The iPhone ushered in an era of beautiful interface design unlike anything we’d ever seen on a mobile device. This trend is now being revived and pushed further than ever on the iPad’s larger screen and the results are amazing.
We’ve combed through the App Store to bring you 30 iPad apps with gorgeous interfaces. Keep in mind that the screenshots rarely do the apps justice and that you really should try a few out for yourself.
How would you like to use your iPad as a second (or third) display for your Mac? Now, how would you like to get a glimpse into what it would be like to experience OS X apps on a touchscreen? Finally, what would you say to using your iPad to draw in Photoshop and Illustrator just like a Wacom Cintiq?
If you answered “heck yes!” to any of these questions, read on to see how to make this dream a reality using only a single app!
Having recently moved out of the family house, I’m experiencing independence like I’ve never felt it before; one of the things I like to do with this new-found freedom is cook.
Some of my friends believe that food is nothing more than fuel, and should not be romanticized; but if you are like me and believe that cooking is an art, not a chore, you’ll want to keep reading and find out about how you can get kitchen inspiration on your iPad, with Gourmet Live.
About a year ago a new task manager hit the iPhone. It was incredibly pretty, functional and played well with iCal’s tasks. 2do quickly rose in the charts of the Appstore and thanks to its continuing development established a solid user base among those in need of a task management app.
When the iPad was released, it seemed only natural that 2do should become an universal app. It has taken GuidedWays a couple of months, but the result is not just visually pleasing, but extends the core functionality of the app. I have reviewed 2do for the iPhone; follow me beyond the jump to see how it’s performing on the iPad.
The Apple App Store has revolutionized the mobile phone industry, and in the process, created dozens of copycats and changed the way people purchase software. But with all of the different pricing options, what really designates value? What makes a free app worth the download and an expensive app with lots of value too pricey? To find out, we decided to dig a little deeper.
iOS is a beautifully simple operating system. However, its simplicity is also one of its major downfalls. For instance, the lack of a Finder can make for some troubling file management problems: What do you do when someone mails you a zipped file? Where can you store, view, copy, and share important documents?
The iOS geniuses at Readdle have a solution to these problems and more in their new app PDF Expert, available for both iPhone and iPad. Today we’ll be going over the excellent iPad version and I guarantee many of you will find it to be an essential piece of software.
In this week’s poll question, we want to know what you think of the reading experience on your iPad, whether through iBooks or a third party app like Stanza.
Though the iPad is anything but a simple reading device, it has been touted as a direct competitor to more dedicated readers like the Kindle and Nook. Obviously, the biggest competitor to these new-age digital readers is the beloved paperback.
So what do you think? Are e-readers a significant improvement over old school paper and ink? Is the iPad the best experience among these devices or is it the Kindle or some other competitor?
