We wanted to see how people are using the iPad, and how that use has evolved over the last three years.So we ran a reader survey. We got 2,242 responses which we have gathered here as a series of charts.
Surprisingly, the way people use the iPad hasn’t evolved significantly. The use case for the first iPad remains the same as the new iPad.
What does that mean? Apple nailed the iPad on the first try. It knew what it was doing. It also means developers have an opportunity to develop new applications that can change how and why we use an iPad.
As much as things have stayed the same, there are a few notable trends and changes. We have included comparison charts where appropriate to reflect the usage changes. If we didn’t include the comparison charts it’s because there was no significant variance in this survey as compared to the past.
