I've had an iPad for three years now. In those three years, I have used my iPad mainly for consuming content ( browsing, facebook, twitter, other social networks ). I have tried to use it to do some work (mainly blogging) or editing photos. It's great for editing photos. Most of the apps for photo editing do a very good job ( Filterstorm, iPhoto, Aviary ). The problem is when you have to type an article. I find it very difficult to type fast using the device keyboard. I bought keyboards before - which used a rubberized material. I didn't like them because they were not that sensitive and I end up with numerous typo errors because of those keyboards. So I finally decided to get the Apple bluetooth keyboard. It's been great so far. This blog entry was edited using the keyboard. BTW - I've been thinking of getting a Windows Surface Pro - precisely for the attachable keyboard. I decided not to do that and set me back for over 1,000 USD. With this keyboard for less than 100 USD --- I get what I was looking for using my existing iPad.
