iPad apps I’d like to see…
I have had an iPad now for about 6 weeks. I think. TBI (Time Before iPad) is a little vague. How did I ever stay calm on a flight from Brisbane to Perth before I had this thing?
Wondrous as it is, I thought, when I let my imagination free, I thought that there were still some apps that were missing from the app store:
- etch-a-sketch – no wait, a few people have done that;
- a tunable tuning fork – I showed the middle C tuning fork app to my low-tech acoustic musician friends and when they stopped laughing, their first question was – “how do I change pitch?”. It’s been done – http://www.apptism.com/apps/stay-in-tune
- OK, how about a Terry Pratchett app – nobody would have thought of that – http://download.cnet.com/Terry-Pratchett-The-Pocket-Essential-Guide-for-iPad/3000-2125_4-75183693.html;
- hmmm – a T-shirt designer? Nah – too many good sketch apps fill this niche;
- a twitcher’s diary – really – http://www.appolicious.com/tech/apps/232206-twitcher-edgeware-technology-ltd;
- but does it do aromatherapy – oh seriously – http://www.medlmobile.com/index.php?page=viewapp&appId=5;
- an atlas of tropical skin diseases – eeeuwww – http://www.medlmobile.com/index.php?page=viewapp&appId=5;
- a general aviation flight planner – http://www.medlmobile.com/index.php?page=viewapp&appId=5;
- a 3D polygon modeller – uh-oh, this exercise is starting to get expensive – http://www.lostpencil.com/?page_id=76;
But not EVERYTHING is in the iTunes store – here are some app gapps begging to be filled:
- a trainspotter’s diary;
- a patchwork quilt pattern designer.
Knock yourselves out, appers….if I had an iMac, I might try it myself.
