My beautiful iPad arrived for my 23rd birthday (thanks Mum and Dad!) and I love it. I haven’t been so excited about a new toy since I got my Animal Hospital pet ambulance aged six.
But now what do I do with it? Besides making the odd video, Fruit Ninja-ing my way to a repetitive strain injury and cradling it to sleep at night…
Obviously I have discovered the iMovie app but other than that, how else should I be using my iPad as a journalist?
I’m an Apple virgin (unless an ancient iPod nano counts) so any ideas about great apps to download and crafty ways to use my iPad would be much appreciated.
Shall I tell you some of the stuff I’m looking for, to kick things off?
- The best Twitter client – especially one that can be used for multiple accounts
- I do love iMovie, but any other great apps for video and audio editing
- Bookmarking and note-taking apps, such as Evernote
- The sleekest newspaper and magazine iPad subscriptions
- Plus anything else you think every journalist should be doing with their iPad!
Suggestions via Twitter, Facebook or the comments will be received with deep gratitude.
Love, your clueless Postgrad!
