iPad in Graphic Design: actual usage
Most of my work I perform on MacBookPro, but also I have a retina-iPad device which I never use for any type of graphic design, thus I am looking for solution to the underuse of this costly device.
My question is: What actual design related tasks do you perform on iPads?
I am interested in actual usage and not in theoretical ("you can use it for xyz").
I sketch a great deal... Prefer Adobe Ideas, Sketchbook Pro, Layers apps, and Pencil for that.
I explore web site wireframes..... iMockups app.
I'll, on occasion, do a little coding (nothing complex though) ... Codea app.
I write notes... Draftpad app.
I explore color... MyPantone app.
I accept credit card payments.. Square Register app.
I track my projects and to do items... Priorities app.
I test responsive web design... Safari
I test epub files.... iBooks
iPad apps can have very great focused/niche purpose, the appsfollowing have made it into my workflow.
iDraw: geometric hands on designs with shapes, great for wireframing, on the go or in the office.
Sketchbook Pro: Great for painting.
Adobe Ideas: Sketching thumbs and production illustration.
Sprite Something: Go to for pixel art creation
I found a stylus was integral for using these apps, one that is designed for sketching. I use the Pogo Stylus Sketch Pro
