Attention IPad Users! What are your favorite apps that you use for blogging, social networking, art, photography...etc?
This new app "Blogsy" looks promising! If it really does all it says it should, then I will be jumping for joy! I'm wondering if anyone out there reading this also uses their iPad for blogging and other day to day tasks.
One of the really cool things I do with mine, regarding making art, is to use it when I come to a standstill on a painting. If I'm afraid of messing it up, or am stuck and don't know what to do next, I take a picture with my iPad, upload it into an art app, like Artrage, or Sketchbook and add to it within the app. That way, if I "ruin" it I can simply delete the layer that I added, and start again. I can try out multiple ideas, come up with something I like and then have confidence continuing on with the real project. I love that I can do this! Here is an example...in this painting "Urban Dreams" I came to a point where I knew I liked parts of the painting, but hated others and was afraid to continue for fear of destroying the whole thing. I uploaded it into Artrage, created a new layer and started painting away, deleting, and experimenting until I came up with something I really liked. Then I was able to come up with something I knew would look good and began painting it onto the canvas.
Another way I use my iPad is to use the various photography apps. I'll upload a picture of a piece of finished art, and use various filters, frames and effects to embellish it in a variety of ways. I would really love hearing what apps you like to use. There are so many out there! I used photo lab pro to make this...
Here is another question for you, does anyone use their iPad for making videos, or video tutorials? That is something I would LOVE to do! Taking pictures and video with a camera and then uploading and editing on the computer is SOOOOOO time consuming! Is there a better way?
Well, I guess that's about it for this test blog post. Thanks for visiting!
