What’s on my IPad…

8 Jan

 
Hey you guys I just thought I would repost a video that I uploaded to my YouTube channel back in August.  It’s just me running down what I had on my iPad back then at the time.  I have since sold that iPad and gotten myself an iPad 2. Just thought I would share.  I need to shoot another one again real soon.  That’s all for now.  

Blogsy

4 Jan
I am trying to determine the format for this blog.  How informative do I want it to be and just how much devotion do I want to give to it.  I could definitely use it to review apps.  Trust me I could definitely be an app reviewer. I download and try a lot of apps.  But to what level of commitment do I want want to give that?  

Let’s try this…right now I am using this new app that I downloaded this weekend to write this blog.  Blogsy is the name of this app.  This app allows you to post to multiple blogs.  Blogger, WordPress and Posterous are the sites that you currently can post blogs to but you are able to add multiple pages from each.  Right now I have my 2 WordPress blogs and my Blogger blog attached to the app.  I even was able to repost a blog to another blog directly from the app itself.  The app also has a lot of text and font options for it as well.  Once you link you Flickr and/or Picasa account to it you can upload pictures that you can then drag and drop into a post right from the sidebar of the app.  You can also do the same with photos on your device and photos that you have in WordPress upload.  You can add and share media from YouTube as well.  You can link ppl to your other sites or share sites using google search and safari.  And at just $5, it is quite an affordable app for what it does.  I highly recommend this app if you have an IOS device and are a blogger. 

 

Well I hope you guys enjoyed my little improptu review.  I will probably do more of this in the future, so stay with me and be patient with me as well.  I might not blog as much here a lot but I will not forget you guys. It’s a new blog for me so in the beginning it might be slow coming but just know its coming.  Until the next geeks…

Tech -to- Art

So I couldn’t decide on whether or not I wanted to do an actual post this week or do a video.  I decided to just let you know what’s on my mind via letters. So for right now I am going to “Occupy” your eyes;) I picked up my new IPad this week and right out the gate I was amazed with it.  It was as advertised.  Lightweight and fast.  Zooooooommmmm.  I have had some processor unfriendly apps on my first gen iPad that when ever I opened them they would immediately crash.  Even ones that weren’t as powerful would crash.  I can remember always having to open safari back up because it crashed; what a pain!  Sketchbook Pro, was at times extremely unusable.  I could probably get in about 5 minutes in with it and it would crash.  Very frustrating “don’t you know!”  I was using it a few hours ago on my iPad 2 and no problems whatsoever.  At some point I am going to purchase iMovie and begin to do some video editing.  So look for some cool little things by way of video from me in the future.  But enough about my tech obsession.   
Next week I will finally take a vacation this year.  Its been a long year. I am not going anywhere so it will be a “staycation”.  I plan on catching up on some reading, some movies that I have stockpiled and also making some art.  I was telling one of my co-workers how I am going to try and do a lot of drawing next week.  I have been getting a little lax and rusty lately there when it comes to drawing, so what better time then a staycation then to make it happen.  I am actually pretty excited about my week to come.  I should have a lot to talk to you guys about next week.  Probably if I can too bored and feel like I have too much time on my hands, I might end up blogging earlier than usual.  In any event, I look forward to sharing with you guys.
