People sing the praises of Apple as being easier, more dependable and more intuitive than PCs. To be fair, this is my first Apple product since the Apple IIe. But I recently discovered a HUGE glitch with the iPad.
I’ve been using the Notes program that comes with the iPad for taking meeting notes, including the NYSCATE tech conference I recently attended.
After the conference, I wanted to paste an asterisk next to some action items. Alas! I accidentally chose “select all” and then paste. In an instant, two days worth of notes disappeared, replaced by an asterisk. And there is no “undo” button.
At least “clunky”, “uncool” Microsoft applications all come with an “undo” button. Maybe they recognize that since they are not perfect, perhaps some of their users are not uber-perfect either.
It’s pretty easy for your finger to slip and obliterate hours of work. Obviously, I will look for another note-taking tool. But I have to ask…..do only “perfect” humans use Apple products?
