I have come to depend on my iPad both when running and when playing RPGs.
10 January 2015 was the first time I was getting ready to run a game and found myself thinking about having contingencies in case my iPad had issues.
My iPad Air 2 is undoubtedly the best iPad I’ve had yet. Except it doesn’t feel as reliable. Too often, in the few months I’ve had it, it has locked up or spontaneously rebooted. Once it appeared completely dead for a while.
Is it iOS? Is it the iPad Air 2? Is it a flaw in just my particular iPad? Is it the extensions I’m using that iOS has enabled? I don’t know.
(System extensions were always the biggest culprit of technical issues on the Mac. As happy as I am with the extensibility iOS 8 has enabled, I’m less happy to have the uncertainty that comes with them.)
Of course, the iPad is still the tablet that has most met my expectations.
