The thirty apps above should go a long way towards filling your iPad with apps close enough to being work related that you can probably count them as tax deductions.

  • http://www.finaldraftdesign.com Reginald Dupree

    Great list…some that I didn’t even know existed.

    One you may have forgotten about is FTP on the Go Pro.
    And you may even want to mention WordPress?

    • http://www.vaporizerkits.com Zephyr Ion

      I love WordPress, the best blogging platform I’ve used!

  • http://Www.Twitter.com/tylorskory Tylor Skory

    Taska is by far my favorite ToDo list for the iPad. And don’t forget about the code editor Gusto (better than Markup, in my opinion). Great list!

  • http://www.finaldraftdesign.com Reginald Dupree

    Oh, and GoodReader is also pretty useful for some many reasons!

  • Andrew Miller

    Great list – I’d add Omnigraffle for wireframes.

  • http://jaypegams.com jaype

    you missed gusto ! a brilliant app for editing website on the go !

  • John

    I love Computer Arts and Computer Arts Projects. Why aren’t they available digitally in the US!?! I’ve been reading Digital Artist on my iPhone for months!

  • http://varvestudios.com Mark Hilverda

    Excellent roundup…a couple new ones I will be checking out. I’d also put a vote in for GoodReader. The Zinio app has also come a long way since it originally launched and I enjoy a couple design mags via that app. LogMeIn Ignition has been indispensable for me a couple times when I really needed to get a couple things done on my primary desktop machine while on the road.

    You may want to add Draft for iPad from 37signals – http://37signals.com/svn/posts/2420-launch-draft-for-ipad

  • http://www.pixelrockit.com Bartosz Oczujda

    There are some useful apps in this roundup, but I just cant get rid of the feeling that the whole “design on an ipad” fashion is just a gimmick.

    Are these apps really “Essential”? I don’t think so.

    Just ask yourself how many times are you going to design something on the iPad? I don’t see any use for those apps apart from the situation where I’d have to do something really fast when I’m outside the office, and this happens once or twice a year…

    Are you going to design or code websites on your iPad?? Lay out website wireframes? Draw on the iPad? I will definitely not use my iPad for those things. It’s just uncomfortable… Mac/Pc with a mouse or touchpad is much more suited to do this kind of jobs.

    So tu sum up I think that these apps have their very limited uses, but designing on the iPad is just too uncomfortable for me…

    • Decoverse

      I want to design and build anywhere, anytime. I’m not passing judgment, but you seem to be thinking of working in the traditional sense of being at your desk. Many tools are not powerful enough to finish the design, but if I can capture my ideas quickly while fresh, then that works for me.

      Often I break away from the office and just head to a good coffee house where I can relax and brainstorm. I get a lot of concepts going, even outline a plan, and do a little research. Save it all to a cloud so I can complete it when I am at my desk. In some cases, I can finish everything on the iPad. But you’ve got to change the “way” you work to be able to make it work. imho

      • Billrey

        I agree – I love doing notes and making design sketches on the iPad. Because it is less ‘computer-like’ it feels much less intimidating to me than opening up the Adobe CS suite on my Macbook Pro, and its much more useful than scribbling things on paper – I can instantly email sketches and ideas to anyone.

      • lynda

        Gee — nobody else does that whole “work at the coffee house thing.” Ha! Just giving you grief back. But you’re both right. It doesn’t matter where, it’s how you design, right? What’s a must for me is speed. I’m in Austin and went with 4G LTE and can’t wait ’til AT&T comes out with 5G!

  • Oyvind Hoie

    Great list, but I can’t believe that you have left out Evernote (http://www.evernote.com/). It is a great note-taking app with a beautiful interface on the iPad – and it syncs my notes between my iPad, iPhone and all my macs and pc’s.

    • http://www.aura99.co.uk Stu – Aura 99 Web Design

    Whiteboard HD & Whitenote together do the job quite wel of sketching concepts and documenting them well, often assisted by PhotoPad to quickly crop or rotate pictures used, sometimes by Whiteboard Pro (for drawing/sketching together on the same board). WhiteNote can save to dropbox and googledocs and import pictures and pdf’s from dropbox and the picture library. I find the connectedness essential to kep your creative efforts save…

    A quick note to let you know I’ve just released Brief Buddy, the world’s first creative brief cracking app.

    Available right now for iOS and Android here: http://www.briefbuddy.com
    In short the app is something that you keep handy for thought starters and inspiration when you’re trying to crack a brief, hence the name ‘Brief Buddy’. Think of it as a creative partner in your pocket.

    The app consists of a number of creative brief cracking techniques, these techniques are unique approaches in which you can solve a brief, and accompanying each of these techniques are also examples of creative executions that use the techniques.

    Also featured in the app is a ‘Tips from the pros’ section; this section consists of short brief cracking tips written by top industry creatives. These tips, insightful and often humorous came from my colleagues in the industry, some of which you may know.

    We also shot a fun viral spot to promote the app, check it out on YouTube here:

    Hi, I am a fashion designer. I used to sketch out designs the old fashioned way, using paper and pencil. I always found the computer aided design software on desktop to have a steep learnng curve and not very intuitive. When the iPad came along, I thought that it could be a great tool. Which of these (or other) apps would be good for fashion design? Which of them would be easy/easier to learn, is intuitive, and would be as close to paper and pencil? Thank you.

    Things for iPad is my favourite. I use it as well on iPhone and my iMac. It’s simple and to add tasks or jobs to invoice is done in seconds. It’s one of the few apps I use daily at work.

    Dear friends,
    As this is a post on creative apps, I thought I’d ask about Ideas Flux – the new app I developed for iPad and iPhone. It’s a platform for creative ideas on different topics, with more idea list available either free or as in-app purchases. I can add more idea lists for user to add to the app on the device.
    Ideas Flux app on appstore – https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/ideas-flux/id590222422?mt=8

    I’d appreciate feedback on the app, as well as suggestions for more idea list topics.
    Thanks,
    Amir
