New ESPN App

I do watch a lot of sports, but I do not typically rely on any specific app for my sports news per se. I like the Yahoo Sports app for the iPhone/iPad because of its speed, but ESPN is more my style editorially. I don’t really use their apps all that much becuase I have histroically found them underwhelming. Apparentally that is about to change. This is really a great read about the changes coming and the design decisions ESPN made along the way.

iPad Reflexion – Week 3 – Shady

When I first received the iPad, I told my self, “no way I’m going to be able to use this for writing without a real keyboard”.  After two weeks of in-class writing, I am very impressed at how well the native iPad keyboard works.  The auto-correct makes it a breeze.  I can type without even looking at the on-screen keyboard, with making little to no mistakes.   At this point, I feel I’m better off without a physical keyboard, but I wouldn’t mind giving it a try to see how it might improve the typing experience.  Perhaps good to have when writing long papers.

One thing that I still find hard to do is to move the cursor to the desired position.  Even with the magnifier it can be a challenge.

I really enjoy going to class with just the iPad, no bags, books, notebooks, pens.  I’m able to open all the content for the class, read, browse, and blog.
