The newly refreshed Macbook Air is the best laptop Apple has ever devised for students. Even the lowest end model, with its paltry (by current standards) 2GB of RAM, would be fine for most students I know. Add the Air’s ridiculously fast SSD into the mix, and you’ve got a seriously slick machine.
But wait, what other Apple product is impossibly thin, has flash-based storage, and is super fast? The iPad, of course.
In many ways, the iPad seems unstoppable: its stable of professional, beautifully designed apps grows by the day, its iOS operating system gets more efficient and productive with every update, and its hardware is way ahead of competitors.
At half the price of the MacBook Air, the iPad suddenly seems like a more than capable option for a cash-strapped student. But could it really serve as a student’s only computer?
Today’s interview is with Justin Brock of Ginger Labs, the makers of Notability. We’ll learn a little about the Ginger Labs team and what motivates them!
We love the developers that produce the amazing software we review, and hopefully this will be a great way for you to meet the names and faces behind the apps that you use every day!
I hope you enjoy it!
When it comes to taking notes, there are several different options for your iPad, including some big names such as OmniOutliner and Evernote. But what if there was a note taking app that could also record messages, while providing a clean interface that was easy to navigate?
Well that’s the plan here with Notability, an app that acts like a notebook for your iPad, complete with custom images, recordings and everything else you could hope for. But is it all that or does it try to pack too much into one app? Let’s find out after the break.
