What I have on my iPad Pro

Okay my friends. I promised you an overview of my iPad apps and here we go.
I am totally smitten with my iPad. I have the rosegold 9.7" version with the Apple Pencil.
Today I bought the Apple Smart Keyboard and I am actually typing this blogpost on my iPad.
The keyboard is amazing. Very easy to connect thanks to the smart connector (it's not connected
with bluetooth) and all in all a very pretty little thing.
Here's a picture of what it looks like.

Right now I'm using the app Blog Manager which came up first when I searched for blog in the app store. Very handy. I just started using it and I am very impressed. It feels like I am just typing away on my MacBook. Amazing!
And now on to the apps.
My daily go to app is Procreate. I practice lettering on it and draw anything that comes to mind. I downloaded practice sheets from Dawn Nicole Designs blog and saved them on my Dropbox. From there it's easy to import them in Procreate.
If you want to know how to do that there are lots of tutorials on the web. For starters search for procreate tutorial on Pinterest. I've found lots of awesome tutorials on Skillshare where you can get a free 2 month trial right now. Search for procreate and you'll find the tutorials.
Graphic is another awesome app I use often. It's by Autodesk and looks and works just like Adobe Illustrator. A couple of times I created something in Procreate and brought it over to Graphic to add text. Like this one.

I made the drawing in Procreate, saved it to my camera roll from where I opened it in Graphic. There I added the text. I also saved it as a shape to use again.
Here is a screenshot of Procreate.

And here is a screenshot of Graphic.

This is the shape tool.

I'm thinking about getting Graphic for my MacBook too because I really like how easy it is to use. On Skillshare there is a tutorial series by Samantha Wilson. Look her up she's awesome.
Tomorrow i'll continue with the apps I have. I'm off to try out some new ones. God bless friends!
