So far, Apple has suffered a few troubles with its rollout of the . First, orders of both the Pencil and Smart Keyboard (two must-have accessories for the tablet) have been out of stock both online and in many Apple Stores. The good news, though, is that Pencils are in the process of reaching customers who placed early orders online, and the Apple Pencil is also available to purchase from a number of Best Buy locations across the United States.

The catalog is a page you should bookmark. Though I don’t own an iPad Pro yet, I’m nevertheless going to be earmarking iOS apps to play on the big-screen device once the 12-inch tablet arrives. Having the option of connecting a Bluetooth controller (like SteelSeries’ Stratus, for instance) will be something I’m looking for my iPad Pro games to offer.

If you’re a gamer with an iPad Pro, then, MFi-compatible apps are what you should on the lookout for. Fortunately, AfterPad can help. The site, as MacStories’ Federico Viticci explains, offers gamers an online catalog detailing a list of MFi-compatible games. These are grouped by the date of release, or by the editor’s choice of the best controller-compatible applications available on the App Store. Thanks to the iPad Pro, gaming using virtual, on-screen controls (much like drawing with your finger) seems to have become a thing of the past.

Apple’s iPad Pro lets iOS users get serious work done, and it allows artists to draw using the impressive Pencil. But it also provides gamers with the biggest iOS device screen ever. As such, early reviews of the iPad Pro celebrated the device as a portable gaming machine, but also recommended the use of an MFi (Made for ) game controller, too.


The Best iPhone and iPad Applications for Time Management

Time management is a challenge for almost everybody, irrespective of who they are or what they do. Even individuals who try and run their lives like clockwork can have issues staying on task, being punctual and recalling the things they need to accomplish on a daily basis. There are plenty of reasons for this. The main reason is that, thanks to smartphones and tablets, many of us have sorts of distractions at our fingertips just asking for our attention. In this article we’re going to show you how to use that iphone or iPad as a time management tool rather than as a time management wrecking ball.

Make use of Instapaper. Instapaper is software you can use on your iPhone, your iPad and even on your pc. It’s one of those “read later” applications which helps you save time. In the daytime how often do you encounter a bunch an article or a website that you really want to get into but don’t have the time to do so properly? And how many times have you allowed your schedule to be derailed because you failed to think you’ll remember the article or website later so you read or explored it right then? Instapaper integrates with Twitter and other programs to enable you to save all of those links so that you can read it at a later time. The hyperlinks are all saved to one central account. This makes it easy to use any device you like (personal computer, tablet or phone) to catch up on those links when you actually have the time for them.

Wunderlist is among the better apps. It’s your basic to-do list software but it doesn’t get caught up in a bunch of heavy graphics or a complex user interface. You could sit down with this application every day and enter all of the things you wish to accomplish. It does not cost anything to use. Besides being simple to use, it is simple to sync with a number of devices. All you should do is train yourself to check this software as frequently as you check your email and you’ll see just how straightforward it is to stay on task.

Evernote is super great and handy. It’s a central place to organize just about everything: your emails, downloads, photographs, notes, thoughts, and so forth. It can also be synced between devices–including a personal computer–and is very easy to use with other apps like Wunderlist. The only real drawback to this software is that it’s not absolutely free. It’s possible to pay $5 each month for a monthly subscription or you can spend $45 and invest in a year’s worth of service.

Agenda is the must have calendar app. There are lots of reasons this is true but the main reason it is true is that it can be synced both to iCalendar (the calendar iPhones and Macs use) and Google Calendar. This makes managing your calendar easier if you’re a person with a PC and an iPhone as you just enter your information into one place and then you can access it on any device you wish. Additionally, it’s really attractive.

The number of time management tools available for downloading is very large. These are the most effective, but you are going to turn up plenty more with some additional research.
