It works!!!

You know for all of the threads stating apple is behind, not innovating, blah blah etc... (not saying I disagree) but today I decided to take my iPad Pro 12.9 to a meeting. It was a meeting with slides. So I’m jamming on the onscreen keyboard trying to type. Then there’s slides I needed to take notes. I couldn’t type fast enough and eureka!!!!! Took out my xr, snap a pic, airdrop it to the iPad. Attached it to the notes app. Amazing! I could do it all in 30 second!!!

I needed this tech in grad school! I kept doing this in the meeting, taking a pic on the slide and using the notes app to important the pic and take notes. I didn’t bring my pencil so I’m curious how that would add to this but it was great! It was so easy!!

snap a pic, crop the slides, airdrop. Insert pic in notes and keep jamming away.

I can’t wait to bring this to the conference next month!!

So for all the bells and whistles the competition may have my question is will all of those get you to work faster and more efficient?

I just use my Note 9 that's all. Use the stylus to jot (or type) in Samsung Notes app. Snap a pic and it is automatically inserted in the note. I can crop and annotate the image. At the same time insert and start recording an audio in the note while continuing to type and jot.

I do the same in Notability but on my iPad. Wish that Apple had included Pencil capability on their phones.

Yeah but how do you send the photo to your iPad ;)
I use iCloud Photo Library so it would automatically appear on my iPad when I opened the photos app.

As someone who owns 2 iPads and a Mac and an Apple TV I know it would bug me if I had an android phone not playing with my other devices.

What bugs me with cloud workaround is when I'm taking notes, I just want to snap and insert image into the note without leaving any trace of the image in Photo/Gallery
