I Need Your iPad App Recommendations

I just got a new iPad 2 and I am looking for your App recommendations. I know there are a ton of really cool specialty App’s out there so I want your help in finding them.

Also I want to put a list of “Production” apps that church should put on the iPad’s for live production or for content creation.

Here are a few specific apps I am looking for help finding:

  • Google Docs – I need a way to create docs with our internet then sync when I have a connection.
  • Extra Monitor – Use the iPad as a 2nd display for our Macbook pro or a 3rd monitor for my windows desktop.
  • Music Creation – I am musician, so I would like to be able to create music on the go or at home in my spare time.
  • Remote Controls – For everything from ProPresenter to digital consoles.

Plus anything else you love, including games, productivity apps, document sharing, ect…

Leave a Comment below and let me know your favorites!

I'm a church media guy and I love my teleprompt+ app. Especially since I used to use and old macbook and monitor setup. You can open up scripts directly from your google docs or dropbox; and you can use your iphone as a remote. It's a great time and space saver.


Flipboard is great for RSS reading in a magazine style format. Check it out. http://flipboard.com/


Blogging: Blogsy | http://blogsyapp.com/
RSS: Reeder for iPad | http://reederapp.com/ipad/
Extra Display for Mac: AirDisplay | http://avatron.com/apps/air-display

Also, I agree with Clay, Dropbox is awesome!


Mocha VNC Lite (Limited Free)
Mocha RDP Lite (Limited Free)
PocketCloud (Limited Free)

I use these for any combination of machines and servers, wonderful tool to have. Makes it much easier to be in more than one place at a time. All are very functional apps, it's ultimately which one works best for you; personally I like PocketCloud as it's RDP and VNC, however the free version only allows for one client to be saved at a time.

As was mentioned before, Flipboard is awesome.


YO, hope these are the droids you’re looking for….

(but not “androids”…..)

Documents to go Premium has some amazing cloud support for not only google docs, but Box.net, Dropbox, MobileMe iDisk and SugarSync:

I’ve heard really good stuff about Air Display for extending your display to Mac or PC: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/air-display/id3681

Mixed, but mostly good things about all the Adobe iPad apps for use with CS5.5 stuff:

Easel for finger painting MAGIC


Color lava is like a kuler remote for photoshop.


Nav for remote tool selection


The apple remote app is my goto for apple tv and iTunes control

ProPresenter Apps of course! EPIC:

My church has a Yamaha MC7L sound board, there an app for that too, but it only works for that board:


The planning center app isn’t worth it in my opinion because it’s the mobile website in an app.

Check Out:



USA Today (free news and free crosswords, if you’re into those things)

flipboard (turns your social media into a magazine of sorts, really awesome)

Adobe Ideas (quick doodles n sketches, for freeeeeee)

Infinity Blade (amazing graphics, fun gameplay)

Angry Birds (nuff said)


Creative Content App:
iMotion HD; fun prosumer app for making on the fly stop motion movies using iPads camera. The paid version ($1.99) allows export (YouTube, iTunes, and others).

Reading/Docs App:
Goodreader; Haven't played with this app as much as I would like but it's got some great built in features for document viewing. Maybe hidden somewhere in there is a way to access Google created docs as well, not sure.

External Monitor/Remote Control Apps:
Air Display; I don't have it on mine but I have heard some good things about using this app as an external monitor. I think it's just Mac based though.


I would highly recommend Wunderlist for your iPad and Mac. Its a free to-do list app that syncs between your devices. You can even share lists with other ppl. Also Bamboo Paper is a sick note taking app.


For apps for ministry, take a look at http://www.ipadinministry.com thanks


To Do: Omni Focus – heavy pricetag but its is by far the best out there. worth it!!!!
Music: Beatmaker 2, Soundcloud
Video production: iprompt – its free!
drawing / visual ideas: procreate – much better than adobe ideas, and i think its cheaper too
Inspiration: TED
Bible: Glo Bible
Blogging: WordPress!!!
Other: Dictionary.com, Skype, Stupid
thats it for now


I use Remote HD to control my Mac using my iPhone. Not sure what the experience is like on an iPad.


I find myself daily using :
Penultimate – note taking and light storyboarding
Feedly (integrates well with Chrome and Rockmelt)
Sketchbook Pro

And then i use Rowmote (http://regularrateandrhythm.com/apps/rowmote-pro/) to control all kinds of stuff. It's an iPhone app but loads well on to the iPad.


evernote is a great one as you can track ideas on all platforms from mac to pc/androids. so very helpful all accross the board


Also recommend Evernote. There are various apps for different platforms. Plus their web clipper is cross – browser which means that it works on various browsers. This makes it easy to get information into Evernote.
