⇾ Using the iPad Pro as Main Computer

| | permalink

Jon has written a good post about his personal experience using an iPad Pro as his main computer. What I like is, that he describes how he got there and since when and what else he tried. I see a lot of things similar to what he describes. I was totally tempted to do exactly what he says and skip a computer update and get an iPad Pro (or a Surface earlier and heard what he says about this way too often sadly). The downsides he mentiones about using it for web related work are a reason not to do it right now. Still tempting … ;)

This article is a nice read about how to build an accessible color system from scratch.

In this Medium article Vernon Joyce has collected useful tips and examples to explain useful and subtle use of animation, that can actually add value to your website and/or interfaces.
