3 iPad Pro Accessories You NEED to Consider

It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of the iPad Pro. I’ve written about it enough and I use it all the time especially for writing my blog posts. There are some accessories that absolutely make my iPad better and this post is going to cover them. 1) The Apple Smart Keyboard Probably a no brainer and something that features on almost all blog posts of this nature but for good reason. I love this keyboard, I love the feel of typing on it and honestly, I really do not think another keyboard...

Apple Arcade Games I’m Playing | March

I mentioned in my post earlier this week that I finally succumbed to Apple Arcade and became a subscriber and I’m super happy with my decision. I’ve already in the few days that I’ve been subscribed found three games that I absolutely love (along with a bunch more that I’ve downloaded but not played yet) and I know I’m only going to find more. It seemed only right to create a new series on the blog dedicated to the Apple Arcade games I’m playing, seeing as I already have one about...

So I Got Apple Arcade…

I finally caved after many months of pondering over whether it was worth it and I subscribed to Apple Arcade. I’m currently still in the one month free trial period, which I think is very generous but I already know I’m going to be staying put. There are so many amazing games available and it’s only going to get bigger and better, so for someone who loves gaming of all kinds, it’s a no brainer. I love how there are so many games with controller support on Apple Arcade, something I’ve...

New Apps to Me | March

I’m back with another post that kicks off a new monthly series (on months where I discover new apps at least!). If you missed my iPad & iPhone Games post last week then you can check it out here. That post was the first in a monthly series I’m planning on doing covering the different games I’m playing month on month. I really like posts like this because not only do they give me a chance to share what I’m currently using but they’re also a way to document when I started using a...

iPad & iPhone Games I’m Playing | March

I’ve recently gotten into Little Alchemy 2 and I’m thoroughly enjoying it. I didn’t play the first one although I remember reading about it, not sure why I didn’t download it at the time as it’s right up my street. I like that you can dip in and out of it whenever you have a free moment or if you have plenty of time you can sit for hours trying different combinations. If you haven’t heard of Little Alchemy before, it’s as the name suggests an alchemy game where you start...

Apple AirPods Pro | Review

I originally had the 2nd Generation AirPods, only for around 2 weeks but I had them all the same. They were really good quality and I really liked them but I quickly realised that they weren’t going to be completely suitable for what I wanted to use them for. I like to wear headphones and listen to podcasts when I go on a walk and whilst I had zero issues with the sound quality, what bothered me a lot was that I had to have the volume up so loud to be able to hear it as...

Apple Smart Keyboard | My Thoughts

I’ve spoken about my love for my iPad Pro quite a bit on charlotterosewrites. I’m a long time Apple fan and I use my iPad all the time. I’m using it right now to write this post and I use it a lot for blogging in general as well as reading, watching YouTube videos and general internet use. I’ve had two different wireless keyboards for my iPad, one that is standalone that I’ve had for about 7 years. It still works fine but for me, a keyboard for my iPad needed to be...

Switching from Spotify to Apple Music

I’ve been a Spotify user for years and whilst I’ve never had a problem with it, becoming so deep within the Apple ecosystem made me consider why I wasn’t using Apple Music. I guess I hadn’t really thought about it before, because I’d just always had Spotify and hasn’t ever thought about what an alternative had to offer me but after coming across a couple of articles about Apple Music lately I started thinking about it a bit more. Eventually, I decided that as...

My 3 Favourite iPad Apps | February

Drafts – I’m actually using this app right now to write this blog post. Drafts is a great note-taking app that is available on the iPad, iPhone and Apple Watch. It allows you to take notes really quickly and categorise them as well as add tags to make them searchable. Another aspect of this app that I love is that you can use your voice to add a note and it will transcribe your recording for you, great if you have an idea you need to get down but can’t type it for whatever...

HP Sprocket 200 | Review

If you haven’t heard of a Sprocket before then let me explain a little about what it actually is. The Sprocket is a handheld printer, literally the size of your hand that prints out small polaroid style photos (the Sprocket 200 paper is 5×7.6 cm in size) using ZINK (zero-ink) paper which has a removable backing paper so that you can stick them down or you can leave the backing paper on and put them in a frame etc. There are a few different models, the original HP Sprocket, the HP...
