In the week that iPad 2 was launched Internationally, including here in the UK, this is what we were talking about
GarageBand: Flying A summery tune made in GarageBand for iPad and video shot on an iPod Touch.
Augmented reality, a natural fit for the iPad? An AR demonstration from Total Immersion using the new iPad 2.
We Want: Shenmue for iPad We put forward the case for bringing the Dreamcast classic and much loved series Shenmue to the iPad and provide 4 good reasons why the iPad is the perfect platform.
iPhoto for iPad, why we are sure that it's on its way and why it will be glorious The title says it all really, we've got some predictions for you.
Procreate - A Quick Look at a New and Unique iPad Painting App We take a look at the brand new iPad painting app which is already beginning to gain traction amongst the 'Fingerpainter' community. You should definitely check this out if you are thinking of buying Procreate.
Miniot Offers a Real Wood Smart-ish Cover Like we did for the original iPad, we will be keeping a close eye on the stand out cases and covers for iPad 2 and letting you know about the cool or unique ones we find, like this wooden version of the Smart Cover from Miniot.
Probably the cutest iPad painting so far! Using the aforementioned new app Procreate, one of our favourite iPad artists known as Olechka (Olga Shvartsur) has produced a very cute and very impressive image that we had to share.
We are huge fans of Olechka. Olga's iPad paintings have to be seen to be believed! Like any artist Olga knows how to get the best from the tools at hand. When painting with the iPad, 'tools' equals apps from the App Store. We have almost lost count of the amount of painting and illustration applications for the iPad, but amazingly each app has its own flavour, sometimes quite distinct from anything else available. This is certainly true of Procreate.
Olga makes it clear that 'Lilly' is a work in progress. Honestly, it's hard to see how it can be improved.
Inspirational work as always Olga, thank you for sharing it with us.

We first featured the work of Olechka (Olga Shvartsur) on Monday, since then Olga has posted another, and in our opinion even better, iPad/Brushes portrait. House M.D. (Hugh Laurie) is the subject this time around and the final iPad portrait is close to perfect. Check out the Olechka iPad art homepage to see for yourself. Great work!
Olga Shvartsur is a self-taught artist from the Seattle area with plenty of experience in painting and illustration work. Recently, Olga has turned her attention to the iPad and with great success! As the close up of the Angelina portrait shows Olga's skills have translated to the iPad marvellously.
Olga used Brushes and Brushes Viewer app to create and share this beautiful portrait. We look forward to seeing what Olga creates on the iPad next. Be sure to follow Olga on Twitter for news on her latest ideas and creations.
