Summer is here and travel season is already in full gear. If you are taking your iPad, there are a few apps you should not do without when traveling. Traveling can be complex, especially for novices. When the time comes, it’s best to be prepared and arm yourself with time savers, life savers, and fun savers.

Keeping up with flight information, booking accommodations, exchange rates, and other hassles can all be alleviated by your iPad. So be sure to pack it when you go traveling. Use the apps in this roundup as your secret arsenal to pull out whenever you need information.


Photography is a form of art especially close to my heart. It’s something I enjoy immensely, and something that I’ve always thought would be perfectly suited to the iPad. There has always been a vibrant community surrounding iPhone photography, and some truly great apps have appeared to help with editing and organizing your photos.

But what about where the iPad’s concerned? The iPad 2 has a camera, but it isn’t of the same quality as the iPhone’s. There’s the optional Camera Connector Kit, to import photos from your camera via an SD card or a USB cable too. That’s really what we’re going to be focusing on today.

Unlike the iPhone, where it’s both the photo capture and photo editing device, the iPad really only excels at the one aspect: photo editing. I mean seriously, are you going to be waving a 10″ tablet device around, taking snapshots on vacation? No, didn’t think so.

Let’s dig into what the options are for editing and organizing photos on the iPad, and where iOS developers still have room to grow and improve.


I’m a huge Douglas Adams fan. And by that I mean, I love The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.

I also mean that a small part of me feels a twinge of sadness when Douglas Adams and the iPad cross paths in my mind. Simply because I hold in my hands the closest thing to the fabled Guide that our world has yet seen.

And so it is with great honor that I riff off of Mr. Adams, and present to you my Guide to the iPad for Hitchhikers.
