I have a 3 and if possible use it more with each passing day.

I spent 10 bucks on a bluetooth keyboard which works just fine. The touch screen works great for much of what I do on there, but if I’m doing writing (I’m a free lance writer and photographer) or editing video or audio, a real keyboard is much better and easier. On a real keyboard, I type around 50wpm as opposed to maybe 15 or 20 on the touch screen. So you can see where I’m coming from with this 🙂 They have done a good job on the touch screen keyboard though … it’s faster than I ever thought something like that could be.

Now I don’t use my MacBookPro every day. Just for certain things it’s better. Plus I haven’t set up air print on my printer so can’t yet print from my iPad.

When my brother 1st got one I was skeptical. Why, would I want one? I worked as a secretary so am a good typist & used to computers–even used to use typewriters which thankfully we don’t need any more. But I use it every day. I like the way it comes up so quickly & I can text, email, browse internet & use other apps.

I’m also in my 2nd iPhone–since Verizon offered a 32 GB 5C for free. My 4S was still working fine but couldn’t resist. Guess they wanted to get my back on contract.

Like a lot of things mgt that are new & different, it’s hard to tell how much you wil use it until you actually do. I thought I might need a physical keyboard but found w my case (Belkin) which looks like a notebook & doubles as a stand, I can type pretty rapidly. Just have to watch for the auto correct, but w the bigger keyboard, much better than iPhone.

But I know what you mean about grey text. I guess it looks cool, but harder to read, especially w older eyes.

At 1st I thought I would. But have learned to do sort of a 3 finger typing that is can do fairly rapidly.

My phone does everything I need and nor it or the ipad can do what a real computer can do..so for me there’s no need for an ipad.
