Decided to get get the iPad Pro 2018 1TB WiFi
I ordered this unit and will receive it in a couple of days. I decided to go with this unit since it was one of the most recommended devices for digital painting.
I initially considered Wacom’s Mobile Studio Pro 16 but saw how it still has Paralax and Wacom’s stubby pen design makes using the titlt function feel unnatural.
So now that I own an iOS device once again after more than a decade(iPod Touch 2nd Gen), I’m looking for some Apps that will be useful for my intended use for this device. Also looking for some answers.
-Aside from Procreate, any other softwares I can consider?
-Any good software for 2D animation?
-Any recommendations for a versatile Movie Player app? Something that can play a lot of movie file formats. Especially MKV files and properly load multiple audio tracks and subtitle tracks properly. In android I use MXPlayer which has been pretty solid.
-Do I still need to go through iTunes to place my music files? Does this support FLAC or is it only resistricted to ALAC?
-Is Jailbreaking still a thing or is it from what I’ve understood, dead for years. Not really a big deal if it is dead but I would love to do some customization. Even on Android, google has been restricting vital Apps from working on a rooted device which becomes a hassle.
-What is a good durable case to prevent bending? Something not too thick like an Otterbox on phones. Just something that can “help” reinforce the known weakness.
I’ll be honest here. I don’t like Apple’s restrictive nature when it comes to their devices. It’s the reason I went Android for a long time since there’s a ton of stuff you can do with most android devices. Even unrooted, an Android device still has a lot of variety for function. But it’s a compromise I am willing to take to be able to use one of the superb tablets I’ve seen for digital drawing.
I still think Apple be damned for switching the iPad to USB C and not allowing a lot of Generic USB devices to work with it. Including a generic USB Mass Storage. Nor did the execution of the headphone jack was needed on a device this big.
So the most important question. Are there any work around to viewing files for USB-C external hard drives? If there isn’t, has Apple responded to this baffling limitation?
It’s a no brainier that this functionality should be existing in this day and age especially for “Pro” product lines. Accessing files on my Android Phones(LGv20, Note 9/Note 3) to offload huge files quickly has been so convenient. Cloud is another way of backup but I consider it as a backup of a primary backup.
Sorry for long winded post. Thought it’d be appropriate to get some ideas here. I appreciate any tips and feedback regarding iOS.
