You may have noticed some changes here recently. Here’s a hint: fresh content! Want to know my secret? The Poster app! Now I know we’ve all heard that the iPad is not a content-creation device, but I’m finding it pretty easy myself. In fact, I haven’t reopened my MacBook once, not even to change my blog theme!
Why do I like it so much? It doesn’t try to do anything more than allow you to draft, schedule and publish content. I don’t need a reader baked into the app, or to see stats on my personal blog. I just want to dive in and bang out 250–500 words about something I liked enough to write about. Like Poster! If you want to start using your iPad for blogging, you should check it out.
I know I’m the last person on Earth to admit this, but I’m in love with the iPad. Strike that: I’m in love with my wife’s iPad, which I gifted her two years ago. At first i thought my iPhone was all I needed. I started playing with it Thursday night and now it’s on my lap nonstop. I’m writing this post on it!
Favorite app? Currently obssessed with Flipboard. Really changes the way I engage my feeds and browse the web. It’s fun again!
What am I looking forward to? Reading. I’m desperate to embrace digital books because I can’t shoehorn another in our modest home. Hope this screen is addictive for reading as it is everything else.
If you have an iPad and are a fan, let me know what your favorite apps are in the comments!
