Justin it would be nice if you guys could copy some of the ways iAnnotate does their interface, excluding the bizarre file handling feature.Originally Posted by Justin Brock
I like being able to hide tool bars for a cleaner interface if needed. I want to see the content I am working with like Apple's Pages.
The ability to lock out the keyboard was a nice start, but you need more.
Here is a tip for those who would like to practice with Notability or possibly Pages over the weekend for creating content using only the iPad.
Create a report about the JAPANESE 8.9 QUAKE AND TSUNAMI that includes still shots of destruction, audio, maps, and additional notes. Use some of the ideas mentioned in earlier posts I have made here about Notability and content creation then add a generous amount of your own ingenuity.
The practice will make you that much better when it comes to the pressure of a classroom or a business project.
There is considerable video footage from AVN/HKN TV on CNN or FOX and on You Tube. that would be a source of audio while you are creating your notes if you use Notability to record it from say your TV playing while you work.
Sendai airport japan is easy to find using the iPad map app. switch to hybrid view then zoom until you recognize the arial view seen from the helicopter video shots. Play around until you have a feel for the area and spot other locations seen in the videos. Take screen shots of what you see (home and power button until photo click).
Play You Tube clips and make screen shots. View news on the web and rip of images by holding a finger on them until the save image dialog pops up. The iPad 2 may add a bunch more options. Use earlier trick mentioned by using the built in Photo app to crop your pictures.
Copy and paste from browser or use Notabilities feature for inserting a web page into your notes.
What happened to the loaded Japanese train or that ferry that disappeared? How many souls could be lost? What was their last know position? Map it.
How extensive is the danger from the two reactors that are overheating? Map it. Add notes about reactor design, pinpoint all reactor locations compare to fault lines, etc.
Add your ideas here...
create a family of notes sorted by subject.
How many options do you have? Which in your opinion is the best way?
Post your observations here to help those who are new to iPad with iPad 2 to get started with the best content creation tools.
Get good enough at it and you could get a job creating content for CNN or FOX which could have done far better job if they had the talent.
The point is. A sharp individual can do a lot with the tools Apple gives you in the app store. The more you use it the faster you get as you can create notes as fast as you can think.
Post your thoughts here to advance the ability of others to use various tools to create notes for their own use.
