USE IFILES FOR EASY FILE TRANSFERS WITHOUT ITUNES

 If you have ever wanted to do a quick transfer to your iPad when you cannot, or don't want to, use iTunes, iFiles is a great tool.

iFiles interfaces with popular cloud services like Drop Box and Google Docs. But what I like the most is how easy it is to get files onto my iPad via a wireless connection.

Week of the iPad cut short

The week of the iPad was a big goal of mine and the one factor I was relying on to make this happen (my laptop being used by someone else) went away on Tuesday night. Then I had the outside force of my wife asking me to design her something for the baby and I just couldn’t do it anymore. I opened the laptop, hit the power button and the week of the iPad was cut short.

Meeting Notes merging Technology and Paper

As many of my future posts will mention I am BIG believer of utilizing a Digital Task Management Software and prescribing to a good Note Taking Process.

These are my current products of choice:

Things – electronic task management software for desktop, iPad, and iPhone
Moleskine – notepads that look and feel great
Sharpie Fine Point Pens – best combination of the ink of a Sharpie marker and the size of a pen
As Media Pastor at The Ark Church I find myself in a lot of meetings. In every meeting, either creative brainstorm or department head review, lots of information gets passed around. Much of it is data I need to know to operate a department and some of it is actionable items for me or my team to get done.

My top 5 iPad apps

I am attempting this week to abandon the simple luxuries of my 15 inch MacBook Pro and only use my iPad. I forced myself into this by willingly offering my laptop up as a loaner to our designer while hers is in the shop (yes, Apple products sometimes need a tune up). It has become an exciting challenge that even after a day has had it’s moments of doubt.

As Media Pastor (with a hint of designer) I find myself relying on my laptop to run the big applications like Photoshop, Illustrator, Coda, Dreamweaver, etc. But if those applications were not a must for me, could I operate solely from my iPad?

iPad Keynote Presentation Recipe

Rituals are sometimes a Very Good Thing. Here’s one for showing a presentation with your iPad. I posted this mostly for my own sake, should I run into an unfriendly projector and suddenly panic. I know for certain this formula works – well, at least with an InFocus LP70+ projector.

Deleting Files From Your iPad

Most things you need to do on the iPad are pretty easy to figure out.  In fact, Apple has a lot to say about how apps should be designed so that the user’s experience is an easy and enjoyable one. While I’ve found that Apple does tend to practice what it preaches (at least 80% of the time) in regard to good user interface design, I have one beef:  deleting files.
