iPad Test

August 1, 2010 · 3 comments

It seemed like a good idea.

We have a great camera.

We have a blog.

We have a lot of time in the car, and there’s finally a mobile gadget that you can (sort of) type on like a real keyboard. Plus, there is both a Word Press app and a decent great photo editing app available for said gadget, so we should be all set!

In theory, this means that we should be able to easily blog from anywhere there’s a decent internet connection, right?

Blog? Yes. I did create this post entirely on the iPad: photo editing, writing, posting and all.

Easy? No. It took a LOT of trial and and even more errors, and I believe I seriously injured my patience portal in the process. And apparently, we aren’t the only ones struggling.

However, if learning new things and stretching your brain keeps you young, then I take comfort in knowing I just turned the odometer back a full ten years.

So thanks to Apple and Word Press, I’m now younger, and smarter, but also slightly less likely to be easy to get along with than I was two hours ago.
Halloo… Word Press? Can we get a little help here?

P.S. I can’t figure out how to add links from here, but once I get to my Mondo Mac, I’ll point you to some helpful pages.
P.P.S. Did I mention I’m a little bit cranky now?

And, back in front of the home Mac again. I’ve gone back in to the post and added a couple of links that might be of use.

Nice job. Did you have occasion to show anyone “what’s on your iPad” while writing this post? Is the iPad any good for show-and-tell to those around you?

Well for your first iPad test, you did quite well. Is that Mr. Whiskers at the bottom? 🙂 Cute pooch.
