I recently reviewed a new stylus (see GoSmart review here), so figured I would swing back and repost on some of the drawing apps I used in the review. I also wanted to cover a unique "self-drawing" app created by Eric Hayes (an MIT math wiz and artist) called Set Paint Go. In this drawing roundup: Grafio, a very powerful diagramming and drawing toolset with a highly capable Lite version; Illustrator, another simple editor that can help you produce great looking graphics in like 2 seconds. I also have a few quick tips for when app crashes occur on older hardware, since I have been having some issues with an aging gadget...
I never had a piano lesson, even though we had a piano in the house, growing up. That piano collected dust and was more useful as a piece of furniture to display picture frames on. I always wished I had more initiative and learned to play.
But today, thanks to the magic that is the Piano Apprentice from ION Audio
, I actually learned how to play the melody from The Entertainer! And it just took about 30 minutes! The Piano Apprentice is a creative combination of a physical piano keyboard, and a free app with several lessons included, and tight integration between the software and hardware.
is really not the typical stylus your grandfather used (though it might resemble a sort of drafting instrument). It is substantially more, in point of fact. An ingenious twist of simple engineering applied to the challenge of drawing or writing on the iPad screen in a natural, tactile manner. As a former weather guy, I used to spend hours hunched over first paper charts (waaay back) and then later a computer screen/drawing tablet... mostly just drawing lines (always lines of equal something or other). In the bad old days, drawing on a computer screen was an act more akin to connecting the dots using a drawing puck (on a tablet surface), and the whole experience was frustrating, jerky, often producing an erroneous result. If I would have had an iPad and a GoSmart stylus, I would have relished the task! It might have helped me forecast the weather better as well--ok, joking aside, the GoSmart is a stylus worthy of it's name...read on to learn why you will want this one.
Was able to check out 3 new handy utilities this week, and the new so-called Chrome for iOS browser, which is the Safari engine in a Chrome-like wrapper with a few added features that help if you are already drinking the Goog kool-aid. I have come to rely heavily on Safari, and IMO, Chrome mobile did not impress at all. About the only thing I liked was being able to get to my bookmarks, but it performed too chaotically to be useful. Also in this post, I cover some handy lightweight remote control apps (PC HUD and OFF) that let you monitor, stop or restart a PC or Mac from your iDevice, and a really decent calc/notepad app (CalcTape) for running accounting tallies and similar number-crunching tasks. As a bonus, I'll round up 3 of my fav free utilities at the end! Perfect end to a review roundup...
Artists, designers, planners, writers, creative entrepreneurs! You know this feeling: you’re at the grocery store in the produce section when suddenly a brilliant idea hits you! You’ve come up with “it” the one big idea that is going to change everything.
I was going to write an enthusiastic review of the new iOS game The Dark Knight Rises. I'll share that with you at another time.
In light of the recent theater massacre, I'd like to offer a moment of virtual silence, in a forum usually devoted to words. My heart extends towards all of you affected by the recent events in Colorado, and I offer my prayers to the families of everyone involved. May eveyone find solace, may everyone find peace.
has thrown the gaming industry a loop, by combining the increasingly popular touchscreen interface with real world, physical elements for a whole new form of hands-on gameplay. This shouldn't be a surprise, as AppGear
is part of WowWee, the people who brought robotics to the toy box.
