best apps ipad pro

You can’t go a day online without reading or hearing about some new app for your iPhone that you’ve never heard of. But, what about the iPad Pro and that fancy new Apple Pencil? With more than 3 million units sold in the fourth quarter alone there’s surely a market to discover new apps. So, we’ve taken it upon ourselves to highlight five iPad Pro apps that are taking advantage of the new Apple Pencil that you’ve probably never heard of, but will want to download today.

GoodNotes 4

For many people, when you reference taking notes, they reach for their pad and pen. Today, with the iPad Pro and Apple Pencil there are new options, like GoodNotes 4. The app lets you create notebooks, and then individual pages within each. For example, you could create a notebook for each one of your work assignments or even classes. The best part of the app?  Everything is indexed as well, so search is super simple. It will run you about 8 bucks though in the App Store.

Procreate

The ultimate painting and drawing app, Procreate has been taken to new levels with the Apple Pencil. For those that are using it for either business or pleasure, the app gives you multiple brushes and palettes to bring your imagination to life. The app also sports ultra high-definition canvases, 64-bit color, 250 levels of undo and redo, and availability in 15 languages. This app is also not free, but for just $5, the features and functionality greatly outweigh the price tag.

Evernote

Sure, you may of actually heard of Evernote, but it’s functionality with the iPad Pro is something to mention regardless. Evernote is all about, well, notes and being able to access them any and everywhere. Create a note, sync it with all your devices and be able to seamlessly access and edit it. That’s the basics, you can also use it to collect just about anything – from web content, to-do lists, sketches and more. Probably the coolest feature includes being able to actually rest your hand on the iPad when using the Apple Pencil with no inadvertent marks.

Apple iMovie

Ok, ok. You definitely have heard of iMove before, but it’s just so much different and better on the iPad Pro. We had to mention it! Bigger canvases for editing, higher resolution clips, and a better processor makes it kind of kick butt in the world of editing on an iPad. One possible downside is the price tag. At almost $15, it’s pretty expensive, but if you’re a serious YouTuber or professional editor, it’s worth the cost to be able to edit on the fly.

MyPingo

Hey, that’s us! MyPingo is new to the iPad Pro app world, but it’s making a splash. The app, available as a free download in the Apple App Store, gives seasoned artists and coloring enthusiasts of all ages and skill levels alike the ability to have a unique coloring experience. Unlike similar apps, MyPingo makes content from over 40 of the world’s top published illustrators, while at the same time providing users with an experience that accurately and realistically emulates the sensation of coloring in print books. Oh, did we mention it’s free?
