Anybody tried Photoshop Touch for the iPad 2 yet?
That does look very interesting I have to say...
The Android version came out last year and it's supposed to be pretty good, albeit a bit fiddly:
Shame this thread isn't about androids then, eh?
It's about the same app that's just been released on iOS, so I would have thought a video showing how it will work on that platform would be rather informative.
The Ed 3 step thread derail plan revealed:
1. Make seemingly innocent Android comment on an Apple related thread
2. Play the innocent when called on the above implying the caller is stupid
3. When step 2 is pointed out either a) flounce or b) go mental accusing everyone else of having a problem for five pages
I have a Photoshop app for the ipad 2 - I got it when I was travelling and had to edit and send some photos off to a client. The whole process was a piece of piss. Yes there is a dongle for the sd card, but it takes one second to connect and the user interface is effortless. For some of the tasks I have to do for work (screen-grabbing and editing hundreds of images from the web and from pdfs to make market reports), it's *much* faster on the ipad than on my laptop. Which I didn't expect. It also means I can do a tedious task lounging around on a sofa or in an airport. Which is ace.
Evi - a British 'better than Siri' clone:
However you'll have to move fast to try it, it would seem, as a certain company appear to be ready to pull it in a bit of a hissy fit:
Seems to work (for me). Summarised the weather today and found the nearest pub.
I can't say I've been impressed with it at all: it seems to spend most of its time telling you it can't find what you're looking for. I found it even worse than Siri (and that is saying something!), but it'll be truly pathetic if Apple throw it out of their app store just for offering an alternative.
Just about all of the similar programs (on multiple platforms) can usually manage to get the weather right, btw!
Now supposedly Apple are working with the authors of Evi to 'avoid confusion with Siri'.
Perhaps they could just market each as 'shit' and 'not-so-shit' to distinguish them, in the light of this thread...
You'd have to be on some pretty special drugs to confuse Evi with Siri.
Who needs drugs when one can have the reality distortion field?
Well without wishing to derail this thread anymore (thought it was a suggestions thread not another debate Apple's crappy policies thread) I think it's crap they have a policy like this at all. I understand it from a business pov but as a consumer I want choice and competition in the app store...
Absolutely. Strange they don't get worked up about the hordes of note taking, clock, weather or stock app clones in the app store, eh?
The most used app in our place is GT Racing, it's also the reason I can never use the ipad. Grr!
Demon Cam from Videocopilot is clever fun, my daughter was freaking her grandma out with it at the weekend.
Anyone using Voxer?
Quite fun and kinda useful. Probably other things that do the same but it seems pretty robust.
(If you can't be arsed to clicky, it basically turns your phone into a walkie talkie....vocal text messages)
eta..Not actually vocal text messages ( at me) , but sending voicemail like you would a text, if that makes sense. Really useful when you can't text but can blurt out a quick message
Sounds interesting...will check out.
