Three days of the iPad

As I’m spending three days in Bournemouth, thought it would be a good opportunity to see how well I could survive without a laptop – I’m only taking my iPad and a charging cable, so no laptop, laptop power brick, portable hard disk for backups, books etc.

I’m currently rewriting my research plan for my Phd for the next two years, so it’s sitting in Pages for the iPad, waiting for some work. These postings are being made through the iPad WordPress app which has a pretty clean interface. As an experiment i’m going to try and include an image of the WordPress app icon and the Photoforge app. Used the two button screen grab technique on the iPad to capture the screen and then cropped it in Photoforge.

One of the issues with the current iPad OS is the limited multi tasking. Fast app switching (like on iOS 4 ) will help here – I would like to be able to quickly switch between Papers (where I keep my journal articles), Pages (the iPad editor) and MindMeister which is excellent mind mapping app which I use for planning lectures, document structures and notes on journal articles.
