Life has a funny way of surprising me from time to time, and this time it chose to do it with the iPad. Until recently, I seemed to dislike most of what the latest technology had to offer. I disliked touch screens, and stayed away from smartphones – from my perspective, they tried to do too much all in one device. Naturally, when iPads and iPad minis were announced, I was a skeptic of their use and functionality. I was finally convinced to try one out and here I am now, with my very own iPad mini that I cannot do without.
I’ll be the first to admit that there are a lot of nifty things with the iPad (oh Solitaire), but for me the real value of it truly comes from the pianist’s perspective. If you’re considering buying this as a musician, this list will probably shed a bit of light for you.
