Yes, they really are..but who’s to blame?
I think Apple is the only one responsible, because the iPad is clearly not designed to run full desktop creative software. And it won’t happen any soon — Tim Cook made it clear. This is why I feel that the iPad Pro is a fancy but dull product. Creatives out there try to explore new ways to improve their workflow and end up collecting tools they really don’t need, and that’s the sad part. Why an iPad Pro when you got a Surface? Why a Surface book when you got a Macbook Pro? Why selling your Wacom Cintiq for an iPad Pro? The choices we take for the sake of mobility sometimes don’t make sense. The best advice: make art with what you have right now, because you’ll never get the perfect tool anyway.
