Laptop Killer or Space Filler: Can an Author Write a Book on the iPad?, article.
And another article on pad writing.
The consensus, counting my own researches, is that the iPad is perfectly capable of being a fine writing tool, only that if you are used to touch-typing, the compact and attractive Apple bluetooth keyboard is a great idea.
And that the next OS with multitasking will help.
And the big one: we simple need a few good apps for writing, made for the iPad. Including some simple ones for just raw writing.
Apple's Pages app is not bad, but it's more for page layout and it is for amateurs, for instance it does not have a word count.
My Writing Nook is also not bad, but so far it does not have any undo function. (I talked to the author, and he has taken my suggestion to heart of making one.)
We already have thousands of friggin games for the pad, let's get some useful software, please guys. :-)
If (when!) I've made a typo when posting, I've never been aware of an edit function to allow me to correct it, so how come an author can apparently entirely remove a post?
Am I missing something?
