Since I am the proud new owner of the new iPad 3G I’m testing the blog application I downloaded from the app store to blog from my iPad. I have the cool new iDock so typing from an actual keyboard instead of the touchscreen. It’s the ultimate. No more laptop for me. Thank you Steve Jobs. This is truly a brilliant way to work. My husband and I were watching a movie on it while eating dinner at the kitchen table reflecting upon how utterly 2001 it all was… and I don’t mean the year. But where are our jet packs? seriously. Yeah, I know they make them now, but you can’t train on them in the United States, and I doubt they license them. But, aside from that I feel a bit like Judy Jetson.
And these apps for photos and video on the iPad… S.I.C.K. I love it. I think I’m going to ditch the idea that film photography is still the best way to produce work now. It’s all about iPhone/iPad and once I get the connector strip for a digi cam I’ll just do all my editing right on my iPad, produce an iPad book of iPhone/Pad photography and be set with it all. I may never get on my real computer again. (I’m joking of course.) I’m just in love with Apple right now. Oh yes, I bit the Apple. Gladly. Give me MORE. What’s Steve going to come up with next?
I’m still waiting (im)patiently for the photo book app. Why isn’t it here yet? Someone hurry up and make the application for designing a book directly on the iPad/iPhone and do it quick. My foot is continuing to tap… tap… tap… tap. I know exactly how to design it. Someone hire me to do it so I can hurry up and make an iPhone book without getting on my computer.
And I’m going to call out Hipstamatic one more time for having a faulty application. Folks, you can’t upload the pictures from your application from the photo library on the iPhone. Just tried using this application to upload an image taken with Hipstamatic and it ruined the entire post and I had to start all over again. Your app is so faulty that iPad won’t even allow it to sync to the device. It takes some really cool images, but it’s plainly obvious that none of you Hipstamatic developers really give a _ _ _ _ that people can actually show the pictures. What? We’re just supposed to show people our iPhones? Or post to Flickr or Facebook as something suitable? Come on!
OK – end rant… but GRRRRRR. I’ll post a photo taken of Cindy Lou Who’s house by another more friendly app called Cinemafx. Download it and start playing all you iPhoneographers.
