The iPad Is Not a PC

How to Think Different and Do Workflows Not Work to Maximise Your iPad Investment

This book is available for download with Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device. Multi-touch books can be read with Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device. Books with interactive features may work best on an iOS device. Apple Books on your Mac requires OS X 10.9 or later.


The iPad is not a PC. As obvious as that sounds, if the only computer you've ever used was mainly a box on a desk, or ran a desktop operating system with a physical keyboard attached, its only natural that the ways you attempt to use a new device will be dictated by the old paradigm. Instead of just sticking with such an approach, Apple Distinguished Educator Jonathan Nalder has created this book to look at the different ways that the PC and iPad have been designed to work. The book then details new ways that the iPad can be used for creating workflows rather than just work to help readers maximise their iPad investment.

What's New in Version 1.3

‘The iPad is not a PC’ has now been updated to be included in the Apple Distinguished Educators ‘One Best Thing’ collection.
