I'm sure we had an ios topic before but damned if I can find it.
So having just got a hand me down ipad 2 from my brother I'm trawling the app store more and that is such a phenomenal place full of amazing shit buried under piles of poop. Ive had my jaw drop several times playing around with stuff. Mainly the music stuff, christ, I've payed hundreds of pounds for things that I can almost fully emulate in a sub £10 (usually sub £5) app.Musicy stuffsAudiobus
Blew my mind when I first used it on iphone because its such a gamechanger. Basically it lets multiple apps talk to each other. A synth app can output directly into a daw recording app for example. Or a daw can output to an effects processor app and loop back to the daw. Its just amazing. So much so that Apple has basically ripped it off and built in "inter-app audio" (iaa) into IOS7 for free though not as many support iaa as audiobus but more and more support it as time goes on.Nanostudio
Another baby Reason though more focused on synths. Also hella
An incredible modular workstation that could tread or Reasons toes. Even the free app gives you access to an impressive amount of modules. It doesnt support iaa as an output though, which is a little unfortunate though it does support it as an input (midi and audio). I can see why but I would still like to output to a daw.Sunvox
A synth that lets you customise the sound by way of a cuircuit system. You can route the sound through different filters and effects, split the sound and send it through two completely different paths with so many options. Its so damn intuitive and fun.
...DAW in your pocket. Not a shitty one either.... you could concievably do an entire professional sounding album on a phone/tablet. The 3 grand I dropped on a music PC 8 years ago can now be done on a 400quid handheld
....and thats just a few. I'm going to spend so much money on this stuff! It was great on iphone but that extra ipad screen real estate takes it to the next level of ohshitwow.GamesesFTL
Man, how good does this feel with touch? I was worried it would be too finicky but theyve done an amazing job.Hearthstone
Good but a bit footery. The UI isnt terribly well designed or intuitive but once you get past that its real good.Greed Corp HD
I just love this game and its fab on every format.... and its only 69p!Distant Star
A full little 4X game. Deep enough for a mobile game without being too deep. I hear Starbase Orion is Master Of Orion in all but name though.....Other stuffsGoogle Play Music
Its still awesome. Upload 2000 tracks and get them anywhere. Free.Flipboard
The big screen makes this quite enjoyable. When you have time to kill its a nice way to hit random news on interesting topics. Looks damn pretty too.
I never thought I would like using an ipad so much. Ive had two android tabs before this and in comparison, droid is pish. I'm using it more to browse the web and just leaving the laptop off more and more. I'm actually tempted to buy an Air now
Tell me about your awesome apps! Its so hard to find stuff in that app store
