Does the iPad make sense as a computer now?

  • čas přidán 6. 06. 2019
  • At WWDC 2019, Apple introduced iPadOS, which has all-new ways to interact with this tablet computer. There are new window options, gestures, and a whole new interaction language. In this episode of Processor, Dieter Bohn nerds out on the idea that UI has a grammar and the iPad’s interface might not be as intuitive as it used to be.

    I have a nearly 3k MBP and i prefer to use my new iPad Pro for just about everything. The power is just incredible the multiple form factors allow a better fit in my hectic lifestyle. From running a business to editing , drawing and many aspects of productivity; where at a point where the iPad Pro is simply limited by software not anything else. With IOS13 besides coding my MBP was an investment that didnt really pay off. I cannot say that about my iPad Pro which is just a better companion for a busy lifestyle. LTE is also a huge factor along with its power.

    All nice, Dieter. But where‘s the answer to the question in the title of the video? Does the iPad Pro with iPadOS make sense as a computer now?

    Learning how to use all these different gestures is tiresome ... is this what it feels like to get older??

    You made some really good points in this video. I loved it. I don't know if I agree with everything you said, but I understood all of it. I really learned a lot; especially in the grammar part.

    I am using customizable gestures on the MacBook for years with BetterTouchTool ;)
    If you select intuitive gestures, you get used to it unbelievabely fast and improve your work productivity easiely.
    Looking forward to even more gestures!

    I am a linguist, but I'm also training to become an app developer. I thought the language part in the video was very interesting. Can you make a specific video to elaborate on this part?

  • Grant Briggs
    Grant Briggs Před 26 dny

    Agreed... I'm already starting to be overwhelmed with gestures and accidentally doing something.... It's extremely heightened when trying to teach my parents how to use an iPad... Wasn't too bad with an early generation iOS device... Now.... Omg... So difficult!!

  • Felipe Guaragna Schorn

    Maybe is intentional, because Apple is writing its own history now since they don’t considerate the tendency of skeuomorphism design anymore and, actually, nowadays they can write, and design, their own visual language. I’m not sure if I should be happy or terrified of thinking about this...

    Love your reviews/analysis. Definitely more of a learning curve. You are spot on. Reminds me of first learning how to use a Palm Pilot.

    New features, new learning curves. iPad used to be simple but if you want more features, you have to learn the ways to adapt to it. iPad running iPadOS will someday be everyone's everyday computer.

      Maggie, they probably will put in their CHclip channel.

    Kindly compare iPad pro with Surface. The options in this segment is very low.
    Also a separate video on grammar would be interesting. Too lazy to do a degree in English to improve my grammar.

    Thanks Apple for making me discover the song Magic by Mr Jukes in the iOS 13 lives in the dark video.

  • Film Studies Fundamentals

    Would happily indulge Dieter and watch a video on semiotics in User Interfaces/Experiences: I see that book on Barthes there!
    This is a great video though; mot only does the grammar metaphor make a lot of sense, it really helps to explain why many can’t use the iPad as a computer given the language already learned on the desktop. If we’re chatting grammar though, more references to David Crystal are needed!

    Omg, so why post a video then?

    I think the trouble is that no matter how you approach it, the more pro features you add to the iPad, the more complicated its interface becomes. These are features we’ve been screaming for Apple to implement for years, so I am happy to see them finally arrive. I think this is an example of Apple going out on a limb to serve their power users. As long as these new features don’t interfere with simpler interactions, I see it as a plus. I’m sure Apple will refine them overtime, once they’ve been in users hands longer.

    I’ve always wanted an iPad for years now but I’ve been waiting patiently for iPads to be able to replace a standard lap top. We are getting closer to seeing this happen and I’m getting closer to buying one. I say another 2-3 years that day may finally come and I’ll finally have one.

    Funny how I’ve used an iPad as a solo device for a while now and I don’t feel limited. Also funny how the Same people that complain about the iPad pros price will go out and spend 1k on a flagship android phone that has a functionally smaller App Store.

    • Jesse Mitchell
      Jesse Mitchell Před 27 dny

      if You just look at the numbers sure. But if you take out all the fluff and malware apps, the number is much lower. If you consider how many useful and thought out apps are on both, apple comes out miles ahead. Even a quick look at the music apps confirms this. Ableton lists all apps compatible with its “link” function across all operating systems. iOS has 155, where android has 13. The same is true in basically every other app category.

    Great video! I’ve been “iPad only” for over two years now! I build/maintain websites, am a hobby artist, edit video, make/record music, and of course, general user! the iPad 2018 made everything easier, and I’m looking forward to iPad OS to see how it impacts my work/workflow. I’m not a fan of the gestures Apple has chosen. Some powerhouse apps like Procreate have adopted a set of gestures that are common in other drawing apps such as 2 finger tap for undo, 3 finger tap for redo. Not to mention, those apps often have a settings feature allowing me to choose/set how the gestures work. I’m hoping Apple will do the same at some point so we can have standard gestures across the whole iPad experience. I suppose it will more likely be up to 3rd party apps to adapt to Apple’s choices...but we’ll see. I love that you related gestures to grammar, and I agree that the choices are not necessarily intuitive. Thanks again for the video!

    Did Apple talked about the Maps app on the recent WWDC? Why can’t Apple make the Maps operate even without a data connection? Only for the iPhones and iPads that has gps.

    Great Video!
    I think the Recap of the critics in the iPad review from last year shows how great the iPad OS improvements are and how big the step into the direction of a computer replacement really is.
    Overall, apple probably fulfilled us more wishes that we could have had expected, what do you think?
