I was emailed a couple of Word documents to read through yesterday. I started to read through them on my Mac, and then I realized that it would be way better to read through them on my iPad with my feet kicked up. But the files were zipped in the email.
So I went ahead and AirDropped the files from my Mac to iPad. That froze Pages for 10 minutes. Then I put the files in iCloud Drive, they still haven’t shown up on my iPad.
And then I put the files in a BitTorrent Sync’d folder, but the BTSync app on my iPad started to crash on launch.
In the end, I just emailed the files to myself and read them, finally, on my iPad.
I would have been done far sooner if I never bothered with the iPad. And that’s the problem with the iPad — or more aptly — with Apple’s software.
