‘Why I’m writing on the iPad’

Jason Snell writing about, well, writing (on his iPad):

Using the iPad slowed me down and got me to think about what I was writing in a way that using my trusty MacBook Air never would.

That perfectly encapsulates a feeling that I have been getting from my iPad too. I use iA Writer on both my Mac and iPad. Both are full screen — both then show the same amount of distractions (none). Yet I much prefer working on the iPad with the on screen keyboard.

I never knew why until Snell wrote his article today.

While the iPad is slower, and can be frustrating to edit with, I find that my words are more considered on the iPad. Yes, it’s all psychological, but that doesn’t make such a sentiment any less true.

I’m with Snell on this one: I think that I need to write on my iPad when I want to take a more considered approach to things.
