Re: replace laptop with an iPad?
Hi:toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I believe you can. Some apps will force you to store downloads inside that particular app, but many apps allow you to move downloads from one app to another.
As for using an iPad as an alternative to the traditional laptop, this is what I've heard and read:
According to most of the articles I've read and most of the YouTube videos I've seen on this topic, the iPad can be used as an alternative to the traditional laptop. However, you must be willing to adjust to iOS and stop expecting it to behave like Windows or Mac OS. They say that you must be willing to use some apps that are different from the ones you've been used to using on Windows or the Mac until those apps are developed for iOS. More and more of the apps are being developed for iOS on a regular basis. There are rumors that the Logic music production app and the Final Cut Pro video production app will come to iPad OS soon which will make the iPad an even more viable alternative to the traditional laptop.
Most seem to believe that Apple's new Magic keyboard and bluetooth keyboards make the IPad more viable and attractive. Mouse support helps too.
Even those who claim that the iPad isn't a laptop alternative say that it probably will be soon. They just want to see a few improvements made.
It's worth noting that many Mac users have been upset with Apple because they believe that the company has been putting more resources into the development of the i'Pad than it has into the development of the Mac. But with the release of the new MacBooks, they might be happier now.
Personally, VoiceOver for the iPhone and the iPad has been wonderful! Like all screen readers, it has a few quirks. However, I like VoiceOver for iOS and Mac better than JAWS and NVDA. I think VoiceOver for IOS is better than VoiceOver for Mac, JAWS and NVDA. I find it very easy to swipe, tap and access items using the rotar.
I might decide to buy a MacBook Pro instead of an iPad Pro if I decide that a MacBook Pro will better meet my needs and desires. But I doubt I'll ever return to Windows as my primary operating system. I've had three laptops become disabled by viruses, malware and spyware. I've also had applications become disabled by bad Windows updates. I haven't any of those problems with iOS. I did have a problem downloading an update to the Mac and I needed expert help fixing that. I guess that's one of the reasons why I prefer the iPad as a laptop alternative.
Anyway, it's really all abou′ personal experience and personal preference. For every person who prefers the traditional laptop, there's probably one person who prefers the iPad. At least that's how it seems from everything I've read and seen.
