    I have always lacked a multifunctional system clipboard in iOS/iPadOS, which could store several copied fragments of text, pictures, links, etc. So far, this is a primitive clipboard, and this is one of the significant inconveniences compared to Android, which I also use. There, before pasting, in the pop-up menu-strip, in addition to the options "Copy", "Paste", there is also a "Clipboard", clicking on which opens a dialog with thumbnails of previously copied fragments, by tapping on any of which, you can paste this fragment where need to.
    Is there some third-party solutions for this? I'm sure this will be an inelegant "crutch" that requires additional taps and transitions to other menus, which impairs productivity. But still.

    IDK... I rarely post a negative comment - BUT...... this whole video seems like a giant sales ad for "my links below "
    About 95% of the apps you talk about can easily be ignored as there are perfectly good/better/integrated native apps on the iPad.

      I only put links below to make it easier for people to find the apps. There is not affiliate link for any apps that I use. Also these are solid apps made by developers that care about the ecosystem.

    Your content is very good - you have very objective analysis and great insights.
    However the sound of your videos is often excruciatingly poor, most of all when it’s about plosives. Watching your videos on a TV with good sound or on good quality headset is borderline painful.

    I subbed, i feel like i do alot of this in my head. And manual is not bad i mean stick airpod in ear and turn on Bluetooth it does not need to automated, you still click as many buttons rights. I will watch somemore of you videos to try and understand i just feel most of this fine in calender and keep notes, and alarms. Letting me use my brain and ipad to do more creative art stuff . Not opposed, to each his own right. I do say you know and use alot more apps than me.

    Apple should link this video as an example for iPad-Beginners and Advanced-Users, to show what's possible to be productive in a stylish way.
    Actually, for fast photoediting I like Darkroom the most, as it allows working in apples photo library - a feature that adobe-apps are missing (by purpose)

    Hi Christopher,
    I've been following your videos for awhile and I find them great. I particularly like everything related to dark appearance and iPad customization for productivity purposes.
    However, would you be able to create a short video on how to quickly create a local server with your Mac (and eventually iPhone as well). I constantly use the cloud to transfer files but this is obviously not the best option. Thanks!

    Literally sounds like you use the iPad for each step of your life. Aren’t you wasting so much time? I never understood why people write what they do down. My life is literally 19 hours a day never stop moving. I remember what I need to do every time. I would think all that is a waste of time, which is waste of money.

Thanks to you, I learn tons of way to do more work on my ipad with the app that you recommended. I've also learn a lot from your workflow too! Hope to see more video from this channel.

    You like shortcuts don't you.. even writing the "a" in manager seemed to be too much work to you :) It feels like a lot of time spent to build too many shortcuts, in the end I would feel overwhelmed with all of these and stop using half of them. It seems like a new type of friction, when you need to search extensively for a shortcut. Plus all the subscription costs...

I had to stop part way through just to say that I’m especially enjoying all of the mentions of things I already know and like - some apps, but especially the podcasts! It’s great to randomly stumble upon fellow Relay FM fans “in the wild”, especially when it results in finding new and exciting sources of content and information! Also, since you clearly have good taste in these things that align with my own, I’m even more interested in your recommendations for things I don’t yet know :)
