FL Studio’s move to iOS was unexpected, but their mobile music production suite has really got a lot to offer for when you’re away from your beloved desktop and you have an idea that you just have to get down. FL Studio Mobile HD allows you not just to input ideas, but develop them into fully-fledged songs with a suprising level of complexity.

I’m what you could call an FL Studio power user, so I felt right at home using it’s younger brother to compose ideas that I could immediately touch up on the desktop version.

Have you ever wished you knew how to edit videos, but didn’t have the time and money to learn? Maybe in the past you’ve found yourself thinking about how you could combine all those home movies to embarrass your kid at their graduation party.

So, even if you have no experience with video editing hopefully by the end of this article you’ll be able to edit like a pro. If you haven’t bought the app yet I would suggest getting it so you can follow along. Let’s get started!

I’ve spoken before about how the iPad can be used to increase productivity, and today I want to go a step beyond that and outline two different ways that the iPad can become essential to anyone’s workflow.

One way is fairly common, and the other might be something that you haven’t heard of before. Hopefully you’ll learn something either way and will find the iPad becoming less (or more) of a toy. Let’s get cracking.
