iPad has been a key topic on MacStories for years. In fact, it was Federico's exploration of using iPad as its primary computer that first led me to become a reader of the site and then an iPad first user himself.
Today I am thrilled to introduce a new podcast on relay FM where Federico and I are going to talk about the iPad and challenge us to do new things with our favorite device. The show is called Adapt, and the first episode is available now.
Adapt was born out of a love of iPad and a desire to continue pushing our own use of it forward. Federico previously hosted an iPad-focused podcast with Fraser Speirs called Canvas, but since it ended Federico, and I dreamed up its spiritual successor, with a similar focus on the iPad, but a unique new format.
Every episode of Adapt will be about another iPad-specific challenge. Whether Federico or myself (or sometimes both) will be assigned a challenge involving using the iPad in a different way than our norm. We want to stretch ourselves forever to pursue creativity in the use of the iPad, rather than being stuck by using the same workflows and doing the same tasks. Our hope is that when we share about tackling these challenges, our experiences will inspire listeners to consider how their own iPad use can evolve. At first Federico, I will assign each other's challenges, but we plan to integrate the listener's challenge ideas in the future. In our first episode, Federico is busy using a custom keyboard to get something done for work.
By participating in the challenge segment, episodes of Adapt also regularly have a unique topic related to various aspects of the iPad and iOS. We discuss issues like the upcoming iOS 1
Finally, in many episodes we will also have a segment with listening problems. Federico and I have a combined 18 years of experience with the iPad, and 11 with the iPad as our primary computer. The journey of using an iPad as more than one tablet can come up with their speedboats and we will help you navigate them. If you have an iPad related question, just send a tweet containing your question and hashtag #AskAdapt. We will do our best to answer any questions we may have.
Adapt's name and brand line, "Stay Curious", was born of a desire to continue learning, growing and adapting to the new tools the iPad offers. The computer is experiencing a major transition period, from traditional systems to those developed from the smartphone, and we will be at the forefront of adapting to that change.
Whether you're just curious about the iPad or you're already a heavy iPad user, we believe that Adapt will give you the perfect opportunity to explore with us what this device can do.
You can subscribe today via Apple Podcasts, Cloudcast, Pocket Casts, Castro or our RSS feed and start listening to our debut episode now. Episodes of Adapt will be published every other week on Thursdays, so our second episode will fall on May 30. If you want to follow the show on Twitter, we are @_ adaptfm and more information is available on the Relay FM site.
I'm excited about the chance to join Federico in stretching the iPad, and ourselves, in ways we've never done before. It's going to be a fun trip.
