All these years I have been trying to justify owning an iPad.
Sure, they are cool, but I could do most of things on my iPhone.
I thought I could use an iPad when iPhoto came out as my mobile processing station, but, alas, iPhoto for iPad just did not have enough functionality to replace my laptop with Aperture. And iOS 7 still does not have color management built in, so editing photos on unmanaged device is like playing catch in the dark – you might get lucky once in a while, but there will be no consistency.
So this is what I would like to see: a color managed iOS device that would be supported by X-Rite colorimeters (via USB), mobile Aperture, SD card slot for accessing raw files to be edited.
If iPad can not do it, I would wish for – a 11-12″ retina Macbook Air. But seriously, I need a productivity tool, not a gaming platform. For games I still prefer dedicated game pads and high quality games of Nintendo 3DS.
So there, I am still waiting for that killer photo app for iPad. C’mon Apple, you can do it, and free us from looming Adobe Opressive Cloud.
