iPad Pro Companion

This podcast is the best accessory to the iPad Pro. You can learn from developers why they made the choices they made, learn about productivity tools and new ways to use the iPad Pro. I highly recommend this podcast to anyone starting to use their iPad as their main device or to the person who only uses an iPad. You will definitely end each episode learning something new and heading over to the App Store to integrate what you just heard.

If you own an iPad you have to give this podcast a try

As a long time ipad enthusiast this podcast resonates with me so much. A great host that covers all sorts of iPad related topics with amazing guests. Easily among the top 3 tech related podcasts for me!

joeeeeeeeeeeeeeee ,

Where has this podcast been?

I tried the iPad only lifestyle back in the Air 2 days and did my best to make it work, and iPadOS has fixed a lot of issues, but the information and interviews here are gold. Love hearing other iPad users setups, apps, and use cases. Got a lot of ideas here.
