What makes the iPad 2 and keyboard combo so effective for my
writing is the “one app at a time” nature of the tablet. The
running app takes up the entire screen, and thus my focus. There
are no distractions presented while writing, just inputting words
on the screen.
This is liberating for a writer, and I find I can write more, and
better, on the tablet system than on a “real” computer. There
are no menu options competing for my attention, no updates needing
to be run, just an app on the screen.
I’m starting to feel like an old fogey, using a Mac for all my writing.
