A Batch of New Drawings

July 6th, 2012

Been a while since I’ve updated my site. I went ahead and gathered a bunch of new flickr postings and added them here. Hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed creating them :) All of these were created on the iPad with Procreate. If you haven’t seen this app, you should get it and learn to love it, because it’s one of the best drawing apps out there on any platform.

Started using Goodnotes this evening with the ByZero Pen, and it’s pretty nice. I decided to put together a quick list of observations regarding the app. Hope this helps in regards to feedback with the app:

NotesPlus Bye Bye Hello Remarks

February 2nd, 2012

I ended coming to the same conclusion, but not after losing much critical data. I was saved because I emailed the .PDF’s to myself. However, that being said, with the amount of headache and issues people are having with this latest incarnation of NotesPlus, I am quite weary of dedicating any serious time, effort and data to the app. So, I have opted to move on to a new app. I am a Notability user, but I don’t like the notebook management nor the inking of the app, so I’ve found something which I think will suit my workflow better. Readdle has recently released a rather robust Note Taking app with fantastic customizability and .PDF support. The app is called Remarks, and it runs for $4.99 on the app store. I am going to move over all of my stuff from NotesPlus to this app. After using it for a couple hours last night, I didn’t encounter any Show Stopping bugs, and from my research on the company, it looks like they really focus on stability alongside features and improving overall user Productivity.

Hit up the link to check out what the app has to offer:

I’ll keep an eye out for NotesPlus in the future, but honestly, it’s going into the garage with that cool car I just haven’t got around to fixing yet.

Sad I know. It has so much potential.

Cheers,

Numbers+Kanban

April 22nd, 2011

So recently I’ve gotten in to the Personal Kanban way of doing things and have decided to softly implement it for my day to day work. I’ve looked for a digital solution which was secure, and while there are a bunch of great tools out there, ultimately they all live in the cloud, and well, being in an Enterprise environment, I can’t use their solutions. So, I decided to go ahead and put together a solution using Numbers. The reason for this is that I am able to maintain a Backlog and a Kanban board in a single Project File. While it isn’t as sexy as an always on and collaborative ready tool, it does the job. Anyway, here are a couple of screen shots of the Kanban, and you can also download the Numbers file if you want to check it out.
