The problem with new iPad models coming out every year is that shelling out a wad of cash for an expensive accessory lasts you a few months before the next model comes out. When you upgrade every year or even every other year, you are left with otherwise useful accessories gathering dust. However, with a little creativity, you can still maximize your old accessories and use them for your newer toys. Read on after the break!
Since I got my first iPad in 2010, I have been ambivalent about buying a separate wireless/bluetooth keyboard to be able to use it. I’ve since taught myself to use the iPad itself for long periods of typing – but the accuracy of touchscreen typing leaves a lot to be desired, especially if you have auto-correct turned on.
When I first heard of the Adonit Writer Plus keyboard, I couldn’t resist giving it a try, and the $100 pricetag, intimidating as it is, turned out to be worth it. I simply knew Adonit as a good brand for iPhone/iPad accessories, and I am a big fan of their beautiful Jot stylus. The finishing, quality and attention to detail are to me, very, Apple-like. Having learned of this award-winning bluetooth keyboard with case for the iPad, I decided to check it out for myself. Here are my thoughts on Adonit Writer Plus:
Steve Jobs believed that all you need are your fingers to take notes on your iPad, but experience will tell you otherwise.
When I got my very first iPad, I immediately looked for a stylus to pair it with and I have been looking ever since. Here are some of my lessons learned. The first part of this series is about my search for a stylus that works for me, and some lessons I can impart from the experience. Just a disclaimer, I have not tried all of the major brands in the market (e.g. Pogo, Dagi, et al.), just the ones that are locally available or given to me as a gift.
