Default Impressive iPad painting

It was only a year or so ago that plenty of people on here laughed at me for suggesting the iPad could be used for creative content. Oh well.

I actually use my iPad for a lot of wireframing and also some coding, it won't replace my iMac or Macbook but it's pretty useful for doing some basic stuff.

Nice bit of photo realism

What are you using for coding? I use Diet Coda but just for very basic stuff. Hopefully they'll add GIT support at some point.

Same, Diet Coda, just for quick, live FTP edits.

It'd be nice to have GIT and Sublime Text, it'd make the iPad a nice alternative for quick 'couch coding' sessions.

Good choice. If it would sync with Coda on my Mac that would be nice as well, on the way apparently.

If you jailbreak your iPad you can, it would allow you to create a symlink to the .conf.

I've synced via dropbox so whichever device I work from saves to dropbox and they all use that same .conf file.

The only thing that annoys me with Diet Coda & Coda2 is that if you're working on a file and are using Diet Coda for 'air preview', it only works with .html files.

Bloody useless for PHP or Rails.

Air Preview is a bit of a waste of space.

Yep, unless you only work in .html, even then, if you're building something responsive you'll only see the iPad version, not allowing you to see anything else.

I don't think they'll add PHP/Ruby/Rails support anyway, as that'd require it to have a built in server capable of compiling whatever language you throw at it.

Oh well.

Yeah but that magnifying bar makes up for all the shortcomings.

Why in **** would someone paint a picture of a tablet computer? Couldn't they think of something a bit more interesting, like a landscape or a bowl of fruit?

Give a banana and a chalkboard to a talented artist and see if it's better or worse.

Very good. What it demonstrates more is a very good artist. Impressive nevertheless (but that's coming from someone who's stickmen are about as realistic as it gets! )

Good demonstration of how good that app is in the right hands but then there is always someone who can do impressive art on some of the packages out there.

There was a bloke on here using a chisel on a piece of wood for more than 200 hours.

People 'minecraft' for 1000's of hours.

This fella has talent and has good tools.
