I already use my iPad 3 for most of my daily work. These functionalities will make it even easier, and my travel bag will become less heavy as I now have less use of my laptop which is a superlight MacBook Air with an SSD disk. The only times I have use of my laptop hereafter, is when I want to do demos in the MacOS environment.

One thing I learned in my life as a scout, professional soldier, press photographer, journalist:

Travel as light as You can.

Now I do!
