Visual Design On the iPad

Professional-level apps for the serious artist and designer

The work of iPad screen artists is absolutely stunning; it's hard to believe that such imagery was created with a finger, an iPad, and a few apps.

We all have some experience using our fingers as a drawing tool. Our first introduction may have been fing er paints, poster boards or even drawing on wet sand. As we hone and refine our talent, we extend our skills with pencils, makers and brushes. Reverting back to finger drawing can be uncomfortable at first, but our early instincts quickly resurface, and even the most stubborn of us end up embracing the iPad's touch interphase.

iPad art apps usually fall into two categories: amateur and professional. Let's take a look at the best professional-level, visual design apps on the iPad.

JailbreakMe 3.0 for iPad 2 Released.....


Free at last!!!!  JailbreakMe 3.0 has been released for the iPad 2 running firmware 4.3.3. Comex finally finished the jailbreak and released it for the public.  I think this jailbreak has been in demand more than any in the past.  Maybe, it was due to having to wait for it to be released.   I think with each firmware, developers at Apple have become more aware of how jailbreaks are done and the holes hackers use to perform the jailbreak. It’s making every jailbreak that much harder to accomplish. 

Free apps to aid your movie-going


I don't usually go to movies, but while on vacation in June I had the urge. So naturally I turned to my iPad. I downloaded Movies by Flixster (free) and was astonished at how useful it was. It immediately identified my location and gave me at a glance everything I needed to know: showtimes,how well liked, links to reviews, and a map to the theater. I really wanted to see a 3-D movie, but the reception for Green Lantern wasn't so hot. I ended up seeing Super 8.
