Creativity on the iPad

by on September 3rd, 2010

Forecast the future, or the weather, and more, on your iPad.

Last week I wrote about some of the many iPad apps that help you be productive (Portable Productivity on the iPad). That article concentrated on serious-type apps — word processing, spreadsheets, remote computer management, and the like. To herald the last long weekend of summer, let’s have a bit of fun this time and look at some apps that will have you flying an airplane, catching up on the news, listening to tunes, cooking gourmet meals, laughing at comics and even divining the future.

Like last time, this piece was originally written for the online Vancouver Observer, and is the second part of a two-part series on how you can be both productive and creative with the iPad.

Tuesday, I’m heading back to school for the second year of my PhD program at Simon Fraser University. I’ve been trying out various note-taking and scheduling apps to see which ones will help me in the courses I’m taking and the ones I’m teaching, so next week I’ll give my first impressions of the iPad as a tool for graduate students.

In the meantime, Happy Labour Day everybody and here’s the link to my Observer piece on iPad creativity: www.vancouverobserver.com/blogs/megabytes/2010/08/15/ipad-depth

    Hey Terry, nice post. I’m looking forward to what you might suggest for graduate students; I’m a grad student as well, and one of the reasons I picked up an iPad (and fell in love with it), is because I thought it would make my university life a little easier or less cluttered. I have a couple apps that help me out, but I’m sure there’s many more out there I haven’t even come across yet.
