I can’t blog from the iPad

I can’t blog from my iPad, and it’s entirely due to my workflow. I’m hopeful that iOS 5 will solve the problem.

When I’m writing an article, I like to refer to research material, like a source, supporting articles, etc. Typically that means hopping between browser tabs or text documents. Neither is really feasible with the iPad.

When I open a critical number of browser windows in mobile Safari, the inevitable re-load starts to happen. Plus, as convenient as iOS multi-tasking is, hopping between apps is a hassle when you do it as often as I do while writing an article.

Mobile Safari will feature tabs under iOS 5. Here’s hoping I’ll be able to hop between them easily, and finally start blogging from my iPad.
