I’ve decided to become more efficient. Yes, there, I said it. I came to this conclusion yesterday, when I realised that I have 4 different online diaries, 6 different email accounts and my moleskin diary which is where I actually keep all of my information but never carry it with me.
Therefore, I decided that I want to try and start streamlining my work processes, using my iPad a lot more to ease consumption of content on my journey in to work, make life simpler when I’m there and be able to easily continue work/blogging when I get home. So I asked you crazy bunch for your recommendations for your favourite iPad apps and this is what you recommended:
Softsign – great for signing documents such as contracts, timesheets and expense claims.
Notablity – Take Notes & Annotate PDFs with Dropbox & Google Drive Sync. KAPOW!
AlienBlue – Reddit client that makes the most of the beautiful, yes I said beautiful, touchscreen.
Evernote – Write note, tasks, save files and share across multiple devices. Seamlessly synced.
Then some extra ones that I personally use:
Feedly – Great RSS reader for catching up on your favourite sites and blogs on your commute
Pinterest – Everyone loves Pinterest. With it being so visual, it works really nicely and can be great for wasting a good few hours.
TV Catchup – Watch live TV in bed on your iPad. What? It’s almost Christmas! It’s cold. Bed is allowed.
Pocket – Awesome bookmarking tool for content that you find online and want to catch up with at a later date.
WordPress – It’s all about blogging on the go.
Photoshop Express – Vastly cheaper than the full Photoshop package and whilst it doesn’t contain all of the features, it is good for the basics.
Spotify – For music in the bath. Obvs.
COD Zombies – Not easy at all to control with the touchscreen, but sometimes you just need to game.
The main thing that I adore about having the iPad is the ability to keep up with all of my favourite blogs when I’m busy during the day. Being able to save RSS feeds offline or articles to Pocket is fantastic. The only issue being that I always forget to sync before I leave the house in the morning. I’m waiting for the day they push content at the beginning and end of the day 😉
If you’re looking for a regular source of iPad reviews, iPad today is really good. I just prefer personal recommendations from you cheeky chaps.
I’d love to hear your app recommendations, so feel free to leave a comment.
Much Tuesday love,
