Thoughts on the iPad as a writing Tool

    So, I got an iPad for Christmas. I have been using it like crazy for the past couple of days, but this is is my first time writing a post on the device. I’m not using an external keyboard, so this is the full-blown experience.

    The main problem that I run into is actually doing the WordPress tomfoolery needed to make the posts look right. There is an official WordPress app, but the media interaction leaves much to be desired.

    Manipulating media on the web interface is fine, but I can’t seem to upload anything to the server. Sadly, that is something that I really need.

    I can type really fast on iOS devices, but that might not be true for everyone. I can understand that a physical keyboard is important to a lot of people, but it just doesn’t bother me in the least. I can write first drafts of everything right there on my iPad, and I wouldn’t notice any considerable slowdown.

    Now I want to hear from you. Do you type long form content on your iPad? Is it worth it to get the keyboard dock or a Bluetooth keyboard? Let me know by leaving a comment on this post.
