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.
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
