everything-changes-ipad-apps-1Apple has posted falling iPad sales for five straight quarters. While the iPad remains far and away the world”s best-selling tablet brand and platform, Apple isn”t taking the declines sitting down and has launched a new marketing campaign, Everything Changes with iPad, in order to stem if not turn around iPad sales declines.

The Everything Changes with iPad campaign is anchored by a new television ad (below) and the Change Everything series of webpages that detail the many ways the iPad has changed people”s lives. Quite naturally, Everything Changes with iPad is underscored by the “There”s an app for that” mantra that continues to drive Apple”s mobile strategy:

How new? Last Fall”s Pixelmator for iPad, named by Apple as an “App of the Year” and part of my mobile blogging toolkit, isn”t found on the above list.

What iPad apps have changed everything for you?

  1. I’m a heavy iPad user but I don’t use any of the apps on this list. But that’s ok. I notice that Apple doesn’t include any of their own apps here like Pages or Keynote.

    I like NoteSuite for note taking because it uses iCloud to sync with the companion app on my Mac. The folder organization is nice and it exports PDFs.

    Cortex Cam is great for taking noise free (almost) pictures. It averages a large number of images to greatly reduce grain.

    Remote Files Free lets me browse connected devices on my home network and download files to the iPad. I download a PDF of our local paper with my MBP and save it to a USB drive attached to our AirPort Extreme. From there everyone in the house has access to that file with this app.

    Primzo provides very high quality OCR in up to 40 languages. This is the best OCR I’ve come across. I can photograph articles with my iPhone (better camera) and process them on the iPad to produce searchable PDFs. It uses iCloud so I can capture with the iPhone app and the result appears on my iPad app.

    iDraw is a very nice vector drawing app that has a companion app on the Mac. It uses iCloud. I use it to make dimensioned drawings of home projects.

    Sketchbook Pro is a really nice drawing app. I’m not at all artistic so I use it to annotate pictures and such. One guilty pleasure I have is to clip the crossword out of the newspaper PDF and load it into this app for solving. I like the analog feel of drawing my own letters. I put them in a separate layer so they are easy to erase.

    I want to try the Homestyler Interior design app. Looks interesting.

  2. You’re right — Apple isn’t even schlepping their own code. And, Pages et al are best in class apps!
