The ESSENTIAL Apps for My iPad Pro 2020! What’s on My iPad Pro?

by birtanpublished on October 5, 2020

The ipad pro is one of my favorite devices ever and i talk about it here on the channel all of the time but what are the apps like you can't have an ipad you can't have an iphone without all of the magical apps that you use so what are the magical apps that i use let's find out what's up everyone i'm the everyday dad if i can figure it out you can figure it out so i'm really excited about this a lot of you have asked in the comments for this video to see what i use on my ipad on a daily basis i

Say i use it on a daily basis what do i what do i actually how do i actually use it so today we're going to walk through all the apps that i use i have them broken down by a few different categories um to make sure that we're like there's a structure to this video and the first set that i really use are a lot of i use a lot of the standard apple apps the very first one being calendar so i use calendar as kind of like and i'm trying to get away from this but i use calendars like my do all everything so you can see i

Have all the videos scheduled out i try to have my videos scheduled out for at least a month but sometimes it doesn't work out that way and some of them will change like this calendar doesn't really count anymore because of an app that we'll talk about in a little bit but i've also kind of in this drives so since i hired somebody to like manage the administrative side of like this enterprise i have them shared on this calendar which is really awesome and you can easily share between the teams

Um but you see like all these ideas that i've kind of like thrown away they get a notification like every time i make a change the calendar so i feel sorry i apologize uh for all the craziness but no calendars it's very simple but it's very easy to use which is a lot of these apple apps and why i use them the next one is notes notes is kind of on its way out but i've been using it for a few years now so i want to talk about it here but just know that it's not really the thing that i'm using anymore so notes is another apple app that's very

Easy to share between people and it's just really like you type some notes but the whole team can see them you can also use your pencil to draw on these notes it's fine but it's not like the workflow that i would prefer and it's just kind of a pain in the butt like i'm not necessarily this is a reason that we're moving away from notes but if all you're doing is like typing between your team you're doing like checklists you're doing maybe like shotless notes can be do that perfectly fine you don't

Have to buy anything else you don't have to use anything else the included app works totally well this next one seems kind of weird and it doubly is so because it's not the only collaboration tool that i have on here but it's actually facetime facetime is actually way more powerful and way more usable than i think a lot of people give it credit for you can have up to 32 people in a single group facetime and if you have more than 32 people in a meeting nothing is getting done anyway so i think facetime especially if you're

Around people you're a team that uses apple products especially like the ipad this is crazy i know it's on the phones and i know it's on the macbooks but it's really a lot of these apps are great on either but when they come together on the ipad they are where they really shine and i think facetime is probably the best collaboration tool on here there will be more in like the next section imessage is another really important one imessage is kind of a divisive topic when you're talking about apple versus

Windows or android i like imessage just because of how easy it is to then share files across the team you can share photos you can share pictures very easily and you can share larger files than you could through like a standard text message it's kind of like a mini airdrop if you can be like right next to each other within wi-fi and bluetooth range airdrop totally totally legit but if you can't and you have to send everything through your wifi or through your cell

Service imessage is really close and it's close enough to get a lot of these little things especially like socials you're doing instagram picture edits or you're doing small stuff like that imessage can transfer the files and the last major apple app that i do uses i do use the email client i don't have another email app installed i like the standard email app it's very easy to organize all your emails you can track stuff you can label things how you want to do it you can send stuff to junk

It's very easy to block people because trust me if you're a social media person you'll get emails all of the time from brands or from just people that are begging you for stuff you don't necessarily want to see that all the time so you can very easily set up rules and ways to sort stuff that i appreciate a lot and it's already installed so we've moved on from like the boring day-to-day apps let's go to the cool apps that i think a lot of people are really here for and these are the creative apps that i use

Now there are three main creative apps that i use on my ipad you could use the photos app for basic like photo editing but i use the three apps that i use are lumafusion for video editing i use affinity photo for photo editing and i use procreate for just having fun but like lumafusions let's start off with lumia fusion for video editing this is the best like editing experience that you are going to get on a tablet period it can do almost everything that a more traditional like nle like final cut pro davinci resolver premiere can do

But it keeps it all on tablet size and you don't even need like you see that i've got the keyboard to help out like for this demonstration you don't really need a keyboard you don't really need the pencil to really interact with this it's designed to be interacted with with just the screen however if you do have a keyboard and a mouse becomes even better the cool thing about lumafusion and the way that it works with like the ipad is this is probably the best render experience you will ever

Have like it's better it's faster than my macbook pro it's faster than my imac pro it's faster than my windows machine this is if you're trying to cut and edit and render 4k video especially on the go lumafusion is a fantastic way to go there are a few problems it doesn't have scopes like waveform monitors vector scopes like it's hard to color grade in here you can do it but you have to eyeball it off of the screen which as screens are so different you really want to use the

Scopes to make your image as similar as possible across all devices they did just introduce a really cool thing in lumafusion which i've been asking for for a while but it's a way to like select multiple clips at the same time so see this like you can click and drag and select lots of things at one time you just have to click this little check box which is the enable multi selection you can see it brings up little brackets right here you just click and drag and you select

Everything in that space gary that's how all computers forever have operated but that's not how lumafusion has operated in the past you used to have click click click click click it was very it was not a very user friendly or smooth experience but i really like what they're doing luma touch that makes lumafusion is a company that has been listening to responses so hopefully we'll get scopes here soon affinity photo is like an actual pro level photo editor there are so many options inside of here

That i don't really understand them all and i've just been messing around with this just playing around with it and i have to use photoshop because there's just so many options inside of this thing like check this out when it loads you get access to everything you could want to change you can crop you can color pick flood fill paint brush erase you can set levels over here like you can edit raw photos affinity photo is crazy powerful and it's so powerful i am still in the messing around with its

Stage both of these two apps though are paid apps you don't get them for free but they are worth their value the last one that i really like which is a lot of fun is procreate it's like an illustrative tool that you can use we used to use them on the thumbnails here to get like cool like gary is great we use it as a way to like add text to thumbnails and this thing is just it is powerful and you can do all sorts of like you can do animations and stuff from here like this is just a fun tool like you

Get paint brushes to draw around with i mean i'm messing around with it right here but this is i am not a good drawer i'm not a good animator i'm very i'm not a good designer in any way shape or form but this i love this app so much fun it's so much fun and i'll just do drawings on it when i ever actually do drawings and it's really the only time i ever use the pencil the only reason i ever use this pencil is when i'm using procreate so those are the three like creative tools that i use

There are some premium productivity apps that i do want to talk about we've said we're moving away from notes we're moving away from some of the apple products just not that they're bad but i'm looking for a little more functionality and the big one that we're moving towards is notion now if you've seen any videos on notion notion looks like a crazy complicated tool that is impossible like people want i've like if you watch the videos people have like these databases that are insanely detailed and it looks like

You need a full-time person to do it so don't i haven't been using those it finally started to click with me in the last week when i started creating some of my own databases and ways to manage stuff so you can see again like i was using the apple calendar to manage my video ideas now i actually have a database called video ideas and you can do a couple of things here that i really like one you can have a list view where i just go and i type hey these are all the video ideas i have if i want if i have an idea

I just really quickly will go in here we'll set up the template you can see we've got new it brings up the new video template i can type in the title i can type in if we have a sponsor for the video when i want to project it when i think i'm going to have it go live i can assign it to me or my partner but they always go to me since i'm the video production side of the house i also add notes in the description on like what's the story gonna be what do i think the idea of the video is going to end up being the last real step

On here is i will put in the projected date and that is when i've locked in that this is an idea that i want to actually create so then you go back to the video view here you go to the calendar view then you can click and you can see what video we're talking about so what's on my ipad what's on my ipad is it's a tagged by ipad we don't have a sponsor for this video we have what i think the title is going to be i don't the title is always kind of like a work in progress and even after i've uploaded

A video sometimes the title will change we can see that i'm assigned to it and we talk about my favorite apps this is really how i'm going to take my ideas from this sounds like a good idea and then through a process turn it into a video that you're watching you can set up all sorts of other stuff we're also using this for our weekly meetings we have a weekly meeting and when we talk about the next week of content we'll have instagram ideas i'm not exactly sure how the instagram works yet so

More to follow in the instagram ideas but what's really nice is you can set up things like the sponsor list so i've created this list of all the things that like a sponsor that we have on this channel needs from us we have deliverables but in these video ideas if i take it and i put in so let's see here what's on my ipad if i go into the sponsor category it automatically will load from that shared database that i have in its relation so i don't have to like create it every time you can create

Databases that have links to each other and that's where when you start seeing that happen that's where notion makes sense before that it doesn't make sense at all i have a few others on here that i don't really use all that much i have one note that we're considering using to replace notes but notions kind of taken over that something that i don't like is lots of steps when you don't need them i think onenote is very powerful it's much more easy to use than apple notes it's much easier to

Collaborate with your team with onenote because you can share it across multiple devices you don't just have to use apple you can also share to windows i don't know i don't like adding extra steps and i think anything we would make in onenote we would have to then transcode or copy and paste over into notion because notion is kind of like the master file so we're playing around with it i'm not sure we're actually going to use it yet the other big set that i do use is the google suite so i use google docs for

All of my scripts like you can even see right now we're using a google doc to talk about all the apps that i want to talk about today but i have all of my scripts i write everything in google docs so that it's always saved to the cloud i don't have to then buy another word processing software so i use it when i use a windows machine i use google docs when i use my ipad i use google docs macbook pros google docs i use google docs for everything man saying google now sounds weird but i use this for everything

Every written thing like scripts sponsor reads everything goes into google docs and that way also the team can log in here and see what we're working on and if we need to share files we use google drive which is much better because again we're kind of getting split because the video editing machine is kind of turning into a windows machine and sometimes i'll need something from the team or i'll need something from my ipad or my iphone i can't just airdrop it to windows

Unfortunately so we use google drive which is pretty much it's kind of the same thing it's not as seamless it's not as quick but it's okay so google drive and google docs we could not run this youtube channel without either of those now a couple other things everybody and especially when you're dealing with outside agencies or you're dealing with brands they're not always on apple and they're not always on idevices so sometimes you're going to need to collaborate on

Different tools and the big ones are if you've worked in the professional sphere in any way shape or forms you know microsoft teams and you know webex from cisco and those are the big those are collaborations tools i actually really like teams teams is something that if we didn't use apple products here and we were only windows we'd probably pay for a team's license here because it does a lot of things it's a calendar that you can schedule events and meetings around it's a chat functionality so you can chat amongst

Your team and it has file sharing it has like teams where you can set other people from outside organizations into a teams i really really like microsoft teams we don't use as much because we don't need it as much webex i don't really like webex that much it's just a video chat functionality for people that don't have facetime i'm telling you facetime is amazing webex is a necessity from time to time but it's not all that let's talk about socials probably the social app that i use most

Often if you follow me in any of them is twitter i spend way too much time on the twitter app but it is an app that i absolutely use every single day for way too long at a time each day if you want to get a hold of me twitter is the best way to do so also another big app that i'm always on is the youtube creators app it lets you see your channel it lets you see your comments very easily sometimes it crashes and it's not always as functional as i'd like there are some things that you can get

On like the web browser that you can't get here on the studio app but it does a good enough job it tells you like your watch minutes it tells you how your videos are doing it tells you the last videos shows you comment and that's really what you need to run a youtube channel if you really want to dive into your analytics though you will need to go to like a more traditional computer but it works and then we very recently started live streaming over on our facebook page

So i do have the facebook page manager up too so i can respond to comments and interact with everybody because that's going to be our live presence um from the future you'll notice we do not have instagram on here because i do not like using instagram that's what i have an administrative person for part of their job is instagram because i just don't like it and we're not all boring here sometimes we want a game so we have one of my favorite games of all time i like if i want to play a game for a little

Bit on my ipad there's a soul there's so many games out there but i just play a little bit of star wars knights of the old republic a little bit of kotor we can't have that open because that's going to be copyrighted music but that's the game that i play so these are all of the apps that are on my ipad this is how the everyday dad operates from both a me getting work done making these videos planning out the videos sometimes processing the videos to collaborating with the team to make sure that the rest of the

Invoicing the emails all of that stuff happens too the ipad does all of it this thing is such a powerful tool and the apps are really what makes it as good as it is and you're thinking yourself gary okay the ipad is great but how has it held up in the last four months since you bought it when it was initially announced how is it held up well thank goodness i got a video for you viewer you can click right here to watch it click click click click click click click thanks for watching
