The best note-taking apps for the iPad Pro and Pencil (2018)

The best note-taking apps for the iPad Pro and Pencil (2018)

The iPad Pro and Apple Pencil are arguably the best tablet + stylus pairing currently available. When used with a good note-taking app, the slate is revolutionary in educational settings, opening the door for natural handwritten notes paired with features not possible with pen and paper. The best hardware in the world, though, would be wasted on a low-quality note-taking app, and that's where this list comes in.

Microsoft making an iPad competitor

Microsoft making an iPad competitor

Microsoft refuses to believe that the iPad cannot be challenged in the tablet market. There's rumor this week that Microsoft is planning a set of low-cost Surface tablets that'll be released in the second half of the year 2018. These slightly less expensive Surface-brand tablets will run Windows 10 and will cost around $400 USD according to people familiar with the information.

iPad Review 2018: This one’s for my kids

iPad Review 2018: This one’s for my kids

This newest iteration of the iPad isn't made for the people who buy a new iPad each time Apple makes one available. Instead, the iPad we're reviewing here today is the Cupertino company's continuation of a design that's already been proven to work. People that've never owned an iPad, people that haven't bought a new iPad for a half-decade, and people looking to buy iPads for schools - this is the iPad for you. I'm a parent, and it turns out this iPad is for my children and me, too.

iPad 2018 vs iPad 2017: New product, old hardware

iPad 2018 vs iPad 2017: New product, old hardware

Today we're having a peek at the new iPad compared to the old iPad, specs on specs. These two devices are exceedingly similar to one-another, looking a whole lot like each-other on the outside save one minor detail. It's what's inside the counts, in a big way. It begins with the Apple Pencil, a device which works on the new iPad, but does not work with the old.

Isn’t Apple’s big secret obvious?

Isn’t Apple’s big secret obvious?

In the past few weeks we've seen some real crazy rumors about what Apple will present today at their big education event. They've included cheaper iPads, a new MacBook Air, and even a new iMac Pro. One wildly maniacal rumor suggested Apple was making a new iPad to fight the last vestiges of resistance in the Android tablet market. But what's most obvious - and most likely - isn't what Apple's hiding. It's what Apple's already made plainly obvious.

Microsoft Edge launches support for iPad and Android tablets

Microsoft Edge launches support for iPad and Android tablets

The debate over which browser is the best has been going for nearly as long as the internet has been around. Though Microsoft's Internet Explorer was once the butt of many jokes, the company has been doing some neat things with Microsoft Edge, which was introduced alongside Windows 10. If, by chance, Microsoft has managed to win you over with the features in Edge, then here's a bit of good news: It's available on more platforms beginning today.

Tablets are struggling, and only 2 strategies are working

Tablets are struggling, and only 2 strategies are working

Aggressive pricing pushed Amazon's tablets ahead of Samsung last quarter, but even with Apple's iPad holding strong in pole position it may take a form-factor change to keep the segment moving. Sales of tablets slowed dramatically in 2017, according to the new Q4 2017 numbers from IDC, though some subcategories managed a little growth. Still, there are clear signs that consumers aren't going to settle for just a big display in order to open their wallet.

If the 2018 iPad with Face ID looks this good, I’m sold

If the 2018 iPad with Face ID looks this good, I’m sold

Rumors of a new iPad have begun, and if the images we've got here are any indication, Apple's next slate will be a masterpiece. We've seen our fair share of iPhone concepts in the past from a wide variety of creators - but not so much on the iPad - save the months leading up to the iPad Pro. This is probably largely because of the device's relative lack of need for change over the past half-decade.

AT&T Primetime 10-inch tablet has a TV Mode and arrives on Friday

AT&T has just announced its own exclusive tablet, and it'll be available starting on Friday. The tablet is called Primetime, and it's not surprising that AT&T has packed a TV Mode onto it given that name choice. Though obviously available for everyone, the tablet seems ideal for those who already have (or plan to get) an AT&T wireless subscription and/or DirecTV television. The tablet can be added to an existing AT&T wireless plan for $20/month.
