There is no question about it, the iPad is a revolutionary device. That being said, I thought it would be a good idea to share a list of my top 10 favorite iPad apps for creative folks like yourself.
( Note: It will actually be more like 10ish. Creative folks like myself have a tough time with hard and fast rules. Top 10 just sounds cooler than top 8 or 12. Also, this is a living document and I will update it a couple times a year. When I do, I’ll post the updates via our various social outlets, so make sure to follow, like, or circle HOSSedia.com )
There isn’t a better all in one photo editing app out there. Snapseed is what I like to refer to my desert island app. Wilson and I would be perfectly content with this one. You can read my full review of Snapseed here.
It’s hard for me to brainstorm within the confines of a text editor. Sometimes I like to sketch my ideas down. I use Sketch Book to do everything from generating outlines to documenting lighting diagrams. Maybe even the occasional doodle.
Evernote is the nerve center of my creativity. I keep everything from packing lists and travel docs to full fledged creative brainstorms. Heck, I even wrote all the content for my book ‘Big World Little Lens – The Complete Guide to iPhone Photography‘ using Evernote.
Skitch allows you to quickly share your ideas with others. Plus, since it is an Evernote product it easily integrates with your creativity nerve center.
There is no such thing as bad weather, just bad gear. Before you head out on a creative adventure, make sure to check the weather and prepare yourself accordingly. Peepometer is the coolest way to get your weather. Also, if you sign up for a free account you can sync your custom locations across all your iOS devices! Peepometer actually warned me of tornado…yep, I headed right to the basement.
Stuck On Earth
This is the coolest way to plan your next adventure. You can easily swipe your way around a map to discover awesome sights close to where you are going to visit and save them for later review. It’s free ‘creative reconnaissance’.

If a band called Spatula doesn’t spell garage band I don’t know what does. Yes, yes I played in Spatula all through high school. I still continue to play and record. Many of backing tracks for my movies are all created on GarageBand.
