Coding on the iPad Pro: how?

- Posted in Uncategorized - 2 comments

I am trying to find a solution to be able to use the iPad Pro for coding. So far what I’ve got is Coda where I can use the iPad in split screen mode to create a small website. It could be useful for some basic HTML/CSS work, but that’s about it. Ideally I’ll find […]

Using the iPad Pro as a second screen (2)

- Posted in Uncategorized

I tried to use the iPad Air as an external screen using Duet in a client meeting… it was a disaster. First of all I couldn’t mirror my screen properly, so I was trying to control a second I couldn’t really see all that well. Then whenever I tried to go into full screen mode […]
