The iPad Pro Only Diaries, Day Four: We Have a Multimedia Monster!

It was a relatively quiet fourth day in terms of work on the iPad Pro (hey, we writers have our quiet days, especially towards the end of the year), which meant that I could mess around with one of the features that is supposed to be a key selling point of the biggest iPad of ’em all – multimedia. So, […]

The iPad Pro Only Diaries Day 3: Cometh the USB drive… and the Pencil!

“You will find all the information, background data and pictures and also some videos in this.” With those words, a young PR executive pretty much brought the high-flying iPad Pro crashing down from divinity to more more mortal territory.

While Safari will let you download files, there are some problems with […]

The iPad Pro Only Diaries Day 2: Multi-tasking Joys and Siri Blues!

Day Two of the “iPad Pro Only” was a busy one. There were a few meetings, interspersed with writing, and well, even a bit of image tweaking. In short, leaving aside media events (which do tend to take place from time to time), this was a slightly more typical day in this writer’s life – meet people, talk, browse, write, […]

Use Truecaller’s Notification Center Widget on Your iPhone to Quickly Lookup Numbers

Almost every Android user I know actively uses Truecaller (or Truedialer). Almost every iPhone user I know… doesn’t. Truecaller on Android can do crazy helpful things like identifying who’s calling while they’re calling you, popup contact details when you copy a number and more.

The iPad Pro Only Diaries, Day 1: Why am I Doing This…and What I Did?

When I told people that I would be spending the rest of 2015 using only an iPad Pro, ditching my trusty notebook (it’s not THAT long a period, really – just about half a dozen days), their first reaction was “why?”. And with good reason. After all, the iPad Pro is not really positioned as a notebook killer, more as […]
