The iPad pro and my future workflow

Yesterday I spent some time in my local Apple store and I had the opportunity to pick up and play with the new iPad Pro. The short version is: I’m *totally* sold. Although it is larger than I thought it would be, it is also much lighter than I expected.

I use tech to get my work done (rather than for entertainment) and it’s rare that I read something online where I don’t want to take notes or in some other way record my thinking about the topic. The smaller iPads have always been too fiddly (at least to my mind) to do this effectively.

If the iPad version of Papers for Mac works as advertised, then the workflow of: Papers>Byword>Wordpress will suddenly become a whole much easier. I can see myself sitting in a beanbag, Apple Pencil in hand, marking up articles, converting them to useful notes and publishing directly to my Quotes and Notes page all on one device and in one sitting.

I can’t wait to get my hands on an iPad Pro. I think it’ll be a game changer for my work.
