iPad off-line apps wishlist for writer/podcaster, Oct.2010

I am quite new to iPad/mobile devices, but not to Apple. I have toolbox dreams like this:

  1. I write prose, poetry and essays, maintain a WP blog, and record and edit podcast.
  2. I produce and edit in .doc, .docx, .rtf., pdf, EPUB, .txt, .html, mp3, .aiff and .jpg.
  3. I want to bring ALL of my working library with me (3.1 gigs) and work with all archive-types on the road, independant of wifi-connection.

Which apps for iPad?

  • doc/docx/rtf/txt: Apple Pages for iPad is getting really bad press. What else is there?
  • publish to EPUB: Is it even possible on iPad? Thinking of how difficult and imprecise it is on laptop/desktop!
  • pdf: Edit and/or production to set size, trim for web pulishing
  • html: something like BBEdit would be fine, with layout view in browser
  • mp3/aiff/wav: Simple cropping and save, if possible simple effects
  • jpg: cropping, resizing, shrinking

Wishful dreaming? I mean – how can I even get documents on to the iPad AND edit them?

  1. There ARE several ways to get documents onto the iPad, but not until iOS4.2 will there be anything like folders to keep stuff in. November 2010 – and I am waiting for that!
