iPad on Set - Creative uses for the iPad

This short video from Vincent Laforet shows how the iPad can help Creatives do their job by simply offering a place for collecting all those bits of paper, resources and Internet connectivity in one, fairly lightweight device with a big enough screen to make documents, photographs and illustrations useable, whilst remaining mobile.

As Vincent says in the video, these things carried separately in their 'analogue' form are easy to lose or misplace, but with the iPad, it is always there (or downloadable) when he needs it.  Although we have just discovered it on Vimeo, this video is from a few months ago so there are probably any number of apps that Vincent now uses to assist his workflow, and the pace of new app development is picking up fast as more and more people get their iPads, providing good future prospects for the device.

Over to you

What about you?  Have you seen or heard any good examples of how Creatives are using their iPads to help them in their activities?  We would love to hear from you in the comments.

i'm a radio producer and simply having pages on the go has really helped my work. for example last week i was producing a monday morning show. while traveling to the office on the sunday a guest pulled out, i was able to amend the script/running order and all paperwork before i even got there.

i've quite a long commute to work and i find myself getting more done on the bus than i do in the office. if we could now get an audio editing package (adobe audition lite?!?!?!) then it would be amazing

James - thank you for your comment. One of our team uses their train commute in a similar way to get work done on the iPad.

Not sure what level of audio editing you need, but have you seen Snipster for iPad? Designed for radio and other audio 'snips', looks ok but may be too basic for your needs. Another 'studio' option is Caster, includes waveform editing. They are not Audition Lite though, that would be great.

As an art teacher I have found that my iPad has allowed me to be more fluid in dealing with students. I can call up any number of images to clarify a point of discussion, zoom in on the details and even compare two images. Using one of my drawing apps, i can demonstrate most techniques right on the screen and can also display to the whole class if necessary. Making notes on the go is amazingly easy to do.
