I'm just going to put it out there that I've been writing with this iPad for about three weeks on and off, and driven by significant quantities of coffee over the last two days. I am no longer looking at the keys. In fact, I'm writing this right now with my eyes closed. Mistakes happen, but frankly, this is something of a benefit for me. A long writing project always benefits from editing, and that I'm not QUITE there, with the occasional dropped comma etc, means I get a good excuse to go back to it. LORD forbid what would happen if I get any more used to this. But yeah. I've actually come to prefer writing on my iPad to writing on my MacBook Pro, and nearly (NEARLY) prefer it to writing by hand. Take some time, force yourself to work through the initial toothing pains that are probably inevitable. I had to go through the same process when I went back to fountain pen from ballpoint, and it settled down after a while. Once you get past those opening stages, you find yourself with a beautiful device that does an incredible job when it comes to walking down the street and picking up a project that you were working on at home. It's the 'pick up, play, doodle, correct, work roughly' accessibility of a pen and paper, but with the benefits that come with digital word-smithery. Emailing for example. And readability. But anyway. Yes. One satisfied customer. Hope that helps someone make up their mind somewhere.
