iPad art and other content creation is not a passing fad. It gets bigger and bigger

iPad Art

Why iPad art is more than a passing fad — though you soon might smell it - Cult of Mac | Nicole Martinelli

Apps are a fundamental part of art-making on the iPad and Vishwakarma says popular ones like SketchBook Pro, ArtRage and Procreate make up the brushes and turpentine of the digital art set. Judges also noticed a few artists working outside the box.

The iPad makes it possible to be creative thanks to all the professional and great Apps that is available in the App Store.

Vishwakarma is an iPad art advocate whose work has been featured at the first Mobile Art Festival in Los Angeles, Apple stores and Macworld. He also teaches free workshops to promote iPad art and animation to kids, teens and adults. His next workshop is July 30 at the Apple Store in downtown San Francisco.

Personally I'm a iPad content creation advocate too. Not only art is possible todo on the iPad.

“I am really inspired by all the creativity around iPad,” he says, noting that this year’s MDAC Summit offers sessions on iPad animation, 3-D sculpting and printing, illustration and ebook creation. “It’s a powerful tool for creation.

I create music, photo art, video editing and content creation, and of course also highly advanced blogging directly on the iPad.

And the best thing is that it's both fun and easy to do. No hassle at all with the right Apps. As you may know by now, the iPad is my main environment now and I haven't used a computer for 7 months. No need for it. It's all the professional Apps that makes everything possible. Hardware and specs isn't the most important, the app Eco system and the developers is. And nothing beats the iPad when it comes to that.

Kinomatic - another iPhone app that makes a difference

Kinomatic for iPhone is another awesome video editing app that makes a difference. iOS has a lot of these incredible content creation Apps. This is why I switched back to iOS from Android. No other reason really. It's important to me to have professional apps and Kinomatic is just one app of a a lot of other professional Apps for iOS.

The only thing I think is bad with Kinomatic is that you can't share to YouTube directly from the app. You have to save it to the camera roll first. But maybe that will come in an update.
