Here, we’ve compiled a list of the best iPad Quotes from famous authors such as Mel Giedroyc, Isabel Allende, Arash Ferdowsi, Tyson Chandler, Marc Guggenheim. Let’s look at these pieces of wisdom. We definitely have something to learn from them!
People can now get to see anything they want, in any shape or form, anywhere, on laptop, iPad or ‘phone. What’s not controllable, though, is the live element. So there’s still a real thrill for TV viewers in watching actors pulling it all together and performing live, and a real challenge for the actors.
I read on my iPad when I travel. I listen to audiobooks in the car. I read books in my bedroom, where I have a comfortable couch, a lamp and two dogs to keep me warm.
We want to let you use a Mac, or Windows PC, or iPad, or Android, without having to think about any of the technical details.
I really enjoy the iPad because you can multi-task: I can watch a movie, read, look at pictures that I shot – because I’m into photography. It serves a lot of purposes for me.
We’re not militant, but there are certain things that are absolutely secret. There was a pilot printed on red paper, and I read everything on my iPad and have a scanner on my desk for these purposes. I scanned in the script, and red paper script scans in perfectly fine.
I think a lot of what the iPad app is going to be used for is just reading the best content on Quora. It really helps the whole system run because people who are writing answers can get this very wide distribution to a large audience of readers.
What I hope is, over time, users should not have to read a training manual. They should say, ‘I totally get the Workday iPad app, because it runs the way my consumer apps run.’
People with a lot of money aren’t in the business of throwing it away, and those paying footballers’ wages, organising parking spaces for dead sharks, and even, dare I say it, buying iPads, are doing it because, for them, it’s worth the money.
When I’m on the couch, I usually have the TV on and my MacBook Air nearby. And sometimes, when my ADD is really kicking in, I have my iPad too. And my iPhone. And a magazine that I haven’t gotten to. And a book under the pillow to my left.
That’s why we created Flipboard as a social magazine meant for an iPad, meant for a large touch-screen device. That idea of content presented beautifully, oriented around communities and special topics of interest, is really powerful.
The iPod wasn’t the first MP3 player. Nor were the iPhone and iPad the first in their categories. The real reason for the success of these devices – the true unsung hero at Apple – is the iTunes software and iTunes Store. Because Apple provided them, it wasn’t just selling hardware.
I wrote a lot about the need for an information appliance. I think we’ve pretty much arrived at one: the iPad. A child could figure out how to use it quickly. Compare it to a DOS computer or even an Apple II; it’s no longer nearly as much of a hassle or a mystery.
I love physical books, can’t bear to throw them away, and am drowning under the weight of my collection, but I do a lot of my work reading now on my iPad.
Steve Jobs is like a brother to me and he’s one of the founders of Pixar, and when the first iPad came out, I got one right away.
I think instead writers and publishers and readers need to go to the places where people are, and make the argument that there is great value to the quiet, contemplative process of reading a novel, that reading great books carefully offers pleasures and consolations that no iPad app ever can.
The iPad is the greatest thing as far as kids.
I don’t have a phone, but I do have an iPad.
The iPad is creating a new format for reading content. One of the things that’s happening as a result is the world of personalized news aggregators, which is a category that’s been around for quite some time, is getting new life.
I still like the idea of having an intimate experience with a movie, but I love watching stuff on my iPad. It’s close, and I feel like I’m a part of it, so maybe that makes more sense in some cases.
Our new app increases the exposure of Engel & Volkers’ premier services and properties to the growing number of iPad users who are researching their real estate markets, locally and globally.
I got my iPad, and I’m trying to buy books on that, but I kind of like a book. At the end of my life, when I’m old, I want to have all these shelves full of books. So I’m just gonna do the book thing.
Once archaeologists have shown possible ‘new’ ancient features, they can import the data into their iPads and take it to the field to do survey or excavation work. Technology doesn’t mean we aren’t digging in the dirt anymore – it’s just that we know better where to dig.
I see the iPad as a wonderful new drawing medium, but I am at a loss as to how to make it pay.
I’m not a techie, but I don’t know how I lived without an iPad! Mine comes with me everywhere. As greatest inventions go, it’s up there with electricity and cars.
When you’re in a meeting and you pull out your paper notebook, people look at you and go, ‘Oh, he’s taking a note.’ But if you’re in a meeting and you pull out your iPad, they go, ‘Oh, he’s checking Facebook.’
Reading for me will be a combination of books, magazines, Tumblr and just kind of the Web in general on the iPad.
I really like the iPad. I think that’s pretty cool.
What’s really interesting is the introduction of the tablet – not just the iPad, but the Nook and the Kindle. While they aren’t going to solve all of our problems, I do think they make it easier for people to pause, linger, read and really process very important ideas.
Previously, young children had to be shown by their parents how to use a mouse or a remote, and the connection between what they were doing with their hand and what was happening on the screen took some time to grasp. But with the iPad, the connection is obvious, even to toddlers.
Look around on your next plane trip. The iPad is the new pacifier for babies and toddlers. Younger school-aged children read stories on smartphones; older boys don’t read at all, but hunch over video games. Parents and other passengers read on Kindles or skim a flotilla of email and news feeds.
But for those who really want to make the world a better place, can we start looking at Bill Gates’s path instead of Steve Jobs? I like my iPad, but Gates is one of the greatest heroes of our time. For me, that has nothing to do with Microsoft and everything to do with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
With my projects, I really like the extreme high-tech stuff, but I also like the other end, the acoustic things. So it seems like those meet on an iPad, where you make shapes but the sounds coming out of it are really acoustic.
You really can’t function without a phone or an iPad.
I like reading. I prefer not reading on my computer, because that makes whatever I am reading feel like work. I do not mind reading on my iPad.
One thing about Apple is they have these fanboys – as I always say, ‘Sell to the people who love us.’ For example when they came up with iPad mini, everyone who had an iPad went out and bought a mini as well.
Everyone making electronic music has the same tool kits and templates. You listen, and you feel like it can be done on an iPad. If everybody knows all the tricks, it’s no more magic.
I am the first to admit my iPad is the coolest thing in the world, but when we can be in a room together and really connect, or leave the gadgets home and go for a hike, then I’m happy.
You know, I have a lot of books on my iPad, but when I try to read them, I find myself wandering off to play games. Those are books I’m interested in. I can’t imagine what would have happened to me in college if my biology class had been on the same computer as ‘Words With Friends’ and ‘Doom.’
I take my mobile phone and iPad wherever I go. I like to switch off when I’m on holiday, but I always check emails in case someone at home is trying to get hold of me.
People, me included, have a truly emotional thing about this iPad.
Apple makes beautiful products. I own a Mac Pro, a Mac Book, a Mac Mini, an iPad, an iPhone, pretty much the entire collection.
What’s great about the iPad and iPhone is that they are easy-on, easy-off.
My daughter Mira’s first media experience was with the first-generation iPad more than five years ago. Her speech therapist used this with her to encourage her to talk, as she was speech delayed. I watched as she immediately navigated the iPad naturally, with such ease.
Content is supposed to be king. But in the world of electronic devices, Apple seems to be placing the crown on its own head, apparently believing that its iPad and iPhone are more important to customers than the books, movies, and music they store on them.
I write on big yellow legal pads – ideas in outline form when I’m doing stand-up and stuff. It’s vivid that way. I can’t type it into an iPad – I think that would put a filter into the process.
I loved reading Roald Dahl when I was young but I had forgotten a lot about the books. I read the ‘BFG’ on the iPad the other day and it was so interesting to see his descriptions of clothes and places.
I use the iPhone and iPad every day, and I no longer touch PCs at all.
Kids are prone to be on their phone and their iPads, prone to sharing things and making things. Instead of trying to divorce education from that, let’s lean into that.
The central question driving literary aesthetics in the age of the iPad is no longer ‘How should novels be?’ but ‘Why write novels at all?’
To rush to throw away your magazine business and move it on the iPad is just sheer insanity and insecurity and fear.
It’s a nice reader, but there’s nothing on the iPad I look at and say, ‘Oh, I wish Microsoft had done it.’
Instead of five hundred thousand average algebra teachers, we need one good algebra teacher. We need that teacher to create software, videotape themselves, answer questions, let your computer or the iPad teach algebra… The hallmark of any good technology is that it destroys jobs.
I’m carrying an iPhone 5. I like this device. It’s been impressive. I have a Windows and an Android device… I carry an iPad. I carry a Kindle… Yeah, I have a lot of devices.
There are huge pain points experienced by parents. It’s hard to find good child care options in one place. It’s hard figure out things to do with your kids on the weekends or after school. It’s hard to find iPad apps for your kids that you are confident are helping them learn vs. just being entertained.
The iPad needs to catch up with Flash before I put a hand on it.
I have a particular pair of headphones I love so much I bring them everywhere: Beats Studio. It’s perfect for watching movies as well because you feel like you have your own theater with you, even with your iPad.

Well, clearly Apple is a role model of the American innovation whereby it produced all these products – iPod, iPhone, iPad – that are really now dominating all the technology arena in the world.
Compared to running apps on a smartphone or, more aptly, an iPad, the app experience on the Samsung Chromebook Plus is distinctly subpar.

Think about the possibility: why is it that iPhones and iPads advance far faster than the health tools that are available to you to help take care of your family?
I constantly do puzzle books. Smash through them. My iPad’s full of them. Logic puzzles. Bridges. Slitherlink.

With fashion, you really need to understand the aspects of construction. Not just design on an iPad.
I have four Macs, four iPads, and two phones, and I upgrade them all to the newest build pretty much every day.
How you feel about the modern, multitouch tablet depends a lot on what you think Steve Jobs and company set out to do with the iPad back in 2010. If you believe he was out to make a bigger smartphone or to entirely replace the Mac and PC, you’re wrong.
I really believe you’ll get a music video one of these days that I shot with an iPad because it’s that consistent and that good. It’s HD.
I’m a Philadelphia sports fanatic. I still watch Phillies games on my iPad, which is basically admitting to having daily torture sessions.

If you turn on ABC 7 in the morning San Francisco, you’ll see them using an iPad with Waze on it, and actually talking about.
I got invited to what’s called the Gifting Suite in Toronto. I had the day off, so I thought I’d go and see what’s what. You come out laden with wonderful stuff. Apparently, if you go to the Oscars, you get given things like iPads. Not that I’m in it for the swag.
The iPhone was broadly dismissed. The iPod was broadly dismissed. The iPad was probably more copiously written off as a large iPod.
If you want to run an ad on the iPad, it has to be approved by Apple.
That’ll be my claim to fame: My grandmother-in-law is the oldest iPad user!
We’re paying a lot of attention to the iPad. But we’re expanding that to a tablet focus.
I think my lack of ‘Pokemon’ knowledge and complete confusion at the descriptions makes people think I’m adorable, like a lost baby duckling or your grandmother trying to use an iPad.
I went to a restaurant and sat at the bar and ate by myself. I have my iPad, which is my favorite instrument of all time. I talked to a few people next to me. I’m just trying to be out. It’s a little bit scary.
The iPad is far and away the most successful product in its category.
The job of the iPad should be to be so powerful and capable that you never need a notebook.

From the first time I held an iPhone, the space has evolved quickly, and people have shifted from reading content on their desktops to smartphones and iPads, even long-form stuff.
I think there are things that digital can’t do as well as print thus far. Even an iPad is only 80% the size of a standard comics page, so the images are going to be smaller. You don’t get your big, whopping two-page spreads.
People say, ‘Well everybody needs a cellphone.’ Well, what does ‘need’ mean? Do you need an iPad? How about a computer? A printer?
The kids can’t watch ‘The Wire,’ but there’s great educational stuff for them to watch on TV if it is TV time. There are great apps on the iPad that are interactive and educational.

I like my iPad very much. I like to browse online shops and keep up to date with the world, so I carry it with me a lot.
I carry my iPad and laptop with me everywhere.
I don’t think one should incentivise the losing of teeth. I find the idea of a child getting an iPad, or a £20 note, for losing a tooth, utterly abhorrent. Fifty pence, or a pound at most, is what my children can expect from the Tooth Fairy.
There’s no doubt: The iPad is a beautiful, extremely well-designed device.
To my way of thinking, passive management of file assets is okay for screwing around with iPads, where we’re mainly watching TV on Netflix or obsessive-compulsively checking the popularity of our Instagram uploads.

Reading a hard copy book, and reading a book on an iPad are slightly different experiences. What they both have in common though is that you must engage your imagination in the process.
My little brother is four years old and he listens to all my music. I don’t know how he finds it, but he knows how to use an iPad and he’s always online. So one day my mum said: ‘You know what, you have to make something for your little brother,’ and that’s how I made ‘Lean & Bop.’
I have an iPod, but I do still love CDs. There’s something nice and tangible about a CD. I’m a mixture of old and new – I love my sewing machine, but I’ve also embraced new technology. The iPad is what did it for me – it’s extraordinary.
Well, I was never a ‘gadget girl.’ But in the last few years, the Blackberry and the iPad have changed my life or rather have become a part of my life.

What I discovered all over Ireland is that people living simple lives by the sea or in the remote countryside seem a lot calmer than city folk with their iPads and their Android phones.
People like me, when we’re interviewing, we’re not going back to our desktop to fill out a recruiting form. If I can quickly submit my evaluation through an iPhone or an iPad, that makes me a lot more productive.
I’m not terribly technological. I’m awfully backward about iPads and BlackBerries and suchlike; I still have a great fondness for Teletext, and I clung onto my fax machine for as long as I could, but eventually you have to move with the times.
A federal government with enough money to buy iPads for local gym teachers is not a federal government that has been cut to the bone.
If you can run your entire business on an iPad, like a food truck, then that’s Square country.
I have very long legs and I hate driving anything unless it’s a boat or an ATV in the jungle. I like to sit in the back of a car, where I can look out the window, answer my emails on my iPad, or hold hands with a pretty girl.
The iPad is a superior consumption device for material on the Web.
I was raised before the advent of DVD players in cars and iPads at the dinner table.
I think that some people will never buy a computer because I think now we’re at the point where the iPad does what some people want to do with their PCs.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words. In the nonprofit world, the right picture is worth tens of thousands of dollars. I use PhotoPad to sync our Samasource Flickr account to my iPad and slip it out of my purse at cocktail parties to tell our story.
My biggest vice is playing solitaire on my iPad. It’s bad. I mean, it’s ridiculous.
The iPad! What is better designed than that? I read magazines on it, I play Scrabble. I use it for everything.
I have to have everything. I have to have iPads. I’ve had I think every generation of iPod. I’ve had all the consoles at least once; I’ve had some of them twice. I get them and get fed up with them and get rid of them.
Let’s overwhelm the Castro regime with iPhones, iPads, American cars and American ingenuity.
Thanks to Twitter, iPads, BlackBerrys, voice-activated in-dash navigation systems, and a hundred other technologies that offer distraction anywhere, anytime, boredom has loosened its grip on us at last – that once-crushing ‘weight’ has become, for the most part, a memory.
Until you use the iPad for a couple of weeks, you can’t appreciate it. But it quickly becomes your primary consumption device.
‘Faraway’ takes only minutes or a couple of bus stops to play. The easy to use touch controls work beautifully on the iPad. This is the game that should come standard on every new iPad.
It’s been amazing to step out of a bottle of ink on to an iPad. There’s no better time than right now to embrace this fabulous sandpit of technology. Because intuitively, at the touch of a finger, most of it is possible.
