Dave has a lively conversation with Joe Kissell to find out if an iPad could be his full time device and could he set his Mac aside. A few things that are reviewed including:

  • Size - what would work best for his work
  • Keyboard - you do need a keyboard especially if you are writing. 
  • File Management - does the new Files App meet the needs
  • External Storage is a big plus now that iPad Pro has USB-C port

His workflow includes many of these programs and could he be without them. He also uses quite a few automation scripts could iOS Shortcuts work for him?

Here are some items he uses.
