Your hosts, Shane Mattox, Stacy Baldwin and Peter Fisher discuss Drawing apps. Phil Rood, cartoonist, illustrator and co-host of the Sketching Comedy Podcast, stops by on this episode of I’d App That!
Almost as intriguing as Phil Rood is Peter Fishers review on his Pick of the Week: Hopper.
Microsoft is Taking Slack Head On
Microsoft is taking Slack head on, and reportedly doing it under the Skype umbrella. According to MS Power User, the software giant is developing new messaging software that closely mirrors Slack functionality. The new effort, aptly named “Skype Teams”, and it promises to cater to the same large teams and newsrooms that already use Slack every day. App Reviews
Phil Rood brings a few Drawing Apps to I’d App That! to check out. He discusses three drawing apps that are fluid and easy to use to help people of all skill levels who love to draw.
MediBang Paint Pro, is a free digital painting program available on Windows and Mac OS X. Both MediBang Paint Tablet and Pro have cloud saving. Therefore, allowing users to efficiently work on the same files at home, in their offices and anywhere else they roam.
Autodesk® SketchBook® is an intuitive painting and drawing application. Sketchbook created its’ app for people of all skill levels, who love to draw. They have reimagined the paint engine, so SketchBook delivers more fluid pencils and natural painting. As a result it keeps the connection clean and simple. With SketchBook, capture everything from your smallest doodles to your biggest ideas, all in one place, no matter where you are.
Innovated by Savage Interactive, Procreate is a painting app for iPad developed specifically for the iPad platform, and only the iPad platform. In other words, it did not originate as an iPhone or desktop PC app and was later adapted for the iPad, as is the case with many other art apps. Procreate has come a long way since my original review of version 1.01, eliminating almost every one of my “cons” from that review, while maintaining performance, intuitive workflow, and adding innovative new features.
What is Hopper App?
Hopper app is primarily designed to help you plan your travel at extremely competitive (read cheap) prices. It tells you when to book flights as well as saves you money in the process. Here is the latest update after a year. Let’s see how this nifty app has been faring.
Choose your travel dates
The first thing the app asks you to do is select your destination (it assumes your take-off location based on your current GPS location). You can select an option for Round trip or one-way trip but unfortunately, this option is only available for iOS devices for now.From there, it will show you the flight costs for the next several months, and it indicates the cost based on colors. Green indicates the price for that day is a deal, yellow is standard, orange is a little high, and red is a total rip-off.
Based on these color coded calendars, users can select a date for departure as well as a return date and the Hopper app will give you the projected costs of the flight. It will give you an estimated cost, how much you will be saving, and the absolute latest you will want to purchase your tickets within that time frame or the prices could rise after a certain date. If you are still unsure on the price, select the ‘watch this trip’ option that gives push notification on best deals on your devices.
