My Homescreen: April 2015

Most of the inter­est has been on my iPad this month since there are a few addi­tions there and only one change on my iPhone.

Scan­bot — I’ve recent­ly begun using my iPhone to scan my shop­ping receipts and con­se­quent­ly Scan­bot has found itself pro­mot­ed to my home­screen in place of the no longer need­ed Right­move app from last month.

Tweet­bot — Despite the fact that it’s still not been updat­ed to the iOS7/8 aes­thet­ic, it’s abil­i­ty to sync with my Mac and iPhone has forced me to bring it back to my iPad. I sim­ply have too any hash­tags mut­ed in Tweet­bot on my iPhone that not hav­ing it on my iPad was dri­ving me nuts.
Adobe Comp — Adobe have been busy late­ly and have updat­ed and intro­duced a new app. Lead­ing the way is this new one, which seems to final­ly bring the kind of func­tion­al­i­ty to the iPad that I’ve been look­ing for. Since Adobe updat­ed InDe­sign CC a cou­ple of months back to intro­duce Cre­ative Cloud Libraries I’ve begun use the exten­sive­ly and I expect this new apps role in my design process to grow as a result of that.
Adobe Col­or — I’ve had this on my phone for a while, but a recent project had me sit­ting back in my chair with a cup of tea cre­at­ing some pos­si­ble colour schemes on my iPad. Again it’s inte­gra­tion with the oth­er Cre­ative Cloud apps is the killer fea­ture.
Cre­ative­Cloud — Since I start­ed my Cre­ative Cloud license I’ve been mak­ing use of the 20GB of space I paid for to house my projects. The iOS app was always lack­ing though, but a recent update has improved it and joy of joys, I can now view mul­ti­page doc­u­ments in the app.
When Cre­ative Cloud was announced I was annoyed, I liked own­ing my soft­ware, espe­cial­ly when my liveli­hood is depen­dant on it, but I’ve been real­ly impressed with the recent updates. Adobe have real­ly stepped up their game in this regard and there’s no greater proof of that than the grow­ing use of their apps beyond the Mac in my design process.
