I love yellow legal pads. They impart an air of professionalism, involvement, and importance. When I was a teacher, I took legal pads to every meeting. I took copious notes and would often refer back to them to help aid my decaying memory. My low-tech system worked fine—unless I misplaced the legal pad.
When I got my iPad, I started looking for an app to replace my legal pad. Not only would I have it with me whenever I needed it, but it would provide me with a way to permanently store my notes and never fear losing them again. The built-in Notes app on the iPad provided limited input and formatting options. I needed more flexibility for my note-taking endeavors.
As this is being written in the spring, rumors are circulating that voice control technology will be deeply integrated into iOS 5. Whether in iOS 5 or later, it seems inevitable that much of our interaction with our devices will eventually take place just by speaking.
Of course, there are already many apps that use speech recognition, and ever since the 3GS, the iPhone has had a basic voice control feature that lets you make calls or request particular songs just by speaking into your phone (see sidebar page 38). But the forthcoming developments will go much further.
As a busy mom, wife, and techie, I need to stay organized and on schedule. My iPad has become an integral part of my everyday life. My desktop computer is now primarily used for synching my gadgets, backing up data, and large Photoshop projects. Gone are the days I sit in my home office for hours communicating, creating, and researching.
