How is the iPad for working with text?
The iPad requires you to use your finger or iPencil as an input device. It seems to me that this is a pretty clumsy way for working with text (selection, cursor positioning, drag-and-drop, etc). I know there are people here who use an iPad for coding and editing large documents – what’s your experience like? Is it possible to be even remotely as productive on an iPad as it is when you have a mouse or trackpad? Does each app need to individually support the iPencil for working with text, and how much better is an iPencil vs. a finger?
EDIT: The responses are pretty much what I expected: editing sucks. What about using an iPencil, though? Does that change anything? Seems like it would be good for cursor movement, at least.
