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.
