Paper

Another day, another revolutionary iPad app. Paper (Free with $8 add-on) is an absolutely beautiful app for creating anything you would normally do on real paper — you know, stuff like storyboarding your indie film, general note taking, sketching a nude model, or painting a watercolor landscape of the prison yard. You can create unlimited Moleskine-esque journals to store all of your masterpieces. So if you want to sketch, write, draw, outline, and color, you've found the most elegant app for doing so yet. Oh, and it was made by the touchy-feely folks at Microsoft who developed the failed Courier notebook thing. So... yay?

P.S. It's time to buy a stylus. Either the Cosmonaut or Bamboo or Jot Pro.

  • Anthm

    Leverage the vast library of Rdio to power your next party soundtrack using Anthm (Free). This unique app lets everyone at your kegger fancy soiree add songs to the playlist, and vote songs up or down to affect their play order. It's like iTunes' DJ feature, without the limitations of your '70s pop-oriented music collection. [Scouted by Sean]

  • Adobe Photoshop Touch

    Your iPad 2 just got a little more useful. Apparently aware that Photoshop Express wasn't getting it done for a lot of us, Adobe's upped the editing ante with Photoshop Touch ($10). Also available for the 400 or so Android tablets sold so far, it brings desktop features like layers, selection tools, advanced adjustments, and filters to the tablet, along with plenty of other tricks like the Scribble Selection tool, integrated Google Image Search, and Facebook sharing. Yes, its max resolution of 1600 x 1600 is pretty pathetic given the size of images we deal with these days, but for images that you're planning on sharing via the web or email, it's more than enough.
