It is a valid question nowadays: Can my iPhone replace my computer? It used to be: Can my iPad replace my desktop? That is easy to do especially by being able to whip out a Bluetooth keyboard for easy word processing and typing.
But, an iPhone is more accessible, portable and convenient to use as your everyday gadget. Yes, you can use an iPad mini as your desktop replacement, but you don’t stick it in your pants pocket all the time like your iPhone.
The answer here lies all in your typing ability along with a little patience.
The patience part pertains to finding the app that is identical or closely mimics your desktop program. For instance,
Microsoft Word on your desktop is closely resembled by GoDocs and other pseudo-Word programs. I am actually blogging right now through the mobile app version of WordPress.
This take me to my first point of typing ability – if you can type effortlessly on your iPhone, then you’re golden. If not, you can get by with a Bluetooth keyboard although you’ll look a bit goofy.
It will benefit you to have at least a 32GB storage unit and you’ll need to save your stuff to Dropbox or another cloud service. Then, through a little bit of a learning curve, you can use your iPhone as your replacement computer.
