Not being able to load or save files or mount a USB thumb drive is a
deal-breaker for me as far as using my iPad for work. When I've taken
it traveling and had to do things like copy and paste between
applications I'm amazed at how awkward many basic tasks are. There's
something screwy about the WiFi connectivity, too, sometimes it won't
take valid passphrases that work fine with my phone. I did a
screen-capture video a while back and the hoops I had to jump through
were absurd.

I figured out how to do everything I need to do on my Android phone
years ago. Text selection works almost exactly like it does on my
iPad. It's difficult because the screen is so small but that's not an
OS issue.
