The iPad, it’s not a device for content creation, is it?
Ask many a tech pundit that question, and they’ll say, “No, it isn’t.” But, there’s a flaw in the opinion you’re receiving. You’re asking a writer if they can use the iPad to write professionally. That’s a little more specific a context than just “content” in general. Of course the writer’s answer will be “No”. They’re creations rely on words, on text, and it’s arguably easier to create text with a hardware keyboard than it is with a software one. Can it be done? Sure. I’ve written 1000+ word posts for iPad.AppStorm solely on my iPad. But it isn’t ideal.
The problem with the opinions of many a tech writer, is that they’re leaving out all of the other types of “content” we human beings can create. With its gorgeous 9.7” display, photographs look beautiful on the iPad, and there are some great photo development apps available. And while there’s nothing on par with Lightroom or Aperture currently, there’s nothing stopping someone from building an app of that caliber. Recently, with the introduction of iMovie for iPad and Garageband for iPad, we’ve seen just how wide open the possibilities are for the creation of a wide range of content.
Today we’re going to look at one of the stand-out apps in the art category. It’s another area that captured the imaginations of iPad users. With hardware this advanced, could someone finally create software that enabled an iPad to become the ultimate digital sketchbook? Autodesk has tried, bringing their legendary Sketchbook Pro franchise to iOS. Let’s see how well they’ve done.
