use different formats etc. I'm also learning drawing, painting on iPad, using Procreate and have just got Affinity for iPad. I have written music on iPads using GarageBand, but at present do prefer laptop for that with 24 inch external screen. I use iPads for all office stuff, banking, communications, scanning, research, study (learning lots of things not directly for work). Print through the laptop as I haven't got an Air printer yet. Still use laptop for iPad backups, putting movies, music on them, storing photos and backing up work on hard drives as I don't totally trust cloud, but I will soon look into getting wifi hard drive for iPads. Major differences in using iPads more ... major health improvement with back issue, much less sitting, I only sit at a desk for writing, all reading of my work, research, some office work I can lay down with iPad, something I would never do with laptop. Mobility .... with cellular iPad I always have internet when out and don't have to rely on public wifi. Not having a "proper" file system isn't a major issue using Dropbox. I much prefer touch screen to mouse or trackpad. I can write anywhere, with a keys To Go keyboard and lightweight stand in an STM bag that fits both iPads, Apple Pencil, and chargers, compact and easy to carry. Battery life is great. So I do still use laptop for quite a few things but mostly because it is there and I haven't had to find iPad solutions for those things, but I am interested in hearing about them as I probably won't replace my laptop when it dies.
