The Switch to iPad is here

I recently announced a new project by yours truly, called Switch to iPad. If you’ve been with me for some time, you know I’m an avid iPad user. It’s my favorite computing device, and I rely on it for great many things.

But not all of them, at least not yet.

Switch to iPad takes the form of regular letters, from me to you, about making the switch from traditional computing devices, such as a laptop PC or an iMac, to the iPad. It doesn’t necessarily mean that you trash your old computer in favor of the magic slate of glass, but it could in fact end up there in the end.

The first issue of Switch to iPad goes out to subscribers – free and paid alike – in a couple of hours. The second will run on Friday – I’m hitting the ground running on this one.

If any of this sounds even remotely interesting, do sign up for a subscription. Every bit helps, even the free ones.

I’m using Substack for this project, and there’s a paid tier with the typical $5/month or $50/year options. Naturally, the majority of letters will be paid, but I intend to cater to the free crowd as well.

(If you’re unable to pay for whatever reason, but really really really want to get in on the Switch to iPad journey, do let me know. Money can be hard to come by, and in many parts of the world $5 is a lot. Just get in touch on Twitter, or reply to one of the free letters, and we’ll see what we can do.)

I’m really excited to kick off Switch to iPad properly! It’ll be fun, and I hope you’ll join me on the journey – because it truly is a journey towards the complete switch to iPad. While the iPad surely is my primary computing device, and has been for a long time, I still rely on my MacBook for some things. I intend to solve that, and have solved a lot of it already. Maybe you have too? Together we can figure this out.

Now, the first issue of Switch to iPad clocks in at around 1,450 words. I’m going to go over it one last time, and then I’m getting it out there.

Join me in the Switch to iPad!
