Today's video is sponsored by the new paper-like 2.0 which makes writing or drawing with any Apple pencil on any iPad feel more like paper hey it's Chris and here's a shocker I've been loving my twelve point nine inch 20/20 iPad pro who would have guessed that but look in this video I want to share with you guys some of the great Pro apps that I have found these for from me I consider them pro with my workflow and helping me get work done that I found that have been making my 20/20 iPad pro experience phenomenal so I've made this video before I like a year ago and this is kind of a follow-up that one was really popular got over 800,000 views and it's still climbing I'll link it up down below if you're new around here because it has some great suggestions but some things have changed there are new apps that I'm using and there are some apps that I'm not using anymore and so I want to kind of go through all of that another thing that's different in this video from the one I did a year ago is that I'd reached out on Twitter and I said hey guys tell me some of your favorite Pro apps for the iPad pro and even if I don't cover all of them I'm gonna link some of those up down below so you have a whole list to explore now in the previous version of this video here's what I said so what makes an app particularly suited to the iPad pro well probably some combination of utilizing the Apple pencil requiring more processing power or making great use of this screen well the second gen apple pencil with its always charged and never lost magnetic connection is still the best Apple pencil experience there is and I still haven't personally come across any app that can push this processor yes even the a 12 Z to its limit and yeah the twelve point nine inch still has the biggest best screen of any iPad which is arguably the best for writing and drawing for multitasking because you can seriously fit a ton more than you can on the 11 inch and even for use as an external display for your Mac using sidecar plus since the last time I made this video we now have trackpad and mouse support on iPads and has just made a world of difference it's taken the iPad which I already love just to a whole new level I loved it before I was basically addicted to the iPad but now it's just it's ridiculous Oh in that light our scanner that's new and I've got an app for that that I'm gonna be talking about later as well now in the last video I specifically mentioned procreate for sketching darkroom for raw photo editing affinity photo as a Photoshop replacement and those.

What are the most useful gems to use in Rails?
RubyGems were developed to simplify and accelerate the stages of the application creation deployment and library connection. Utilizing this package manager for Ruby saves you time as you get ready-made solutions to almost any task instead of writing the functions from scratch. Each gem contains a particular element of functionality including all related files. Unfortunately they aren structured in any way so in order to find ruby gems it better to use a regular search engine and the required key words (check GitHub s ). Our dedicated development team also actively employs Ruby Gems in the process of software development. Here is the top of the most popular and useful ruby gems according to our experience GeoCoder s . Being able to connect through itself over 4 APIs this Ruby gem implements both the direct and reverse geocoding by IP address geographical coordinates and even real physical addresses (e.g. the address of the street). Bullet s . The most downloaded Ruby gems out there. It was initially created with an intention to boost software performance. It does so by decreasing the total amount of client-server requests. Basically Bullet tracks the N+1 cases of requests and notifies the developer when other tools can be used instead (e.g. cache counter). Pry s . We rmend to simplify the bug fixing procedures for your RoR-based application with the Pry gem which is a more advanced alternative to the standard IRB wrapper. ActiveModelSerializers s (which starts lagging while processingpound documents) and uses caching. Fast JSON API s . Fast JSON API wille in handy when you need fast serialization of software code. It works much faster than Wicked PDF s . This gem is working alongside with wkhtmltopdf s and helps realizing an interaction with the DSL generator. Devise Masquerade s .

Money Rails s . If you are planning to integrate your app with Ruby Money this gem wille in quite handy. Pundit s . A tool that allows defining different levels of access to the app functionality according to the rights of an authorized user.
What's better having an iPhone or an iPad?
The invention of the iPad was one of those rare moments in which Apple convinced the market that a third device (something you carry in addition to your laptop and smart phone) was not only viable it was vital. I can remember the days before the iPad (29 talk about ancient). Back then tablets were just some weird gizmo that math teachers used with to write problems on a projector for the whole class. However the new modern wave of tablets is changing the very way we look atputing and there are a few very good reasons why you should invest in one now. There a Giant Touch Screen Seems obvious no? Yet it easy to forget just how much of a difference this one simple fact can make. Using any app is a lot easier with the large touch screen real estate. Netflix is particularly awesome on an iPad because of the bigger screen. While the iPad display isn exactly the iPhone Retina Display it still pretty good and more importantly a whole lot bigger. Watching videos on an iPad is excellent. Infinity-blade-epic-ipad-apple ( credit to kotaku) Maybe it just because there less scrolling involved but reading on a tablet is the definition of simple and intuitive. With the right apps a properly equipped iPad could be aplete reading device a gadget that does newspapers magazines blogs RSS and ebooks. If you travel a lot or read a large amount of online material then an iPad is perfect. Believe It Or Not Tablets Can Be A (Slightly Awkward) Phone Nowadays with the advent of the modern app store there really is an app for everything. And believe it or not that includes functions that were once the sole providence of cell phones. With a little ingenuity and some inventive app use you could theoretically replace your phone entirely with a tablet. Think about it. What does a phone do that a tablet doesn? Other than the obvious size differences a tablet lacks the ability to do phone-y things like calling and ing. Those things are provided by your cell phone carrier. But with a little work and some monetary cost to you you can do those things on a tablet too. Skype-calling-free-online Calling can be handled by the obvious choice Skype. This service is pretty darn awesome putting its app on every device you can think of including the iPad. The basic features (Skype to Skype calling) are free but with a few important disadvantages. You both have to be online and there no voicemail. However if youre willing to shell out a little cash at impressively cheap prices Skype will let you take calls offline and even record a voicemail. Just leave Skype running in the background and it acts exactly like a real phone. Here Ill put in a word of caution. Skype does not encourage you to use them as a replacement for a phone because you can call emergency services (the police firefighters) without a real phone. You may be better off using Skype for everything but still keeping around a prepaid phone with a minimum amount minutes just in case. As for ing that a little easier. There are hundreds of free apps that will assign you a phone number specifically for ing. Prepare to deal with some advertisements if you use a free ing app but hey- it still free. And of course all this calling and ing requires a 3G subscription to be always connected. So in the end youre still paying a wireless carrier but itll still be a lot cheaper. It Not A Laptop But It Almost As Productive I like to trumpet how laptops are capable of so many more things like serious typing PhotoShop editing video building websites or really any labor-intensive virtual task. However the hard truth is that while iPads are still not quite equal they are darn close. All of those advantages I listed above are making their way onto a touch screen in some form or another if theyre not already there. With some accessories and the right apps the iPad can be seriously productive. iPad-Keyboard-apple-accessory (image credit to bitesofapple) Typing requires a hefty investment but with a $7 Apple official Bluetooth keyboard you can on your iPad. I actually used this keyboard to on my iPod Touch before getting my laptop and I can attest to its quality. Apple sure charges a premium for it but the physical keyboard is a godsend for people like me who spend a lot of time writing. The writer apps for iPad aren exactly Microsoft Word but if you just want to get some words down on the road they work perfectly fine. As for visual projects like PhotoShop and video editing those are on their way or already here. Adobe haspanion apps for iPad that help with PhotoShop on PC. But those aren the real thing. That why they released a video of a totally redesigned PhotoShop running on an iPad. No news yet if itll be released but here hoping. Then of course Apple got movie editing covered with the release of iMovie for the iPad 2. The app looks like it designed with the usual Apple elegance so editing on the run might actually be possible without a PC. And from the looks of the iPad it not the only thing that shedding the PC. iMovie-for-iPad-apple-video-editor iPads Are Awesome Seems even more obvious no? Still think about it. If youve ever used an iPad you know what Im talking about. There just something (and I hate this word but Ill say it anyway) magical about manipulating a giant screen with just your finger. Controlling aplex device with your hands is subliminally appealing in a way that PCs can even hope to match and iPhones just don have. Using an iPad is fun. I can almost guarantee that if you do shell out for a shiny new tablet you will certainly enjoy it.
What are the best Mac-only applications?
As a person going into academics - the top programs you have to look forward to (by so far) aren Latexian - LaTeX editor autpletion live preview; there is no equivalent for Windowsn OmniGraffle - can make basically anything from circuit diagrams to basic flowcharts; there are good ones for Windows but not reallyn Versions - subversion client - but they do this incredibly well; there is no equivalent for Windowsn FaceTime - video chatting; Skype is the obvious equivalent but I feel FaceTime has a better video-chatting qualityn CyberDuck - this is an FTP client (also connects to AWS and Dropbox and the like) so it's a nice all-in-one. It still has features to be desired; closest equivalent might be WinSCP or FileZilla.n TextWrangler - this is the equivalent of Notepad++ except that it works a lot better with automatically-updated files like Dropbox (it auto-refreshes your files) and has a streamlined way of switching between files you're editing; the closest equivalent for Windows is Notepad++.n nOn a related note - within Physics - a significant amount of professors and graduate students use a Mac so being able to share files screen-sharing and FaceTime is so much better when everyone is using it.
What are the best macOS applications?
My favorite is macOS Mojave (or newer) because ites with free apps that eliminate the need for me to install any other thread party apps. That means that the apps I use are safe and secure and work seamlessly well in the Apple ecosystem. My best Mac Apps Safari The fastest most safe and secure web browser with enhanced privacy characteristics 1 Password manager (Autofill) is safe and secure Apple has been supplying encryption to its users since the 199s and has been proven to be safe and secure other third party password managers have had security issues and do not have a trillion dollarpany to back them up 1 Pages Numbers and Keynote eliminate the need for office software. I was a big fan of MacWrite back before Microsoft Word ever had a GUI and Pages is a much improved version of it. Textedit is used daily for all manner of notes as an outliner to collect thoughts for website articles as a draft for input into Pages it is so flexible that I practically use to for everything that does not require a spreadsheet. Preview looks simple but is also used on a dual basis to look at PDFs photos etc. and its simple built in editor allows me t do a quick touchup on pictures QuickLook is used countless times every day to peek instantly at files it also has a built in editor that can edit pictures immediately Notes integrates seamlessly with my iPhone and iPad so everything is always up to date everyone all at once its indispensable Messages is not only the only provably safe and secure messaging system its integrated across my iPhone and iPad so everything is always up to date everyone all at once its indispensable iMovie GarageBand Time Machine Automater Xcode etc. The list is actually very long Apple has done an amazing job of slowly but surely building in all the functions we actually need in a simple easy to use way so that we do not have to rely on third party software unless we are doing something professional or exotic. Still Needed Blu-ray player Apple was part of the consortium to support the superior version of Blu-ray (Microsoft was backing the opposing camp with a kludge based on DVD that was not for for the future) so it was a surprise that the the consortium finally released Blu-ray none of theputerpanies could afford a license to include Blu-ray movie playback software (that correct not even Microsoft has Blu-ray playback capability but in many bundles they include a third party player). I do read and burn Blu-ray discs (blanks) on our Macs but have to use a third party app to actually play one of my many Blu-ray discs. 1 GraphViz A viewer for QuickLook 1 Edit feature in TextEdit 1 MacDraw An up to date replacement would be awesome the original MacDraw was extremely useful for those of use who do not need or don't have the skills for a professional illustration package 1 AppCleaner This little app throws away all the little debris that is left behind when an app is thrown into the garbage. It works so well that Apple should just cut this guy a $1 million check and take over ownership of the app then bundle it with macOS 1 Handbrake Handbrake integration into iMovie and Final Cut Pro would be nice. Final Cut Pro works extremely well as is and can be greatly enhanced with Apple Compressor but there are still a few occasions where an old piece of video needs to be transcoded into something modern which is where Handbrakees in. 1 Handbrake is open source so just integrate it exact as is and it will work fine Just add an option to use Handbrake when needed. 1 Completely Unneeded Anti-Virus Anti-Malware Anti-Spyware These are useless apps 1 macSO already proven Anti-Virus Anti-Malware Anti-Spyware built in so there is no need for anything else. 1 Cleaner apps Over the long run they do nothing that is actually useful if there is a problem then just make sure you have at least 2% of the drive free (if not then use the new About This MacStorageManage feature to clean it up) and then if there is still an issue you simply boot up while holding down the Shift key this will purge all the caches and clean the system then just boot up normally. 1 Password Managers Use Apple AutoFill which is more convenient and far more secure. 1 Web Browsers Nothing is as fast and as secure as Safari 1 Cloud Storage Nothing has the integration of iCloud 1 Screen Brightness Manager Mojave has Night Shift which works smoother than anything else I have seen 1
What Mac apps are must-haves?
I list the following apps with the caveat that they might not be must-have for everyone. Someone who doesn't use theirputer often might only need Finder an adequately featured web browser and a editor. I use myputer for much more than simple tasks so it's not possible to be productive without the help of many applications. I do think in many cases that there are suitable alternatives to these programs but the class of programs these are in are essential to me and these are the best I've found in each class. Password Management 1Password ($)nThis list might be intolerably long if I mentioned all of the web applications I used. Because of that 1Password is essential for me 3 each of those apps require credentials. It's easy to create unique login credentials for each of those web apps that I use; then it's really easy to log into each of these sites. It's also quite nice to have my credit card and personal information automatically filled in so that I can get through lengthy menus quickly. The Firefox add-on for 1Password in particular is excellent enabling me to login without leaving home row. Messaging Client Adium (free)nThis one has already been mentioned here by others so Ill make it brief Adium is an instant messaging application that connects to a variety of messaging services. Because there no one dominant service and my contacts are spread across them I use Adium to keep them all within the same interface. Application Launcher Alfred (with Powerpack) (free; $18 with highly-rmended Powerpack)nTechnically there already an application launcher installed on every Mac Spotlight. Spotlight isn as fully featured as some of its fellow launchers though and I think theyre worth a look because they save time. I chose Alfred here not because it the most fully featured 3 I just think Running with Crayons is doing an awesome job making Alfred super easy and super quick to do things on my Mac. Based on the current product which is currently in beta I'm confident that as it grows the crew at Running with Crayons knows what they are doing. Getting Things Done Do Things ($)nI'll be honest I've been wavering as of late on Things having bought the application a couple of years ago. Most of Things' petitors are expensive 3 OmniFocus and The Hit List are two thate up often 3 and I can't drop $ or $. The issue is syncing. The makers of Things have been promising an elegant syncing solution for a long time and haven't delivered. Despite that unless I can convince myself that another solution is worth that much more than Things it hard for me to switch. Having said all that I do know is that when I use Things I get more done. The proof is in its logbook; I check off a lot of tasks. It helps me take a mental quota of everything I need to do so I can worry about what I need to do once and then get going. It has an elegant interface for that. Syncing Dropbox (free)nI have one folder in Dropbox of files I want to keep in sync between my Macs but lots of files in it so I can keep my applications in sync across my Macs and iPhone like 1Password TextExpander and Notational Velocity. It works extremely well for the purposes I use it for and so I would be skeptical to any alternative. File Management Fork Lift ($)nWithout a file management application on my Mac the state of my files is not good. Fork Lift and a lot of other file management applications use a dual pane window so it easy to organize and manage folder structures and files. It not just that though; Fork Lift is packed with features plenty of which Im still uncovering. I like that it can handle FTP connections and Im a big fan of using synclets to keep folders in sync. If you have a lot of files and need help keeping order Fork Lift can help. Note Taking Notational Velocity (free)nI think a note-taking application is important for someone who at theirputer keyboard a lot because it doesn make a ton of sense to interface with a notebook and aputer if you can use just one. I like Notational Velocity because it has a simple interface and yet I can find my notes (via search). It still needs better tagging functionality and I can decide whether I like it more with folders. Some other note-taking applications (e.g. Evernote free) are feature-heavy which I think makes them weaker. A strong note-taking app lets me take new notes and find and edit old notes as quickly as possible. Text Editor TextMateor Coda ($53or $99)nIm torn. These aren crucial parts of my workflow because I don do a ton of development. When I do write bits of code however I can imagine using other applications. Coda great because it one-window web development. But TextMate is simple yet powerful and I have dual monitors for a reason right? RSS Reader NetNewsWire (free)nEven though there are plenty of other ways to efficiently tackle information I still use RSS because it usually much more on topic (though less conversational than) than another source of information for me Twitter. I can filter through loads of relevant articles in a minimal amount of time. Basically I chose NetNewsWire because it's the best at doing that though Reeder beta (free) has a beautiful interface.

What is the best iPad PDF annotating tool with Google Drive support?
After scouring the internet for a solution I have finally found one that seems very good (and free!). Foxit PDF s is a clean user-friendly PDF reader and annotator. Using its cloud feature you can connect to Google Drive by logging in within Foxit. Then you can choose which folders to sync between Google Drive and Foxit. The amazing part is that any annotations you make to the PDFs are automatically synced with Google Drive and appear when you open the PDF through Drive in your web browser on anyputer!
How do I fill a form which is PDF?
It depends on the way the form is implemented in the PDF If it a PDF form it can be filled up by pretty much any PDF software that has option for filling up PDF forms like Adobe Reader Adobe Acrobat Nuance Power PDF Foxit Reader Wondershare PDFelement PDF Expert Evince Okular LibreOffice Draw etc. However if it a PDF with dynamic XFA forms then you choice is pretty limited. The only PDF softwares other than Adobe Reader and Adobe Acrobat which support opening and filling up of dynamic XFA forms are Master PDF Editor Nitro Pro and Foxit Phantom PDF. So if you use anything other than these five PDF softwares you can fill up dynamic XFA forms.
Is the iPad pro a worthy buy?
It depends really like all things. What are your needs for an iPad (what do you use it for?) and do you want the most cutting edge technology Apple currently offers in their iPad lineup. If you do pro things like edit and export videos in photoshop or youre an artist or anything else then sure the iPad Pro will suit your needs well. If youre on the other end of the spectrum where you just want to the best and most powerful iPad available (like me) then the iPad Pro will suffice. It has the most power (CPU wise) out of all the ipads it has the best design (minimal bezels on the screen) BUT it has Face ID which some people don like. Me personally I love it but some swear by Touch ID which is fine because it much faster than Face ID. In which case you could get a normal iPad 1.2 iPad mini or iPad Air all of which are much cheaper than the iPad Pro and do *basically* the same thing. The iPad Air is literally an iPad Pro with Apple Pencil support( all iPads do though but iPad Pro has generation 2 which is leagues better) and Touch ID. Let just break down some of the major differences between an iPad Air and an iPad Pro iPad pro Minimal bezels and so has Face ID and looks nicer. Has the A12X chip the most powerful Apple offers Has a much better camera than the iPad Air with smart HDR and a flash and it 12 megapixels (but seriously who the hell uses their iPad for photography?!!! Just use your phone or a dedicated camera) Has a nicer Liq Retina screen with 12Hz refresh rate ( it less latency when using the Apple Pencil 2 and is a smoother experience overall) Has a better designed Apple Pencil 2 which clips onto the side of the iPad Pro using magnets to charge and pair whereas the iPad Air uses the clunky Apple Pencil 1 which plugs into the lightning port of the iPad to charge and pair The iPad Air Touch ID ( you might prefer it) much cheaper at ua3479 here in the UK but it often around ua345 in other places whereas the iPad Pro is ua3749 Offers the same core experience as an iPad Pro but with none of the things mentioned above ( which for most people isn TOO important Overall I think that the iPad Pro is worth it if you think the features and needs that Ive mentioned above apply to you. Me personally? I prefer the iPad Pro but I bought an iPad Air because it suited my needs better and because Im a student I needed an Apple Pencil aswell for notes an iPad Pro would break the bank for me currently. I LIKE the iPad Pro a lot but do I need all those extra features? Not really the iPad Air does exactly what I need it for and so I bought that instead.
