How iPad Replaced my Phone and Laptop

How iPad Replaced my Phone and Laptop

Better than a laptop

The iPad is super sleek and fiercely functional with so many multitasking features such as gesture navigation, slide over, split screen, split view, picture in picture, and a dock for favorite apps that also automatically displays recently used apps. It’s a total breeze to use. 


Since I created this travel blog with Jimdo, I use the Jimdo Creator app to easily edit and update my entire website, including create and edit blog posts. In fact, I’m typing this on the app right now. Easy breezy.

Better than a phone

With the same cellular data capabilities as the iPhone, I just pop in my global sim and use cellular data if I ever can’t access wifi. I use cellular data for iMessage, FaceTime, email, maps and apps on the go. Apps like Talkatone give a phone number with international texting, calling, and voicemail.

I can easily take all the photos that I need with the two built-in cameras and adjust size with Image Size. And lastly, all my favorite travel apps and food apps are way easier to use and navigate on the iPad’s larger screen, delivering a far superior user, and brand, experience. Multitasking helps me use them simultaneously whenever I want to.

All in one device

Ultimately, the smaller, slimmer, lighter, longer lasting device, with touch screen functionality, rendered my MacBook totally useless. My iPhone fast followed, since I hated staring at my phone, plus I only used it for maps and camera, and those were already covered, too. So, goodbye, obsolete devices.

Carrying around only one device instantly gives me less to worry about - instead of owning multiple machines and constantly worrying about keeping them all maintained, updated, synced, safe, protected, and charged, not to mention the huge annoyance of throwing them all around during every single airport security check.


Weighing in at just a pound, my sweet little tablet barely even adds to my 11 pounds of life. It’s the perfect minimalist lifestyle machine!
