The iPad is a tool with many uses. One of my main uses for it is a performance and composition tool when I’m not near my beloved desktop/MacBook. The iPad is surprisingly powerful when it comes to handling some of the tasks I have it do with regards to music, things that are probably quite CPU intensive.
There are thousands of apps out there that allow you to compose music, but I’m going to show you 10 of the greatest ways. These apps have all been of use to me at some point, and whether you’re a current producer or simply a production enthusiast, you’ll be able to get some use out of them too. (more…)

For me, the end of the finals always signified the wonderful opportunity to do better next year. I always vow to start studying earlier and prepare well in advance, so after finals season I find the best tools to help me study next year. I don’t want to go into the followthrough on my vows…
We’ve already seen 15 Essential iPad Apps For Students here on Appstorm, but I’d like to look at this from a different angle. There are an abundance of note taking apps, planning apps, organizers, and so on, but at the end of the day we have to sit down and learn things (terrible isn’t it?). Let’s look at some apps that can help with the learning process itself. (more…)
It is now summer! You now have a whole lot of free time, right? Free time in which to do something productive. How about learning a language?
Normally learning a language would require college courses and hiring expensive tutors; well since it’s 2012, it’s about time to push into the 21st century with some very innovative language learning iPad apps.
We have assembled 10 of our most amazing apps designed for iPad that will enable you to learn your favored language this summer. So put on your learning cap and pick up your iPad and lets start our international voyage together!
The iPad is a fantastic tool for the world of education. I have used mine to track assignments, take notes, record lectures, read and annotate textbooks, study for exams, do research and much more. Now that I have graduated, however, it is time to put my iPad to new use as I look into graduate school – studying for the GRE.
As I began my search for apps to utilize for this purpose, I began to wonder what kind of apps existed for all the various standardized tests that we might encounter. This round-up contains some of my findings – a list of some apps designed for specific tests as well as some apps for more general preparation. Read on to learn about some of the best apps that I found.
Today I thought I’d take a different approach to the trusty Roundup and share some awesome people to follow on Twitter for iOS, Apple, and technology insight! It can feel pretty daunting trying to find good people to to follow, like shopping for Oyster Sauce in the supermarket (I’m still recovering from that expedition), but have no fear, I’m here to help.
Twitter is an awesome place to find people who are really switched on and engage with them in a meaningful way, getting snippets of revelation, humour, and the daily trivia of people’s lives has never been so easy!
I enlisted the enthusiastic help of the AppStorm team to hone and refine this expansive list, we all hope you like it. My only word of advice: be ruthlessly selective, or prepare to be swallowed by a deluge of carefully chosen characters.
The iPad is a great tool for almost anything nowadays but one of the categories that app developers seemingly haven’t delved into is programming. Sure, there are plenty of HTML and Markdown editors out there on the App Store (Byword is a great example of one of these) but for creating iPad apps, you’ll either have to make do with what’s on the App Store or sit down and learn Xcode, which has a steep learning curve and requires plenty of additional knowledge, such as Objective-C.
But now, some smart Australian developer by the name of Simeon Nasilowski has come up with the brilliant idea of being able to program (simple) iPad apps – and all straight from your iPad. Codea (formerly known as Codify) is not only a simple way of designing your own iPad apps but also features plenty of built-in tools and tricks to help make your programming experience a lot more easier and, dare I say it, enjoyable.
Read on after the break for my thoughts.
Creativity is a wonderful thing. A part of what makes it fun is through finding daily inspiration in almost everything we do. Whether you’re making music, creating great new digital illustrations, or trying to think of new ideas for your next photo project, there will always come a time when you need that little extra push. Fortunately, the sky’s the limit when it comes to pushing your creative boundaries on the iPad, thanks to these unique apps.
Though today’s list may consist of a few content creation apps, it will also contain entertainment and reference apps that simply aim to light that spark from within. We hope you find something new! Read on for more.
Getting in shape is something a lot of people have trouble with. Not only that, but summer’s just around the corner, so it’s time to put down your TV remotes and pick up your iPads! Sometimes we want to exercise, but we just walk in the gym aimlessly, expecting to instantly lose weight and shape up with minimal effort. This is mainly due to lack of organisation.
In this roundup, I’m going to show you 10 great apps to help you achieve your ideal body and add some organisation into your workouts. Don’t just think you can use one app and get away with it; a combination of diet, exercise and rest is the only way to get those washboard abs (or at least a lack of stomach!)
